Safe and Effective Treatment for your Baby

 

If your baby cries a lot without any obvious cause, or is not soothed easily, seems to be in distress post feeds or is unhappy for several periods in the day or night, then it may be time to consider other possibilities to see what else might be going on.

 

Often childbirth can be very traumatic for both mum and baby.  A long or very quick birth, cords wrapped around baby’s neck are just a few examples of trauma.  

 

In many cases medical intervention does not always resolve or help settle your child. These therapies can make both a subtle and profound measurable difference to your baby’s health and to your own well-being and peace of mind.

 

NOTE: Your first point of call should always be to your paediatrician, GP or Nurse.  We can work alongside of any medical care you are currently undertaking without any interference.  In most cases a combination of factors will be the most beneficial and I will discuss this with you.

What is ‘Colic’?

Colic – is the term used for to cover any internal discomfort that your baby might be suffering from; wind or gas, bloated tummy, straining, passing wind without relief, bringing legs up and crying, appearing in pain, more crying.

Symptoms of colic are: wind, gas, constipation, muscular tension, indigestion, tense diaphragm, reflux and sleeping difficulties. These symptoms are not readily treated by your GP or your paediatrician. However, they can be treated by Baby Bowen and Emmett Techniques.

If you think your baby has colic, WebMD offers useful tips. See article here.

What is Reflux?

Colic symptoms are often mixed up with Reflux symptoms, in that both conditions cause a baby to be fretful and cranky and cry a lot. Reflux or more correctly Castro-esophageal reflux is: when acid from the stomach and contents coming in, cause an unpleasant mix and a ‘backrush’ that goes back up the eating tube / esophagus into the mouth, in the form of undigested or milky-like vomit.
