Research has revealed that routine touch and massage is critical, not only to bonding, but also to baby’s growth and development, communication, and learning. Incorporating infant massage into your regular baby care routine is a wonderful start, and oh so easy. You can even take classes in many locales if you aren't sure how to start. Gentle washing at bath time, and playing with the water in the tub is also fun. Boo loved songs I would sing to him while moving his legs and arms in a little dance. A local baby time circle at your library or community centre is a great way to meet other moms and learn many of these types of action songs.
The JOHNSON’S® Brand believes every baby can benefit from a loving touch, and that they deserve #SoMuchMore - more bonding, more sensory stimulation, more opportunities for skin-to-skin touch. This is a very special story of how a mother's intuition and parental touch worked a real miracle.
Johnson's has a variety of products for use in bathing and massaging baby, and they provide plenty of tips and ideas on their website as well.
