Tips for massaging your baby with oil

  1. The perfect time to give your little one a massage is right after a long soak in the tub. A warm bath opens his pours and relaxes him so once you've dried him off, rub your baby down with some scent free natural oil or lotion.
  2. Do not put the lotion or oil directly onto your baby's skin. First, put it between your palms and rub together. You want your hands to be saturated with oil/lotion and the rubbing motion will warm your palms up before you place them on your baby.
  3. Begin just below the chest, rub your baby's stomach in a rhythmic clockwise motion. This will actually help your baby's digestive tract in addition to feeling nice on the skin.
  4. Gently rub each extremity, by putting slight pressure on your babies arms and legs. It will also feel nice to flex your babies joints and rub behind knees and elbows.
  5. Massage the feet in a circular motion, remembering to put slight pressure on the ball of each toe.
  6. When rubbing your baby's back, keep it rhythmic but most importantly , do not press on your baby's spine.
  7. Enjoy this beautiful bonding experience between parent and baby!

how to clean a whirlpool bath tub

There are three main things to tackle when cleaning a hot tub or whirlpool bath. Those things are:

1. Bacteria
2. Grease
3. Grime and dirt

To address all three of these issues you'll likely need separate products. There are liquid versions of the degreaser and cleaner, and there are tablet versions for sanitizing.

Simply fill up the whirlpool bath with warm water, put the cleaning liquid in the cleaning outlet (or if you don't have this, just pour it into the bath). Put the tablet in the bath and then just run it.

This should do the job.

Can relaxation techniques help with lower back pain in pregnancy. I am trying to avoid taking any drugs, even the ones that they say are safe for the baby?

Relaxation techniques are a great thing to learn. You can use it to help you counter any stress from back pain but then will also be able to use it in pregnancy. Another good suggestion are hot and cold compresses. You can soak in a warm bath or put a hot water bottle on your back. You can alternate between hot and cold compresses.
