How to Massage Your Baby
The room should be warm, about 25°C, and quiet. Soothing background music can help, but make sure the TV is off. Lay your baby naked on a soft towel, and make the room warmer if she starts to feel cold.
Infant massage can be done at any time of the day, but is best done after your baby's bath, and especially in the evening before he settles down for the night.
Baby massage should not involve a lot of pressure. To get an idea of the correct amount of pressure to use, close your eyes and massage your eyeballs.
When massaging small areas, use only your fingertips. Larger areas are best massaged with the palm of your hand.
Grapeseed is the best oil to use. Avoid nut-based oils, as these can cause an allergic reaction. Regular baby oil is not recommended, but many manufacturers now make specially designed baby massage oils. Some aromatherapy oils can be particularly beneficial (such as lavender to soothe and calm), but it is important that they are correctly diluted according to the manufacturer's instructions.
