Must read for all the new mommies! You can give relief to your fussy babies by doing some foot reflexology
Babies are also prone to tummy problems like bowel obstruction. In order to give them relief, kindly first consult the physician that takes care of the baby. After that you can massage the center of the soles of the feet, which corresponds to the upper abdomen to give them relief.
For problems in lower abdomen, try and rub the lower regions of the soles of the feet. This will give them instant relief from constipation problems and will ensure smooth flow of waste in the intestine.
Note: Kindly consult the physician that normally takes care of the baby’s health, before doing any of the massages or the applying pressure on the baby’s foot. Sometimes the ailment can also be treated only medically.
By massaging the pelvis area of a baby, you can resolve several pain issues like colic. One of the most common problems of a baby is colic pain. Try the pelvic hold by holding your baby’s heels and then follow the baby’s movements. You can also try massaging the heels starting from the bottom of the heels to the top gently.
7Reflexology helps a baby sleep
As per the National health Institute, reflexology can also help a baby sleep by reducing any pain and anxiety they may be experiencing. The feet of a baby requires very gentle pressure so when massaging the feet, make sure you do it slowly with gentle pressure. Massage only for one or two minutes. In case you find your baby protesting, stop and try again later.
8Reflexology is safe
Reflexology is considered relatively safe because it only involves massage. You aren’t feeding your baby anything. However, if you are unsure, you can consult your doctor before attempting it on your baby. Do not replace this treatment with the medication and treatment prescribed by your doctor as it should only be performed as a support treatment.
