Having spent many years looking after babies and toddlers during my career as a child care educator and more recently as a baby massage instructor, I’m not surprisingly very much used to interpreting their often non-verbal communication.
Many parents question me when I talk about this, saying such things as, “communicating with baby is challenging when we are unable to understand each other?”. This happens a lot when I’m teaching parents how to massage their baby using the baby massage techniques.
One of the important aspects of baby massages is that you always ask your baby’s permission before getting started, and many parents have no idea how to do this or interpret their baby’s body language or non verbal communication. Just because they cannot communicate with you in words doesn’t mean there is no avenue of communication.
So in this episode, I’m going to talk about ways to help you communicate with your baby and understand their non-verbal communication and cues.
And much more!
