Colic-y-Baby Massage Testimonial

Mom massaging Francesca Just had to send a note of THANKS!

After trying for years to have a child our prayers were answered when we finally gave birth to our daughter Francesca. As a first time mother I knew that our lives would be filled with one joyful blessing after another.

Fast forward six sleepless weeks and this bleary eyed mom was left feeling helpless as her angel transformed into a colicky terror. No matter what we tried from the hours of six to midnight and 10 am to noon our daughter would be screaming and curling up in pain NONSTOP and we were just helpless! We tried it all and when the pediatrician told us sometimes it can last until the baby is  3-4 months old we just felt hopeless!

It was horrible and then my brother gave us the gift of INFANT MASSAGE.

My husband, ever the skeptic, was making jokes saying “what’s next a pedicure” but we both agreed it was worth a shot. Honestly we didn’t expect much. Boy were we wrong! Not only did Marie-Josee take the time to find out what we wanted to get out of the session but she talked to us about how massage could help with everything from better bonding with the baby to colic….. YES colic!!!! We couldn’t believe it!

Francesca ended up having her 10 am colic attack during the session and to our amazement my daughter actually quieted down as the massage went on!!

NEVER in six weeks had that happened! Both my husband and I were just in shock and we couldn’t wait to learn how to do it ourselves.  Marie-Josee patiently showed us the proper techniques and explained the “why” of each move. It has changed our life and Francesca loves her massage session with mommy and daddy! It has come part of our daily bedtime routine. As for the colic, it is like a bad distant dream because we also do the massage just before her typical “colic hours” and it really soothes her. Marie-Josee gave us back our angel and more than hope she gave us an easy-to-follow plan that has made all the difference!

Infant Massage Institute: What is Colic?

Easing Colic Through MassageWhat is colic???

In the 1950’s,Dr. Morris Wessel, Pediatrician defines an infant with colic as one who:
The rule of three:
• fussing or crying lasting for a total of three hours a day
• occurring on more than three days in one week
• for a period of three weeks
By experience, I noticed that colic:
• Typically begins at three weeks of age
• Usually Gone by three and a half month of age

I have been working in the massage field for 18 years, I met a lot of unhappy parents with colicky baby, their doctor just told them to wait for 3months!!!until it goes away! Learning the massage technic for colicky baby can make a great difference: when baby is happy! mommy is happy! Learning how to massage your baby will also enhances the bonding between you and your child.
