Yes I was crying and softly weeping while watching baby massage videos over the internet. Cooing babies with mommies gently rubbing their babies head and bellies made me choke up and lose it. You can’t do any sort of massage with DW anymore. He’s a big ball of kinetic energy with a healthy sprinkling of frenzy thrown in. I can’t even put lotion on him without pleading with him to stay still. Once I asked him to come close to me so that I could apply powder. He did but we were nose to nose (he was standing on our bed) and he wouldn’t move and I had to put the lotion with us in that position. He’s funny, don’t get me wrong and he fills my daily quota of laughs but seeing those gentle babies on the video — Aaargh! I really miss those days when DW was just a big lump of fat and cuteness in his crib but we have new one coming. This excited me but at the same time made me so weepy so I just cried right in my workstation. Ayos 😛 Very profeysyonal 😛
Here’s one of the videos that made me go awwww:
I started sniveling when the baby started sneezing. And yes that video is from Tiddley Pom Baby Spa. A baby spa! How adorable!! You can view the rest of the infant massage series here.
The infant massage video goes hand in hand with Nivea Baby’s newest campaign, which I am a part of. I’ll be sharing with you articles from Nivea Baby on how best to take care of your kid’s sensitive skin and how to best bond with your babe. The first article that I’m sharing with you is all about Touch.
Touch is the best expression of your love for your baby. Your touch does not only give a sense of security, it also has a key role in ensuring your baby’s emotional and social development. Experts say that touch receptors, which are located all over the body, are directly connected to the brain, which explains why your baby’s sense of touch is more sensitive than any of his other senses. With this, it is advisable that you keep your baby’s sense of touch – his skin – always protected.
As touch plays a significant role in your baby’s overall development, make only the mildest choice for his skincare. Give him the best start in life with the mildest protection from NIVEA BABY.
Let’s celebrate this new and exciting journey together, mommies. Take the 1st Step to your baby’s mildest protection today with NIVEA BABY with over 100 years of baby skincare expertise. Because nobody understands baby’s skin better.

I believe in touch and cuddles and hugging. The three of us do a lot of those as often as we can. I love hugging, surprise kisses and unexpected “i love yous” from the little boy. BDW is the big affectionate huggy bear in the family and him and DW have a lot of harutan on a daily basis. Before it was just gentle touches for the fragile little DW but now it’s wrestling which I can’t be a part of for obvious reasons.
I’m excited to be a part of Nivea Baby’s campaign and with that comes a lot of giveaways! To be among the first to know what’s up, just enter your email address here and you will be one of the first to know if a new post is up. You can also keep in touch via FB, rss feed or twitter.
