Infant Massage

Infant sleepingInfant Massage is a gentle, rhythmic stroking of your baby’s body with your hands. The soothing strokes of your hands stimulate the production of the feel-good hormone oxytocin in both you and your baby. Oxytocin is the hormone that gives you that warm, loving feeling when you hold your baby close or breastfeed.

At birth, touch is the most developed of the five senses, and research suggests that infant massage has huge benefits for babies to grow and thrive. Infant Massage may help strengthen baby’s attachment to you, stay relaxed and not get upset, cry less, and sleep better. It can even help ease tummy troubles and teething pains, as well as boost muscle development.

There’s also a theory that touch and skin-to-skin contact helps stimulate your baby’s brain development.Some benefits for parents include helping moms with postpartum depression and helping dads create a bond with baby.
