Rocking Your Baby To Sleep Vs Baby Massage
Getting into a routine of rocking your baby to sleep – is this what you want to associate your child’s sleep with?
Or giving your infant a regular loving touch right from the start with Massage: stimulate the central nervous system, establish the routine of regular sleep, gain confidence, develop a positive emotional well being, a great way to bond and build trust with your new-born.
The first three years of a baby’s life is a critical period with unique features of early brain neurological development.
Baby Massage is wonderful for stimulating the physiological system, neuronal activation, makes strong neural pathways and supports growth in the baby’s brains. Massage can have an enormous impact.
Baby massage helps both the baby and the care-giver:
The baby enjoys a healthy touch, that can activate the brain and senses, improve sensory and body awareness.
Caregivers can have a time for communication with their baby and gain confidence in understanding and sensitively responding to their baby’s cues. Using a unique sequence of activities – including baby massage – you can provide a healthy brain architecture: particularly in relation to life-long mental well-being, empathy, emotional regulation, and cognitive skills. (Feldman, Rosenthal & Eidelman, 2014; National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, 2004; World Health Organisation, 2004).
The loving touch goes a long way helping your baby relax and sleep deeper.
The natural sensory stimulation of massage stimulates the nervous system and the nerves in the brain.
Consider associating your baby’s sleep with the healing power of Massage. As most mothers would recommend – do what your baby prefers and likes and what works best for you and your baby.
