My mother helped me with massaging my daughter everyday. She would sit on the floor with her legs stretched out and she would make my daughter lay down on her legs. She would then slowly pour droplets of homemade baby oil on her hands, legs etc and would slowly massage her and my daughter used to enjoy these sessions. She would laugh and giggle and my mother would sing to her or talk to her while she did that so it was such a great lovable massage session. My mother would then give gentle exercises for her hands and legs and would allow her to lay down for about 15mins. Then, she would give her a nice warm bath and then my daughter would sleep like an angel. The most awesome 30mins which my daughter just loved.
