Surely, parents always want their children to be healthy. Your baby is well and happy is paramount. Parents can spend hours ʙᴜʀᴘɪɴɢ their baby and trying to help them with uncomfortable ᴛʀᴀᴘᴘᴇᴅ ᴡɪɴᴅ. Well, this hack may just sort that ᴘᴀɪɴғᴜʟ problem forever. Recently, TikTok user and nanny who posts using the handle The Enchanted Nanny has uploaded a video showing an ingenious hack to help calm a newborn baby if they are ᴇxᴘᴇʀɪᴇɴᴄɪɴɢ ᴅɪɢᴇsᴛɪᴠᴇ ᴅɪsᴄᴏᴍғᴏʀᴛ.
Instead of ‘ᴘᴏʟɪsʜɪɴɢ’ your babies ᴛᴜᴍᴍʏ or ʀᴜʙʙɪɴɢ it in a circular motion, there is a better way to offer ʀᴇʟɪᴇғ. In the video the ɴᴜʀsᴇ explains that the ‘ᴘᴏʟɪsʜɪɴɢ’ motion does absolutely nothing and that parents should create some movement with their babies ᴅɪɢᴇsᴛɪᴏɴ. She explains as she demonstrates that you need to take a nice wide grip on babies middle and then slowly move them clockwise. Lucy said: “If ᴛᴜᴍᴍɪᴇs don’t get the chance for movement then the milk can move too slowly through there and then it can ferment and create wind in their ᴛᴜᴍᴍɪᴇs and that then is ᴘᴀɪɴғᴜʟ. A lot of people will talk about bicycle legs, bringing the legs up but if they are in discomfort that can be helpful. In the rest of the time you want to get as much space in the ᴛᴜᴍᴍʏ as possible because it gives everything a chance to move around. Lift him up and move him in a figure of 8,”
The helpful video got 2.6 million views with many observing her son’s calmness, as one saw: “Look at the ʀᴇʟɪᴇғ on his face and that baby looks so relaxed.” People took to the comments section to thank The Enchanted Nanny for her tips, with many mums wishing they had discovered the video months and even years before. One commenter said :”You can tell he’s enjoying it must be so relieving for them” . The Enchanted Nanny responded: “He’s like a new baby now! You should have ur own show!” said another viewer, “Serious! This would be revolutionary for both kids and parents.”
Another commenter shared: “This account will be a game change for me! Can’t wait to try this on my 3 month old.” While one person typed: “I wish I knew about this 9 months ago. Thanks for uploading this.” imilarly, another mum said: “I wish I knew all this, 5 weeks without a full night sleep.”
“God I needed this 9 years ago…” added another.
While another got envious, saying: “Honestly, that looks like it would feel good to me too.” Some even wanted to try it on their adult partners, as they said: “I’ll try with my 372 month old boyfriend.”
