  Massaging Your Baby

Posted by: Alyson @ 11:38 am

In this weeks blog Alyson will teach you all the benefits of massaging your newborn baby.Massages are one of life’s pleasures that’s simple and free. Many studies show that babies grow much better when they get touched and massaged. The skin to skin contact during the message helps mom and baby connect, even without saying anything. Massaging is a great way to bond with your baby. Many moms ask “Why should I massage my baby? What are the benefits?’ Here are just a few reasons.

  • To Boost Immunity
    A recent study showed that infants around ten weeks of age that had daily massages, had fewer colds and less diarrhea. Touching has the power to enhance the secretion of digestive hormones which eases the digestive process.
  • Relieves Stress
    Many believe that one cause of colic is sensory overload. A baby that is stressed will cry often. Massaging your infant can reduce stress hormone levels significantly.
  • Helps Breathing
    When infants are born, many times they have irregular breathing patterns. Massages helps regulate it because the skin is the largest organ of the body, and it’s rich in nerve endings.
  • Helps Build The Brain
    Studies show that babies who were massaged have enhanced neurological development. The brain grows the fastest in the first year, so now would be a good time to start rubbing.
  • Stimulates Growth Hormones
    Many pediatricians will tell you that babies thrive much better when touched. Thriving means growing physically, emotionally, and intellectually. A study done showed that premature babies that received three 15 massages per day for 5 days showed a 53% greater daily weight gain than babies who were not massaged.
