Thread: Baby rubs her feet all the time

Baby rubs her feet all the time
DD has been rubbing her feet (like two feet fighting each other) all the time. I'm just wondering whether this is something every baby does or is it because she feels itchy from her eczema? Anyone have similar experience?

I work in the area of infant motor development and 'foot rubbing' is something most babies do....when lying on their backs they will rub their feet over each other.
However, if she is rubbing her feet raw then it might be itchy...otherwise I'm pretty sure it is just normal foot rubs.Natalie

My DS crosses his feet all the time. In the bath, in the car, playing. He rubs them a bit too but mainly crosses them. It is soooo cute.

My DD has excema and used to Rub her legs raw on anything she could, my pants, carpet, her bed. Basically we kept the area moisturised at all times and always covered. We found those pants with the feet in them to be the best. If she has an area of excema that is raw we put a bandage in it with lots of cream.Hugs to Zzagkema xoxox

my DS crosses his feet and plays but i wouldnt class it as rubbing. i hope she isnt itchy that would be annoying for her. good luck with it i guess its just trial and error. try some thing to relieve it and if she stops rubbing it may just be the answer.nice chatting with you,

My son did this when he was younger and I too thought he had itchy feet. Other mums in my mother's group experienced it as well so I didn't worry about it.Me - 29

My DS does this all the time... it kind of gives him an agitated look, as if something's annoying him (even tho it's not). My bub hasn't ever had a skin condition, so can't help there... but I'd have to agree with what a PP said, if she's rubbing herself raw then it might be itchy.
But if she's not itchy... then it's completely normal!! and if it's not normal then my bub has a problem tooMe - Dec '81
