What's your opinion on taking baby to a chiropracter? Our neighbor is a chiropracter and DH is convinced that he can fix Jacob and he will stop being fussy. Me I'm not so sure. What do you all think?

I am taking Bryson Friday!
He is always popping off at the breast & started to spit up & very gassy. I hear it can do wonders so im trying it.

I definitely think it's worth a try!

My current chiro doesn't work on babies, but my previous one did. She was awesome -- more of a bodyworker/kinesiologist than a "pop/crack your back" kind of doctor. If she hadn't moved to Hawaii (grumble) I'd be taking Kira to her for sure.

I've heard it works, but I'm not sold on it. i wonder sometimes if it's all in peoples heads like placebo affect. Who knows.

Let me know! make me a believer

Hope it works!

I did chiro care during the latter part of my pregnancy when Grant turned transverse breech. He moved head down within a day or 2 (at about 37 weeks pregnant) and I felt better overall as well. My chiro does newborn treatments, but I haven't taken Grant. I wouldn't hesitate though if he was having any type of issue, but he's a pretty chill baby.

I looove my chiro for fixing my lower back pinched nerves. If I was having issues with my kiddo(s) I'd try the chiro for sure. Worth an attempt at least! Good luck!

If you get a good chiro they can work wonders. Some are just quacks, though, and those give the good ones a bad name.

I took Jacob to the Chrio this morning and he felt around on his neck and back. He said he could feel something on his neck and he did his adjustments. Now the chiro wants to see Jacob three times a week for several weeks. Not sure if I will do that or not. the chiro is our neighbor and he did say I could take jacob by his house so I may give it a few more times.

I'll let you know if Jacob seems any better. Right now he is still grunting and groaning like normal so I'm not sure if it worked or not.

Lindsey, some insurance pays and some don't. Ours does not any more, but our chiro discounts you if your insurance won't cover it. I pay $30/appt. Usually, it takes a few visits to get full results. Grant flipped from transverse immediately after my appointment, but I kept going once a week for the rest of pregnancy to alleviate body aches, etc.
