NOTE: When doing regular baby massage at home or in class it is ideal to choose a time when your baby is in the "quiet alert" state. This means she is awake, alert & not crying or fussy. You should take a time out from massage if your baby has fever, is hungry, needs a diaper change or is sleeping/or nap time. Before attending a class ~ Always ask your healthcare provider if there is any reason why you should not massage your baby.
