The Benefits Of Infant Massage

Studies show that stimulation and massage can play a significant role in promoting a baby’s growth and development. In ways scientists are just beginning to understand, these techniques can increase the “wiring” or connections between nerve cells, effectively increasing the number of neural pathways available for learning. Massage can also help digestion and sleep. Pre-term babies that are massaged gain weight faster and leave the hospital sooner than those stimulated in ways other than touch.

On a sensory level, your touch will express your love as well as increase baby’s comfort by relieving gas, aiding digestion and relaxing muscles.
