For Adopted and Fostered Babies
As we have discussed, massage has been proven to increase closeness as well as all the fantastic benefits for carers and babies. Massage is a great ‘getting to know you’ tool and enforces the power of positive touch. For babies that may not have experienced loving touch, or have experienced pain or suffering, massage can work wonders and the benefits can be seen very quickly. Trust has to be earned and boundaries respected however gentle massage is a perfect non-verbal way to express your love for them.
