Benefits of baby massage

Babies thrive on touch and it's an important part of their growth and development. It's well known that skin-to-skin contact encourages the release of oxytocin, the important hormone which helps you to bond with your baby. Skin-to-skin contact can also comfort your baby when they're upset.
