''Ah, ancient. It's a habit of the villagers.''So maybe some parents assessment of infant massage. Such assessment is unfortunate. Because in fact, infant massage is very beneficial for the new little creature was born into that world.

Many studies have proven that. One was conducted by experts from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Miami in 1986. Led by Tiffany M. Field PhD, the researchers studied premature babies who were given a massage (therapeutic touch). Apparently, premature babies are massaged regularly every day shows the physical and emotional development are better than babies who were not massaged.

Benefits of infant massage expert also expressed by Dr. Utami Roesli SpA neonatology. He said that premature babies are massaged for ten days will experience weight gain 20 to 40 percent greater than premature babies who are not massaged. In addition, he said, babies are massaged for five days, the body resistance will increase by 40 percent compared to babies who were not massaged.
Massage the baby was not only affect the physical and emotional growth of infants. If done by a father for example, then that baby massage can increase milk production (BMS) on the mother's body. This is the empowerment''father,''he said. But what about an explanation?

Utami said, when a father took the initiative to massage the baby, it would generate positive feelings on the wife. Initiatives husband makes the wife feel loved, comfortable, and other positive feelings. And feeling like this will stimulate the production of the hormone oxytocin. To note, this hormone is very useful to facilitate milk production. Research shows that 80 percent of the production of the hormone oxytocin is influenced by maternal psychological condition.

In addition, infant massage will make your baby hungry faster. It is said Utami, the more milk sucked by the baby (breastfeeding), then the milk production increased. This is because in the process of milk production apply the law of supply and demand. That is, the more milk removed, the more milk is produced. And vice versa.
