Baby massage is a lovely way to enjoy time with your baby and it can also help you bond with them.
Before babies are able to understand language, we often communicate and comfort them through touch. If a baby cries, for example, parents will hold, cuddle or stroke them. Baby massage is part of this natural impulse.
Parents use light touch and rhythmic strokes to gentle massage their baby’s body. It is a great way for parents to connect with their baby using power of positive touch. It increases bonding and helps babies to feel calm, connected and secure, as well as increases parents sense of well-being.
Learning the massage techniques gives parents confidence in handling their baby and helps them to respond to their baby’s cues and needs, which enables better communication and positive interactions.
