Do you find your baby getting cranky and irritated more frequently than usual? Does he/she wake up and start crying at the slightest of noise? Do you find it a big task to put your baby to sleep? Every mother loves to see her little one doze off and have a peaceful sleep. But, if your answer to all those questions was a ‘yes’, then don’t worry, you are not alone. All these could be the reason for lack of a sound and a fulfilling sleep. Not just adults, but even babies can suffer from this problem.
Simple rituals like bathing and massaging can do wonders for your baby’s sleep. Here’s how to do these correctly and effectively.
A warm bath before bed
According to researchers, having a warm bath shortly before bed can improve the sleep pattern, especially in the young ones. The warm water helps change the baby’s core body temperature so that he/she goes to bed with a lower temperature. A drop in temperature helps signal to the body that it’s time for bed.

A relaxing baby body massage
Baby body massages are an age-old practice of providing nourishment to the baby’s body. But, they can be super-effective for a relaxing sleep too. A good body massage triggers the release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that can help one feel calm. The technique has been found to benefit children of all age groups, starting from newborns to pre-teens. Take a few drops of Maaté’s Natural Baby Body Massage Oil, rub it between your palms to warm it up, and give your baby a soothing massage. We are sure the little one will doze off in no time!
