I worked with Kathleen (not her real name) throughout her pregnancy, the birth of her daughter and now
with her and her daughter.  There have been many examples of how EFT is beneficial to both mother and
child. Here are a couple examples with Kathleen and her daughter and one about another baby and mother.

Adjusting Newborns’ Sleeping Patterns with EFT

Kathleen’s newborn baby was sleeping beautifully during the day, but waking during the night.  For a new
mom this can be difficult.  We decided to do EFT for her with the intention of shifting her sleeping pattern.  
We started tapping that she would adjust quickly and easily to sleeping at night. We tapped on her
increasing her 2 hour sleeping time to 3 hours within a few days, then to 4 hours within a few weeks.  We
tapped that she was doing so to get into rhythm with her mom, so her mom would feel refreshed and take
care of her better.  Because it is the normal sleeping pattern for most adults, as she grew she could go for
longer periods of time without feeding and still know that there was always enough milk and mommy was
always there for her.

Her sleeping patterns did switch quite quickly.  They shifted to one wake-up feeding at night giving
Kathleen a fairly good amount of rest each night without multiple disturbances.  It helped them both create a
lovely rhythm.

EFT helps Baby with Gas and Indigestion

When Kathleen’s daughter was about 3 weeks old, she would be upset because she needed to burp or pass
gas but couldn’t.  She was restless, uncomfortable and somewhat colicky.  We tapped for her.  I said things
my body knows how to make the enzymes it needs to digest my food better; I know how to pass gas, in either
direction.  I know how to drink milk without sucking in so much air so I have less gas, there is no rush because
there is always enough milk.  I digest everything with ease
, and so on.  From then on she has been very good
at passing gas, little to no stomach problems and a great eater.

EFT clears Gas, Indigestion, and Fear

Another friend’s baby was colicky.  At two weeks he had parasites.  He was given meds to take care of it, but
they upset his stomach.  He was also very afraid.  He only wanted to be with his mother.  He would cry when
anyone else held him.  By the way, he was a C-section baby.

When I worked with him he was 7 weeks old.  The baby was lying on the bed, his mother and I sat on the
edge of it, while I tapped.  I did basically the same as with my friend’s daughter.  He can digest well.  He
doesn’t have to have parasites.  He knows how to pass gas.  His body makes the enzymes he needs to
digest well.  He is loved.  He can be calm.  He is safe no matter who has him.  His parents love him.  And

The mother told me that by midday the next day, her son was able to pass gas, was calm, and from then on
started going to other people without being afraid.

EFT clears Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) in Mother and Child

Kathleen called me one evening concerned because earlier that day her daughter had the beginning signs
of conjunctivitis.  She was almost 2 months old at the time.

Kathleen noticed some dry gunk in her daughter’s eye, later it got red, and started watering.  She tapped for
her during the day and it did improve but didn’t disappear so she asked me for some help.  We did
surrogate tapping together for the child over the phone on the typical symptoms of conjunctivitis.  It did
appear to get better.

Since Kathleen has had bouts of conjunctivitis and was feeling terrible that she may be passing this to her
daughter.  In fact she had had a bout of conjunctivitis 2 weeks prior.  I asked Kathleen what was going on for
her that she didn’t want to see.

She was frustrated and angry with the child’s father, and how she felt about the situation.  She was resistant
to talking to him about it.  Essentially, there were things she didn’t want to see about her partner.  After we
tapped through her issues about it, she looked back at her daughter and to our delight her eye was better.  

We continued to tap but this time about finding solutions.  We tapped that she has clarity and receives clear
signs.  About 5 minutes after we tapped for clear signs, her partner showed up.  We ended the tapping
session, and she was able to explain “clearly” her position to her partner.  By morning her daughter’s
conjunctivitis was gone.

If you are working with children pay attention to the child’s symptoms and/or issues.  Also pay attention to
the circumstances around them.  This may include issues the parents have.
