Have you given your child the recommended dose of Vitamin "T" today? Never heard of it? Well, Vitamin "T", (which stands for touch), is also known as either loving touch or baby massage and it is vital to your baby's physical and emotional well being. Why is it so important? Well, the skin is the largest organ of the body and we know that when your baby is touched, Nerve Growth Factors are produced causing more development of nerve nets in your baby's nervous system. Additionally, touch stimulates your baby's developing circulatory system; it improves blood circulation thereby helping to awaken your baby's senses and muscles.
Loving Touch not only positively stimulates your baby's nervous and circulatory systems, it aids in digestion, reduces stress hormones, and improves your baby's immune function.
Combine loving touch while gazing into your baby's beautiful eyes and singing a familiar song to your baby and you are providing your baby with a beautiful multi-sensory experience that will help your baby feel safe, secure, and loved. So, give your baby a healthy dose of Vitamin T every day!
