Dads Baby Massage & Yoga Workshop

10am - 12pm, 17th November 2018

 

PROGRAMME

This workshop is specifically for dads to give them the opportunity to interact with their little ones in a safe and supportive environment.  It is a hands-on workshop covering the basics of Baby Massage and Baby Yoga. The workshop will cover moves to aid digestion and sleep, tips for comforting a grumpy baby and give you ideas to take away for playing with your little one. You will also be given a bottle of oil and handouts to take home.

An Australian study of infant massage and father-baby bonding, found that at 12 weeks old, babies who were massaged (by their fathers) greeted their fathers with more eye contact, smiling, vocalising and touch than those in the control group, and the fathers experienced improved self-esteem as a parent due to the increased involvement.

There is a kitchen adjacent to the hall that dads are welcome to relax in during the course, and if little ones need feeding, they can pop in to do so during the workshop.
