This workshop was held on 22 May, but I only managed to write about it today. I received the email regarding the workshop from Baby Center and immediately register for it, as the registration fee is only MYR 20 per couple. (murah terus register!) The event was held at Evergreen Laurel Hotel at Gurney Drive, on Sunday, 22 May 2011, in collaboration with KPJ Healthcare Berhad.
Sunday morning, otw to Penang.
This workshop basically to teach the parents on the importance of infant massage and the technique of doing so. Up until I joined the workshop, I never knew the important of infant massage to the baby growth.
"The loving connection between mother and child is truly magical. It's a bond that can be enhanced through the sense of touch. That's something your baby will thrive on.
Studies have found that infant massage
- can enhance your little one's immune system
- increases a baby's bone mass by 15%.*
- increases weight gain by 47%.*
- aids with motor skill development when you massage arms and legs.
- helps with emotional growth - helping your baby feel more secure, confident and independent.
- will help calm your baby down, which in turn can improve sleep patterns and aid digestion.

For the second session, we have the demo massage from the trainer. Each of us were divided into 5 groups and we learnt the details on how to massage the baby, how to handle them during massage and those who came with babies can immediately try it on the spot.
The crowd of the day.

Thanks Johnson's Baby for the workshop. I've grown up with Baby Johnson's toiletries-shampoo, milkbath, lotion, cream, baby oil, cologne, etc. Even sampai form 4 pon saya still pakai baby cream (slalu org letak kat bontot baby) tapi I letak dekat muka for daily usage cum moisturizer and alhamdullillah, my skin complexion turns to be good. Dah masuk form 5 baru betul-betul guna skin regime seperti Hazeline. =)
