Taking your baby for hydrotherapy might be something you’re unsure of, especially when there isn’t a lot of information out there about it. As parents, you want to make sure you’re making the right choices for your baby and their health. At Giggly Panda, we want the same thing for your little one. If you’re wondering about what benefits you can expect from taking your baby or toddler to hydrotherapy, here’s just a few that we’ve heard from our clients.
Everyone has muscles, even babies, and keeping them in shape and active is important. Since babies are still developing in a lot of ways, their exercise looks a little different. Hydrotherapy helps support the weight of the baby’s body and develops their muscles at the same time.
Sooth Tummy Troubles
Many of us know that babies are prone to having digestive issues, which can make them fussy and hard to soothe. Many parents report that after a few hydrotherapy sessions their baby’s tummy troubles are better.
Help with Sleep
Hydrotherapy sessions help babies to go to sleep quicker and stay asleep, so they are less fussy during the day. The water is warm and soothing, creating an environment that is very similar to being in the womb and this gives your little one comfort and security. That feeling of relaxation will put your baby at ease so they’ll transition comfortably into sleep.
If your baby is having a hard time with eating a couple sessions with hydrotherapy could be the right answer for you. While this session is relaxing, it’s also a cardiovascular workout for your little one so it will definitely increase your baby’s appetite.
Stimulate the Senses
A baby’s first strongly developed sense is touch. They recognize the touch of their parents and feel safe and secure when they’re around them. With hydrotherapy, your baby will receive the benefits of developing their other senses, and growing the sense of touch they already know so well. In addition to strong senses, your baby’s cognitive development abilities will also increase as a benefit of hydrotherapy sessions.
Give your baby the best health and development options with hydrotherapy sessions. Giggly Panda is here to give you and your baby a positive experience with our facilities, and ensure you’re coming back for more!
