Where is my Child's Balance?! - Why Does My Child Keep Falling Over

WHERE is my Child’s BALANCE?!

.

Have you ever been falling asleep and you almost feel like you are floating almost like you are in an upright position? 

. 

And then...

.

You are falling...

.

Falling...

.

FALLING FAST...

.

and WHAM!

.

You startle Big Time and you are back in your body in a horizontal position. 

.

Knowing where we are at in space is Super Important. 

.

I am not talking about in relationship to the floor, but in your relationship to gravity and your force interaction relationships. 

.

Your body needs to know when it is, Horizontal, or Vertical whether or not I am laying on the floor or hanging in the air.

.

When we move, we should be building a Symbiotic Relationship With Gravity. 

.

We experience gravity in 360 degrees. It's all around us. 

.

That being said our balance has to be in 360 degrees.

.

A child shouldn't be randomly falling, (yes we may occasionally trip on things, I am not talking about that kind of falling)....

Functional Rotational Movements and Milestone Development

Rotation and Movement

Milestone development is not based on strength but one's ability to rotate in and through what seems like invisible space around us, but really it's gravity and the interaction our body has with gravity.

 

For a child what makes the stepping stone of milestone development possible is the child’s ability to successfully move in and out of each milestone independently using rotational movements.

 

Now I keep saying rotation.

 

 

Because, yes, you can work on muscle strengthening so a child can muscle through movements, but eventually the child will reach a point where they can’t muscle through anymore because their body is too heavy and gravity has become too much to work against.

 

It has nothing to do with strength.

 

Which is counterintuitive.

 

We think we just need to build more strength but movement shouldn’t take work and when it does we don’t want to do it anymore.

 

When you focus on...

Teach a Child How to Eat Using Utensils

 

How to teach a child how to eat with utensils; it's different than you think.

 
Many think teaching a child how to eat is about putting a utensil in the hand and getting the utensil to the mouth.
 
For some children, this approach may work.
 
But if you have tried this and you are wondering why your child just isn't getting it, there is an important factor about this functional movement that you are missing.
 
All functional movements require rotational movements.
 
Functional movements do not require one to develop more strength.
 
When a child lacks rotation in the wrist, elbow, and/or shoulder, eating with utensils can be a very difficult, if not impossible task.
 
So instead of being frustrated that your child isn't getting it, there is a simple solutions checklist you can go through to teach your child rotational movements so their body starts to understand functional movements like eating with...

2 Ways Intubation, Feeding Tube (NG or NJ Tube), and / or NICU Time Affects Milestone Development

Birth Trauma and Cranial Developments

Birth Trauma can be a variety of things:

  • Intubation
  • Feeding Tube (NG or NJ Tube)
  • NICU Time
  • and more

When a child experiences a birth trauma that interrupts their cranial movements, developmental delays can occur. 

How? 

Because these types of birth trauma can cause two types of jams in the cranial system. 

First, is an ATLAS JAM

Your child may be struggling with things like:

  • Head control
  • Eating
  • Swallowing
  • Hates tummy time
  • Not rolling over

The head needs to be able to counter all the movements in the spine, and when there is an atlas jam, it can't; therefore key transitional movements patterns can not occur. 

Why Are Transitional Movement Patterns Important?

Transitional Movement Patterns are what should happen in a person's body between each of the "baby milestones" that you know.

These are not all of the established milestones given by the CDC, but here are just a few:

  • Head lift
  • Tummy time
  • Head control
  • Rolling over
  • ...
