Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Baby massage can help relieve an infant's gassy stomach, soothe crankiness and bring children "harmony and wholeness," says Kluck. Yet some parents my fear injuring their child in an attempt to help. Certified infant massage instructor Kluck, who owns a Hollywood massage company, lays out the basics of massaging a baby in this helpful book, which details the practice's benefits, origins and procedures. Her advice is gentle and calming, which should set nervous parents at ease. Kluck gives step-by-step directions for massaging babies' legs, feet, tummies, chests, arms, hands, faces and backs, and she offers special chapters on calming colic and "supporting the special needs child." Line drawings demonstrate her techniques, and other sections answer frequently asked questions such as "How often should I massage my baby?" and "What if my baby cries?"

Format: Paperback
The intention of this book is nice. The content is just too much! The onesie is cute - for a few washings, and the print is so small - hard to read. I know the subject is important, I just think it could have been delivered in a much more concise manner. There is a newer book out there now by Suzanne P. Reese titled: Baby Massage - Soothing Strokes For Healthy Growth, and it's compact, easy-to-read and she gets right to the point without the need for so much text before you finally get to the strokes.....and Ms Reese's book has photos of real babies - not drawings. Much cuter and fun to look at!

As an infant massage instructor I use this book as supplemental material in my class. I like showing parents what resources are available on the market and they always seem drawn to this one with the colorful onsie. I don't think it would work great to actually put it on a baby, as the font is somewhat small and heard to read but its good as a reference

My sister gave this book to me after she saw it on the "Live with Regis and Kelly" show. My baby has colic and the book taught me some ways to help soothe her. The cute onesie has all the directions on the shirt so I could just follow the arrows to give my baby a massage. It was so easy and I have to say that it worked! I highly recommend this book and baby shirt to all moms.

I love this book. I received it as a gift at my baby shower and I massaged my baby using the techniques in the book. The baby onesie that comes with the book is so cute and it really helped teach me how to massage. It's easy to follow and has lots of important info that I didn't know. I highly recommend it to everyone.

This book and the onesie that comes with it are so helpful to me now that I have a 4 month old baby. I was pretty timid when it came to touching my new baby because she was premature but I learned how to use the techniques in the book . The shirt made everything so easy. I recommend this book to everyone with a baby!
