Why should I bring my newborn in for care? They don’t have any posture problems … they haven’t been in an accident or fallen … they have just been born! How could anything be wrong!!??

Well, just being born and entering this world is a big deal in itself.

Even before babies are born, structural imbalances and nerve irritation can occur in the uterus from awkward fetal positioning and restriction of movement (known as intrauterine constraint). After spending the last few months of gestation in a cramped uterus, the process of being born can be intense. Both mama and baby work really hard to help baby enter the world. A routine birth is hard-wired into baby and is a mix of compression, turning, twisting, contractions and torques. All so your little one can make it through the birth canal. It is not easy but they know exactly what to do.

A normal routine birth already places physical stress on your newborn’s head and body. So when interventions are thrown into the pot, while they are necessary for your baby’s safety and well-being, they may also add stresses and strains to your baby’s body. Considering all this, your little one may be having issues as an aftermath of all this.

Here are eight reasons for attendance newborns were brought in by their parents:


Feeding issues

Sleeping issues

Uncomfortable when lying on back

Unable to turn head equally to both sides

Difficult birth

Head shape concerns


This study also found that the most common of these concerns was feeding issues at 47% of the total of 1,991 babies. Often there were two issues at hand. And in over 80% of cases the babies were younger than 12 weeks.
