In this article, I will be sharing how massage help your baby when he experiences discomfort or pains.

Massage helps to calm your baby down when he is unwell, keeps him happy and healthy.

Runny Nose

Massage the tip of your child’s big toe pads.

This helps your baby get rid of any symptoms of a cold or lingering sinus pain.


Teething can cause some discomfort to your baby like pain and mild fever.

Massage the top of your baby’s toes to soothe teething pain.

Upset Stomach

This happens often when your baby starts the transition from milk to solid foods.

Your baby’s digestive system may have a hard time adjusting to all the new

ingredients or some foods are not suitable for your baby.

For example, many babies are lactose or gluten intolerant.

Massage the centre portion of your baby’s foot can help with the spasms and pain.


Massage the point which is located four fingers below your baby’s big toe can help relieve indigestion, stomach aches and nausea.

Gas Pain

Indigestion may lead your baby to feel gassy.

Massage the point between your baby’s big toe and second toe can help relieve nausea, bloating, gassiness and vomiting.

See a paediatrician when your baby’s symptoms get worse.


Your baby may get constipated when you change texture and nutrients in his solid food. His stomach feels bloated, pain and discomfort.

Massage the heel of your baby’s foot can help relieve constipation and a sore stomach.

I hope massage will help your baby when he is unwell or uncomfortable.
