EFT (Emotional Release Technique) is like acupuncture without needles. It works by stimulating the flow of energy through the body. There is little medical evidence for the effectiveness of EFT, but the results appear to be quite striking. Many claim to have a complete cure for ailments that traditional remedies cannot.

Whether you believe in EFT or not, the treatment is non-invasive and has no known side effects. Therefore, it is a very safe treatment for babies. Obviously, if a baby is sick or distressed, medical advice should be sought. This treatment is only recommended as a way to comfort healthy children, not as a substitute for proper medical care.

There has been some success in treating colic or wind pain. There are also stories of success in getting newborn babies into regular sleep patterns for short periods of time. Distressed newborns have responded to medical staff using EFT as well as traditional methods.

Babies may be afraid of separation or lack of milk. There may be a fear of pain or illness, which is distressing for the baby. If these fears are addressed when tapping, they appear to ease the baby. When patting the newborn, use a very gentle touch. Banging with the mother is also a good idea because the bond between the baby and the mother is still so strong that any discomfort or discomfort from the mother can be transferred to the baby.

Some babies don’t like being tapped, but respond well to gentle circular rubs. If the baby doesn’t want to be touched anywhere, just skip the point and move on to the next one. EFT is very effective in relieving the discomfort of teething in babies. It’s less invasive than pain medication, and babies seem to sleep better without waking up in pain when the medication wears off at night.
