Connect with your baby and stimulate their senses with a gentle massage.


Did you know that at birth, your baby’s sense of touch is the most finely tuned of all their senses! That’s why, one of the best ways in which you can truly communicate with and bond with your baby in those early days is by massaging them. Know the feeling of utter relaxation after a good massage? Well, your baby feels the same way too. In fact, experts suggest that it plays a huge part in helping your baby grow and develop. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should massage your baby routinely:


1. It soothes and relaxes them
As a parent, soothing your wailing baby is a huge victory, right? But sometimes, no amount of rocking them or holding them and pacing up and down will work! Next time, try massaging your baby. A massage helps reduce the levels of cortisol, better known as the stress hormone, and relaxes your baby.

2. It can boost your child’s immunity system
Regular massages stimulate your child’s central nervous system and strengthen their ability to fight off germs.

3. It helps them sleep better
Massaging your baby relaxes their breathing and heart rate, getting them ready for a good night’s sleep.

4. It can help relieve aches and pains
Gassy babies are not happy babies. Massaging your baby around their belly can help reduce constipation and relieve symptoms of colic. It can also relieve stress in babies who are teething.

5. It strengthens the bond between parent and baby
Infant massage is a great way for both parents to truly connect with and bond with their little one. While massaging a baby, you learn to understand and respond to your baby’s cues, thus helping you find a means to communicate with them.

Learn a few different massage techniques before you begin.


If you’ve decided to start massaging your baby, here are some helpful tips and techniques that you can follow.


Massaging your baby for a few minutes every day is ideal, but if that’s not possible, try doing it a few times every week.


Rub Baby Massage Oil in the palms of your hands and start talking to your baby to get them engaged.


Start by holding their hands gently and lightly rubbing their palms with your fingers. Then, start massaging their body, beginning with the legs and slowly going upwards. Here’s a few of the many different massages you can try:
Leg Massage: Hold your baby’s leg with one hand and with the other hand, wrap your fingers around their leg and gently slide your hand in and up and down motion from thigh to ankle. Repeat it a few times and then turn your attention to the other leg. You can also lightly massage the soles of their feet with your fingers in a downward motion.

Belly Rub: Gently rub your baby’s tummy area around their naval in a circular motion. If your baby is very gassy, you can also follow this up by slowly bending their knees and bringing them up to their stomach, holding them there for a few seconds, bringing them back down and repeating the action. Once you do this a few times, gently rub their belly in a downwards motion.

Hand Massage: Using both hands, slowly roll your baby’s hand from below the shoulder working your way to their wrist.


Watch your baby for cues and respond accordingly. Improvise based on your baby’s responses.
