When I did a baby massage course with dd we were taught how to rub their tummies in a circular movement to help with the stool passing through the colon (sorry if that's tmi!!). However, I can't remember if it was clockwise or anti clockwise. We were taught never to rub in the wrong direction as this could encourage things to go the wrong way (!).
Poor thing keeps screaming as if she's passing a brick and then it's only the tiniest of poos. It's because she's not drinking enough...
No, up right side of her tummy and down left side of her tummy.
We used to 'write' on baby tummy 'I L U', except L and U were upside down - do although the I stroke broke the rule, the L and the U are the right way round for the rule?!
thank you! I was thinking my right - thank you for setting me right! Have just got home from picking up ds so will see if she will let me give her a tummy rub (she still keeps crying without passing anything).
