Babies have a great capacity to communicate with us through their own movement. Over the years, I have refined techniques to tap into baby wisdom that are simple, fun and easy to do, especially during everyday tasks like feeding and diapering. For example, when our babies kick, we can put our hands on their feet and follow their kick with a minimum of engaged pressure. Because babies are all one piece, their tight neck muscles begin to unwind when “cued” from their feet. Using our responsive hands, baby can explore many other options for unwinding. As the tight neck muscles unwind, digestion improves and the torsions generated from birth are released. In this way, the natural capacity for baby to come into balance gains full expression.
Here are some quick videos of ways you can use baby cranial modalities to support your baby.
