At Baby Matters, we believe in the importance of touch and bonding with your baby and with so much evidence now supporting the benefits of massage we think it’s an important skill to learn.
For babies, a massage is a wonderful sensory experience. It stimulates your baby’s skin and body, increases oxytocin (your baby’s happy hormone), helps increase the efficiency of your baby’s respiratory and gastrointestinal functions (particularly relevant for babies prone to colic).
Baby massage is also a gentle intimate way to bond with your baby. Helping your baby relax, stretch out, relieve any body stresses and little areas of discomfort. What could be better than for you to see how positively you can affect your baby’s wellbeing.
By using practical baby massage techniques I can teach you how to understand your babies’ moods, needs, desires and expressions.
