Struggling with a teething baby? Try out these acupuncture points and see if it helps.
First point – effective for teething pain. Massage on the padded part of the palm near the thumbs for about 30 seconds at a time every two hours leading up to bedtime. This helps reduce the pain in gums and also reduces the volume of extra saliva, Second point – the knuckle of the big toe. Massage before, during and after bath in a clockwise motion. Sleep inducing point – one of the most effective acupressure points when a baby is inconsolable. If you have addressed all of the usual causes for wakefulness (hunger, diaper, warmth, gas), try this pressure point. In the middle (but about 1cm above eyebrows) use a soft stroking touch for anywhere between 10 and 20 seconds.
