Congrats Nayantara, So now you are a mother of a healthy baby. You can start massaging your baby as early as 4-5 days after the birth. you shouldn’t massage your baby’s abdomen until the belly button is totally healed. Massaging your baby’s feet and hands may be the best place to start.Either before or after bath time can be a good time for massage. massaging in the evening helps the baby to unwind and thus help her to sleep better.Premature babies can benefit greatly from being gently massaged. If your baby suffers from a serious condition that requires specialist care, then you should not massage.

Massaging the baby has many benefits. It is a great bonding time between the mother and the baby. It improves blood circulation. It stimulates neurological development and development of nervous system. It also improves immune system. It also helps to relieve discomfort from gas, colic and constipation. It soothes and comforts the baby.
