Panicking / head movement
Reply with quote

Ok panicking wont help. His dad's not concerned but he never is. Wink Tonight Aden after rolling onto his tummy, through his head back and then let it drop forward. Ok sounds fine, but then he started doing it really fast and wouldnít stop. We could get his attention and he would smile (ok maybe Iím overreacting) but he kept doing it. Now heís doing it while in my arms.
So is this something to worry about, or is he just playing. I have 3other children and well Adenís is Aden. He is so sweet and I guess Iím just having a little panic havenít visited the panic world of a while.
I know our kids sleep a funny way, well some of them (head right back or folded in half) is this something that is just a common thing to babyís with Ds, maybe others have had it with their typical kids anyone??? Thanks for reading

First off try not to panic(yeah right) Do you have a video recorder? I would try to get it on tape. Then I would show it to your DR. It may be something simple but it really should be checked out. If you can show the DR the tape then you can show them exactly what you are talking about.Good luck and keep us posted.

no experience here but i agree with Heather - get the video and show the dr. it never hurts to be on the safe side although he's probably just playing. keep us updated, aj

I agree with everyone else about the video, although if he's doing it pretty consistantly I wouldn't bother with it unless you have the camera charged and ready. I'd just head to the doctor with him.

My Angela does sleep with her head way back. If not that, then on her side in a tailor position (legs crossed like she's sitting on the floor) and folded in half. (all while on her side. OUCH!)

Oh no! I was reading the first post from Heather a regular and then another regular, my heart sank ladyís I no you said not to but the camera1 (we did try too) but he kept stopping. Then I seen your post Leah all was riding on that and you said it too. I think my heart just fell on the dam floor.
Full of nerves now, I was worried and tried to make light of it. So none of your kids do this??
Now Iím trying not to laugh, nerves have just stepped up a notch. Aden scared me this the seizer movements and it turned out ok just the reflux, so hopefully this is nothing. But it just doesnít look like something a baby would do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
Thanks I think deep down I know you guy's have said use the camera loosely

Well, I'm a 'when in doubt check with the doctor' person, but I will tell you that Charlie does something similar. He started shaking his head as if saying "no." I think at first he did it because he figured out it was a cool thing he could do with his head, so he would do it over and over again. Now he only does it when bored, or when trying to avoid eating. Anyway, I'll pray that Aden's head shake is just a behavior. I'm sorry it's so scary for you right now. Let us know what you find out.
