touch therapy / infant massage
« on: July 08, 2008, 09:12:59 pm »

Hi mommies! I was reading an article about touch therapy and it said: "studies show that touch therapy, including massage, contributes to a healthy weight gain, enhanced growth and social development in infants." Kahit wala pa akong baby, I believe na important ito not just for babies but for everyone.

Share naman po kayo ng experiences ninyo on touch therapy. Also, how do you massage your babies?

Hi zia! Madami talagang benefits ang touch therapy like making your baby's bones strong and boosts the immune system.
Ako after taking a bath, I apply lotion on my baby's limbs and massage it lightly.

touch therapy has many benefits...relaxation - better sleep, good for the circulatory & digestive system.and it's also a way of mommy-baby bonding.

yes mommynako, even for toddlers pwedeng-pwede pa rin ang touch therapy. Kahit gaano pa tayo katanda, we still need that. Sabi nga nila touch is the language of love. I just read nga na additional benefit ng touch therapy is it boosts self-confidence.

Mommies, kasama sa touch therapy ang carrying baby whenever he/she cries. Naniniwala ba kayo na nakaka-spoil if everytime baby cries eh binubuhat natin sya?

i don't think nakaka-spoil yun. they cry because they feel something,maybe hungry,wet,or may pain.so dapat we check on them....touching is a loving way to bond with our babies.when we touch them, they become confident & well-adjusted.

My approach to this is putting baby oil on my 4-month-old infant after baths. Doing an infant massage which I learned from babycenter.com and letting him have a skin-to-skin contact with me whenever possible (infants feels secured with this based on a clinical study accrdg. to a baby magazine).

Thanks martedi for your reply regarding carrying baby whenever he/she cries. I would like to get more personal experiences pa sana regarding this. :)

Kanina, I was reading a magazine that featured massaging techniques on babies. I would like to share them with you although perhaps some of you are already doing this na.

Gently massage baby's forehead with circular strokes. Continue over temples, hinges of the jaw, behind the ears, and the rest of the scalp.
