I delivered carter by C-Section On july 26th 2010. C section was performed to reduce risk since my first son was an emergency C section so it was scheduled.
He came out a happy healthy baby 7 pds and 10 ounces.. and 21 and some inches long, Cant remember as I have two babys within a year of one another lol
About 4-8 weeks after he was born and he also had bad acid reflux, we noticed that he always tilted his head to the right, and then slowly noticed at about 4 months his right side of his head was becoming larger and the crown was turned and his head was "twisted". We took him to the IWK because we were concerned, they gave us info on physitherapy and considered it to be torticollis, We never went to physio as we knew this wasnt what it was since he had a large crown on the back of his head other than just a tilted neck.
We went to see his Family doctor who sent us for xrays just over a week ago, and the xrays had come back and we were told that a part of his skull had fused, and it caused the twisted head and tilted neck..
We did not get a CONFIRMED DIAGNOSIS, so we are going to call the family doc tomorrow who has the results. We have been referred to the NEUROSURGEON. And from everything we have been reading we can safely say our son has left lambdoid cranio(think is how you spell it)
We will find out more soon, but this is the start of our soon to be long journey I think.. Here is some photos of our son.
this is the most recent one, you can tell his right side is different in symetry to the left side
this is a photo of him at 3 months, you can notice he always has one side turned like hes looking somewhere else, but this is him looking at you.
this is a photo of the torticollis, which is a result from the twisted head causing weight on his little neck.
