Massaging newborn babies is essential for babies and their parents. It helps build a strong bond between the child and the parent. Babies' sense of touch is the most developed during infancy. When they cannot communicate through words, a parent's gentle touch helps them feel nurtured and protected. Establishing a routine to massage newborns can help them relax and also strengthen their muscles. It is a magical and therapeutic tool that can put the baby into an undisturbed, deep sleep.
The best time to massage a newborn depends on the baby's sleep cycle and feeding patterns. Preparing the baby for the massage is just as important - set a schedule for the massage at a fixed time every day so that the baby knows to expect it and cooperates. If your baby is engrossed in games, or irritated by touch, do not disturb him/her. Massages can help when a baby experiences trouble sleeping or is in a cranky, grumpy mood.
Since your toddler can’t yet speak, it is essential to understand his/her body language and unspoken signs. Make sure the massage techniques are accurate.
Usage of Oils to Massage Your Newborn:
Using massage oils heightens and amplifies the effects of a massage and also helps your baby sleep better. However, while using massage oils, choose an edible, unscented one, preferably one that's homemade or organic. Massages can be a great time for babies to relax after a day filled with fun and activity. It is a moment for them to stop, breathe, and bond. It is just as vital for them as it is for adults.
