Baby balance method

Baby Balance Method (BBM) is a combination of CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY, INFANT MASSAGE, AND REFLEX ACTIVATION AND/OR INTEGRATION: All methods provides a gentle, hands-on approach to release tensions deep in the baby’s body. BBM helps provide balance and realignment, therefore the baby becomes calmer, less tense, has improved jaw and tongue mobility which typically improves breastfeeding. Ensuring the baby is as comfortable as possible, Julie will relieve pain and dysfunction, as well as improve whole-body health and performance. The touch used is no more than five grams of pressure (the weight of a nickel). In a typical pediatric BBM session, infants are generally placed on a massage table, in the therapist’s lap, or in the parent’s lap. The treatment portion of the session typically consists of hands-on, rhythmic massages across the baby’s skull, jaw, mouth area, and temples, and in the mouth.

Before and after tongue tie revision...

Baby Balance Method plays an important role in pre and post revision of lip and tongue ties. BBM balance tissues in the face, mouth, neck, and spinal cord by helping regulate the brain and spinal cord before and after a tongue tie revision.

Whether breast or bottle-fed, babies’ oral structures are important. Having lip and tongue ties can impact not just infancy, but can cause lifelong issues, such as, but not limited too:

  • open mouth posture with sleeping
  • sleep apnea
  • retracted jaw
  • breathing difficulties
  • difficulty with feeding transitions & chewing
  • speech difficulties
  • ADD/ADHD
  • correlation of being tied to allergies
  • neck pain
  • migraines

feeding and other issues...

 Baby Balance Method can also be beneficial for babies who do not open their mouth up enough to properly suck during feeding, regardless if they are bottle or breastfed.  BBM is highly advised if: 

  • a physician or IBCLC recommendations regarding proper breastfeeding positions do not remedy the problem
  • the baby is on reflux medicine
  • has gone more than one day without a bowel movement
  • pulls or reaches for their ears throughout the day
  • being monitored for weight gain
  • misshaped skull shape
  • unsettled in their little bodies 

Babies grow in available space, get stuck in the vaginal canal, drop into the pelvis early, have long delivery, etc. All of these may effect the tension of the sutures and membranes of the skull causing imbalances and tightness in the spinal cord, throat, mouth, traveling throughout their whole bodies.  This may make cause a sense of uncomfortable tight sensation throughout their bodies making it hard to stay asleep, feel unsettled, having suck issues, swallow, breath sequence, breathing deeply and fully, digest, and eliminate. Balancing sutures, membranes, of the skull relaxes and balances the whole body creating more function.  Does your baby have a skull that may need some balancing?
