Tummy Time Tips for Your Little One! 🍼✨
Hey parents! Ready to support your baby’s development with some tummy time? Here are our top tips to make it fun and beneficial! 👶💕

Tummy Time Tips:

1. Start Early: Begin tummy time as soon as you bring your baby home. Newborns can benefit from a few minutes each day.

2. Short & Frequent: Aim for multiple short sessions throughout the day. Start with 1-2 minutes and gradually increase as your baby gets stronger.

3. Use a Play Mat: Place your baby on a soft, flat surface like a play mat or blanket for comfort.

4. Get Down to Their Level: Lie on the floor facing your baby to provide encouragement and interaction.

5. Tummy to Tummy: Lie on your back and place your baby on your chest or tummy. They’ll lift their head to look at you, strengthening their muscles.

6. Toys & Mirrors: Use toys or a baby-safe mirror to capture their attention and encourage head lifting.
7. Incorporate Daily: Make tummy time part of your daily routine, like after diaper changes or naps.

8. Provide Support: Use a rolled-up towel or tummy time pillow under their chest for added support.

9. Stay Close: Always supervise to ensure safety and provide encouragement.

10. Be Patient & Consistent: Gradually increase duration as your baby gets accustomed to tummy time.

11. Sing & Talk: Sing songs, talk, or make funny faces to keep your baby entertained.

12. Different Surfaces: Place your baby on various textures for a varied sensory experience.

13. Involve Siblings: Encourage older children to play with the baby during tummy time for fun family interaction.

Bonus Tips for Parents:
* Be patient and keep sessions positive to make tummy time enjoyable.
* Celebrate small achievements to keep your baby motivated!

Tummy time is crucial for your baby’s physical development, helping to strengthen muscles and promote motor skills. Let’s make tummy time a fun part of your daily routine! 💪✨

🌟 Infant TMJD🌟

Have you noticed your baby’s jaw shifting to one side when they yawn or feed? This could be a sign of infant TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction. It’s more common than you might think and can affect your baby’s feeding, and comfort.

👶 Why Does This Happen?
Jaw dysfunction in infants can result from birth trauma, prolonged positions during breastfeeding, or even tension in the muscles and joints.

💆‍♀️ How Can Chiropractic and Myofascial Work Help?

Chiropractic Care: Gentle adjustments can help realign your baby’s jaw, improving function and reducing discomfort.
Myofascial Release: Soft tissue techniques release tension in the muscles and fascia around the jaw, promoting better movement and alignment.

✨ Benefits of Treatment:

Improved latch and feeding efficiency
Reduced discomfort and fussiness
Enhanced overall development and well-being
If you notice these signs in your baby, consider a chiropractic assessment. We’re here to support your little one’s health journey with gentle, effective care. 💖

🌿👶 Embracing the Postpartum Journey 👶🌿

Hey mamas! 💕 Let’s talk about the amazing, yet often overlooked, journey of postpartum recovery. 🤱 Did you know that breastfeeding can influence ligament laxity due to hormonal changes? This can have a significant impact on your post-pregnancy activities, especially high-intensity ones like running and jumping. 🏃‍♀️💨

For many of us, the idea of bouncing back to our pre-pregnancy routine in just six weeks might seem daunting or unrealistic. And guess what? It often is! 🚫⏰ Every body is unique, and the postpartum period demands patience, understanding, and proper assessment of function before diving back into strenuous activities.

That’s why it’s crucial to work with professionals who understand the nuances of postpartum recovery. 🤝 Whether it’s a knowledgeable chiropractor or a supportive healthcare provider, having the right guidance can make all the difference in preventing injuries and safely reaching your exercise goals.

So let’s shift the narrative away from arbitrary timelines and towards a more holistic approach to postpartum wellness. 🌟 Let’s honor our bodies, celebrate their resilience, and prioritize our long-term health over quick fixes. Together, we can navigate this journey with grace, strength, and plenty of self-love. 💪💖 ❤️

🌟 Common Postpartum Challenges: The Hip Scoop Effect! 🌟

Hey, fabulous mamas! 👶💃 Let’s dive into a common postpartum challenge, the classic “hip out” pose we often find ourselves in while carrying our adorable bundles of joy. 🤰💖

Did you know that this seemingly harmless stance might be affecting your body AND your little one more than you think? 🔄 It’s time for a quick body awareness check!

🚨 The Hip Scoop: When we carry our baby on one hip and push that hip out, we’re unintentionally throwing our body off balance. 🤔 This could lead to issues like lower back pain, hip discomfort, and even affect your posture over time.

🤹 Balancing Act: Consider distributing the weight evenly between both hips to maintain balance. Swap sides regularly, and embrace the symphony of movement that comes with being a supermom! 🎭💪

👩‍⚕️ Double Trouble: Carrying on the same side can lead to tight muscles and joints from repetitive motion in not only Mama but in baby too! Repetitive motions but stress on the body that can lead to joint restrictions and body dysfunction. 😬

💆‍♀️ Chiropractic Check: If you or your little one are feeling the effects, a visit to a chiropractor could work wonders. They specialize in providing expert care to keep everything aligned and promote overall well-being. 🌈💆‍♀️

So, let’s strike a balance, beautiful mamas! 💕🌟

🌟 Embracing the Postpartum Fitness Journey with Chiropractic Care 🌟

Hey, amazing mamas! 👶✨ I’m diving into a topic close to my heart – the postpartum fitness journey, with a special shoutout to the incredible support that chiropractic care can offer. 🤰🏽💆‍♀️

“When can I return to exercise after baby?” It’s a question many of us ask, and guess what? The magic number isn’t always 6 weeks! ⏳✨
Just like every pregnancy and birth is unique, so is every postpartum recovery.

Here’s where chiropractic care comes in – practitioners can provide personalized assessments and guidance for when it’s safe to return to different types of exercise. 🌈💖 There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, and that’s where the beauty of individualized care shines.

Chiropractors can assess your body’s unique needs, considering factors like hormone release and its effects on the body, muscle tone, and any postpartum discomfort you may be experiencing. They can offer a roadmap for your return to exercise that’s tailored just for you. 🧙‍♂️💪

So, whether you’re starting your fitness routine at 6 weeks or beyond, working hand-in-hand with a chiropractor can make all the difference. 🏃‍♀️💆‍♂️ They’ll guide you on the safest and most effective exercises for YOUR body because, let’s face it, there’s no one-size-fits-all in the postpartum world.

Remember, your journey is uniquely yours, and embracing it with chiropractic support can make it even more empowering. Let’s inspire and support each other on this incredible journey. 💕🙌

🚶‍♀️✨ Posture Awareness Alert! Break Free from the Slump! ✨🚶‍♂️

Hey Posture Pals! 👋 Let’s talk about the common stance many of us unconsciously adopt—shoulders rolled forward, head jutting out, and hips playing hide and seek with their neutral position. 🤦‍♀️ This can lead to tight muscles, cranky joints, and a one-way ticket to Dysfunction City!

🔍 Spot the Stance: Picture on the left—Ever notice yourself or others standing with shoulders slouched forward? Head seemingly leading the way? Hips joining the forward party? It’s a familiar scene, especially for desk warriors and new mamas cradling their bundles of joy.

🔄 Why It Matters: This position can be a recipe for muscle tension, joint issues, and the unwelcome guest—pain. But fear not! Part of having a happier body lies in our stance.

✨ How to Stand Tall and Relaxed: Picture on the right—standing tall but relaxed, shoulders gracefully back and down, hips in a neutral position. 🌈 Engaging the core and glutes becomes a magical bonus, and voila! Stress on the spine takes a vacation.

🌟 Posture Power Tips:
1️⃣ Desk Dwellers: Take mini breaks and get up to walk around, stretch, and adjust your setup for ergonomic bliss.

2️⃣ New Mamas: Try to hold baby midline and/or alternate sides when cradling your little bundle, try to sit up right when feeding with your back supported and sneak in gentle stretches when you can.

🚀 Cultivate the Habit: Incorporate these posture-perfect tips daily, and witness the transformation. It’s not just about looking good; it’s about feeling fantastic from the inside out!

When should I bring my baby to see the chiropractor?

I have been getting this question a lot lately and here are a few signs your little one could benefit from a chiropractic assessment.

🌿Issues Latching or Latching easier on one side. Reduced range of motion in the jaw or neck can contribute to latching difficulty.

🌿Having trouble getting baby to sleep with their head turned both ways? Notice one side of their head missing hair or a flat spot? Tight joints or muscles can be causing a preference of turning to one side.

🌿Does baby arch their back while crying or lift their head off your shoulder before 3 months? Muscle tension in baby’s back can contribute this arching motion.

These are just a few of the many reason your little angel should have a chiropractic assessment. Chiropractors that specialize in paediatrics see baby’s of all ages even some that are only a few hours old!

10/02/2023

Chiropractic care for infants and small children is very gentle and is very different from how an adult is treated. Light and low force techniques that are appropriate for babies and children are utilized. Chiropractors who work with infants and young children typically have specialized training in pediatric care and will assess the child’s specific needs before providing treatment.

🐶Difficult birth: Physical stress from the use of vacuums, forceps or long labours can be necessary to bring our precious little ones into the world. These can also cause discomfort, joint restrictions and muscle tension. Chiropractors can assess your little one to see if their muscles and joints are moving appropriately.

🐵Latching issues: Tight muscles and restricted joints can make it difficult for babies to turn their head and latch. Chiropractic treatment can help to resolve this issue and help your little one move and latch with ease.

🦁Slips and falls: Whether learning how to walk, run and climb or playing in the playground slips and falls are extremely common. These minor traumas can affect the muscles and joints. Chiropractors can help improve your child’s function and reduce pain.

🦊Poor Posture: Is often the result of muscles imbalances. Over time poor posture can cause pain and reduce function. Chiropractors can assess for muscle imbalances and joint restrictions that can contribute to poor posture. They can provide the necessary treatment, education and customize care to help your little on be at their best.

🐯Looking down at devices: Tech neck has a negative impact on both adults and children. This can lead to postural changes and increased stress on the spine. Regular care and education from a chiropractor can help prevent or improve pain and reduced function from tech neck.

🐻Sports Participation: Movement is a very good and necessary thing for our health, however repetitive stress and strain and minor traumas can cause many issues. During sports participation it is a very good idea to have regular chiropractic care for prevention and to keep your little ones playing their best.
