Quoting M walls:" I've heard of using pressure points but never tried it"I've had a foot massage from DH and a little pressure in the right spots make my feet feel so much better but idk about it affecting other body parts. i obviously wouldn't put much pressure.
Quoting CottonCandyKiller:" but i found this interesting. DD is asleep right now but i'm so gonna try this tomo when i see her teeth bothering her."
Quoting Dean Winchester:" im so glad you posted this.. i just remember when DD was sick or whiney i would just rub her feet.. ... [snip!] ... asleep. i never knew there was actually meaning behind it, i just did it because i like it. and now i know why it helped lol"DH does it to DD sometimes but he just rubs up and down the bottom surface of her foot and she goes right to sleep. i'm apparently not allowed to put her to bed. she just screams her head of if i even try. i'd say 95% of the time. the techniques that DH uses, i seem to do all wrong- swaddling included. where as i've seen DH get her from get her from completely awake to completely asleep in 15 sec flat!
Quoting ~Raylan's Mama~:" When my son doesn't feel good I rub his feet...you don't need to apply pressure at all. When we visited ... [snip!] ... sick. He had a fever, runny nose, cough...you could tell he was miserable and the only thing that helped was rubbing his feet."sounds like DD, though we've been managing to keep her fever down this past wk...
