Chest congestion is something that is common to be happening to babies. Although it is typically considered as harmless, it still can be uncomfortable for babies. However, you can help relieve their chest congestion with baby massage!
If you are currently feeling anxious- we get it, especially for new moms. You might be wondering why babies are susceptible to congestion, and there are quite a number of reasons for it! First, your baby spent 9 months submerged in amniotic fluid. After delivery, there can be residual amounts of fluid in their sinuses and chest, which can make them a little congested. Second, your baby has smaller airways compared to us adults, so breathing can be a workout for them. It’s normal for them to sound like they are having a hard time breathing regularly.
However, fret not! In the video below, Aunty June demonstrates using ‘Open Book’ and ‘Butterfly’ massage techniques that focus on the chest area. Now, why do you need to massage your baby’s chest? It’s because when your baby coughs, their chest gets constricted. By using the two massage techniques mentioned above, you can help relieve your baby’s airways.
Remember! Before massaging your baby, do your starting routine and check your surroundings. You can refer to the starting routine video here!
