Calming a Baby – Shantala Massage

Having your newborn in your arms for the first time can turn out quite challenging, specially when they start crying and you have no clue why!

There’s many potential solutions to calm a baby, and I’m preparing a funny chart around this theme to share with you, but today I’ll write about the Shantala Massage.

– you
– the baby
– a comfortable and warm place to sit
– an essential oil (like Johnson’s Baby, for example)
