The power of a mothers touch

The reason why baby massage is so beneficial to young babies is because touch is their most powerful sense, this is how they communicate with the world around them.

Touch is instinctive in both mother and baby, to comfort, to heal and to bond. When mothers touch and massage their babies the hormone oxytocin is released in both baby and mummy- this is the love drug! And it gives you that warm, snuggly and loving feeling.

This is why skin to skin contact is so important in those early days, to build that early bond and get used to each others touch. Baby massage is the foundation of teaching baby love, respect and attachment. It can greatly help aid early developmental behaviour and social interactions.

In a baby’s early life touch and massage are the primary source of communication and the perfect way to strengthen your bond.
