Nervous baby and problems sleeping.

img-thingSome babies may sleep for only short periods and may sleep very little during the day or the night whilst others may wake at the slightest noise or want to be held all the time.

These babies may have tension on the bony membranous tissue surrounding their skull, keeping their nervous system in an alert state and making it difficult for them to relax and go into a deep sleep.

An osteopath can help to release the tensions in you baby’s body, helping it to relax.

What can you do?

  • Swaddling your baby can help to settle them.
  • Place a firm hand on your babies tummy to help them relax.
  • Alternatively, let them hold your finger.
