The Baby Colic & Early Days Programme

Belén working with babies

I have developed a unique method that combines:

  • Physical therapy (hands-on craniosacral therapy). Read more on the science behind craniosacral therapy for colic relief.
  • Nutritional therapy
  • Pre and perinatal psychology
  • My MSc research project on the effectiveness of maternal diet for colic relief
  • My own clinical experience of +6 years

This blend of approaches helps me to resolve colicky symptoms in a safe, gentle and effective way. There are many factors contributing to crying/fussiness:

  • Unresolved compression of the base of the skull, head and tightness in the body due to birth dynamics which may impact on the nerves responsible for feeding and digestion. This can manifest as difficulties latching, swallowing, sucking, burping, regurgitation, excessive wind and constipation among others.
  • Gut inflammation and an imbalance of healthy gut bacteria can lead to cramping, bloating, reflux-like symptoms, frequent nappy change and/or straining and food reactions including difficulty digesting lactose and/or cow’s milk protein.
  • Strong emotions associated with birth and early days can have negative effects on the baby’s sleep patterns, alertness, ability to soothe and bonding.

What to expect


Before a consultation

Book an appointment, fill out the questionnaire attached to your booking confirmation email and return at least 24hrs before we first meet.

The Baby colic & early days programme consists of 3 consultations over 3 consecutive weeks, €336.

Please note this is a one-off payment due after your initial consultation. No deposit is required at the time of booking. More details below.

Both parents are welcomed. However, bringing siblings to the consultation is not encouraged as it can take away the focus and be a source of distraction.

Baby Colic & Early days

During a consultation

Consultations take place on their parents’ arms, floormat or the plinth depending on the stage of development of the baby. On the floormat, I am able to observe and recognise baby language which can provide helpful insights. On the plinth, I am able to show parents helpful exercises.

Building trust and making baby and parents comfortable is key. I approach babies with a caring, non-judgemental attitude and respect their timings, i.e. is it ok to feed or change a baby during a consultation.

Consultations are dynamic. They will be time to answer questions/concerns from the parents, hands-on therapy time with the baby as well as gentle exploration of the birth story as a family.

After a consultation

A personalised plan with recommendations for you and your baby, including:

  • Home exercises to ease restrictions and support digestion
  • If breastfed, maternal dietary recommendations, including key foods to include/avoid as well as suitable replacements.
  • If bottle-fed, recommendations to optimise nutrients through formula.
  • Natural remedies and supplements (when needed) to aid with digestion and sleep with detailed instructions on dose and timings.

The plan is reviewed and updated after each consultation so that you can track the changes.
