Many parents bring their babies in for a Chiropractic ‘MOT’ check, as they feel it is helpful to know their baby is starting out in good mechanical balance and neurological function. At the baby ‘MOT’ the parents are asked for a full history of the pregnancy and birth.

Of interest is the position of the baby in the womb and if it was in a breech or transverse position, and for how long. It is also important to know about your child presently, such as how well it sleeps, feeds and his/her general well being.

When babies receive treatment, they usually start sleeping better and appear more at ease and less strained. They can burp and have bowel movements with less pain and tension. Some parents find the bonding easier as the babies calm and settle down.
