Infant massage is a wonderful way for parents to connect with their babies, improve their physical and emotional well-being, and create a deeper bond. Using a small amount of baby massage oil or lotion to your baby's skin, starting by gently stroking your baby's body, using long, flowing movements that follow the direction of their muscles. This form of touch therapy is known to relieve discomfort, encourage relaxation, and improve overall health. It can also be beneficial for common infant ailments such as colic, constipation, and respiratory issues(sinus congestion, chest congestion, etc.). Moreover, regular infant massage increases a baby's levels of serotonin and melatonin, those two hormones are responsible for promoting feelings of calm and happiness, leading to improved sleep, better overall mood and appetite, and a greater sense of security and attachment.
