In the video the nurse explains that the ‘polishingmotion does absolutely nothing and that parents should create some movement with their babies digestion.

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 tummies 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 tummies and that then is painful.

A lot of people will talk about bicycle legs, bringing the legs up but if they are in discomfort that can be helpful.
