Your hands are the centres of feeling and expression. If you want your baby in the ‘palm of your hand’ then you must use them and feel with them.
Massaging your baby provides you with a meditative period, a unique time to focus on your baby through your hands. If you allow yourself to become distracted, your baby could get distracted.
hake your hands from your wrists before you start as this is a good way to relax and loosen them up. If you observe yourself becoming distracted during the massage, come back to this, shake your hands out again and turn your attention away from your thoughts and focus on feeling.
