By this time, baby is more mobile and any activity that requires him to stay still may not be appealing to him. “Instead of forcing him down, transform your massage activity from a quiet bonding time into fun and active play,” advises Kath Calagui, a certified instant massage instructor. Don’t expect to strictly finish routines on each body area; instead, concentrate on visible areas on different sessions. Integrate games like peek-a-boo, sing soft and gentle tunes, or make noisy sounds to add some entertainment.
