GIVE YOUR BABY A MASSAGE

MY BABY GIRL DESERVES THE BEST. I ALWAYS GIVE HER A MINI MASSAGE OR A FULL ONE AFTER SHE BATHES....I USE THE AVEENO BABY CALMING COMFORT BATH SET IT SMELLS SO GOOD. 
I USE THE CALMING COMFORT LOTION WHILE MASSAGING HER SKIN. SHE JUST SMILES AND TURNS OVER RIGHT ON TIME LOL. HERE ARE SOME STEPS TO A GREAT BABY MASSAGE.
These techniques are good for all precrawling babies. For the best chance of success, don't try a massage just before or after a meal or when she needs a nap. When you think she's ready.

THE LEGSHer legs are a good place to begin, as they're less-sensitive than some parts of her body. Using a little lotion wrap your hands around one of her thighs and pull down, one hand after the other, squeezing gently, as if you're "milking" her leg. 
THE FEETTake one foot and gently rotate it a few times in each direction, then stroke the top of her foot from the ankle down to the toes. 

THE SOLESUse your thumbs to trace circles all over the bottom of each foot.
THE TOESTo finish off the feet, grab each toe between your thumb and forefinger and gently pull until your fingers slip off the end. Repeat 
THE ARMSTake one of her arms in your hands and repeat the milking motion from her armpit all the way to her wrist. Then, take her hand and gently rotate the wrist a few times in each direction. Switch arms and repeat.
THE HANDSTrace tiny circles all over the palm of eachhand with your thumbs.

THE FINGERSGently take a finger between your thumb and forefinger and pull, letting her finger slip through your grasp. Repeat on all ten fingers.
THE CHESTPut your hands together in prayer position over her heart. Then stroke your hands outward and lightly flatten the palms down over her chest. Repeat several times.
THE CHEST (continued)Place one hand flat across the top of her chest. Stroke it gently down to her thighs. Repeat the motion, alternating hands, several times.
THE BACKRoll your baby onto her tummy. Using your fingertips, trace tiny circles on either side of her spinefrom the neck down to the buttocks.
THE BACK (continued)Finish with some long, firm strokes from her shoulders all the way to her feet. When you're done, put on her diaper and cuddle or breastfeed her. She'll likely doze right off
