18th December 2011, Comments 0 comments

A number of therapies for babies, especially for those prone to crying, are extremely dangerous and can even result in death, doctors warn.

There is a growing number of alternative therapists who offer such services, RTL news reports based on its own research. Some therapies involve bending the babies forward, which can cause breathing problems and in some cases can even cause the baby’s death. It can also damage the baby’s spine. Some therapists try to force the baby back into a foetal position. Doctors say the therapists overlook the fact that a foetus does not breathe yet. The doctors warn that folding babies into a foetal position is extremely dangerous and amounts to abuse.
