Did you know that osteopathic treatment may be able to help sleeping and behavioral issues in babies and kids?
Have you recently been on a flight , even a short, 1 hour domestic flight and your little one has stopped sleeping properly?
'Has your little one recently had a growth spurt or a fever?'
Are they more cranky or tearful than usual or just 'not themselves' and you have no idea why?
Over the sixteen years I have been treating babies and children, I have had Mums bring their little ones to me over and over for the above reasons and have experienced it in my own little girl. Time and time again there have been areas of tightness or irritation in their bodies, which, once treated , have led to a happier, calmer bub or toddler, and improved sleep. As an adult, you can understand if you are in pain or discomfort, or simply 'don't feel right' and are able to explain this clearly to others. Babies and children cannot do that, so we need to follow their cues and, as parents trust our instincts that they may need a little extra help.
I still remember treating my bub at 2am one morning as she had been struggling with teething for hours and the baby Panadol hadn't really helped. It settled her for the rest of the night. It has also reached the stage, now she is nearly six, that my husband (who isn't an osteopath), will say ' Sharon, I have no idea what's wrong with Asha at the moment, PLEASE will you give her a treatment ', or she will ask me herself!
Don't struggle, trust your gut and get them checked. If you're unsure, CALL me for a chat on 0414 529203.
