The Benefits of Baby Massage
Baby massage provides many benefits for your little one. Showering your baby with lots of loving, gentle touches helps them feel loved and nurtured, which keeps them happy and more relaxed. This contributes to their overall emotional wellbeing, helps them sleep better, and increases that precious bond between you and your child.
The International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) also suggests that baby massage can help stimulate your little one’s circulatory and digestive system, which can assist with gas, cramps, colic, constipation, and even teething discomfort.
Nunu’s baby oil is formulated with soothing and nourishing ingredients to relax and gently ease your baby to sleep while keeping their delicate skin soft and supple.
