  1. Hi Frank. Many of my mum friends recommended you! My baby girl Lexie is now 3 and a half months old. She was born via a planned C-section. She has reflux and is taking Zantac twice a day which has stopped the projectile vomiting thank God but still spits up regularly and is very windy…farting like an old man at times!! I was breast feeding until she was 10 weeks old but had to convert to bottle feeding because she was so unsettled feeding and wasn’t taking enough before switching breasts and getting very cross at feeding times! She is definitely more settled with the bottle feeding but still gets very cross and fights the bottle nearly choking if family members try and feed her!! She is a light enough sleeper and wouldn’t sleep for long during her day naps. Wants to be up all the time and if the car stops moving or we are at a red light she gets very upset!! Her cry since the day she was born is very strong (even the nurses said it!) and she can go from 0-100 in seconds for no apparent reason!! Im wondering if cranio osteopathy would be of any benefit to her?

    1. Hi Aundrea, it sounds like your little girl is having quite a tough start! I do feel Frank could help her tho. I should say that cranial osteopathy cannot strengthen the valve at the top of the tummy, but I’m sure Frank’s treatment will help her. I often tell Mums that the information they get from Frank is as valuable as the treatment baby gets. Give us a call at the clinic on Monday if you would like an appointment (0214348918) Rose.

    1. Hi Orla, night terrors is something that responds really well to cranial osteopathy. If you’d like an appointment just give the clinic a call on 021 4348918 and we can arrange a suitable day. Regards, Rose.

  2. Hi Frank I have a 3 month old baby girl who has started waking in the night in a panic crying, she was 5 weeks early and had a tramatic birth , feeding well and happy, do you think she would benefit from a session

    1. Hi Fiona. I checked with Frank and he said he can help your little one. Give the clinic a call on 0314348918 and we can arrange an appointment. Regards, Rose.

    1. Hi, I asked Frank and he said he has never treated a child so young with an underbite. Normally he might see older children who have been referred by their dentist or orthodontist for treatment. Has someone checked your little one for a tongue tie? Rose.

  3. Hi, my 5 week old is very windy! After a feed I might she is very uncomfortable lying down squirming and kicking her legs and hands out even after an hour of winding her. I’ve tried infacol and colief but dont think it’s made a difference. Is there anything you can do to help? Thanks

    1. Hi Jenny, digestive issues in babies are what Frank sees most here at the clinic. I certainly think an appointment would be beneficial. Give me a call on 021 4348918 and we can organise one for you. Rose.

  4. Hi Frank! I have 8 weeks girl, she was born via emergency c-section. She doesn’t like lying on her back, never sleeps on her back, doesn’t like being put down. I am holding her almost all the time. She is also a very light sleeper during the day. Do you think you would be able to help with it?

    1. Hi Agne, sounds like you both are having a difficult time.
      Will you give me a call on 021 4348918 and I will chat to you more about your little girl.
      Rose.

  5. Hi Frank,

    I was just wondering what you would recommend for a 6 week old baby. She grunts a lot in her sleep when lying flat. She does have difficulty with bowel movements (takes a lot for her to go) but stool is soft and yellow. She’s fully
    Breast feed. We are based north of Dublin so too far for a visit but if you could recommend anything or anyone to see that would be great.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Marie. It may be a gut issue. Have you tried a baby probiotic? Proven do a great breastfeeding one. Or sometimes a baby will have a little difficulty with cows milk protein. You could reduce the dairy in your own diet to see if this helps her. Hope this helps Marie. Rose.

  6. Hi Frank
    I have a boy that is 5 turning 6 at Xmas, he’s just started in senior Infants.. We have trouble with angry built up in him and toilet issues, doctors say it will all come right in time.. Its so frustrating as he’s now in seniors, he can be so sweet and caring but it’s to listen is the problem half the time .. Also he’s in speech therapy but improving.. Do you think you could help

    1. Frank would be very happy to see him Louise. Has he had his hearing checked? Some kids with fluid in the ear can become frustrated and act out and as he’s already having speech therapy, Frank will check his ears. Give the clinic a call if you’d like to book him in. Regards, Rose.

    2. Hi Louise, can you give the clinic a call on Monday on 021 4348918 and we will organise that apt for your son. Talk soon, Rose.

  7. Hi Frank
    My baby boy is now 7 months. He suffered from reflux until about 5 months but is now much better. We managed it by changing position breastfeeding & frequent winding and holding upright after feeds. He has been very contented& well since reflux symptoms improved. In the past week though he has been waking at night every hour or more and crying much more than normal. It might be teething or a sleep regression? He is not as interested in solids this past week either.Is there anything you can help with for this ? He still has a lot of wind but not spitting up after feeds.
    Thanks ,
    Eva

    1. Hi Eva, it sounds like it may be teething alright. Might be worth checking in with your GP just to be sure for a possible ear / throat infection too. If this is a pattern that continues on for a month or so, then Frank may be able to help. Hopefully though it will resolve soon and he will be back to his normal sleep pattern. Hope this helps Eva, Rose.
