Hiccups

Hiccups can be relieved quickly and effectively by pressing on various pressure points. Place your finger on the area between the top of the lip and the base of the nose. Hold pressure on this spot for about 30 seconds before releasing. This point is very effective, especially in babies.

You can also take your baby’s hand and squeeze on the surface of the fingernail of the pinky finger. Another pressure point to relieve hiccups is found between the belly button and the pubic bone. Press gently in the center of this line for a few seconds. Experiment with different points and see which one is most effective for your baby.

Boost immunity

The first two years of life are a critical period when the immune system and nervous system is maturing. Paying attention to strengthening your baby’s constitution at this time can help to minimize future illnesses.  A strong and healthy digestive tract is of prime importance.

As many of baby’s problems are related to digestion, an abdominal massage is the basis of good digestive health, which assists in creating strong immunity. Massage with medium pressure around the belly button in a counter-clockwise and then a clockwise direction. Use oil or cream to minimize the friction.
