In parts of Africa, Asia and South and Central America, women havemassaged their babies for centuries.The practice is well recognized in the West andin Britain today; it is even offered in health clinics under the National Health Service.Baby massage is an integral part of the help we offer our clients at our Healthy StartClinics.These crying, sleep, feeding and behaviour clinics were set up to advise andsupport parents who have difficulties with early parenting challenges. Inexperiencedparents attending were too nervous to touch their babies.This led to problems, asinfants need plenty of positive touch to feel secure. Others had difficultyunderstanding their infants. If a baby cries and his parent does not know how to‘make it better’ by removing the cause of distress or providing affection, the babytends to cry more.This frustrates the parent, and a pattern is set for a downwardspiral. Some parents cannot cope with an incessantly crying baby, and need effectiveways of coping. Others suffered from postnatal depression, a common conditionthat has a profoundly damaging effect on the bonding process between mother andinfant. Often, the relationship is damaged even after the condition is alleviated.Baby massage seemed to be a practical solution to these problems.Throughmassaging their babies, parents gain confidence in handling them.They learn towatch and interpret their baby’s reaction to touch, which sheds light on the infant’snatural rhythms, and on what he likes and dislikes, making it easier for the parentsINTRODUCTION❖flexpaper.studylead.comto understand him, and sometimes, to tolerate their own inability to soothe him.When parents enjoy watching and recognizing their child’s reactions, and respondto them, the baby reacts back. A positive relationship develops between them.Parents who consulted us became visibly more affectionate towards their babies, andtheir children seemed happier and more self-assured. Parents reported that theirbabies were calmer, cried less and slept better since they began to massage them.Parents of babies who cried a lot, usually colicky babies, claimed that even whenmassage did not calm their child, they felt better for trying to do somethingpositive, which made it easier to cope. In the case of postnatally depressed mothers,there is emerging research evidence that baby massage has a beneficial role indeveloping the relationship between them and their babies.These encouraging results, and the belief that all families can benefit from massage,spurred us on to write this book. Massage can strengthen your baby’s muscles andjoints and help relieve the symptoms of some ailments that are common in the earlyyears of life. But most importantly, it allows you to express your love for your childthrough touch, and helps you establish a relationship with him early on in his life.This book is divided into four chapters.The first chapter, Key Techniques,demonstrates step-by-step all the strokes you need to give your baby a full-bodymassage, and advises on how to introduce massage into your baby’s routine. EverydayCare suggests ways to incorporate additional positive touch into your daily routine,and shows how baby massage is approached in various cultures.There is also asection on how massage benefits children with special needs. Massage for Different AgeGroups outlines the ination you need to adapt your massage techniques to suitflexpaper.studylead.comyour child’s developing physical and emotional needs as he grows from infancy intotoddlerhood.There are also special strokes for premature babies. Finally, EasingCommon Problems shows techniques to help alleviate the symptoms of colic, wind,constipation, teething and dry skin, and strategies to deal with fractious crying.The importance of touch in a child’s emotional, social and physical development iswell-documented, and where relevant or illuminating, such ination ishighlighted in boxes throughout the book to give parents an insight into childpsychology.We also reveal the results of research studies, allowing parents theopportunity to draw their own conclusions about what is right for their child.The loving touch you share with your child through massage will enhance yourrelationship with him. But more than that, it will give him the security he needs togrow into a happy, confident and emotionally secure adult.Nicki BainbridgeRGN RHV B.Sc Hons ITECNurse and Specialist Health VisitorDr Alan HeathBA Hons M.Sc Ph.D A.F.B.Ps.SConsultant Child Psychologistflexpaper.studylead.comflexpaper.studylead.comKEYTECHNIQUES❖❖MASSAGING YOUR BABY IS A WONDERFULTHING TO DO.IT IS SO SIMPLE IN TERMS OFTECHNIQUE,YET SO POWERFUL IN WHATIT CONVEYS – YOUR LOVE,YOURUNDERSTANDING AND YOUR ATTENTION.THIS SECTION INTRODUCES THE BASICTECHNIQUES AND MAPS OUT A HEAD-TO-TOE MASSAGE PROGRAMME FOR YOURBABY.APART FROM A FEW ESSENTIALS,THERE IS NO ‘RIGHT’ OR ‘WRONG’ WAY TOMASSAGE YOUR BABY.INFANT MASSAGE ISABOUT BEING TOGETHER AND BEING INTOUCH WITH EACH OTHER PHYSICALLYAND EMOTIONALLY.flexpaper.studylead.comRESEARCH EVIDENCE A research study was carried outin Australia in 1992 with fathersand their babies to assess theimpact of baby massage on thefather-child relationship. A groupof first-time fathers were shownhow to massage their four-week-old babies, and asked to continuefor the duration of the study. Acontrol group of fathers who didnot massage their babies was alsomonitored. It was found that at12 weeks old, babies who weremassaged greeted their fatherswith more eye contact, smiling,vocalizing and touch than those inthe control group.They showedmore orientating responses totheir fathers, and less avoidancebehaviour.The fathers showedgreater day-to-day involvementwith their infants. Baby massageallows fathers and babies to enjoythe skin-to-skin contact thatmothers often experience throughbreastfeeding, but fathers oftenmiss out on. By massaging theirbabies, fathers come tounderstand their child’s rhythmsand responses, and become moreconfident about handling them.WHY MASSAGE❖❖SECURITYPositive physical contact between aparent and child makes the babyfeel loved and valued.This feelingallows her self-esteem and self-confidence to develop.❖GENERAL WELL-BEINGResearch shows that babies whoare touched lovingly become ill and cry less often than those whoare not. Massage can improvecirculation and also boost theimmune system, as it helps tomove lymph fluid around the body,which clears harmful substancesfrom the body. Massage may relievepain and the symptoms of someailments. It promotes relaxationand can help soothe a crying infant.❖PHYSICAL GROWTHMassage promotes physical self-awareness, tones muscles andmakes joints more flexible. In thisway it is especially beneficial forpremature babies see pages 62–65,those with low birth-weight andchildren with special needs seepages 56–59.❖SOCIAL SKILLSTouching your baby teaches herabout communication. Massagehelps you establish a non-verbal❖RELAXATIONWhen you massage your baby, youfocus on her completely andinteract with her. Parents reportthat they find this interactionenjoyable and relaxing.❖DEVELOPING SENSITIVITYBecause your baby cannot tell youif she likes a stroke or finds thepressure you apply uncomfortable,you must watch her reaction andinterpret it. In this way, you learnto ‘read’ or understand her, whichimproves your parenting skills.❖CONFIDENCE BUILDINGParents who are sensitive to theirchildren tend to feel confident intheir roles. Also, the physicalcontact of massage makes themcomfortable with handling babies.❖PARENT-CHILD RELATIONSHIPThe non-verbal communicationyou share with your baby throughmassage sparks an interactiverelationship with her that you cancontinue into the future. Massagecan also become a regular time ofintimacy between you.BABY MASSAGE IS SIMPLE TO LEARN and to do.It requires little extra ‘equipment’ andcosts virtually nothing, except time.The long- and short-term benefits to infants aregreat, and massaging their children has apositive impact on parents, too.BENEFITS FOR BABIEScommunication with your childthat enhances your early relationshipwith her, and therefore builds herself-esteem and sociability.BENEFITS FOR PARENTS12KEY TECHNIQUESflexpaper.studylead.comflexpaper.studylead.comPREPARING TO MASSAGE❖KEY TECHNIQUESCAUTIONS❖Oiling your baby whilemassaging him may make himslippery, so beware of droppinghim when you lift him up afteryou finish the massage. Pick himup in a towel until the oil hasbeen absorbed by the skin.❖If you suspect that your childmay be allergic to nuts or seeds,make sure you use an oil that you know to be free of nut orseed products.❖Do not use essential oilsaromatherapy oils on babiesunless directed by a trainedaromatherapist.❖Do not massage your baby ifhe has a temperature.This isparticularly important if you are unsure of the cause.❖If your child has any ofcancer that is being treatedactively, do not massage him, asyou may spread the disease aroundthe body. However, if your childis receiving palliative care, massagewill be beneficial. Check withyour doctor if you are unsure.THE BEST TIME to massage your baby iswhen he is awake and feeling happy.Youshould be feeling calm and relaxed yourself, asyour baby will pick up and be affected by yourmood. Make sure you remove any jewelleryand trim your nails to a suitable length toavoid scratching his delicate skin. Gathereverything you need around you, so that whenyou begin you can concentrate on the strokes,and on what your baby needs and likes,making the whole experience as soothingand pleasurable as possible for both of you.USING OILWHY USE OILSkin-to-skin contact promotesoptimum growth and development,so undressing your baby andmassaging him naked is a way ofencouraging this. Oil helps yourhands moveover your baby’s body smoothly,allowing you to make long, firm,continuous strokes without causingfriction. Oil moisturizes skin, whichcan prevent or alleviate dryness.WHICH OILUse a natural oil, such as sunfloweroil or grape-seed oil – these light,low-odour oils are easilyabsorbed by the skin and helpto nurture it. Choose anorganic variety if available.Natural oils are less likelythan synthetic oils toirritate the skin. Incountries where babymassage is a tradition,the oil used depends onavailability. People fromAfrican and Asiancultures living in theWest tend to use readilyavailable oils that aresimilar to those usedtraditionally in theirhomelands, such as olive oil.14flexpaper.studylead.comPATCH TESTA patch test allows you to makesure your baby is not allergic to,or her skin irritated by, the oilyou choose.Typical adversereactions are a rash or a red,inflamed area.1Place a little oil on the insideof your baby’s wrist or ankle.2Leave for 20–30 minutes toallow time for a severe reactionto show.To eliminate sensitivityaltogether, wait for 12–24 hours.3If there is no irritation afterthis time, proceed with themassage. If irritation does occur,DO NOT use the oil.❖ A WARM ROOMBabies lose heat quickly whenuncovered and oil tends to reducebody heat, so the room must bewarm enough to keep your babycomfortable. 80F 26C is the idealroom temperature. If you feel warmenough in short sleeves, the room islikely to be fine for massage.❖ THE QUIET-ALERT STATEMassage your baby when he is in the ‘quiet-alert state’.This iswhen he is awake, alert and bright,or when he is taking an intenseinterest in things around him, butremains quiet and still. He will bemost receptive at this time.❖ TIMEAllow 20–30 minutes to per a full-body massage to begin with. Rushing or trying to fit it in between other activities can be counterproductive as it mayunsettle your baby. Once you areboth familiar with the massage,you may need less time.❖ A QUIET,CALM ATMOSPHEREBoth of you will enjoy the massagem
