Rubbing in body lotion
When you rub your child in with body lotion it helps him to be more aware of his body. Rub or massage your child quite firmly. Do this only if he enjoys it. You can start with only his back or his arms. If necessary you can even let him do this himself. Choose a body lotion or massage oil with a pleasant smell for your child. If possibly let him choose one himself.
