Caring and Touching Hands – Cathie O`Reilly Noble

Baby massage is an ancient art that connects you to your baby, it also helps you to understand your baby’s particular non-verbal language and to respond with love and respectful listening.

Caring & Touching Hands

The deep emotional bonds formed in infancy lay a foundation for a lifetime of trust, courage, dependability, faith and love. Your child also learns what healthy, respectful touch is by being touched in this way. (Eliot 1999)

The benefits of baby massage to parents:

  • Develops awareness of baby’s behavioral states.
  • Practice listening to baby’s subtle communication signals or ‘cues’.
  • Increased feelings of competence and confidence in parenting.
  • Relaxes parents by the release of the nurturing hormone prolactin.
