Infant massage is a tool we can use to connect deeply with our baby. It allows us the opportunity to listen to them not just with our ears but with our whole being. It helps us practice being present, meeting their needs, teaching them self-regulation, and playing with and enjoying one another. Current research is showing us that infant massage has lasting positive impacts on our baby’s developing brain and body.
