Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
1 year old baby
Hi Preeti! I did not do any malish for myself and for baby i did myself. I wasnt comfortable about malishwali for my child so did it myself
so agree with your views Priya..thank u.. it's just that so much of info is floating around these days..helps to know from other moms.
from when did u start? as even u maybe weak post delivery
hi preeti...scientifically no logic on maalish for either...it's only for new moms to relax lil...for baby it again calms n relaxes...no logic of bone being strong etc...in foreign countries they don't do it but babies also grow right...
Dr. Payal M
I beg to differ. maalish when done correctly is supposed to be great for neuromuscular development of a baby. it doesn't mean those who dont do it won't develop as much of anything like tht..
in fact I have been told tht even docs abroad r recognising the benefits of a good maalish fr babies. I'll post relevant links when I find a good source.
And if u think abt it..we go for spas n massage etc as it has so many benefits right..
Dr Payal, I would want to massage the baby myself. is that advisable or going for a malishwali?
If you are confident about massaging the baby, then you can do it yourself. Its also great for bonding with the baby and relaxes baby, i have found my baby sleeping better when massaged. Maalishwalis, on the other hand, may have experience doing baby massages, and you can employ their services for a few days and learn from them, if you don't know how to do it.
agree with Shiba..baby relaxed and gets better sleep after message..i employed a maalishwali for a month learned and also saw some videos of baby message for better learning..now m doing message of my baby before bath and before bedtime...it relaxed him and also give us a gr8 fun time..baby enjoys the message more when done by moms i guess
