Baby massage has been proven to be beneficial to both the baby and to the parent(s). Some of these are listed below:
  • Massage stimulates
  • relaxes your baby
  • It can enhance the bonding process
  • Babies sleep better and soothe easier
  • Infants who are massaged regularly are more alert and sociable when awake
  • They tend to do more 'vocalizing' or 'baby chatting'
  • It enhances their positive feelings about their bodies
  • Massage helps with relief of colic and digestive problems
  • It may help relieve discomforts of teething, congestion and emotional stress
  • Eye contact is enhanced during this 'quiet' time of the day
  • It helps to build trust

A good time to massage your baby is after bathing or before bedtime. The room should be warm (about 25ºC approx).

One of the girls in my baby group had a friend studying this, as part of her finals she had to run a 4 session group and we were lucky enough to learn it for nothing.
All the girls were only around 3 to 4mths at the time, and most seemed to enjoy it.
I used it a few times on my bubs tummy for constipation, tummy pain. :flower:
we have one at sure start near us every week give you a book to follow and oil (as much as you need) gives you more confidence to attempt to do it when others can show you.

I have been giving Abi massages for about a month now she loves it.

Often the other 2 ask for one as well

Just takes alot longer on them
