BABY MASSAGE AND PARENTING TOOLS
Touch is your baby’s most developed sense at birth and it is as necessary for the human baby as is food.
Touch is comforting and reassuring and the sense you use most – cuddling, stroking, holding and caressing your baby.
Research at the University of Miami School of Medicine suggests that massage can stimulate nerves in the brain that facilitate food absorption,resulting in faster weight gain. Massage can lower stress hormones, resulting in improved immune function. Touch therapy can also help premature infants gain weight faster, asthmatic children improve breathing function, diabetic children comply with treatment and sleepless babies fall asleep more easily. Massage instill a sense of security, love, comfort and stability which all build self-confidence and self-esteem. It also has an influence on relationships with people, in order to grow up as a loving and caring person. Baby massage strengthen the bond between the parent and their baby and enhances the relationship for years to come.
At Kidz Cross, our BABY MASSAGE classes have become a support network for parents. As first-time parents we are often bombarded with information and parenting can be quite scary. We have created an environment where moms can relax and talk about their fears and share their joys of motherhood.
