Are you a new parent struggling with a colicky baby? Does it feel like your little one is constantly crying, arching their back, or having difficulty sleeping and soothing? Or maybe you and your baby have a hard time with breast feeding and you've tried all the tips, maybe even hired a lactation consultant with limited success. Or perhaps yours is the new baby that can't be put down and needs constant holding, bouncing or rocking otherwise they wail uncontrollably. Maybe your child is having difficulty with rolling over, sitting up or hasn't started crawling or walking yet?
If any of these describe your baby, don't worry, you're not alone - and these are the babies (and parents) that we help everyday in our clinic!
Did you know ... a stressful pregnancy and/or birth can lead to subluxation, causing your baby's nervous system to remain stuck in a sustained fight-or-flight state. Because birth trauma primarily affects the brainstem area, this interference can affect the Vagus Nerve, a crucial component of the “rest, relax, and digest” functions of the body.
So, if your baby is struggling it could be because of a condition called dysautonomia, which means the body’s autonomic systems, like feeding, digesting, moving, and breathing, aren’t coordinated properly. The issue stems from problems in the nervous system, disrupting the way the body handles digestion and other functions.
At Advanced Vitality, we provide safe and gentle adjustments for your baby that help activate and stimulate their Vagus Nerve and the parasympathetic “rest, relax, and digest” functions. This can make a significant difference for your baby's struggles.
If you’ve tried numerous solutions without success, don’t lose hope! Neurologically-Focused Pediatric Chiropractic may be the answer you’ve been searching for. Now that you’ve identified the true root cause of your child’s stress and discomfort, it’s time to start helping them achieve better sleep, enhanced digestion, and developmental progress.
So what are your next steps? Education is where we like to start! As Maya Angelou said: "Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better." We want to help you 'know better' and that's why we invite you (and any other mom friends you have) to join us for our FREE ONLINE "Beautiful Babies" workshop.
In this workshop, Dr. Tara Sutton will teach you about your baby's nervous system and how it may be related to so many common infant and toddler challenges. She will give you the guidance and encouragement you need to help your child with safe and drug-free options, exercises, tips & tricks. So if you're ready, click the button below to get signed up and we will see you at the end of the month!
