Here are the top four benefits of infant massage: 

 

Improves sleep. In a study by Tiffany Field, PhD, at Touch Research Institutes at the University of Miami School of Medicine, infants and toddlers with sleep onset problems showed fewer sleep delays after being massaged by their parents for 15 minutes before bedtime each day for a month (as opposed to babies who were read a bedtime story). Massage helps babies sleep deeper and more soundly—and you’ll sleep better if they’re sleeping better!

Stimulates growth hormone for weight gain in underweight babies. Dr. Field also studied massage for preterm babies (preemies) and found that preemies who were massaged three times a day for 15 minutes gained 47 percent more weight and left the hospital an average of six days earlier than those who were not massaged. When a baby is discharged from the hospital six days early, it saves about $3,000 per infant in hospital costs. Approximately 470,000 premature infants are born each year in the United States. If they were all massaged, the savings would amount to $4.7 billion in hospital costs per year. Not to mention the emotional benefits to the parents.

Improves overall functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. Colic, constipation and gas can cause a lot of distress for both babies and parents. Easy-to-learn massage techniques can help move along digestion and move out the gas that is causing distress, often relieving pain and discomfort in just a few minutes. Relieves the pain and discomfort of teething. Teething is one of the most stressful times for babies and parents. A special facial massage technique helps release endorphins, the body’s natural pain reliever. Massage also reduces levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.

 

 

 

Benefits of a Lactation Massage 

 

Breast massages are good for any woman for health reasons. From taking care of sore muscles to being able to easily identify any breast tumours, all women should add a breast massage to their daily routine. For lactating mothers, however, it is vital. Here are some benefits of Lactation Massage for breastfeeding mothers:

 

Healthier Milk

A thirty-minute massage twice a day experienced that the sodium levels in their breast milk had reduced. There was also increased levels of lipids, solids, gross energy and casein. The only thing that showed no signs of change was the content of lactose in breast milk.

 

Reduced Pain

Mothers who had been given the massages experienced less pain while breastfeeding. Their babies were also able to consume more milk as it was easier for them to drain the breast.

 

Better Milk Flow

Studies have shown that a massage while breastfeeding works well to empty out the milk ducts and stimulate more milk production. A good lactation massage can help to produce Oxytocin, which helps in relaxing the milk duct muscles.

 

Better Latching

Babies find it difficult to latch on to the nipples when they are too hard. Nipple massage for lactation will help in softening the breast and ensuring that it is much easier for your baby to latch on.

 

Prevention of Saggy Breasts and Stretch Marks

Breastfeeding can take a toll on the appearance of the breast. As the breast gets bigger while nursing, you can develop stretch marks after it has to go back to its regular size when you are done with your breastfeeding period. A massage with cold-pressed oils such as olive, coconut or almond oil, can help to solve this problem. A gentle massage will help the blood start circulating. The breasts need a bit of help to get the blood flowing, even on a normal basis. This is because while the rest of the body may get movement daily, your breasts do not really move. Getting the blood flowing is said to help in retaining the youth of the body as well.
