30 Gentle Touch Therapies to Help a Crying Baby

Nasal congestion

Blockage of the nasal passages gets caused by inflamed blood vessels in the lining of the membranes. Swelling obstructs free air flow from and puts pressure on the sinuses. Nasal congestion is common in babies and affects their eating, sleeping and even sucking on their pacifiers.

For babies experiencing nasal congestion, the best place to apply pressure is the middle area under each toe. The nose reflexology point is found outside the edge of the big toe along the line where the sole meets the skin. Gentle massage of this area can reduce soreness.
