Weleda, a Moment with Your Baby {Giveaway}

I was recently invited to  Weleda workshop called “A Moment with Your Baby”, and indeed a moment it was. Meeting the fab women from Weleda and their Doula.  She showed us how to massage and we spoke about the benefits of Weleda and infant massage.

A Moment with Your Baby is referring to a quiet time with your precious love where mom or dad takes a timeout with baby and to soothe baby by gentle massage.

I’ve been massaging Master Charles since he was a new born, my clients were right when they said to me “What a lucky baby to have you as a mom because of your hands”…huge compliment for me and I know Master Charles appreciates because at 2 1/2 years he still gets a massage and now ASKS for it. He flips onto his tummy and says to me “Massage my back mommy” so naturally I do and then he says “Feels good mommy”.  My life before baby was Aromatherapist and Esthetician in case your wondering what clients I have that would say that 😉

So when Weleda invited me I said “Yes!” right away.  

 Why?
I love Weleda products, it was the first line I used on Charlie and the scent takes me back to his newborn days.  The power of smell is something else as it triggers emotions and feelings buried deep in the back of your olfactory system.

Why I chose Weleda?

When Calendula comes to mind I think of liquid gold..well next to breast milk. 
Calendula Baby Care is made with pure plant oils and extracts, natural ingredients that don’t clog pores so baby’s skin can breathe. Read a review I did last year, click here
Another fabulous product for massage from Weleda is their Tummy Oil, read more here….

Benefits of Baby Massage
Massage isn’t it just for babies, once you smell the sweet, gentle aroma  of Weleda’s Calendula Baby Care it will soothe your senses after a long day of nursing and changing diapers and hopefully sleeping when baby is.
Hugs and loving hands go a long way, we all know the power if touch.  Be in a good mood and calm mind when you are about to massage baby too.
Baby massage contains a myriad of health benefits, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and can ease colic and indigestion.  Who doesn’t love a gentle touch from a loved one?
From Weleda and Everything Mom and Baby

I am going to give it to one lucky follower of Everything Mom and Baby.

    To unwind, Ruby and I like to sit in a rocking chair and listen to music, lights low and read some stories..

    My favourite tip from the Weleda site was the one about the teething gel on the angel brush! What a great idea, I will use that for my next one due in November:)

    All my son and I need to rewind is a dimly lit room, a rocking chair, and some nursing time. Breastfeeding is more than just food, even for a 13 month old! 🙂

  4. Librarianess | 18th Apr 11

    My favourite tip is the one you gave about the teething gel and teether — I never thought about the dual purpose (soothing gums and cleaning teeth) before!

    I breastfeed my daughter, and we snuggle up to take naps. This is the best way that we unwind, although we have tried massage (which is awesome) and going outside to the swingset.

    I like to read to my kids at night after a bath. Then I nurse the baby in the almost dark of his room and put him to bed and then snuggle up to my 3 yr old. 🙂

    My favorite tip was eating quinoa to increase my milk supply, my son was 2mnth premature so while he was in nicu I relied on pumping to give him his milk. He is now out but my milk supply is going down.. a nurse told me to drink one beer every other day cuz the yeast will increase my milk supply. I dnt like beer or the idea of drinking alcohol while he relies on me for food so thanks 4 the tip, ill def try this one!!

    How do we unwind?

    Usually I pop in a fun family friendly video, pour her some juice, make myself some tea, and we veg out!
    Or we lay in bed, me with magazines and her with pop-up books, enjoying the big blankets and quiet time!

    The most soothing thing for both my girls was nursing and the comfort of bonding. I look forward to nursing our little one due this summer, i know it will bring much needed stress relief:)

    Unwinding for us starts with giving my son a bath, then a massage before getting him into his pj’s. We end it all off with a story (Goodnight Moon) in the glider in his room. The perfect way to end a day and start a wonderful path to dreamland!

  20. J. Reid | 20th Apr 11

    My favorite tip was…I put my Weleda Children’s Tooth Gel on the Born Free Silicone Teething Ring and Gum Brush. While Charlie is chewing on it, he is brushing his own teeth and helping me out!

    Great idea! Will def be trying this one out!!

    to unwind my little guys, we usually all cuddle up in bed and sing lullabies as a family:)

    i like your tip about adding calendula to wipes. i make my own wipe ‘solution’ and use washcloths, so I’ll be sure to add some to it next time…thanks!

    I like your tip to use Weleda’s Baby Calendula Oil on a diaper wipe. It sounds like it would be extra soothing on irritated skin. Thanks for sharing!

    I like the tip for eczema/dry skin:
    Smooth lotion on your baby’s skin while it is still slightly damp from the bath.
