Gently Touch These Points On A Baby's Foot And They Will Immediately Stop Crying

RealClear Contributor


Babies are the cutest form of a human and it is probably safe to assume that everyone loves them. But babies tend to cry a lot and that can sometimes not be as cute.

And for most new parents, soothing a crying baby isn't always very easy.... that is, if you don't know what to do.

Finding the right technique to soothe a crying baby isn't always easy - however, this trick is one that is both simple and effective. Your child's feet are not only adorable and perfect in every way, but they are also the key to soothing those inconsolable tears.

Reflexology is the ability to relieve pain, promote organ function, and maintain overall body health by applying pressure to various points on the feet, hands, or ears. By simply massaging different spots on those tiny tot's tootsies, you can comfort your child, cease the tears, and maintain your sanity!

Got Teeth?

If your little one is struggling with teething or ear infection pain, give the tips of their "little piggies" a gentle rub.

Sneezing And Wheezing

Is your child battling a cold and/or cough? Try massaging the the space underneath the toes (the balls of their feet) in a circular motion.

Tame The Tummy

The arch of the foot is directly correlated to the abdomen, and can certainly soothe stomach struggles! If your baby is suffering from constipation, bloating, or gassiness, put a little pressure on the arch of their feet, while also giving a soft rub.

Growing Up Too Fast

Unfortunately pelvic and hip pain can often accompany the growth spurts of little ones - if this is the case, give their heels a nice massage.

Soothe The Sinuses

If your baby is experiencing a runny nose or sinus related issues, try applying pressure to the center of his/her toes. This will not heal the underlying problem, but it will certainly help to soothe the symptoms!

Watch the "sadness soothing" in action!
