3-month-old Babies Fuss When Their Heads Are Lifted?
Hello … my child is 3 months. From last night he was fussy when I lifted his head I think in the back of the neck he was sick. How to deal with it? Thank you🙏
Hello, thank you very much for asking at HealthReplies.com
Does the child appear unable to move his head left and right? Does a child who has been able to lift his head when facedown seems unable to lift his head? Are there any lumps on the child's neck?
Beforehand, try to make sure the child is getting enough milk. The mother can feel the crown of the child who is still open. If the fontanel is sunken, indicating the child is lacking bodily fluids, then the mother can breastfeed the child immediately or give formula milk if the child is not exclusively breastfed. In addition to the crown, the mother can also see the child's lips and eyes. Children who lack fluids appear sunken in their eyes and dry on their lips.
After making sure the child is not in a state of dehydration or lack of body fluids, then make sure the child's bowel smoothly (not constipated) and the stomach does not feel tight (bloating). Then make sure there are no diaper rashes on the crotch of the child which makes the child uncomfortable. Also make sure that children are not fussy because they want to be lulled, where generally children who are accustomed to swing will ask to be swung. This often becomes an obstacle when children are taken away.
If it is confirmed that there are no problems with the above and the child is still fussy, you should immediately take the child to a pediatrician so that he can be examined directly. Is it true that there is a problem with the neck or not.
Thus hopefully useful.
