The Baby Sleeping Secret

We've heard it from the pros... massage your baby and you could both get more sleep!!

According to a recent study at the Tel Aviv University and the University of Haifa in Israel, two groups of infants were studied.  Those babies that received a 30-minute rubdown every night for two weeks were more in sync with their mothers - they were most active in the early morning and afternoon.

Those that didn't get bedtime massages were awake at midnight.  The babies that received massages produced more melatonin, the hormone that helps promote sleep.

The massage secret:  we're told that that you should hold your infant's head with one hand and, with the other, lightly stroke your baby's back in a circular motion.  Apply slow, rhythmic strokes using a baby-safe oil and pay attention to what your baby likes.
