Craniosacral Therapy Question
Hi! Hoo boy, where to start. I have a six-month-old son and we've had trouble nursing from the very beginning. I was finally able to get him to nurse for a few months with a nipple shield, but I've had to exclusively pump for him for the last couple months since he completely refused to nurse.
I have no supply issues, but according to my midwife (who is a certified lactation consultant) he has a really weak suck. And it's true, he doesn't like to suck on things as much as he did as a newborn. He likes pacifiers, but only to chew on, and it seemed like he wasn't able to suck out enough milk when he nursed, regardless of the latch. He got so upset and frusterated that he would scream and cry whenver I tried to nurse him, so I switched to pumping. I also work four days a week, so I have to pump for daycare, anyway.
My midwife suggested I try craniosacral therapy for the suck issue so we have an apointment set up for a couple weeks from now. Has anyone had any experience with a craniosacral therapist? I really don't know what to expect.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
