  • Omg! This worked. My 4 month poops everyday, but hadn’t pooped since 2 days, I was watching this and applying it to my baby. He just pooped. Thank you so much����

  • My 5 month old had colic and acupuncture really helped him. Thanks for posting this video to spread the word, so others may know acupuncture is a safe effective alternative to expensive prescription medications which have unfortunate side effects.

  • When my daughter was an infant she was colicky and cried just about all the time. No amount of gas drops or other natural or medical remedies seemed to help. I ordered Baby Magic Tea on amazon and it was magic! I gave half Cup of it and she was soothed instantly. Every one’s baby is different and this may not work for yours, but it certainly did for mine. In fact I just ordered another one for my cousin’s new baby. They are having a similar problem with him. Thanks secretoftea(dot)om

  • “Colic
    1-teaspoon juice of mint (phudina) given with a small quantity of powdered black pepper and honey relieves colic.
    Founded these article from here its is just amazing
    https://www.pediatriconcall.com/articles/alternative-medicine/colic/colic#1896

  • After a few minutes of massaging the heel and lightly tapping the spots on his hand I hear him fart loudly a couple of times in his sleep

  • What a cute little girl. You doing that on your daughter really shows that you mean it’s absolutley for the best and that it doesn’t hurt. Good video:)

  • Hi baby last night poop come very hard and Im going crazy on social media and I found you and tried all of them on baby. She enjoy all of them know just going to wait.

  • Wow this worked. My 3 week old baby has been struggling to poop for the past 1 week. He was in so much pain straining and crying so much. Tried this and we had 2 full diapers and a smiling baby. So grateful, thank you so much

  • I always rely on “babies’ magic tea” by ecretsoftea.com. Nothing seen working better than this,You can give him even better things to cope with colic like “babies’ magic tea” is herbal and mended especially for such issues, you can add it to his formula as well.

  • “Babies colic tea” by secretsoftea.com is the finest source to relieve gas and colic issues in babies. I got really impressed with the results it brought for my baby to cure his colic. It’s herbal so nothing to worry about using this formula with babies. It has NO sugar, No Alcohol, No artificial flavors.

  • Since two week, my two years old son gradually suffered with colic, I was tried different home based remedies some of them worked but temporarily. Finally I found “babies magic tea” which strongly affected and my son sleep well every night.

  • @axxle000 I can understand why you’d feel like that acupuncture does sometimes seem to defy accepted logic. But if you’re interested in educating yourself further on the topic, I’d suggest googling ‘acupuncture MRI’ for scholarly articles on brain responses related to traditional indications for acupuncture points. Fascinating stuff.

  • Hi thank you so much great video!
    Quick question how long do I massage the areas for? Can I do all of them or just. Thank you in advance

  • I have been really struggling with rough hours due to my baby’s colic unless I found an herbal formula “babies magic tea” by secretsoftea.com. this tea is a simple blend of herbs as far as Iearned about the tea but has unbelievable outcomes to cure the colic.

  • Shame she didn’t know about making a tea using fennel. I would bet the baby would have needed no more than one ounce to get rid of that gas.

  • Daughter didnt poop in 9 days. I tried this for two sessions in the morning. I tapped was able to do all the triggers except she didnt like the under her knee. I did each trigger on one side for about 2-3 mins each. I did the massage on her heels a bit longer. The first time nothing really happened at all. the 2nd time I waited for her to be asleep and I did the tapping on her finger and hand for about 5-10 minutes each and she farted a couple times.
    No poop until later that day she did poop. But I also did stomach massages based on another video and we did warm cotton balls on her anus per the doctor.
    So I am not sure which one worked, Next time (hopefully not) I will try one exclusively and see which does the trick.

  • For those who breast feed express the foremilk off each breast for 1-2 mins before putting your baby on the breast to feed. This is the part of the milk in each breast that contains the highest amount of sugars, which when passing through the digestive system, creates gases and can cause spasming of the colon. If you express this before putting your child on each breast it will significantly reduce the potential to cause colic (spasming of the colon). If you have ever experienced the pain of a spasming calf muscle and now transfer that same pain into the colon, although it is not damaging, it is however excruciating pain and avoidable. Express the foremilk!!!! Non of the GPs or children’s specialists had any advice other than “your baby is really healthy and shows no sign of anything wrong. You’re doing really well, so it will go away in time, don’t worry.” It was a trained nurse at a Karitane Mothercraft centre in Australia that told me what to do and my daughter slept peacefully form that day on.

  • Thank you so much!!! God is so good!!! ����������������. These methods worked immediately! Thanks so much for your help. My baby pooped big twice in less than 5 minutes!

  • j, dr k udaya sankar, am the innovator of infantile colic treatment in the world.my treatment is based on diet only. mothers should avoid 10 small ‘c’ s cows milk, chicken, coffee, chacolate, chicken egg, caubage, cauliflower, citrus fruits, cigarettes & chepalu ( fish) in the first three monhs infants life to treat big C ‘ ( COLIC).along with pre pro biotics & simethicone.

M y treatment stood first in world..Millions of doctors hav been following my treatment & millions of infants mothers have been sleeping well. you can check up in world journal of medical sciences journal.Dr k udaya sankar contributor to morethan 100 international medical text books.

  • @axxle000 In the UK, acupuncturists are required to undergo 3 years of full-time, degree-standard training, which includes Western anatomy and physiology. We also study traditional Chinese ideas. Over thousands of years of refining, correlations between specific points on the body and physiological functions have been recorded and honed into a complete and often powerful medical system. Not all of these effects can be explained in scientific terms as yet, but I believe one day they will be.

  • My baby didn’t poop for 6 days,, and after trying this he poop,, now regularly from 2 days,, he have no constipation and clearing his tummy.. he is just 3 and half month old

  • Or you can try “Baby’s Magic Tea” as well. It’s very healthy and I tried it myself. My LO used to wake up screaming. There were many nights that I didn’t sleep for a single minute. A friend told me about this tea and I started giving it to my LO. It really works. But its up to you, if you want to try other things, you should. But it worked for me.

  • Please make it easier for your baby by giving him babies magic tea,
    Not only is going to help him with Colic & gas painful experience but also is going to help him sleep and therefore help you sleep.

  • STOP EATING DAIRY.
    It has been shown in 1978 study that mother eating dairy causes stomach pains in babies through breastfeeding.
    Simethicone has been shown to be inneffective in 1998, yet they continue to prescribe and sell it.
    Lookup dr. Michael Greger and colic for more information. This big pharma and agg bullshit has to stop.
    Avoid Pfizer: first they make you sick by selling arsenic compounds to farmers, then they sell you the drugs to treat their deseases.

  • Our baby girl hadn’t pooped in about 2 weeks. Tried your methods and within 2 hours she had relief. Thank you so much for the education and help!

  • So much thank you lady, my baby constipation problem solved with in few mins…. Only word comes to mind now ” Love you”.
    Gratitude and respect my dear Katrine.

  • @ricehq I’ve treated several babies for this distressing condition, and almost without exception their parents have reported that they have become calmer and happier afterwards. In some cases, these effects have been ongoing, and the condition has not returned. But don’t just take my word for it a high quality study was undertaken by the Dept. of Paediatrics at the Institute of Health in Stockholm, which reports similar findings (Google ‘Reinthal acupuncture colic’)

  • If your baby is not settling down due to colic, try babies magic tea. It helped me great by soothing my extremely fussy and colicky baby.

  • Omg I love this video!! My 2 month old baby girl that is breastfed was a bit constipated and would not settle for her afternoon nap today so after watching your video I started doing it straight away while watching and within seconds of me doing all the acupressure and reflexology points waah laah she managed to have a big poop, now after her change she’s sound asleep:) Thank you so much Katrine this has helped us both so much <3

  • Thank you so much for you video it’s a big help for me and for my 1month old baby.she did not poop for almost 2 days and she’s very irritated.when i do the massage as what i saw in this video.a few minutes she poop a lot.❤️❤️❤️������big thumbs up.looking forward for more videos.

  • Thanks for the question. Generally speaking they don’t seem to notice much, or at all. Sometimes there are tears, but I can only remember one occasion with more than a minor outburst. Occasionally, as in this video, they even seem to enjoy it! Maybe my daughter is just a bit strange?!..

  • I had my baby at 28 week and he is still in NICU. he hadn’t poop for a day. But he had been grunting and uncomfortable longer. I asked the nurses what can I do? They said rub his belly clock wise and down…nothing. did this 5 minutes later a small to medium BM!!! PRAISE THE LORD!!! I prayed for him to help him and he brought me here. I have done it again cause i know more is in there. Tears for this…I never knew how joyful I could be over a dirty diaper…thanks hun for making this video.

  • How long should I wait to move to the next point? For example if I’m tapping her finger, how long should I do that for before trying the next point?

  • hey kat…how long do we have yo do this..my 18 month son hasn’t pooped in four days…tried this but not working…how long should j do thus
