How Idibidi Kids helped Ryder, 8 weeks old, and his parents

From the Powell family; son Ryder, 8 weeks old, specifically wanted to learn about the colic massage routine to help with colic and wind:

The Powell's were given an Idibidi Kids gift certificate by a good friend at work.

We loved the convenience of Natalie coming to our home at a pre-arranged time that suited both parties. We had plenty of time to get through everything and we felt relaxed and able to enjoy the session. Our baby was also quite settled being in his own environment. We followed the colic massage routine for the 2 weeks recommended and found it did ease colic symptoms. Our baby also enjoyed the massage; now that his colic seems to have subsided, we still massage him as part of play (we do it every night before bed which he loves and calms him down beautifully!). We feel it has helped with bonding as our baby enjoys it and smiles/laughs while being massaged. It is incredibly rewarding to be able to touch and play with our baby and know that he loves it! The service that Idibidi Kids provided was outstanding and we would thoroughly recommend I.K. to others who have had a baby. Thank you Natalie for teaching us an invaluable skill that brings so much love to our little family! We appreciate all your help and contact.
