Helping your Fussy & Crying Baby
What you'll learn
- Understanding babies needs in the first few months
This course is designed to help you though early parenting. I am Dr Mike Marinus, a Registered Chiropractor in Southampton, UK. I have a Masters Degree in Paediatric Musculoskeletal Health from Bournemouth University, UK as well as a Masters in Chiropractic from University of Johannesburg where I lived and worked for many years. My passion is in helping young families, especially babies in the first 3 months of life. I believe that skin-to-skin contact is hugely important for new parents. We need to find a way in the modern world to still "parent primitively". We need to help baby regulate by watching signs and signals. Colic can be an exhausting, stressful time for any family. I will explain what colic is, what causes it and how to manage it. How to know if your baby has reflux or GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease). What tests need to be done and what to expect from reflux tests. How can we treat and help reflux babies? Does it matter if baby is breastfed or bottle fed? We discuss milestones, tummy-time, rolling and sitting, crawling and walking. We have an entire section on Burping which is a vital part of easing tummy cramps in your newborn. We talk about gas in the intestines and what is normal behaviour with feeding. If your baby is crying - we want to know why and how to help. Should I leave my baby to "cry-it-out" and if not, how do I deal with crying. What is a healthy sleep pattern for my baby? What do you need to know about co-sleeping if you choose to do so?
Don't be cheated out of a beautiful bonding experience that the first few months of babies life can be. I am convinced that after doing this course, you will feel empowered and confident to start your parenthood journey.
