I don’t know if I can honestly say that every baby “needs” body work. But I will say without any doubt or hesitation, that every baby can benefit from body work. Many behaviors in babies that are considered “normal” can be helped with body work. Such as carseat screaming.
Both Ruby and Josiah screamed uncontrolably in the carseat. My mom and I used to call them both “The Car Seat Screamers.” Ruby was much older when I finally broke down and took her for the first time. On the way home, it was the first time she had ever been in the carseat and didn’t scream every breath. She actually slept the whole way home. From then on, she only cried if there was something wrong that was fixable (wet diaper, hungry, etc).
/*Josiah was the same way. But I was smarter with him. I actually took him when he was about a month old. He too stopped screaming immediately.
The difference with Ruby became even more apparent once we got home. Her palate was much lower! Her head was more round. My husband came home that night and was astounded at how different she looked!
The best part, was that he could hold her without her screaming the entire time! He had never been able to hold Ruby without her crying. No one could, except me.
This is just some of the things that Body work has helped my children with. There are many other issues that can be resolved with body work.
Many moms suffering while nursing are told that there is no hope because their baby’s mouth is “too small.” Or the baby has a recessed chin and nothing can be done. WRONG! Body work can resolve these issues! Below is a link to a fantastic a-rticle that details what body work can do, how to know if your baby needs body work, and why it works. I hope it helps you!
