about taking my dd to see a cranial osteopath.

I did it on Monday. It was great, she relaxed completely in my arms and I could feel the difference in her straight away.

In the car she fell asleep without twisting her head violently to one side.

That evening I put her to bed IN HER COT shock, lying flat. She snuggled round and went to sleep. For two hours. That is the first time ever she has done this, in nine months of life.

Yesterday I went out on my own with some friends. Dd woke up, but fell asleep on dh, she has never ever fallen asleep on anyone but me before, and then only when I was feeding her.

The osteopath said she had never really learned to relax, and that she had a tension headache.

It is a miracle smile Thank you so much, before talking to you I thought that there would be no point taking her as she was born by section.

That's great. Its even more important to take babies born by section to cranial osteopaths because they don't get to go down the birth canal which helps their heads get over the stress of being engaged. Or whatever, you get what I mean.

I just didn't realise that and I am SO glad someone pointed it out to me.

No one can believe the difference kin her.

She fell asleep on the sofa today shock

It's lovely to read someone who has followed advice and reported back. Perhaps MNHQ should have a Thanks sections to MNers who have given great advice!

My RL friend, MN lurker has just phoned to tell me about this thread.

Hi all and CarGirl. When I read stuff like this I see the real value of mumsnet.

seriously I think every maternity unit should have CO they can make such a huge difference. Also your experience of being a Mum is hugely different if you have a crying, "uptight" (can't think of the right word) baby to one that is chilled and will sleep easily.

Oh I'm glad someone phoned you up.

It is true, I am so much more relaxed already.
You are a very popular person in our house grin
