Background: Infants and toddlers from birth to 2 years of age understand their environment mainly through the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Studies have shown that baby massages can benefit the physical and mental growth of infants and children. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of infant massage on the physical development of babies. Methods: The subjects of this study were healthy infants of age 2 to 18 months, recruited from day care centers. A total of thirty participants were randomly assigned either to the experimental group or the control group, with each group containing 15 babies. The parents of the experimental group participated in infant massage sessions for one hour each week for four consecutive weeks, while the control group did not undergo any massage sessions. Prior to the first week's massage session and after the fourth was over, the height, weight, head circumference, and bust circumference of all subjects were measured, and each baby's daily milk intake and non-staple food intake and excretion times were recorded. Results: After the infant massage course, the daily intake of non-staple foods in the experimental group was significantly higher than that in the control group, but no significant differences were found in the weight, length, head circumference, bust circumference, milk intake, and excretion times. Conclusion: The experimental group, which received infant massage intervention, had higher non-staple food intake; there were no significant differences between the two groups in weight, length, head circumference, and bust circumference.
