Baby Feeding and Digestion Issues in Fulham at Fulham Osteopaths

Common Causes Of Baby Feeding Issues

Many babies struggle with feeding issues characterised by wind, reflux and discomfort. The main causes include:
pain
Baby neck and throat tension leading to difficulty latching and swallowing air
pain
Irritation of the nerves to the tummy so baby’s natural rhythm is disturbed
pain
Baby stress and discomfort after birth which disturbs digestion

Baby Digestion Issues Explained In Plain English

No two babies are the same, but often they let us know by crying when things are not right. They have collicky pain, tummy tension, and perhaps disturbed bowel movements.

Sometimes with care and time things improve, but more often the problem doesn’t get 100% better and feels stuck, with an intuitive feeling that things aren’t right.

So what causes these problems?

Baby Wind

Your baby’s digestion should work invisibly without cause for concern.

Sometimes, if baby’s system is upset the digestion process is not strong enough to break down all the milk, and gut bacteria produce gas, or the baby swallows air which causes bloating. In our experience with hundreds of small babies, after the stress of birth the baby needs gentle relaxing treatment to calm down their system and strengthen the digestion.

Things settle down, and everybody gets a better nights sleep!

Baby Reflux

Spitting up food can be part of a baby and mother learning to feed, and a little trouble usually quickly settles down. If it carries on it can be distressing for the mother, and baby may not gain weight as they should.

Tension in the baby's tummy can stop the natural rhythms of the digestion to some extent. Gentle Osteopathy can relax the Baby digestion, calm the nerves from the neck to the tummy, and ease away stresses and strains baby may feel after the birth.

We treat the baby’s body gently to relax and ease away things that may disturb them, so they are calmer, feed better and sleep better.

Baby Digestion & Tummy Tension

Often not properly diagnosed, this can lead to baby crying, and a vague sense that everything is not right. We specialise in these collicky presentations, and will clearly explain to you our findings and recommendations, and whether Osteopathy can help your baby. We always work with your Paediatrician to make sure baby care is safe and effective.

How does an Osteopath treat Baby Digestion?

We have specialised in treating mother and the new born baby for over thirty years. Our Osteopaths working under Melinda, Senior Team Lead, bring a wealth of experience and expertise, and we have helped many thousands of Babies and their Parents get the best start in life. Gentle, relaxing Osteopathy for baby is a safe and effective solution for the vast majority of these cases, which just need the system relaxing and balancing to take away any uneven strains. We are trained to quickly diagnose the problem, with our Osteopaths having special Paediatric Training and in house training with Melinda. Treatment is very quiet and gentle to relax baby, calm their system, and recover normal head shape.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the causes of the problems, frequently people find that related issues also show rapid improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected. For example, Helping baby digestion and feeding means that mum and dad get a better nights sleep, and performance at work and sport improves.

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

We went to see Katherine for our 4 month baby who was very agitated during the nights. Katherine was very thorough in her investigation, explaining in details what she was doing. She was extremely kind and gentle with our baby. The sessions tremendously improved our boy's sleep. Plus she's super friendly so it's always nice as parents to go and see her! We cannot recommend her enough, thanks Katherine!

I’ve been seeing Constantino (Tino) for my treatment, he’s helped me very much. He’s very good & professional at what he does. I previously had a lot of problems with my neck, stiffness and pain, which was affecting my daily life. After a few sessions the pain has gone away. I’m able to do the things I enjoy again. Tino is a very good Osteopath, the best around in my experience.

I had back pain in the latter stages of my pregnancy and Verena used a combination of osteo treatment and suggested exercises to realign my hips and loosen my back in order to alleviate the pain. I was impressed of her knowledge of all things pregnancy related and felt in very safe, capable hands. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Verena for about a month now and I am very happy with both the service and results, my only regret is i wish i had came to see her sooner!I feel every session is always informative, detailed and the treatment is always in depth. It has really speeded up my sports injury so that i can get back to it.I will be continuing to visit frequently for a general MOT and could not recommend the clinic and Verana enough.

I visited Verena for my back pain, tension, neck pain in my body due to having a new baby who had a feeding and sleeping problem. Her amazing hands released the pain and tension in my body just after 2 sessions, she also recommend some exercise for me to do at home, that exercise really helps my body. Thanks a lot Verena, looking forward to my session tomorrow.

We visited Verena for our 4 month baby sleep problem and tongue tie. After the first session, our baby relaxed a lot and had a great sleep for the next couple of days. Verena’s magical hands have released all the tension from our baby and our baby is much happier when breastfeeding. Looking forward to our 3rd session tomorrow morning. It really changed our life in a better way, thanks a lot, and highly recommended.

Went to see Giulia with a terrible back, shoulder and neck pain. She sorted me out and other long term issues. I’m painless, taller and straighter! Really happy I met her.

Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!

Excellent service and very professional. I was in a lot of back pain and Tino fixed it after just the first appointment! He also recommended some great exercises to prevent it happening again - I would highly recommend.
