That's why a massage is so good for your baby!
With a baby massage you can spoil your child wonderfully. In addition, you strengthen his or her health, physical and emotional development and your bond.
Why should I massage my baby?
- Baby massage has a calming effect and gives a feeling of security. Especially children who have difficulties falling asleep can benefit from a massage. The gentle rhythmic movements will also help you to find peace.
- Baby massage strengthens the parent-child bond. A two-way communication develops through the massage. The baby notices that its signals are perceived and answered. It learns the first forms of its self-efficacy.
- Baby massage can help with tummy aches, colic and regulation problems. Specific massage strokes stimulate digestion, have a deflating effect, relax the belly and thus alleviate the discomfort. The stress-reducing effect of massage can help your baby to calm down.
When and how often should I massage my baby?
- Baby massage is about spending a relaxing time together. Therefore, you should not be stressed by any schedule.
- Take a break of 45-60 minutes after breastfeeding or a meal before you start the massage. Starting immediately after drinking or eating could lead to vomiting.
- You can massage your baby as often as you like. You can establish baby massage as a daily ritual. Either as a morning routine to start the day together and relaxed or as an evening routine to end the day together and relaxed.
