Hi mga sis. Before, I was having a hard time in putting my baby to sleep. Tapos, madalas pa syang gumising sa gabi. Good thing that when i was looking for resources sa Internet, nakita ko ang website na ito: http://www.babycentre.co.uk/advertorials/asean/sleepcenter_ph/
After I answered the questions, a customised sleep profile for my baby was given. I printed this out and discussed it with my pedia. One of the advices there was to massage my baby every night. Ngayon kampante na ako that my baby is getting the right amount and quality of sleep.  :)

I weasd able to try a new technique on my baby's arms. As usual, I tried it on his legs pero nakikiliti pa rin sya ng husto. I rolled his arms between my hands, from elbow to wrist. He fell asleep while I was doing this. :)
hi ladylove77, i've read that technique in a leaflet. it's called "rolling" technique.pag sa legs,you roll from knee to ankle...nakakatuwa siguro tingnan ng baby mo pag nakikiliti, hehe!  :D

additional massage technique for baby's arms & legs would be the squeeze & twist. hold baby's arm with your hands,as if you were holding a baseball bat, then squeeze & twist his arm gently. then do the same with baby's leg -from hip to foot.

Thanks so much for the tips, mommy martedi! Eversince I got a customised sleep profile for my baby, I added massage in his bedtime routine na. Ngayon, am so happy because ang bilis na nyang makatulog tapos mahaba pa talaga ang sleep niya.  :)

Touch Therapy plays a significant role in promoting the proper growth and healthy development of infants. Physically, massage stimulates the nerves, increases blood flow and strengthens the immune system. It can relieve conditions such as colic and constipation.   

The values of touch therapy do not only address and develop the physical development of the babies because the parent-child bonding also springs from the nurturing touch between a mother and a baby.

Benefits of Touch Therapy

• Stimulates baby’s circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems
• Improves mobility, makes muscles more supple
• Relaxes baby
• Helps baby grow
• A bonding tool between baby and mother as well as with other family members.
• Aids in the secretion of prolactin –also known as the “mothering hormone”, which assists in milk production
• Helps build a stronger immune system

Importance of Lifelong Massage

Infant massage is a bonding activity between parents and their children. In the most basic terms, infant or pediatric massage refers to the process of stroking the muscles of an infant using a variety of specialized massage techniques. Vocalization, eye-to-eye contact, and other positive behavioral reinforcements are also important components of the massage.
Infant massage is being embraced by a wide variety of professionals who are incorporating it into their practices to help families cope with children with special needs as well as healthy full term newborns. Techniques are simple and effective and are most likely performed by parents and primary caregivers who have been taught by certified infant massage instructors. The approach is empowering and improves the parent-infant attachment process. There is a growing body of research that supports the therapeutic benefits.
