Weleda: Discover the Benefits of Infant Massage {Giveaway}

Weleda Calendula

Infant massage has many wonderful benefits, from helping improve a baby’s sleeping patterns and digestion to providing parents and caregivers with a natural way to bond with a baby through the power of touch. In the following video, Patricia Pol, Weleda esthetician and certified baby massage therapist, shows you how to massage your little one using Weleda’s 100% certified-natural Calendula Baby Care products.

Weleda is one of the leading manufacturers of natural skincare products for babies and adults.  Their products are made with natural ingredients that are safe for baby’s delicate and sensitive skin.  I have used their products in the past and I am already a big fan!

I started doing infant massage with my son when he was a newborn and I still give him a massage everyday after his bath (he is 1 1/2 years old).  It is now part of our bed time routine and I absolutely love spending the extra time with him bonding and connecting. He loves his massage as well, it relaxes him so much that he has even fallen asleep during a massage before.

I was happy to try Weleda’s all-natural and Biodynamic Calendula Baby Care collection during our  bed time routine and I must say I just love the the entire line.

The Weleda Calendula Shampoo & Body Wash is super gentle on the eyes and dermatologically tested. It has a wonderful scent and I love that it soothes and protects his skin at the same time.

The Weleda Calendula Face Cream absorbs super quickly and keeps his skin moisturized and smooth all day long. I love that it prevents dryness and can be applied as often as needed.

I enjoyed applying the Weleda Calendula Oil and the Calendula Lotion after his bath. The oil was great to use during the massage and while his skin was still damp to really lock in protective moisture. I tried them both for my own skin as well and I love how soft my skin was after. Really good for adults with sensitive skin as well.

If you are a new parent or you are expecting and want to start a baby massage routine with your little one I recommend you watch the video above and consider Weleda’s products. They are safe and natural and they keep baby’s skin soft and moisturized.  If you already have a routine but you are using other products that are perhaps not natural I suggest you take a look at the ingredients and make the switch to all natural products!

    I have never tried massaging my baby before bed, but yes, she DOES have a bedtime routine. I lay her on her back, put her “paboy” (a little stuffed animal) in her arms, cover her in her favorite blanket with a corner pointing up next to her face, brush her hair out of her eyes, and say “go sleeps little girl”. And she always does! 🙂

    No full body massage. I have 3 little ones, and we do the bed time stuff all at the same time, starting with a bath and then finishing with cuddle time in my bed watching some treehouse tv or a dvd. if they are calm enough we will do story time, but it normally takes me a few hours to settle them down as they feed off one another since they are all very close in age (i had my youngest 3 in less than 3 years so its “almost” like having triplets in a way)
