Research shows that with regular massage, touch babies cry less and sleep better.
Learn how to give your baby a delightful and healthy massage.
The basic needs of a newborn baby are to get plenty of breastmilk, to feel comfortable by wearing clothes that suit the temperature, to get the nappy changed when needed, and also to receive lots of loving, healing touch.
Your baby does not need expensive toys, clothes or accessories; what babies need to thrive is to be loved, cuddled, held, and stroked. That is why the time immediately after the birth, when a baby is lying on the mother’s chest, is known as the “golden hour.”
Massage and gentle skin-to-skin stroking release oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone,” and endorphins, which reduce perceptions of pain and may produce a feeling of euphoria. When babies receive massage, they feel happy, calm and loved.
