How To Massage a Newborn Baby Correctly

Newborn babies are the most fragile beings. They need utmost care and dedication for their proper development. Mothers need to be very efficient while taking care of the newborn baby. All their body parts are in the process of development and growth. Thus, mishandling them while lifting or carrying could be troublesome. Massaging is necessary for ensuring proper development of the baby. It even helps to improve the flow of blood in their body and makes them feel relaxed.

Listed below few tips to know how to massage a newborn baby:

One should ensure that the room is warm and the baby is comfortable in the room temperature. Massaging a baby for half an hour is enough in a day. This will ensure good sleep and healthy playtime for the baby.

Massaging the legs and feet: A newborn baby tries to do a lot of leg movement. The legs make an effort to lift them up, so they need to be strong. Thus, start massaging the legs of the baby by adding few drops of olive oil. Press the feet of the baby to make them feel relaxed. Give a gentle press from heel to toe of the baby. Do not press too hard to hurt them. Move gradually towards ankles and knees and massage the area well. Also, go a little up to their tummy and press it gently downwards. It will eventually help the baby to release the gas from the stomach.

Massaging the upper body: Hands, shoulders and tummy need a proper massage. Do not use an excess of oil. Massage the hands and shoulder gently. Slightly massage the neck area as well. When it comes to tummy, move your hands clockwise. Do not press the tummy of the baby, as it may hurt him. If the umbilical cord is attached to the belly button, avoid that area. However, do not use the full force of your hands while giving a massage.

Massaging head, face and back: Baby’s head is the most delicate part. It has many soft spots that need not be pressed. So, give a gentle massage to make them feel relaxed. If the baby cries, try to divert his mind and engage him in playful acts. When it comes to face, be as soft as you can. Massage the forehead area down to cheeks.

Turn the baby and start massaging his back. Lay down the baby on the stomach and gently rub the back and the hip area. However, if the baby is uncomfortable in this position, stop right there. Do not compel the baby for the massage. Also, make sure that the baby feels relaxed. In many cases, you will notice, that the baby sleeps right after the massage.

How to connect emotionally with your baby

The relationship of the child and the parents is the most beautiful bond of love and trust. Even then, parents feel confused about how to connect with the child emotionally. There are few ways to connect with your child emotionally.

The relationship between parents and the child is a unique one. The beauty of this relationship is based on unconditional love. However, love is not enough to connect with your child emotionally. A child needs to have trust in his or her parents as well. The emotional connection is important as it helps the child to feel comfortable in telling anything to the parents. The emotional bond helps the child to feel empowered with the love of the parents. Most parents feel clueless about what is the right way to connect with the child. Every child is unique but there are few ways that can help you to connect with your child emotionally. 

How to connect emotionally with your baby?

Take out some playing time

Playing with your child not just helps him or her to feel happy, it also creates a bond of love and affection. Despite your busy routine and struggles of daily life, you should never miss out a chance to develop an every lasting emotional bond with the child.

Take interest in the child’s activities 

Every day your child learns something new about the world. However, it might always be a good thing. So, if you take interest in your child’s activities you will get to know more about his emotional state. The child too will feel happy that his or her parents are always interested in his or her activities.

Spend some alone time

Some kids are apple of mommy’s eye or papa’s angel. This happens when you take out the child to spend some alone time with you. You must spend time with your child individually and as a team as well. This helps the child to confide in you about the fears and problems.

Don’t expose him or her to technology

Many parents make the mistake of handing over a smartphone or a laptop to the child to keep him or her busy. However, this is a wrong practice as it makes the child isolated from his or her own parents. As a result, you miss out on wonderful opportunities to share the love of your child.

Understand the emotions

Just because a child is young doesn’t mean you’ll not respect his or her emotions. An emotional connection is a two-way street. To gain the emotional bond with the child, you have to give equal importance to his or her emotions as well.
