Touch is the most powerful of all interactions between a parent and child. Your baby will sense what you are feeling by the way they are touched.
How do I massage my baby?
Your baby can sense what you’re feeling by the way they are touched, so only massage baby if you’re feeling calm and relaxed. Start with a small amount of oil and place your hands gently on baby’s tummy. Massage from the neck and work down through the body using firm, gentle, smooth and rhythmic strokes, glide over the skin, maintaining contact at all times. Watch your baby’s reaction and stop when you sense they’ve had enough.
