I'm scared, advice please. Torticollis UPDATE!!!
So today was the home school book fair here in town. DH and I went together, Abi was in her wrap. She fell asleep and her head leaning to her left like it always does. I had a vendor ask me if her head always did that. I told her yes, since she was a little baby. She told me we should go talk to the chiropractor, who also has a booth, since the chiropractor had told her how one of her twins had a crooked neck because of the way she was laying in the womb.
So we went to the chiropractors booth and i told her what the other vendor said. She said that her daughter was like that because her sister was on top of her and that made her have a crook in her neck when she was little. She asked if she asked if her head always went to the left like that, i told her yes, since she was born and if you try to fix it, she moves it right back, even if she's sleeping.
She said it was probably the way she had been sitting on it in the womb. She asked me how she was sitting in the womb at the end of the pregnancy. I told her that she was head down at my 28 week appointment and until she was born and that she never turned or really even flipped over after that.
I told her that she will only lay on her right side to nurse. She cries and cries if i try to feed her with her laying on her left side.
She asked if she could examine her, We said sure and she ran her little tool on her neck and said it Was pinched. She said that Abi has something called "Torticollis" and that we need to have her adjusted asap and that Torticollis is what causes some babies to have to wear helmets for skull deformities. She said that because it isn't sitting straight on her spine, gravity will make her bones shift.
I'm scared. I have no clue what to do or where to start looking for information. I feel horrible because i thought she was just quirky.
Should i take her to a chiropractor? To her doctor? Both? I need any help I can get please.
