Baby Massage for Constipation

Massage is so good for babies, parents and caregivers. And it’s fun for everyone! For babies, massage helps tone the digestive, respiratory and nervous systems, helping to reduce the incidence of colic, asthma and skin disorders. Massage also reinforces the bonding process, reduces stress for both the giver and receiver, and promotes a positive and nurturing environment.

COLIC and CONSTIPATION can be every parents and baby’s nightmare! There are specific massage routines that can provide almost instant relief from gas and bloating, sometimes it can take a few days and you also need to look at what you as the mother are eating if you are breastfeeding. One lady I taught this routine too, reported that her daughter woke in the middle of the night screaming in pain and red in the face, she said she performed this routine and almost immediately her daughter fell back to sleep!
