If your baby suffers with colic or constipation, baby massage can be a really effective way of naturally treating it. The stimulation that comes from the different strokes can help to soothe these issues, meaning a happier baby and, in turn, a happier mummy!
There are a few specific strokes that are particularly helpful for treating colic and constipation, and in this second video of our Baby Massage Course, expert Gayle Berry is here to show you step by step how to do them.
Make sure you’ve watched part one of the Baby Massage course before you dive into this one, as it gives you an overview of everything you need to know before you get started. You can watch part one right here.
And for the next video in the course make sure to check back to this page next week.
