    i took a small hand towel and roleld it up then fastened it together with elastic bands. that way he wasn't propped up so much that he ws rolling over and it also meant that there wasn't anything "left over" for him to suffocate on.

    Hi,
    The two of mine that Caroline has worked on were both new borns. She can work on any age including adults. In terms of children, it's easier to work with babies rather than toddlers as they are prepared to keep still for longer.

    I can't remember how much she costs though I do know it wasn't cheap. We got a referral from our paediatrician both times and then the medical insurance company picked up the bill. It's worth a try.

    The traditional Indian baby massage shapes baby's head. We did this for D for the first few months. I used an Indian masseuse in TST. Will PM you her # if you're interested.

    Also, like Cara I used a sleep positioner so D could sleep on his side. You can get it at Toys R Us/Wing On. Also if you're nursing, I would also put D down in the direction of the last breast he fed on, so I would remember which side to feed from at the next feed, that way he slept on both sides equally and fed from both breasts.

    Thks Rani- and a great tip about the sleeping directions!

    The cranial ostepath that we were referred to costs the following,
    $750 for first session (50mins)
    $600 for further sessions (30 mins)

    Jools- how many sessions did you go for?

    Hoping our insurance will pay!

    With Caroline it really does depend pn how much work she has to do, so for each child it was different for the two of mine who she worked on. My daughter as I said was a ventouse delivery so she needed more work. I can't remember how many sessions she had, but I think my son had 7 or 8 sessions. I also liked that fact that when she had finished she signed them off and contacted the paediatrician to explain the treatment, so everyone is informed.

    I do know that each session with Caroline is an hour. Be aware that you won't always see Caroline as she also has other people working there all of which are very good; though I think you can request just to see her if you want to.
