Infant massage has been around for centuries, and its use has been described in China, India, and Egypt for over 2,000 years.

Not only are these all great reasons to massage your baby, but let’s face it, new babies cry, and they cry a lot! They cry when they’re hungry, wet, cold, hot, gassy, or just because they’re babies! As parents, we only want our children to be healthy, happy, and calm. So how can you, a very busy parent, help calm your fussy baby naturally?
The Tranquilo Baby Soothe Massager can help! This small, portable, safe device mimics mom’s touch to help calm fussy babies in seconds. I love it because it is a natural way to calm your baby with an ancient, proven technique. It can be used with or without the included band, giving parents the option to a) hold the massager themselves when they’re free, increasing bonding time, or b) use the massager hands-free in the band, giving moms and dads an extra set of hands so they can take care of the other hundred things they have to do! It’s the ultimate mommy’s (or daddy’s) helper! Plus it can be used at home or on the road, and it’s one of the few infant appliances that can be used well into childhood.
As a pediatrician and a Mom, I love products based on science. The Tranquilo Baby Soothe Massager not only offers parents a natural, drug-free way to calm their babies, but it offers all the benefits of infant massage. I highly recommend this product to all new parents.
