Chiropractic Tips for Breastfeeding


Did you know that having your baby’s spine checked by a chiropractor can help with breastfeeding? Many new moms are finding great success with chiropractic care, and it’s an easy way to get started on the journey to a successful breastfeeding experience.

Keep reading for more information on how chiropractic care can help you and your little one!

Tip #1

Get adjusted regularly while pregnant – chiropractic care can help your body adjust to the added stress of breastfeeding.

When you are pregnant, your body goes through many changes. One of the most major is that it needs to adjust to carrying a baby and breastfeeding at once! Chiropractic care can help with this added stress by making sure everything in our bodies stays aligned correctly so we feel better all around.


Tip #2

See a chiropractor as soon as you give birth – they can help with any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing.

Giving birth is an incredible experience, but it can also bring about some discomfort. If you are experiencing pain or other symptoms after your baby’s arrival chiropractic care may be able to help.

Tip #3

Make sure your nursing pillow is comfortable and supportive – a good pillow will make breastfeeding easier and more relaxing for both you and your baby.

Tip #4

Drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods. To increase the chance of a successful breastfeeding experience, it is important to drink plenty of water and eat healthy foods. Staying hydrated while also getting enough nutrients will help keep your milk supply up!

Tip #5

Take breaks when needed – don’t feel guilty about taking a break every now and then to relax or get some sleep.


Tip #6

Get your newborn checked by a chiropractor. If you are dealing with pain while breastfeeding or cracked nipples it may be a sign that your baby is not latching properly. Pediatric chiropractors are able to work on a newborn’s palate, jaw, and cranial bones. This can help them latch more effectively, which means less pain for you!
