Okay a little background first… My daughter is just over 4 months old. At her 2 month appointment her Dr had some concerns because she was turning her head mainly to one side and it was starting to get a little flat. He gave us some exercises to do with her and asked us to have her sleep facing the other way and she’s improved greatly and has perfect head control at this point. She now turns her head both ways and doesn’t favor one way or another now. Fast Foward to today… Today was her 4 month appointment. When we first arrived we were told her Dr was out for the day and we’d be seeing a Dr that was new to the practice. This Dr came in, didn’t introduce herself to my husband or I and started right away looking at the baby kind of funny. One of the first things she said was “I don’t like her head” She then went on to tell me I needed to stabalize her head when she slept and put blankets all around her head so she can’t move it. When I explained that she was rolling in her sleep she told me to do it anyways. This really bothers me because it doesn’t seem safe and I don’t want to risk possible suffocation or anything just because this Dr I’ve never met before thinks its a good idea. We don’t have another appointment for two more months and I’m not sure what to do at this point. I don’t think her head is nearly as flat as it was 2 months ago and I thought it had improved a bunch but I also don’t want to do something if she needs the extra help. My normal Dr is out for the rest of the week and I feel awkward questioning this lady’s advice if she’s right on. What would you do?
I included one of her recent pics to show her head isn’t really flat and as a thank you for making it all the way thru!
