3+ | Sensory Massage

Instructions

Dab a small amount of essential oil on a cotton ball and allow your little one to smell it. Next, gently massage your baby’s face with your fingertips, nuzzling in to promote connection.

The Science

This exercise is primarily focused on promoting connection between caregiver and baby. This connection is enhanced through tactile stimulation and a calming scent, which promote the release of feel good chemicals in your baby’s brain. This aids deep, restful sleep and physiological regulation in your baby.
