Figured I would start my own thread. Taking pictures of this kid was hard.

Yeah looks like Myah has plagiocephaly and possibly torticollis to my untrained eye. The plagiocephaly is obvious though. I could be completely wrong about the torticollis. Obviously, I'm no expert lol.

I can definitely see the tilt of Myah's head. Lily's looks a little different, though. Lily's jaw line is a little bit lopsided, like she has more baby fat on one side than the other. It was especially noticeable when she was brand new. Im not doubting you or anything, just letting you know how it presented in Lily. Maybe take her to another pedi for a second opinion from her original pedi.

Here is a PDF showing the exact same exercises and stretches we do with Lily as recommended by her PT. I would wait until you talk to a pediatric PT before you start them with Myah, as doing so if they are unneeded can cause more harm than good. Only a PT can properly diagnose Myah's issue with the tilt.

I'm not an expert nor do I know anything about it, but it looks like it to me too.

Her head looks like Piper's, who does have plagiocephaly. I'd definitely mention it at her next appt.

Her next one isn't until 9 months. Is that too long to wait??? Just really frustrated no one is listening to me.

Oh and a random thing on the head tilt... she only does it when looking in a mirror and not anything else.

Yeah, I think that is too long a wait. According to all the doctors we've seen, there is a small window to get this done. I would call Monday to set something up.

Oh, and I'm sorry no one is listening to you.. that would frustrate me as well. Have you talked to your ped. about it and they blew if off? If they did, maybe it's time to find a new ped.

Yeah, I've been hearing the same about the small window of time when it comes to plagiocephaly and the helmet for it working at its full potential. Definitely get her in ASAP. If they blow you off, go somewhere else.

This is mostly a cosmetic thing just so you know. Im not downplaying it at all, just letting you know It would have to be far worse to cause brain development problems. This is still an important thing to fix now though.
