    Thanks Nala. Zoe is leaning to the left all the time! I try to turn her but without fail she finds her way back there. It's driving me crazy! I might try the movin of te bassinette etc and see if that helps. How did you know you should visit a physio? Was it because of the favouring of one side or more of a complex issue that Braydon has?

    I love how you keep spamming the forum lol. I agree with km, maybe take him to the doctor and as stupid as you might feel at least it will be peace of mind which can only be a good thing.

    Spot on Amy! I think because we have wanted these little treasures for so long we feel guilty automatically when something isn't "right".

    Nah, he has a more complex issue. When he was 2 weeks old I noticed a massive lump on his neck which is called sternocleidomastoid tumour. Not a tumour at all, just the name, I have since found it is also called Torticollis. And Yes my heart dropped when they first told me. It is caused either in the womb by being in one position the whole time (which I think is our case as he never moved) or birth trauma.

    So it is a massive tightening of his neck muscles so he can't move his head to one side and his neck head are on a massive tilt. So we have to continually stretch out the short muscles and once he has more balance we then start to strengthen the muscles so he can hold his head correctly. Should take 6 months to fix, otherwise surgery or botox.

    Hi all had some tech issues but I'm all caught up now.

    Nic, I say do what ever you need to enjoy you baby girl. She will eventually get into a routine so no need to put any unneeded stress on yourself.

    I agree with turning the basinet. I alternate what way I lay William during the night to get the same effect.

    Nala I'm sure he is fine ( babies have a good way of letting us know if something is wrong) but do agree that to be 100% and to put your mind at ease you should give the medical hotline a call.

    Sl hoping mr O is feeling better. Your really over due for some good times

    So I've decided to loosely start stretching out Orlando's feeds...I say loosely because he's still sick so feeding a little more and shorter feeds. This comes from my paediatrician saying earlier in the week to make him wait so I'm not feeding any more often then 3 hourly (from start of last feed to next). So last night he went 3 hrs 25 mins, then 2 hrs 50 mins then 3 hrs 10 mins. He then woke up after 1 and a half hours wanting more....that was an hour ago and I still haven't feed so now we're nearly up to 2 and a half hours but I'm not letting him have a big cry as I said he is still sick so don't want to stress him out too much!

    Babies breastfeed a lot more frequently when they are sick to gain additional antibodies from the milk. Definitely best to stretch the feeds out when he's fully recovered, hopefully not long away!
