We went and saw a Pediatric Physical Therapist yesterday because Mason has some Torticollis and Plagiocephaly.....which just means that his neck muscles are tight on one side so he always wants to look to the right and because of that, he is getting a flat spot on one side of his head. So we have to do neck stretches with him 3 times a day and lots and lots of tummy time. We're also supposed to always position him when he is on the floor/in his crib with the "interesting" things on his left side so he'll want to look to the left more often. Has anybody dealt with this before? Any ideas for positioning that I could try? I feel like I am constantly trying to adjust him so he'll want to look to his left, but he still manages to find things on his right that are fun to look at!
The PT also said no more bouncer for the time being. That wouldn't be a big deal except he has ONLY been able to sleep in his bouncer during the day and won't stay asleep if he is laying on his back or we are holding him. We think it is because of Reflux and when he is on his back it keeps him awake, so the bouncer worked because he was on an incline. I'm trying him right now in his crib with a pillow underneath the mattress so he is on an incline, but so far, he hasn't been sleeping. No naps during the day equals a grumpy baby and a grumpy mommy. Anybody had this issue too?
