Why Is My Baby’s Head Often Tilted To The Right?
I want to ask … my child’s age is now 6 months, but often the right side is tilted, already in order, it’s normal, right, then it is tilted again, how about that ???
Hello Ms. Fitri! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Infants who maintain the neck to one side may experience abnormalities in the structure of the neck. One disorder that often occurs in infants is called torticollis. Torticollis occurs due to a disruption in one side of the neck muscle that occurs due to disruption of the position during labor. The bigger the child, the bigger the muscle the more disturbance will be seen. This disorder can not be overcome by sorting the baby. Sorting babies can actually make a baby's neck injury and experience a more severe disorder. It is better if you bring your baby to see a pediatrician for further examination. The pediatrician will ask the mother about these symptoms further. The doctor will also examine the condition of your child's neck directly. If necessary, your child may also be asked to undergo a special examination, such as x-rays. The doctor will explain the results of the examination to Mother. If it is true that there is a disruption in the baby's muscles or bones, your child may be given certain actions or referred to an appropriate specialist doctor to overcome them. This disorder needs to be overcome immediately because it can interfere with the process of eating and breastfeeding which is very important for him. The faster it is overcome, the better the results that can be seen.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
