· If your baby lets you, gently stretch out both the arms to the sides, spreading hands and fingers. Then gently squeeze out along the arms and, with light and circular thumb movements massage the palms and wrist before you finish your movements, do not forget to stretch out each finger with a light pull.
Now move on to legs and feet, but work out only on and leg at a time. Supporting baby’s leg with both your hands, gently squeeze and release the fleshy part of his thigh. Thereafter, support the leg with one hand and stroke the leg, from knee to the thigh and back down again.
