All the twisting and rotating and general stuckness can lead to straining and tightening of the fascia, which is a thin but strong layer that lies on top of (superficial) to the muscles and protects our entire body - from the muscles to all the nerves and organs below them, as well as the muscles themselves. All this tightness can present as tongue, lip, cheeks ties (which can affect feeding, latch, reflux, colic, and more) or tightness of the body (ie. torticollis) and can pull bones out of alignment and compress nerves, which can lead to other complications like pain, stiffness, discomfort and more.
Babies are meant to be snuggly and pretty loose, almost melting into you when being held....but often times this is not the case. Body tightness can affect a variety of things like latch, posture while feeding, reflux, colic, constipation, torticollis, plagiocephaly (or flat head syndroms), difficulty with tummy time and may also delay baby's ability to move and meet their developmental milestones such as rolling, crawling, getting into a sitting position and eventually standing and walking.
Getting in early is key and can make profound changes, leading to a happier, more relaxed and calm baby.
The Holistic Baby Development mini course will show you how to check your baby's body, joints, and muscles, to make sure they are all moving as they should be. You will be guided through various exercises and movements to gently stretch baby out so that baby can work out any kinks they may have that might be causing pain or discomfort.
