This was rec'd when our son was an infant, by the IBCLC who helped me with my sons tongue tie. He is 8 months old now. We never did it, but now I'm wondering if we should. She noted some things like sloping on his cheeks, not wanting to turn a certain way, etc.. I notice, too, that when he lays on his back it's semi "C" shaped. Not a lot, but a little. His right shoulder pops, and has since birth. It's still fairly uncomfortable nursing him. I don't know if this is because of his higher palate, though, or what?
Also is this the same as osteopathy? I have noticed a lot of therapies like this rec'd on a lot of natural parenting web sites, but I don't know how to differentiate them.
And one other thing.. Is this something that could benefit anyone? What kinds of things do people generally go have this done for? Would my 4.5 year old get anything from it?
