Nurturing Touch and Infant Massage

New parents can build a stronger bond with their new infant by learning Nurturing Touch and Infant Massage. The benefits include the ability to tune-in to your baby’s cues and to respond effectively. This can improve sleep for the child, and reduce colic, gas and teething pains. Parents learn calming strategies to lower stress for everyone in the family. This service is free and can take place in your own home. For more information, call Easter Seals at 707-263-3949.

Is your child developing on time?
In the first 5 years of a child’s life, children develop skills, or “milestones” at their own pace.

To see if your child’s development is on schedule complete an Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3 tm) a free screening tool available through Easter Seals. ASQ-3 results will help you see if your child’s development is on time and alert you to concerns you can talk over with your health provider.
