How Baby Massage Can Benefit Your Baby
When you massage your baby you teach them they are loved
Baby massage has been shared by many cultures passing down the traditions through generations. But why is is so popular?
Its not hard to see, through the many pictures I have shared over the years, just how much the mums and babies love this special time together.
Baby massage creates a moment of stillness, a moment of connection and love.
This is huge inside our busy lives and world. It teaches us and our babies that it is ok to slow down, to connect, to attune and to fall in love so deeply with one another.
Touch is your babies language. Before they understand your words, they understand touch, how it makes them feel, the emotional regulation it provides, and this builds the very foundations to attachment and emotional intelligence.
When you touch your babies in a loving and gentle way you teach them that they are loved. This builds secure and lifelong attachments.
When your babies emotional needs have been met, it gives room for their physical growth to develop.
