Babies are a real blessing, but let’s speak the truth – they can be pretty irritating with their constant crying. Sometimes it seems like they’re crying for no reason at all, and mothers are supposed to read the signs babies send, which is technically walking in the dark, especially for new mothers.
Babies usually cry because they’re tired, hungry, sleepy or in pain. They may also cry due to colic, allergies or acid reflux. Whatever the reason, reflexology can help. This ancient technique can soothe the discomfort babies experience by applying pressure on certain points of their feet, and will help them relax in just a minute. Here are the points on your baby’s feet you should massage to make them stop crying immediately:
Massaging the arch of the baby’s foot will relieve digestive problems such as bowel obstruction or heartburn. Massaging the lower arch of the foot can soothe pain in the lower abdomen as well as digestive problems such as constipation or bloating.
The top of your baby’s feet is linked to colds, coughs and chest congestion, which can be relieved by massaging this exact point.
To relieve sinus and other respiratory problems, you should massage the top of your baby’s feet.
Massage the heel of your baby’s foot to relax their pelvic muscles and improve their posture. However, have in mind that this is only a temporary measure.
Head and teeth
To relieve the pain caused by teething or ear infections, massage the tips of your baby’s toes.
This point lies where the nerves of the stomach and lungs meet. Although the cause of pain in this spot is often unknown, it can be relieved by massaging the upper arch of your baby’s feet.
