Review – A new mums experience of baby massage, and why it helped her confidence as a mother

As a new mummy, one of my biggest worries was that I was doing something wrong with my baby; especially if I was doing something differently to Joe Bloggs next door.

 Now, well, now I know tired!! I have 2 children who both took just over a year before they slept through the night! And still now on average I am up at least once a night and they are 3 ½ and 2! So, we are seasoned pros at the who is more tired game.
