I'm 29 weeks on Friday and at my obs appt today we discovered bubs is lying breech. I'm pretty sure he's been in that position for a few weeks now. So I've been reading on the spinning babies website about the breech tilt position and inversion and was wondering if it's too early to try and use these to help bubs flip.
I know it's still early and my obs said bub has plenty of time to turn, but I'm hoping to have a vbac and so want to do everything I can to make it happen.

When to start trying to turn a breech baby

I wish I could help you out, but my little man was an undiagnosed breech, so I ended up delivering him naturally. He came out just fine!
I guess you should just be guided by your OB. I remember in my antenatal class that the middy was saying that you shouldn't lounge back when watching telly and relaxing etc, but lean forward with your arms over another chair in front of you to encourage bub to be the right way. Not sure if it will do anything, but it wouldn't hurt I guess.
If there are other non invasive things that you can do at home, I would try doing that now, and then wait for your OB appointments regarding actually turning bub physically.
Best of Luck.

I don't have any advice on the techniques to use or when to start using them but I just wanted to tell you that my SIL's bub was breach and she was booked in for a ceasar.
Ceasar day came, she got dressed into her hospital gear and got wheeled into pre-op ready to go.
OB came in and said "right, we're ready to go, we'll do one last scan to make sure bub hasn't turned in the last 24 hrs"
Ultrasound done, SIL got the shock of her life to hear that bub had turned overnight! So no ceasar was done that day, bub arrived on her own 2 weeks later!
I just wanted to tell you that story to give you hope that there's still plenty of time sorry I have no advice about any techniques though.
Best of luck

Give it a few more weeks, if the baby is not head down by 34 weeks or so that is when I would attempt to try and intervene.
DS didn't go head down until 34 weeks and he came a week after that!

A friend was telling me that her son did sumersaults in her belly all the time!!
she was told her son was breech and the doctor wanted to turn him... She insisted there was no point because he will turn again, but the doctor persisted and turned him... but she was right... 2 days after the doctor turned him she had another appointment and he was breech again!! LOL
so I think it's hard to say - I think the babies just do what they want!
