“Nursing contact, holding and touch facilitate emotional growth and attachment between parent and baby. Infant massage incorporates several elements of bonding (eye to eye contact, touch, odor, verbal communication and biorhythmicity) into a structured program of parent-child interaction (Evans 1990).
