Birth is one of the most stressful events of our lives, babies are subjected to enormous forces during uterus contractions.  The baby is forced down the birth canal and has to turn and twist as it squeezes through the bony pelvis on its short and potentially stressful journey.

The babies head has the remarkable ability to absorb these stresses in a normal delivery.  In order to reduce the size of the head, the soft bones of the skull overlap, bend and warp as the baby descends.  Many babies are born with odd shaped heads as a result and retained moulding patterns can be evident.  Over the first few days the head should begin to lose its extreme moulding shape.

Crying Irritable Baby  -  The baby may be uncomfortable with a constant feeling of pressure in the head made worse when lying down.  Needs to be rocked to sleep and prefers to be carried seeking constant attention.

Feeding Difficulties  -  The baby takes a long time to feed and one feed merges into the next.  They may be a "windy feeder". 

Sickness and trapped wind  -  Bringing up milk between feeds, bouts of prolonged crying due to trapped wind which is often worse in the evening are common symptoms.

Sleep Disturbance -  The baby sleeps for only short periods and may sleep little (day or night) waking at the slightest noise. 

As websites are covered by advertising standards we cannot advertise that cranial osteopathy is an effective treatment for the above symptoms as there is no accepted medical evidence to support it.

The fact is however that most of our business relating to treatments of babies and infants is derived from personal recommendations from parents that have visited us with their children.
