Massage these 7 points on Baby’s feet to stop crying Immediately

Because a baby cannot speak with words for a long time, their only form of communication when something is wrong is crying. Sometimes parents can easily soothe the baby right away. However, any parent knows there can be times when a solution to your baby’s problem is hard to find.

Studies show that a crying baby can be soothed by the calming effects of “reflexology.” This ancient Chinese medical practice has been around for thousands of years with a technique that all parents are capable of learning.

The basic idea of reflexology is that our feet have nerve endings in them that can be stimulated by massaging certain pressure points. Just like you would press on your temple or in between your thumb and pointer finger to release the pain of a headache, reflexology helps to pin-point spots in your feet that can soothe pain in different areas of the body.

1. HEAD AND TEETH

Massage your baby’s tips of its toes when they are teething to soothe their pain. You can do it while they are sleeping so they will be less likely to wake up from the teething pain.

2. SINUSES

The underside of the center of your baby’s toes is connected to the sinuses. By gently massaging these spots, you will help your baby with a range of allergy and cold symptoms, as well as with their sinus pain.

3. CHEST

If your baby struggles with congestion in its chest, then gently apply pressure on the pads of their feet, just under your baby’s toes and above the arch. That area corresponds to their chest. By massaging this spot in a circular manner, you will help your baby relieve the discomfort from coughing and congestion.

4. SOLAR PLEXUS

If your baby has discomfort due to its upset tummies, tightness, spasms, or has trouble breathing, a light and gentle massage to the center of their foot, just below the pads of their feet where the arch begins, can do wonders for your baby.

5. UPPER ABDOMEN

By massaging the space between the pads of your baby’s feet and the middle of their foot, you can alleviate problems with indigestion, heartburn, and constipation.

6. LOWER ABDOMEN

The spot between the middle of your baby’s foot and their heel is connected to the lower abdomen. By massaging it, you can help your baby if they are suffering from bloating and gas in the lower intestine. They are very common reasons for their discomfort.

7. PELVIS

The heel of the foot is linked to the tummy, the hips, and the pelvis. Because babies grow fastly, tightness and pain in their hip area are very common. By lightly rubbing your baby’s heel you can alleviate this problem with constipation and a sore tummy.

Should you have any other concerns for the health of your baby, by all means, visit a doctor. However, reflexology is a safe and effective complementary therapy and it is worth trying.
