Intestinal problems, flatulence or constipation: If your baby is tormented by stomach pains, you can simply use the elbow-knee grip. In this way you support your child’s digestion and bowel movements.
This is how the elbow-knee grip works
- Lay your baby on your back.
- Bring the baby’s right elbow and left knee towards each other as if they are touching.
- Do the same with the opposite elbow and knee: bring the left elbow and right knee towards each other.
- Alternate this a few times until your baby is relieved.
A detailed explanation of the grip technique can be found here.
