Re: My DD's face

Just took my 8 week old in for her check up. I was concerned that she always held her head to the right. She can turn her head to the left. Thought it might be toricollis and I asked Dr to check.

Dr. said it wasn't torticollis because she can turn it to the left. If it were torticollis, she would not have been able to do it.

He said it was a preference she was developing not a physical issue. Not uncommon but should be watched to avoid deforming skull.

That said, he did advise to do tummy time, hold her in ways that make her want to look the other way, change the side of the crib we put her down on, etc. All things to encourage her to look in the non-prefered side.
