There is no better food for your newborn than breast milk. Every year, new studies show nutrients or immunological factors only found in breast milk that cannot be duplicated in a lab. Breast milk was designed by nature and is ever-changing to help our species thrive.
Proper latching, sucking and the ability to feed easily on each side are normal functions that all babies can do. Difficulties with these can come from improper technique, but often are due to restricted motion in your baby’s body, typically a result of their in-utero position and birth. This can be easily resolved once their normal function is restored.
Here are some things you can do:
- Massage neck and head
- Try different nursing positions
- Chiropractic and cranial adjustments help restore the normal motion and function of your baby’s body.
