Master class: baby massage

If the pediatrician, observing the baby, gave the “green light” to the idea of ​​home massage, act!

Do not forget that different methods affect the nervous system of children in different ways: stroking, rubbing and kneading are soothed, and clapping, on the contrary, excite. Keep this in mind when choosing a time for a massage session.

Massage should be done only if the baby’s skin is clean and healthy, otherwise you risk bringing infection. By the way, pay attention to the lighting that accompanies the session: it is important that it helps to quickly notice possible changes on it.

The most important condition for starting a class is the desire of the child to take part in it. A prerequisite is a comfortable temperature for the nude in the room (20–22 ° C), the absence of drafts and a warm coating on the table.

Deal with your baby 1 hour before or 1 hour after feeding. And do not use creams and ointments for massage, it is better to take baby oil.
