Constipated Baby? Baby With Diarrhea? Here’s a tip for you!

I wanted to share a simple massage trick that can help with both constipation and diarrhea. Here’s how it works.

Look at your child’s belly button and think of it as the center of a clock. All you have to do is a gentle circular stroke around the belly button area going clockwise to get the system moving, and counter-clockwise to help slow down diarrhea.

Please remember, this massage does NOT require any pushing, kneading, or pressure. It’s what’s called a “nerve stroke” which means that you are just stimulating some nerves near the surface of the skin.

I learned about this from a massage therapist when my 6th baby was newborn, and it sure has been a help! I wish I had known about it for all of my babies! I have shared this tip with many moms and have gotten tons of feedback about it helping them a lot, so hopefully it will help you too. :)
