Chiropractor for Colic?
I started seeing Dr. Joe when my son was seven weeks old. He slept in his baby carrier day and night. If I laid him down flat on his back or stomach, he would wake up and cry within thirty minutes, he was a very colicky baby.
Our medical doctor said that he had mild colic and he gave me some informational papers on Colic and Infant Sleep Problems. Both papers suggested teaching your infant to sleep in his crib by letting him cry without any response from his parents. However, he was not yet 15 pounds, so this method was not yet recommended.
He started sleeping on his stomach after three of Dr. Joe’s mild adjustments!
