Failure to Nurse: A Case Study

A 3 month old female infant was refusing to breastfeed for several days. A few days prior, her head had been whipped backward while being picked up by her older brother. Upon examination, subluxation was found at the levels of Occiput, C2 and C3. After one adjustment the infant began nursing, but only on one side. She was nursing normally on both sides after the second adjustment the following day. She continued for 6-8 more visits and is now receiving wellness care.
