Naturopathic Care For Newborns
When your new baby first arrives in the world, it’s often a time for celebration.
However, along with your new baby comes a whole host of challenges for you, your spouse, and your new baby.
Whatever those challenges may be, a naturopathic doctor can work along with your primary care physician to keep both you and your new baby healthy. Here are some of the issues new parents can face.
Naturopathic Treatments For Breastfeeding Parents
Breastfeeding has been proven, time and again, to be the healthiest, most nutritious option for your new baby. If you are able to, it’s a good idea to breastfeed your baby.
However, not all breast milk is created equal. Your body makes its breast milk from the resources it has available. This means that if you’re suffering from poor nutrition, your breast milk won’t be as nutritious as it could be.
On top of this, for some, it’s difficult to maintain an adequate supply of breast milk to keep their baby proper nourished. While you can use formula to top up the amount, breast milk is always more ideal.
You may also experience pain during breastfeeding. While it may be embarrassing to discuss, pain during and/or after breastfeeding sessions is not uncommon. There are naturopathic solutions for this as well.
For as long as you choose to breastfeed your new baby, the naturopathic doctors at Annex Naturopathic will be there for you. We have naturopathic solutions designed to help you maintain your level of nutrition so you can provide the most nutritious breast milk to your new baby while keeping your own health at its highest level.
Naturopathic Treatments For Colicky Babies
Dealing with a new baby can be a difficult adjustment period for any new parent. Add colic to the mix, and it can become much harder.
A colicky baby is an otherwise healthy baby that still cries frequently. There are many different possible causes of colic, including:
- Digestive issues
- Growing pains
- Nervous system and brain inflammation
- Irregular heartbeat
- Increased pressure behind the eyes
Sometimes, the cause of colic is difficult to pinpoint, but in most cases it gets better around four months of age. If it doesn’t, there could be something deeper at play.
Whatever the cause is of your baby’s colicky nature, however, there are naturopathic solutions available which can help. Call us here at Annex Naturopathic to find out more.
