Massaging your baby at 0 - 3 months
Massaging your newborn baby
Massage is a great way to help your newborn baby relax and develop a deep emotional bond between you – most babies love to be caressed!
There isn’t a recommended technique so just trust your instincts. Start by applying a little gentle pressure – your baby will let you know if they’re uncomfortable. They’ll often fall asleep during or straight after the massage, so it’s perfect before a nap or just after their bath.
Remember, there’s a chance that your baby may ingest some of the oil, so only use pure organic oils like sunflower or virgin olive oil. They’re safe, gentle on your baby’s skin and most importantly, they’re edible.
