Parenting after 35


Can I get a you tube video of you doing this technique?  

A nestie on my local board shared this technique and it works (or did for DS who was super gassy).  Sit her up facing you or away from you (doesn't matter).  With one hand supporting her front and one hand supporting her back (use your fingers to support her head), rotate her body in a clockwise or counter-clockwise motion (her legs are stationary) for about 10-12 rotations.  That usually gets up a burp or two and even if it doesn't, when I put him to my shoulder after doing that, I'd usually get a couple good burps right away. 

Can't quite seem to figure it out......

ETA - I think it's bc my son won't cooperate.  He gets all stiff and its impossible to twist him.  Poor kid.

Re: Pesky....

  • I'll see what I can do.  DS would do this too and just try the rotation with the legs stiffened and eventually they can't maintain the stiffness and will bend.  Part of the reason they stiffen out is the gas.  DS used to bend for part of it and then stiffen his legs to stand up for part of the rotation adn then back down -- like doing the wave at the stadium.  It was hilarious but still worked for him.
