Massaging the baby is one of the nicest way of expressing your love to your baby. It gives me immense pleasure when I massage my baby.
Baby massage is like any other massage but we have to keep in mind that we are dealing with very tiny humans 🙂 and hence the massage should be gentle, rhythmic motion with your hands on your baby’s body.
Depending on the situation, I decide whether I would be using oil or moisturiser for massage. I have use the following oils for my daughter’s massage, at times mixing 2-3 together as well.
The massage time is bonding time with my baby and I love talking to her at this time.
Benefits of Baby Massage
- The first and foremost reason I love massaging my baby is that I have observed that after massage she tends to sleep better.
- She is more cranky and fussy the days I don’t massage her
- After nice massage and a warm water bath she is very relaxed.
- The touch therapy helps my baby develop mentally, socially and physically. During the massage I talk to her and tell her a few stories, it will help her
