I gave birth to my beautiful son in early November 2012. James had trouble with wind and digestion from day one, and we tried everything. I changed his formula, I purchased special bottles for colic babies, and I read every article there is available on the condition that is called colic.
After 8 weeks of sleepless nights, and general unhappiness, I decided to ask my public health nurse what we could do. That was the moment my life changed. It was a dark, dreary Monday morning, as I left my public health nurse, with a piece of paper with the name ‘Ellen Wakefield’ and a number for a chiropractic business in Clane. The end of that week looked and felt a lot brighter!! I will be honest, I had my doubts, perhaps it was my own ignorance but I just didn’t think this was going to work. I made the appointment for January 12, 2013. James screamed through his first session- I was sceptical, I was nervous- who wouldn’t be. How wrong was I? Ellen made both my husband and I feel very comfortable and at ease, she explained what she was going to do, and to be honest, the session was over before I even realised. James slept for 3 hours after that- the longest nap he ever had!
That was the Saturday. We had 2 more visits that week, and on Thursday January 17th, James Canny slept the night- 10 hours without waking. I 100% believe this was down to the amazing and effective, yet gentle work done by Ellen. We continued the visits twice a week for a month and then reduced it to once a week. My Prince smiled each time he saw Ellen, even my 3 year old was asking when we are going to see the magic doctor! James has been sleeping the night constantly 10-11 hours since that first visit with Ellen. If you are a mother/father struggling with seeing and hearing your little one with digestion/colic related problems, don’t wait it out, don’t get stressed, ring Ellen- you will not regret it!
It was one of the best decisions I have made this year- the only problem is I wish I had known about her sooner!
