Johnson & Johnson

When Ashley was an infant, she was a horrible sleeper (funny, Audrey slept fine as an infant, but is now a horrible sleeper, somewhere Ray and I really pissed off the sleeping Gods...I blame that volcanic rock I took from Hawaii). One of her teachers at daycare suggested we try infant massage to get her soothed prior to bed.

It may or may not of made her sleep better, I really don't know, but I liked that time spent with her in the evenings, right after a bath, making her smell good and keeping her skin soft. I do the same with Audrey, mainly because of her eczema, but still. She will hold up her leg for me and when I am done with it, she holds up her other leg. She loves it even as a two year old.

So when Johnson & Johnson asked me to share with you their new short videos about infant massage, I of course said yes.

Johnson & Johnson is working with new mom and Emmy award-winning actress Mariska Hargitay (I love her...) on four adorable cartoon shorts with leading animation studio, Animation Collective. The cartoons emphasize the importance of bonding with your baby and the benefits of a mother's loving touch (baby massage, etc.). Mariska, who is a new mom herself, stars as the voice of the baby in the Webisodes. The first cartoon, titled "Baby Massage Class" debuted on Wednesday and you can view it today here or below. Oh, and Mariska is the voice of the baby, it's cute.

So cute! I also did infant massage with my last 5 babies. (scary to say "last five" LOL Sounds ridiculous...haha) Anyway, it really did work wonder with them and like you, I just really enjoy the bonding time with them. (we still do it with the twins every evening before bed)

I never would have guessed that was Mariska Hargitay. The video was cute though.

Morgan LOVES to be massaged at night and does the same as Audrey. It's one of my favorite times with her.
