Baby Massage

Hanz’s Note : This is schedulled post.
Am away for 2 days in a row for outstation.
Will miss chit-chat & chat-hop to others.

Baby massage isn’t just about learning strokes; it’s about learning a language that builds a relationship of trust and togetherness between parent and child.

The benefits of baby massage for your child:

  • Smoothes transition from womb to the world
  • Develops baby’s first language touch
  • Teaches positive loving touch
  • Develops a feeling of being loved, respected and secure
  • Develops body, mind, awareness and coordination
  • Can help to reduce the discomfort of colic, wind and constipation
  • Helps to regulate and strengthen baby’s digestive and respiratory systems and stimulate circulatory and nervous systems
  • Promotes relaxation
  • Can help to reduce fussiness and improve quality of sleep
  • Improves skin condition

The benefits of infant massage for parents :

  • Helps parents to understand baby’s non-verbal communication
  • Enhances parents confidence and competence in dealing with baby
  • Can help with postnatal depression
  • Both parents and baby relax together
  • Promotes lactation in breastfeeding mums (through stimulation of hormones)
  • Promotes nurturing instinct (through stimulation of hormone oxytocin)

Hanz’s Share: Me did’nt massage my boys, but rub backside during nursing and sleeptime.During confinement till my boys about 4 months, rub both their legs to avoid wind especially behind the knees and feet.It helps rather you rub the tummy itself.
