Usually we start massage for baby from the first month and continue for at least two years or more if baby loves it .
I started massage for her from first month and keep learning ways how this massage session would be happy one for both mommy and baby, for initial days we kept one massage lady for her but I was really unhappy the way she use to massage, all time my little girl was crying with her and I decided to do massage for her.
I keep on learning through YouTube videos, as I mentioned I was not happy the way massage lady was giving her Massage, so I decide to learn more on this and know how to give massage that is soothing for baby.
So let us first see what are the benefits of massage
🍀Helps to soothe baby and relax for good sleep.
🍀Improve weight gain.
🍀Aids digestion- common problems like constipation and gas, circular motion tummy massage and some simple exercise helps in releasing gas.
🍀Helps in improving blood circulation.
🍀A happy massage session improves mommy baby bonding.
🍀Toddlers are full time in active mode so giving some leg massage before sleep helps in good sleep too.
How to make this session a happy one
🍀 Singing or talking to baby helps a lot as they love to hear you and this will be a great bonding way for you too.
🍀A mother touch is the best when it comes to sooth a baby, so they would love to get massage with you.
🍀Keep some small toys or teether so that baby can play with them and enjoy this session.
🍀Choosing right time for massage is really important, giving massage in morning and before sleep time really works for soothing baby and proper sleep.
