Post subject: Stiff neck in the mornings
does anyone have any experience of this?

Isaac has taken to sleeping on his left side, and whimpers a bit in his sleep mostly from about 4am. When he wakes for the day, me or hubby go in to him, and it's as if he's stuck! His head is resting on its left side, and he is frantically trying to see me, but only moving his eyes up to the right. He doesn't seem able to turn his head. It goes within about 20 minutes of getting him up, but its still pretty worrying... any ideas?

Not sure what the thought is over in the UK but it now becoming more accepted in NZ to take infants, even from a young age, to a cyropractor (spelling?). Sounds weird I know. Hunter was having trouble looking to his right and using and raising that arm. It only took a couple of sessions to loosen him up, helped his colic too would you believe. Made a real difference. Very Happy

we saw the paediatrician and he said it is because of Isaac's development stage. He thinks it will stop as soon as Isaac can roll over properly onto his tummy.

Does seem to have improved though since he's been having physio on his neck for the torticollis Very Happy
