What is Baby Massage?
Baby Massage is a gentle and rhythmical stroking of your baby using an oil or moisturiser to help with the gliding of the hands. The movements of the hands over the skin helps to stimulate the production of the feel-good loving feeling hormone experienced when holding the baby close or breastfeeding them.
How Does The Baby Massage Benefit My Baby?
There are a number of benefits for a baby to have a baby massage which can include:
- improved sleep
- improve digestion and ease constipation
- help your baby stay relaxed and not get upset
- reduce crying and fussing
- improve weight gain
- enhancing the bond between you and your baby
- improve circulation
- improve babies proprioception and recognition of their body
- help your babies mental, social and physical development
When can a baby massage start?
Baby massage is suitable from newborn to 9 months. Before 4 weeks old we advise baby massage at home as a class situation can be a bit overwhelming for some babies and difficulties arise when trying to get to class on time.
When is the best time for baby massage?
The best time is when your baby is in their calm-alert state. This is when they have been awake for a short period and have been fed and comfortable. In this state they will be responsive and content and gain the most from the experience.
