I've never actually taken Cody to massage classes, but I have tried it when he was very fussy or not feeling well. I can see what all the hub-bub is about -- I think it's a great idea. Here's an article that I ran on the subject a while back -- hopefully it has some useful information for you!

We never took Haley anywhere for massage but read some about it and tried at home. I think it is a great idea too.

I actually took Caroline to baby massage and we enjoyed it. Every child reacts differently towards the massage, some really liked it and some don't. So you should just try whether Jaydean is a "massage-type" and for this purpose you do not necessarily have to attend a class. In general, massage is very good for your baby, because especially newborns need to be touched. There are different oils you can use for the massage, for example if your baby has stomach ache (which most of them have the first 6-8 weeks) you can use a certain oil and a certain massage technique around the belly button to ease the pain. Furthermore, the massage ritual may help your child to get to sleep in the evening. Baby massage is very nice and one more expression of tenderness for you baby.

I heard that baby massage helps the baby relax. I bet the classes are expensive tho.

Christian loves it. We can do it to his back and it really calms him down. But if he has a stomach ache the massage won't help him because he won't let me touch it...I've tried before.

I would never take him and have it done somewhere though. And I don't think I am up for putting massage oil on him at this age yet.

I've never taken Jenna to be massaged but the doctor said its great for collicky babies. Jenna likes it when I massage her shoulders and will actually sit still for it. I know we like so I'm sure they must love it too.

I give Alexis massages and she just sits there and relaxs. I think she really enjoys it. It helps calm her down a little. It can put her to sleep.
