Newborn | Bathtime Massage
During bath time, give your baby a calming foot massage. Using the foaming cleanser or essential oil, make small circles with your thumb starting at your baby's heel, continuing to the tip of their toes. Next, do the same to their other foot. *Bonus: Turn on classical music to stimulate your baby's auditory senses during bath time.
Massage is a powerful, holistic tool that can improve physical wellbeing and promote neurological health in babies and children. Infant massage also has added benefit for mom as it has been shown to help reduce anxiety and postpartum mood disruption.
