Many caregivers use infant massage to relax and promote the
emotional bond with their baby. It can help relax your baby, prevent crying, and soothe and comfort your crying baby. Many hospitals and child care centers
provide classes on infant massage.
Massage methods vary, but general recommendations stress finding the
appropriate setting and using appropriate techniques.
