Infant massage is one of the approaches that make an important contribution to the psychological and physiological wellbeing of both baby and mother, helping to form a harmonious relationship. Mothers in the experimental group were better adapted to motherhood, had greater confidence in their abilities, and received more support from their mothers and husbands, and a stronger relationship with their babies.
Baby massage is a wonderful way for parents to use positive touch. This gives the opportunity for special time together, incorporating not only the massage but also therapeutic hugs and holds, fun with nursery rhymes and music. Baby massage is also a fantastic way for parents to learn how their baby communicates with them, enabling parents to understand what their baby wants and comfort them with loving touch.
