Dr. Brian De Benedictis

MD, MS Neonatologist & Baby Physician
Rhythmic movements like rocking help build a better bond between mother and child and can help comfort them assisting in better sleep. Rocking has also been shown to aid in the growth of a newborn by stimulating both motor and sensory development. Having a portable rocker easily accessible will ensure persistent use stimulating both motor and sensory pathways improving an infant's neurodevelopment. Recurrent stimulation of these pathways has been shown to improve overall growth and internal regulation of a baby's basic functions like breathing.

A persons allostatic stress loads can impair proper function and drive many diseases. Rocking has the unique ability by activating movement receptors that fire into the brain to help reset and lower these damaging responses. This can have profound positive effects on energy, mood, pain, digestion, immune, and hormonal balance.
