Baby Massage

Rubba-bubba baby massage offers a small and friendly baby massage class, in and around Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Swansea. It gives parents the opportunity to learn a fun and relaxing new skill, spend important quality time with their new baby, enjoy the many benefits that baby massage can offer and chat with other new parents.

 

How it works

Rubba-bubba specialises in small and relaxed classes of 10-12 mothers and babies to avoid an overwhelming environment, ensure quality of teaching and to provide individual support. All class massage oil, soothing music, handouts and tea and refreshments are all provided in class at no extra cost. Baby massage is such a special and valuable gift to give your baby, it’s so simple but very effective!

 

We now offer baby + child sleep coaching, informal first aid for babies and early days sessions with Tash-for those who need little help with starting a routine, need feeding support, not sure where to start with weaning or just need a good chat to make sure everything is going ok-these wonderful baby’s are life changing and don’t come with a manual!!

Benefits

The Benefits Of Baby Massage

Touch is very powerful. We use it naturally and without thinking to calm, relax, reassure or heal. A simple hug says a lot. For example if our baby is upset, we may cuddle them or rub their back.

‘Babies have a biological need for close physical affection. Nothing is more important to their emotional, physical and intellectual development than a comforting cuddle or a loving touch.'(Dr.Lin Day, 2008).

Massaging your baby is an extension of this natural impulse. Infant massage has been around for thousands of years, however in the UK, it has only become popular in the last 10 years. It is a wonderful way of spending quality time with your new baby doing such a simple and beneficial activity together. Studies show that not everyone has ‘love at first sight’ with their baby; (after an initial wave of maternal feelings) nothing can prepare you for this amazing journey as a parent-but we can make it easier on the way!

Constipation much better, he’s going daily now and colic definitely seems a bit Better! He’s really enjoying the massages too, so glad you came when you did, I’m definitely seeing an improvement so thank you very much ? x

I really enjoyed our newborn colic session with Tasha. My little one had been struggling with colic at nights and with help and understanding from Tasha improved a lot. My little one loved her daily massages and has settled into routine and is all round a happier baby. I would highly recommend Tasha

It’s a lovely way of bonding

A huge thank you Tash for giving us the tools we needed to get our little girl to sleep. As new parents you are bombarded with advice on how best to get a full nights sleep, we found this very overwhelming and didn’t know what to do for the best! This is when we contacted Tash. She gave us an easy plan to follow and slowly but surely our little girl started sleeping through the night. A huge thank you for all of your support and advice, we would highly recommend the sleep coaching, wish we had done it sooner!
