Baby massage is pleasant, soothing and a great way to interact with your child.


Choose a time when you and your child are relaxed and calm. The massage is recommended half an hour after the baby has eaten.
Make sure the room temperature is 25 degrees Celsius. Undress it completely, and if the weather is cold or humid it covers areas of the baby's body that are not massaged.
Place the child on a soft surface so that he feels comfortable and safe. Keep some small pillows handy.
It is a good idea to apply a little cream on your hands to be soft and warm.
Massage is usually done from the head to the toes.

You will massage your head, face, shoulders, arms, chest, stomach and feet with soft, soft touches.
While massaging your child look at him tenderly. In this way, you will stimulate all your senses and establish a much more intense visual and tactile communication. Feel free to talk to them and not inhibit you.
Remember that your touches must be tender so do not make mechanical movements. Try to be flexible and not keep a rigid routine.
If your baby wants to change position, leave it. Do not force him to stay in a certain position, you can return to those areas later.


How hard you press:
Close your eyes and press on your eyelids. The pressure you should use is the same as when you press on your eyelids without feeling discomfort.
In small areas use the tip of your fingers. In larger areas it uses the palm. Gently touch the skin of your baby and massage your muscles gently.
