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

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
