Colic, tummy troubles & sleep
Inconsolable crying is your baby’s cry for help. They are telling you something is seriously wrong. Or the only remedy seems to be rocking your baby in your arms all night. When your baby is distressed, everyone in your home is distressed.
Before taking our son, Miakoda, to craniosacral therapy he was not sleeping at night. He was screaming inconsolably. On the night of our first session with Catherine, he slept soundly for the first time in weeks, waking only to nurse and return to sleep.

Lukas began having reflux and very restless crying at two weeks old. In the evenings he was in a lot of pain. Lukas was only having one bowel movement a week then. With Catherine and other practitioners’ help, we were able to sort out several problems for Lukas, who is now happy and healthy.
Colic can have multiple causes and effects. It’s heartbreaking for parents when you’ve tried everything possible, and your baby is still crying. Get help sorting out the puzzle of colic, tummy troubles and sleep for your unhappy baby.
Colic is a cry for help
Birth is intense for babies. Compression forces may create muscle and nerve restrictions that disrupt a baby’s ability to settle into calm within themselves. She may be totally dependent on your body to be able to relax. He may be rigid with tension. Or they may cry until utterly exhausted.
Spitting up and reflux
Does your baby often spit up? How much? Right after a feed or much later? Does your baby become upset? Is he very fussy and arching?
Your baby may squirm and cry from gas if he swallows a lot of air due to poor latch, or has tight fascia, or has food sensitivities from mother’s diet. You can get help sorting it all out.
Infrequent bowel movements?
Generally breastfed babies have at least one bowel movement a day. Going for days without a bowel movement may mean he has internal restrictions. Is your baby rigid and tight in his belly or legs?
Sleep – Help your baby – and yourself
If your baby is not sleeping well, then you are not sleeping either. When you’re exhausted and depleted, it’s so much harder to take care of everyone. All the babies on this page had improved sleep after therapy! Their stories bring hope.
