We often hear moms, parenting coaches, doulas, doctors speaking about skin to skin with babies in the first few months of their life, that is why we recommend starting baby massage as early as possible. The massage we help aid in that skin to skin interaction and it will develop a deeper sense of closeness for both parents

As your baby gets a bit bigger and stronger, the baby massage can be beneficial for bub to reach his/her developmental milestones like holding their head up, rolling over, crawling, and then walking. It stimulates the muscles and helps them become stronger. It will also help your baby’s distress and loosen their joints or muscles.

Our final reason why you should be doing infant massage is that it can help relieve your baby of any aches and pains. It is especially beneficial for babies who are colic, have teething issues and even constipation.

On a final note, a massage after a bath will also relax you and your baby and will aid in giving you both a good night’s rest. Book your baby infant massage today and reap the benefits of learning our techniques.
