Baby Massage

Before leaving France, a friend of mine, who is in the process of becoming certified to teach baby massage, taught me some moves! The “squeeze and twist”, “swedish milking”, the “water wheel”, and it all sounded pretty nice. Apparently, infant massage is great for encouraging bonding, and has a lot of other benefits as well such as improving sleep patterns, relieving colic, gas, and constipation, and promoting the release of calming hormones. I have also heard that it is best to start baby massage early on in baby’s life. So I’m curious:

Have any of you tried baby massage? When did you start? Did you notice any benefits? Any drawbacks? Would you do it again?
