Q.

Babys eyes roll back when put on back

When I lie my baby down (12 weeks) her eyes roll back & sometimes also independently move.

I initially thought it was a once off disorientation thing - but notice to my horror that it happens almost every time that I lie her down from an upright position.

Please advise - I am really worried...

Paediatrician

I am not sure from your description of what is happening here if this is normal or not. So just to be sure ask your paediatrician to see your baby and find out if there is anything to worry about. I must say that I am inclined to think that this is quite normal but would be much happier if she is seen by her doctor.
