Unsettled Babies and Chiropractic
Birth can be a traumatic experience at the best of times. This can lead to stress and tension being held onto by the baby. Our bodies are made to move and in the first few days of life that movement of a babies’ body helps tell the brain what is going on in the world around them. Parenting is hard enough with a new born without having the worry and added stress of them being unhappy and unsettled.
Have you have had a rough birth or a C-section ? If your baby is finding it hard to sleep or settle then consider calling Dr Nicole Atkinson, Chiropractor at Be Balanced Chiropractic. Nicole works with babies and their parents to help children’s bodies function as best. Chiropractors remove the stress and tension with gentle adjustments. Chiropractic for babies is gentle and safe. The pressure used is no more than you would comfortable tough your eyelid with. When babies hold too much tension in their neck, spine or pelvis it can lead to them feeling uncomfortable which can lead to them being unsettled, irritable, fussy or having poor sleep.
Common signs that your baby may benefit from seeing a chiropractor:
- Having a ‘strong’ neck from birth
- Feeling tense or heavy
- Hard to change nappy
- Difficulty feeding
- Being unsettled
