Breastfeeding and The Chiropractic Approach.

To ensure natural pregnancy pediatric chiropractic care, doctors of chiropractic have traditionally been strong proponents of breastfeeding. Now, just-published research shows that doctors should not only encourage mothers to breastfeed, but should also instruct them to stay at it for at least six months. According to an article in the Archives of Disease in Childhood, babies who are breast-fed for at least six months grow to be more intelligent than their peers who are breast-fed for less time.

This is because breast milk provides the ideal balance of nutrients for a growing baby’s brain and body.

Chiropractors can also play a role in supporting breastfeeding mothers and improving their infants’ health. Chiropractic adjustments can help to correct any misalignments in the spine or neck that may be causing discomfort or difficulty for the baby in latching on properly. The adjustments can also help to improve overall nerve system function, which can lead to better digestion, immunity and overall health for the baby.

Mothers can also benefit from chiropractic care during the breastfeeding process. Chiropractors can help to alleviate any discomfort or pain in the neck, shoulders, back or hips that may be caused by breastfeeding. They can also provide guidance on proper posture and positioning while breastfeeding, which can help to prevent future problems and make the experience more comfortable.

In summary, breastfeeding provides numerous health benefits for babies, including improved intelligence. Chiropractors can support breastfeeding by providing adjustments for the baby and the mother to improve overall health and comfort during the process.
