Welcome to CDA Baby Solutions!

 

During the first three years of life, infants and toddlers experience significant milestones in their development. Sensitive periods, also known as “prime times” occur in this timeframe. During prime times, both positive and negative experiences have a greater chance of affecting the development of infants and toddlers in a serious and sustainable manner. Our talented infant and toddler specialized sleep consultants and infant massage instructors consider your family’s unique needs in developing a detailed and individualized plan. We will walk you through this journey step by step while discovering joy and happiness, and instilling confidence in you, as parents. Under the guidance of our principal consultant, Minnie Mossop (Master of Art in Infant and Early Childhood Development as well as Master of Education in Early Childhood Education) - an expert in infant and toddler development, we provide face to face and/or online services with different packages that are tailored to suit your unique needs. We would welcome the opportunity to work with you and your family.

WHAT TO BRING

  • A small blanket (babies usually pee or poop more during the massage since they are relaxed so if you want, you can bring a water proof mat).
  • A baby doll if you have one (soft body but plastic face, arms and legs are OK, similar size to your baby would be the best)

 

WHAT FAMILIES WHO ATTENDED THE INFANT MASSAGE CLASSES TALKED ABOUT..

 

We recently had 5 weekly sessions for infant massage with Minnie and it was great! I didn't know how important was to include a massage as part of a baby's routine. It offers so many benefits for babies and parents. Minnie is a great instructor, very patient showing the massage routines and very knowledgeable. She provided lots of tips and set up a great environment to enjoy the class. I highly recommend this class with Minnie.

It was a wonderful 4 weeks with Minnie. My husband and I learned different strokes and how to read our baby's cues. It provided a great opportunity to bond with Jason, and especially for my husband. Jason sleeps better now and seems to enjoy the massages, more and more. I must had that we loved Minnie's calm nature. She made us feel welcomed and relaxed. She is also very knowledgeable and professional but at the same time, very sweet and personable. Thank you, Minnie!
