Hello, don't really know if I'm posting this in the correct spot but here it goes.. My 2month old daughter was diagnosed with Torticollis & Plagiocephaly.. We've been in PT for about a month now & it doesn't seem to be working that well & her head shape has only mildly changed.. I wish I knew how to post pics on here so everyone could see what I'm talking about but I believe there is something else going on with my daughters head.. It's long & got that way almost over night.. It's long enough to fit in the palm of my hand.. I've taken her for a CT scan & everything came back normal.. I was just wondering if any other mommies that might be dealing with or have dealt with this have any advise for me..?

Physiotherapy is the best way out. However. your concern is understandable as you are a mother. tummy time is very important in this regard. Try tummy time with your newborn for small periods and try to build up the time that your baby can tolerate being in this position. limit the amount of time that your baby spends sitting or lying in any piece of equipment (car seat, bouncer seat, swing, etc). Alternate the end of the crib in which your baby sleeps. Alternate the end where you place your baby's head on the changing table. Place toys on different sides of the stroller, bouncer seat and swing to encourage your baby to turn his head to both sides. Moreover, if baby always turns to right try putting things on left side. I hope these exercises will help you. At this stage. mothers need reassurance as they are very worried about their children.
