Q.

Babies

Hi, I have a very healthy 7 month old granddaughter, In the past week we have noticed that she dips her head to the right when sitting up and looking at you, she does not do this to the left side at all. She was 6 weeks prem and only weighed 1.9kg''s at birth....does she have a problem or are we worrying for nothin???
Thanx!

Paediatrician

This may just be a temporary mannerism, but sometimes babies do this when they have an eye problem.It would be best to ask your paediatrician to see her and to decide if all is normal with her eyes.
