2. Exercise

  • Keep your infant on his/her back. Hold his/her legs in a ½ bent position. Gently move baby’s legs in such a way, as if s/he paddling a bicycle. Do it at a steady pace. Leg bicycling is a great fun for your child and loosens up the intestines.
  • Carry your newborn baby around in a squat position. Elevate his/her little legs in a way that s/he is squatting on your forearm like a bunny or frog. It will exert a little pressure on the kid’s rectum and help him/her to defecate.
