The Head Of A 4 Month Old Baby Is Tilted To The Right?
I want to ask … my son is 4.5 months old … my son has recently had his head tilted to the right …? yes..?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of a tilted baby's head can be caused by various things, including:
Abnormalities in the muscles, bones and supporting structures in the neck Nerve disorders A condition of plagiocephaly or flat head syndrome, in which the baby's head becomes asymmetrical due to being too often in certain positions Developmental disorders due to infection or other medical conditions
The condition of your new child can be more determined by checking it directly with a pediatrician. Your pediatrician will see if the tilt of your child's head is due to a lump or abnormality in the neck structure or something else. Your pediatrician will focus on extracting your child's medical history from pregnancy, as well as a physical exam. Whether this condition is normal or something that needs to be treated immediately, and how it is handled will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, don't force your child's head into a certain position and don't massage or massage it either. Make sure the head and body are resting on something soft. Continue to meet the needs of breast milk as usual and immediately take it to the pediatrician. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
