Baby’s Cues

Babies have a lot to say but not yet developed language. So they use body language, facial expressions, cries, coos and other sounds to communicate with you. Pay close attention to these signals. They are teaching you their unique way of saying what they want you to hear. When you massage your baby, you will start to learn your own baby’s unique cues as you need to make sure they are enjoying the massage and relaxing through their signs. Not all babies mean the same thing when they hiccup, hold up a hand, or look away. By understanding well of your baby’s cues, you are strengthening your bonding and relationship with your little one.

在未懂說話之前,寶寶只可以利用他們的肢體語言,面部表情,哭聲,和其他聲音與你溝通。 家長一定要學懂了解這些信號,因為這些都是你的寶寶用其獨特的方式,讓你明白他們的想法和感受。 當你按摩寶寶時,你會開始學習了解自己寶寶的獨特提示,因為你需要通過這些提示,確保他們是在享受按摩和放鬆自己。 但是要留意同一樣的提示,例如打盹、舉手或往外看,對每個寶寶來說,都有可能代表他們不同的感受,不可以一概而論。通過充分了解寶寶的提示,可以加強你與寶寶的連繫和增進兩者之間的關係。
