Due to the size and requirements of the baby or child, a baby massage takes less time than a full body massage of an adult, and is usually just added before or after other every-day baby routines.

In some places baby massage tuition is offered to new Mums, or Mums and Dads, or baby's carers, to encourage this gentle beneficial activity.
