Baby Massage for constipation, wind and gas
Tummy massage can help with wind pain directly by assisting pockets of air to move through the large intestine. Massage will also encourage a release of endorphins in your baby which help to block pain. After receiving a massage, your baby’s seratonin levels will increase, helping them drift off to sleep.
Baby Tummy Massage for Gas and Constipation
While your baby is laying on her back, gently rub her tummy in a clockwise motion and then pull your hands down the curve of the belly. Massaging in a clockwise direction helps to move gas along as that is the route the intestinal tract follows. Repeat several times to help move trapped gas.
