  • Helps to relieve the discomfort associated with gas and colic
  • Promotes the strengthening of the digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems
  • Helps to establish that special bond between parent and baby by focusing on important elements such as eye to eye and skin to skin contact
  • Helps baby to have a more restful sleep
  • Increases parents confidence and sensitivity to baby’s cues
  • Relaxes and releases tension
