just found out that my 8 week old baby girl has torticollis just woundering if any of your children have suffered from it & if so what did you go through & did your baby get rid of it with help

yes my son had torticollis, and the only thing that helps fix it is by doing special stretches, and my son had to go to a physical therapist....whichever way the baby doesn't want to turn her head is the side you need to put all her toys on, so that it encourages her to turn her head and stretch out that neck muscle....but mainly she should have been recommended to see a physical therapist....if it goes on too long it can cause one side of her head to go flat, which trust me you do NOT want to have to deal with too!!! Hope this helps and best of luck, I am here if you want to know more or need support.(oh! and yes it did get fixed because of the exercises)
