Shots and X-Rays

So little Mr. Q had his 4 month check up today. I've been wanting this day to come for a few weeks now. We noticed that Q's head is misshapen from favoring his right side. We tried promoting him to turn the other way (like Xmas lights on the other side of the crib) and it seemed to be getting better. Then I noticed that his head would always be resting on his left shoulder.

He could keep it up but not very long.

The doctor noticed it too. His muscles on one side of his neck isn't developing properly. Yay.

I felt so bad for him. He was overdue on a nap and a bottle. Got his 4 months shot, then we had to go and wait to get X-rays. Poor bebe. He was miserable. They were stretching his little neck in ways he hated.

So it's pretty common thing that happens to babies. We have to do physical therapy. Hopefully we can fix this soon. It's just been a long day.

But he's healthy other than that! His weight is in the 70% and his height is 52%.

Yay for heathy babies!


  1. Aww. Poor guy. Therapy will help him and he will do great. You are an awesome mama.

  2. Oh Poor dude that's a long day and poor mama! I bet with a lil pt he'll be feelin good ;)

  3. I'm glad there is nothing wrong, just some exercises needed. :) He sure is a cutie pie.


  4. My little girl had the same thing!  Torticollis and the whole flat head thing.  We ended up doing physical therapy and about a month of the dreaded helmet wear.  She ended up growing out of it on her own and now, @18 months - is doing just fine!  Try not to worry too much, although I know that's easier said than done!
