My 4 months old baby has a lot of wind in your tummy and poo every 2-3 days. I have been giving her probiotics. Will paediatric tuina help?

4 months old is a little too young for paediatric tuina. We would usually recommend it done for children above 6 months old. However, it is still a case by case basis, so you can still bring the child down for a consultation to see if the child is suitable for paediatric tuina. You may also want to bring your baby to a paediatric doctor to evaluate her overall condition first, as passing motion every 2-3 days can be normal in certain situation, so it is important to take a look at the overall condition before taking any measure or doing any treatment.
