Hi all, was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this and could offer me any advice.
My son is 11 weeks old, at his 6 week check up the health nurse noticed he angles his head, his chin tilts to his left and the top of his head to the right. After consulting with doctor google I decided he had torticollis and made a physio appr. The gp meanwhile completely dismissed my concerns and said it would be impossible to tell at this stage.
I have had three visits to the physio and she has done little with him that I hadn't already started doing trough commen sense. However, at the last appt she commented on his facial assymetry which I had never noticed but now that I have it is obvious. One of his cheeks is lower and chubbier than the other. This is the side that he favours. The top and back of his head is a perfect shape.
Has anyone had a baby with asymmetry and how was it resolved? Just to clarify I think he is gorgeous, I'm jut worried about bullying andwould hate for him to resent me over something that could be fixed

We took DD1 to a chiropractor due to her flat head which also caused facial assymetry. She was only 12 weeks when we started and we noticed massive improvements within weeks. She is 4 now and you can not tell.
I wouldn't bother with Physio personally.

Try paediatric physio if you can.
