Discuss the benefits of Infant Massage for infant, mom, and dad?
An infant can benefit from a massage as it allows them to use their senses. Although they can’t yet use their whole sense of touch, they can feel the sensation of being touched by someone else as they are being massaged. The parents also bond with their child as the baby relaxes and feels comfortable with them.
What time of day and how often could you give infants massages?
Massage can be provided to infants at any time of the day, provided it is at a time that works with their parents’ schedules. Usually, it is done in the morning or before the baby goes to bed. They can also have it once a day.
How does it help develop a ‘body image’ for the child?
A massage can help improve the image of infants’ bodies, making them feel more comfortable and relaxed. They learn to care for their bodies as they grow and know that other people love them.
What new information did you learn from the video and readings?
Providing a massage to infants can also help strengthen the bond between parents and their children. The parents can spend more time with their child while the massage is performed. It can help them relax and feel better if their child is experiencing a difficult time. Another essential benefit of this therapy is that it can help improve the baby’s growth and relaxation.
