Format: Paperback
This simple book gives a visual and written account of a basic baby massage followed by 3 simple yoga moves for baby. My baby enjoys every moment of it, and I like the meditations on new life

Deeply moving and wonderfully inspirational book 23 Jan. 1999
By Jennifer Scott(kevin@turbonet.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a beautiful book! The photographs are so telling of the love existant between mother and child. Frederick Leboyer is gifted with words and descriptions come across as simple poetry rather than dry descriptions. Here is something I wish my mother had done to me as a child. A gift I will give myself and my child when the time comes. On a side note I didn't find the exclusion of fathers massaging as being a bad thing. This is the story of Shantala and her baby. The poetic reference to death is about the death of the soul without love. Whether you are a baby or an adult the results are the same.

Beautiful photos reveal loving method for bonding with baby 19 Mar. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Beautiful photographs set amidst poetry and simple instructions guide new parents in positioning and massaging their baby. The book conveys a sense of serenity that a parent may find through interacting with his or her child. It also discusses various oils and lotions that can be used for a smooth and soothing massage. One factor which did not allow for a 10 rating here is the lack of fathers giving infant massage. Also note that if someone wished to give this book as a gift, they should be aware that there is one poem which discusses the circle of life, including death, which can be very upsetting to some new parents. If this book has been revised by Leboyer, I would certainly look for the new; it is very difficult to find the original.

Beautiful book. I am married to an Indian man that says this is the way to go for when we have our baby. It is so beautiful to see. I cried reading it. I love that I got in hopes that we conceive our first baby soon.

Great baby massage guide - a-must for new parents 22 Sept. 2014
By Mouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A great book - absolutely outstanding. The best baby massage I've seen. The only thing better would be a DVD.

Good and responsive seller - would do business again.
