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.

I took my baby to see Katherine to help with sleeping issues. She immediately noted areas of tightness causing him pain and after one session he was sleeping through the night. After four sessions he was a different baby, sleeping and eating batter leading to a much happier baby. I wish I had taken him earlier!

Andrew Cotton is such professional, experienced, gifted, caring and talented Osteopath. I am so lucky to have found him to resolve a neck issue which was giving me the most horrendous pain in my shoulder and migraines. I was in agony when I first arrived and a few sessions later, I am now pain free, have a much greater range of movement and able to turn my neck again! Such a brilliant result! Thank you Andrew for your talent.

We’ve had a really great experience with the treatment Melinda has given to our little boy with torticollis. She’s a very kind and professional individual and obviously good at what she does.

I first discovered Fulham Osteopaths as a sleep-deprived first time Mum - I did not know what osteopathy was before then! I am so grateful to have Fulham Osteopaths as part of my community - Melinda is so lovely (as are her staff!) and the practice exemplifies holistic care that is critically missing in many parts of our health system. Now my whole family receives care from the practice and every time, no matter the niggle (or emergency!) we receive excellent care throughout. Many thanks!!
