Why Baby Massage?

Baby massage can be relaxing for mum and baby. Yes, babies get stressed too being in new environments and they also pick up on your stress. Taking time out together for a massage teaches baby how to relax, and you will relax too.

Massage has lots of physical benefits and for babies can play a vital role in circulation, digestion and growth. Using simple techniques you can ease the symptoms of colds, colic and teething. Massage can help babies who are premature and those with disabilities too, improving muscle tone and stimulating growth hormones.

Many studies have found that massage plays a large role in promoting growth and healthy development in infants.  Some of the other benefits are:

For Parent

  • helps with the bonding process
  • enjoying the close contact with their baby
  • builds confidence in handling their baby
  • helps build parents' and baby's self-esteem
  • helps you learn about your baby (their needs and desires)
  • contented baby
  • feels good and is fun

For Baby

  • helps with the bonding process
  • helps with sleep
  • aids digestion
  • stimulates all the systems with the body
  • physical workout
  • contented baby
  • feels nice
  • boosts immune system
  • sensory stimulation
  • improves skin condition
  • improves blood circulation
  • helps digestion
  • balances respiration
  • help waste elimination
  • stimulates production of oxytocin

(Oxytocin is a hormone which can be produced by both male and female persons during massage. It is useful as a pain reliever and has a calming effect on the person.)

* Bonding is: love, security, connection, acceptance, peace, caring, happiness, interaction, empathy, unity, warmth, joy, communication and familiarity.

Bonding may be experienced through eye contact, touch, smell, taste and listening

"Bonding is a unique relationship between two people. It is specific and endures through time."

Baby Massage and Bonding

Bonding with your baby can take time and doesn't always happen easily. The bonding experience can be encouraged through touch, through spending quality time together and through eye-to-eye contact with you baby. Baby massage can play a vital role in this process particulalrly if you've struggled due to postnatal depression, an early baby or medical problems. It's a great thing for dad to learn too, especially if mum is breast feeding and he feels left out.
