Relaxation – When you massage your baby, both of your bodies produce lovely “feel good” hormones which can help you both to relax. A more relaxed baby is likely to feed and sleep better.
Development – Baby massage can help to mature the nervous system and strengthen bones and joints. It stimulates and supports your baby’s physical, emotional and social development.
