The benefits of baby massage

Giving your little one a gentle baby massage in the evening as part of an established bedtime routine can help put your baby in a calm, relaxed state and be ready for bed. Many parents become frustrated when the evening comes and their babies are alert, active and showing no signs of sleepiness. Although this is normal, both you and your baby need an established bedtime routine in order to get the appropriate hours of sleep each night.

Benefits of giving your baby a massage include:

•  Helping your baby stay in a relaxed state and not get upset. For parents of fussy babies, Mommy’s Bliss Sweet Slumber massage cream can work wonders. For more information about this product and for tips on establishing a bedtime routine, please watch this video.

•  Baby massages may help your baby cry less. For parents of babies who have been diagnosed with colic or whose babies experience discomfort from gas or teething, try giving your baby a massage in addition to administering any medications your pediatrician has prescribed.

•  Some studies have shown that a baby massage may help your baby sleep better. Gently massaging the body can put your baby into a calm, relaxed state that induces sleep and helps them sleep through the night.

Mommy’s Bliss has a range of Sweet Slumber products designed to help your baby fall asleep easily and our massage cream is the perfect accompaniment to a bedtime massage.
