So, in talking to lots of people about whats going on with Georgia (and after her screaming fit last night until 2 am) and what we can do to help her feel better and help us get some sleep, chiropractic has come up twice. I have a friend from ISU and a friend of a friend who have both suggested getting her adjusted and have told me about the major changes it can make in a newborn who is colicky, has GI issues, etc…
Of course the thought of something that after a few treatments will make her a happy and rested baby is super tempting! But if it’s so great, how come more people don’t know about it or talk about it? How come regular doctors don’t suggest it if it helps that much?
Is it safe? I know the chiropractors who do it are licensed as pediatric adjusters, but still, with teeny tiny bodies and bones, it just is scary. But if it will make her feel better and not hurt or scream, then I’m all for it. Watching the pain in her face just breaks my heart.
Any experience with this out there? Suggestions? Thoughts?
It’s another option that I’m weighing and thinking about and researching. Ryan isn’t as psyched about even considering it as I am, so we have to keep talking about it and weighing all the options.. To be continued!
