Studies of babies have found regular massage helps treat constipation, colic and sleeping problems as well as helping babies gain weight at a faster rate. Add a 15 minute "Bub Rub" to your postnatal massage. Whether at your home or at Suzie’s home in Bardon, your carer can bring bub back for a Bub Rub after your massage. Sometimes, you don’t have the luxury of having a carer to take Bub away. While it’s not ideal, it’s better than nothing at all. Many a time over the years, I have performed a soothing Bub Rub to help bub sleep so you can have your massage.
If you are coming for a postnatal massage you don't need to book in a Bub Rub, we can just include it on the day if baby is unsettled and not sleeping.
"I was worried when my Bub kept waking up every 10-15 mins - he just wouldn't settle long enough for me to have my massage would he!
And after a few tries of rocking the bouncer with your foot while still managing to massage me, only for him to wake up again, you suggested to give him a Bub Rub.
Well I just wanted to let you know that essential oil blend combined with your magic hands really worked! My baby slept for three hours after the massage that day!"
