Baby Massage For Constipation
Baby massage for constipation. There’s nothing more frustrating for your baby than a bout of constipation. Constipation is usually rare in infants due to their liquid diet but this doesn’t make them immune and it does happen. It is important not to get stressed about it when it occurs and remember there are ways to help your little one.
Why Baby Massage For Constipation?
Several obvious signs that your baby is constipated are:-
- If their poop is hard and looks like pebbles. One or two pebble diapers isn’t generally any cause for concern. However, you are advised to seek medical treatment if this occurs three or more times or if you see any bleeding.
- If they look uncomfortable when pooping and if their poop is tinged with blood from irritation to their anus.
- A longer time gap than usual between their bowel movements.
Constipation often occurs in babies when they are first being introduced to solid foods. It can also be an indicator that your baby has a milk or soy protein sensitivity. On occasions, this can also occur due to a lack of tolerance to something in their formula or breast milk. Lactose intolerance can also cause constipation and this occurs more often when babies are formula fed.
