Baby Massage

Massage has many benefits for newborns, including help with calming, improving sleep patterns and enhancing the baby’s growth and development. Massage also helps calm a newborn after routine hospital procedures (such as weighing), which can be stressful. The nursing staff incorporates the power of touch into caring for newborns by showing families how to massage and provide skin-to- skin contact. This makes babies feel warm and secure.
