Hey Everyone! Happy New Year to you! May it be filled with many blessings and great moments/memories!
As the title reads my baby girl was diagnosed with Torticollis. She has her second physical therapy appointment today. There was a few weeks break in between her first due to the holidays. The exercises seem to help alittle so far since we caught it fairly early. LO is 3 months old now. However, I feel terrible doing the exercises. She screams bloody murder the whole time. A pain cry, not just a fussy cry. Tears streaming down. I hate it. I absolutely can't stand it. I feel like I'm hurting her. I keep telling myself that it has to be done to help her, but my heart breaks. I feel like a terrible mother. I will talk to physical therapist more about it today. Tummy time is also a struggle. Crying whole time. I've tried toys, lights, laying her on my chest which makes her happy for a few seconds until the neck starts bothering her.
Any advice? Anyone struggling with this too?
My Husband and I feel the torticolis is from her delivery. No one caught her. She fell onto the delivery bed with no doctors or nurses in the room. 8in to 12 in drop. May be contacting a lawyer on this one.
