Helping Parents Bond and Improve the Health of their New Baby
Whether it’s grabbing at those little toes or rubbing their backs to soothe them, parents have always loved bonding with their newborns. But life can get hectic with a newborn and it’s important to make time for yourself and your baby. Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital is proud to offer a 2-week infant massage course for babies age 4 weeks to 1 year.
Beyond bonding, the course can also help with:
- Stress relief (for babies and parents)
- Growth and development
- Symptoms of colic
- Increasing parents’ confidence and sensitivity to baby’s signals and cues
- Weight gain and neurological development in premature babies
