Baby massage stimulates development, reduces stress, reduces intestinal cramps, promotes bowel movements, gives rest, promotes blood circulation to the skin, improves sleeping and reduces crying.
In addition, baby massage is a very nice way to better understand each other’s body language
Start with baby massage
When your baby is 4 weeks old, it is safe to start baby massage. Earlier you can give partial massage. Mirjam will explain this to you exactly. Baby massage is especially recommended for children between the second and seventh month of life. Children older than 7 months are often mobile and want to go their own way.
Preferably massage your baby with 100% natural baby oil to prevent reactions.
Mirjam advises you on this.
When baby massage?
You can do baby massage at any time of the day. But it is important that both of you are ready. So not if you are in a hurry or if your baby is hungry or unwell, (sick or just vaccinated)
For children who are very restless or have sleeping problems, a relaxing massage before going to sleep can help. Tensions in the body are removed and it makes falling asleep easier.
