    Well i've just got back from seeing a cranial osteopath who treats babies who are difficult to settle, as i've found Poppy finds it really hard to wind down and sleep, plus she was ventouse after a stressful pregnancy and delivery.

    One of the exercises i have to do with her is holding her gently by her legs and holding her upside down for 1 minute, gently moving her up and down. It apparently stretches her spine and relieves tension in her neck and scull.

    Poppy loved it! Even though i was terrified i'd drop her. And GUESS WHAT! Just got home and put her down for a nap in her bed. AND SHE'S GONE TO SLEEP NO TROUBLE!!!! I've snuck downstairs for a quick coffee and a bit of internet, and can't quite believe she's napping in her bed.

    Wonder if it's a coincidence? Please let it not be!!

    My friend had to go to a cranial osteopath for her LOs reflux and found it worked absolute wonders. :)

    Apparently a cranial osteopath really helped my friend's baby with his croup - I've kept his card just in case.

    we were told to do this with Oscar too - we do and he likes it too but haven't had the dramatic results you have had. It's so funny to see him smiling all upside down. cracks me up.

    We took Phoebe to her first session this week and we are already noticing positive changes in her I would definitely recommend it.
