Frequently Asked Questions
Petit Papillon is French for Little Butterfly & just like a little butterfly your babies are delicate. We care for them and nuture them so that as they grow they will fly.
Petit papillon offers Baby Massage and Baby yoga classes. This is a wonderful experience for both parent/carer and baby.
The well known anthropologist Dr Ashley Montagu explains that, "Human beings cannot survive without touch as it is a basic behavioural need". Without touch, the human infant will surely die. With healthy touch, the human infant not only survives, but thrives!
Baby massage not only encourages and aids the bonding process between baby and parent, but it also has countless other benefits for everyone involved.

Whilst it is possible to learn the principles of baby massage from books or dvds, there really is no substitute for learning from an experienced instructor.
In all Petit Papillon classes, a qualified instructor will guide you through all of the basics of baby massage/baby yoga in a clear and relaxed fashion, ensuring that you use the right strokes with the right amount of pressure, watching you and your baby for the right cues and encouraging you both through this gentle learning experience in a manner that is informal and relaxing, yet is informed and knowledgeable.
