The Hardest Baby To Breastfeed

This could be the reason your breastfeeding isn’t going well

Video Transcript:

HI! Christian Bates here of Calming Colic. So and this video I’m gonna tell you u the hardest baby to breastfeed.  

Okay,  so remember all the things that I am helping you with here there are patterns. It’s not every baby, it doesn’t work for every baby that’s the whole point because there isn’t one fix for every baby you’re your own mum you had a different delivery to everyone else babies all different.  

But if I’m gonna put a nice generalization on this would be a very hard baby to breastfeed and this might ring some bells for you.  Okay, so it’s a baby that’s had possibly quite a long delivery could have been quite traumatic lots of compressions on them while they were stuck down maybe they were bobbing in and out they weren’t coming out properly possibly they had to be helped out with ventouse or some forceps.  

Okay,  these are little meerkat babies so this is what I call them and in this course, you can go and have a look at the baby birth types.  But I’ve kind of invented so they’re a little meerkat baby made us stiff here.  

Okay, when you hold them they’re stiff and they’ve thrown themselves away from you because they favor this arched position like this.  So, they’ll be here and they’ll be back like this all the time the head would always be back when you hold them they’re comfortable back there their head like this.  

So, this is the little meerkat baby what does that mean when you breastfeed that means we would be again. I’ve got a demo breastfeeding on myself. I apologize when you bring them into breastfeeding they’re going away from you they’re always arching away. 

So, up here they throw themselves out there,  they are watching away, they don’t like laying on their back because when you’re laying on their back you’ve got to go this way and they don’t like that.  This is often the delivery is just a pattern there’s a curve form of delivery which might only be a few weeks in the past. 

Okay, so if this rings some bells then again it’s just softening the baby out with some of this gentle cranial Osteopathy treatment that we use and the baby becomes more floppy here and you can hold them on because if this is your baby you have felt how strong they have pushed away you can’t put that much pressure back on the baby.  

You don’t want to push them this hard so they’re very difficult because they’re constantly pushing away.  Okay, so if this little meerkat baby rings any bells and you’re stroking in the breastfeeding then do drop me an email

Thank you!
