Abstract

Some of the benefits of baby massage include increasing appetite, doubling the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding, increasing body weight, increasing endurance, making babies sleep more soundly, and fostering attachment between parents and children. This research aims to determine the effect of infant massage on weight gain in infants at the Independent Practice of Midwife Zuniawati and Misni Herawati in 2019. This study uses a quantitative approach; the method used in this study is a quasi-experimental type of pre-posttest control group design. The population is newborns in PMB Zuniawati and Misni. Sample 30 treated 30 controls. The sampling technique was purposive sampling. The mean difference between before and after being given a baby massage in the intervention group was 263.33 gr. The difference in the mean between before and after the control group increased by 78.33 gr. The increase in infant weight in the intervention group was higher than in the control group. Statistical test results were significant differences between the weight gain of infants before and after treatment both in the treatment group and the control group.
