Infant Massage Benefits

You love a good massage yourself, but have you ever heard of infant massage? This is an ancient practice in many cultures. Massage is one of the first and best ways you can provide stimuli and a demonstration of love to your newborn. Here are the basics of infant massage benefits and how you can get started with some help from Norabloom.

Benefits of Infant Massage

Bonding – Gentle touch is one of the best ways to bond with your infant. The act of massaging is an opportunity for you and your baby to engage and tune into each other. Physical expressions of love are a beautiful way to strengthen your blossoming relationship.

Relaxation – There’s nothing more relaxing than a massage! Both you and your baby will enjoy this time to be with each other and let the little tensions of the day go with gentle, soothing touch. For fussy babies, massage can also help decrease irritability and crying—a win for mom and dad as well.

Stimulation – Infant massage encourages muscle development and tone. It also stimulates both left and right brain functions, promoting baby’s cognitive and emotional development.

Regulation – Gas, colic, and tummy discomfort are common problems for many babies. One of the benefits of infant massage is that it helps regulate baby’s digestive and respiratory system, helping their tiny body to function smoothly.
