Did you know that infant massage has been around for centuries, and its use has been described in China, India, and Egypt for over 2,000 years. According to the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM), there are several health benefits to massaging infants and children. By stimulating the circulatory and digestive systems, infant massage can:
Help your baby relax, calm down and sleep more deeply
Positively affect the release of infant hormones that control stress in infants
Help reduce crying by soothing an infant
Provide more sensory stimulation
Boost an infant’s immune system
Help increase weight gain in premature babies
Even though massage is a wonderful way to calm your baby, most parents don't have time to massage their babies every time they are fussy. This is where the Tranquilo Baby Soothe Massager can help! This small, portable massager mimics mom’s fingertip massage and helps calm your fussy baby in seconds. It has 3 massagers - like 3 of your fingers -- that gently rotate on your baby's belly or back, activating your baby's natural calming response. I love the Baby Soothe Massager because it is a natural way to calm your baby with an ancient, proven technique.
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. Click here to learn more about the Tranquilo Baby Soothe Massager.
