Has anyone been to a cranial osteopathist (is that right?) for either themselves or for their baby? If so - did it work? How much did you pay? I was thinking about going for myself - as I have felt 'out of alignment' for since the birth of my 16 week old DS and maybe for DS also - as he had quite a traumatic birth - (stuck in birth canal and forceps delivery) and sometimes cries for no reason. Any comments would be appreciated.
Yes do it! DD had really bad colic and was an incredibly fussy eater on the bottle until I went with her. Also went for myself as was having lots of pain in my c-section scar and they disappeared. I paid a bit more than mentioned here - 30 a session 26 for dd but in my opinion worth every penny
Definitely go for it! My ds was horribly unsettled until we took him for three treatments. He was like a new baby afterwards - happy, contented, feeding and sleeping better. I'm another convert!! Careful though, mine was £35-40
Thank you for all your comments. I have found a Cranial Os. near me and will be ringing her tomorrow. I will ask if she specialises in Babies and Post Natal. I am so excited about it. DS has never slept through the night - maybe this will help him. Will let you all know what happens.
Just thought I'd let you know. I have been to the osteopath with DS and myself. It was quite expensive as he needed three treatments and I needed five. I am not sure how it works but I feel a whole lot better and DS is sleeping much better now. Thanks for all your advice.
