  • When my daughter had belly aches, probably due to being constipated, I rubbed in a circle around her belly button. Slow, gentle massaging rubs. I think I rubbed both ways.
    Have you tried giving extra water or prunes or prune juice mixed with water? These tend to help also.

  • lay baby on his/her back and push both legs up bending the kness slowly and that will help sooth their tummy...never rub the tummy it will only irritate it...
