Often when babies experience discomfort, the only way they know how to express that is to cry.
Cranky babies can be suffering from various things — including tummy pains, constipation, congestion, and the flu.
And though pediatrician-recommended treatments and medications are always crucial to follow, soothing home remedies might make good additions to Mom and Baby’s routine.
In our exclusive guide below, we share some foot reflexology tips that could help calm fussy babies.
Each area of the foot corresponds to different organs, muscles, and body parts — and by gently applying pressure to these areas, you can help relieve discomfort brought on by congestion and blockage.
Foot reflexology is known to have very nurturing, therapeutic effects, even with adults. Because the ligaments and muscles in babies’ feet have yet to develop fully, they tend to be far more receptive to the gentle reflexology rubs.
