Why Massage Your Baby?

Infant massage is an ancient art that connects you deeply with your baby, and it helps you to understand your baby's particular nonverbal language and respond with lots of love and respect. The gentle art of infant massage has been part of baby caregiving traditions passed from parent to child for generations.

Mothers all over the world know that their babies need to be held, carried, rocked and touched. And this is done in different ways in various cultures. Researches demonstrate that societies, where infants are held, massaged, rocked, breastfeed and carried by adults, are less aggressive and violent and more corporative and compassionate. Researches can help us understand why these traditional practices are so important.

We at Baby Sutra promotes the benefits of infant massage via our infant massage sessions for babies, training mothers how to massage their babies and training instructors.

Not only babies but parents are also benefited from Infant massage. Infant massage helps parents feel secure in their ability to do something positive for their babies and get a positive response from this - a squealing bit of newborn humanity suddenly and urgently put in their charge.

Loving skin contact and massage benefits mothers and fathers as well. Mothers who have meaningful skin contact during pregnancy and labor tend to have an easier labor and are more responsive to their infants. Fathers who make an effort to bond with their infants by giving the mother-loving massages, talking to the baby, feeling its movements, tend to be more attentive and accomplished fathers. By regularly massaging your baby, you set a cycle of healthy response that improves the mothering skills day by day and enhance your baby's wellbeing, disposition and the relationship among all there of you - Mother Father and the baby.
