A 6 month old baby should not have a stiff neck. Was she born with this problem? If so, this is a condition known as torticollis and is usually due to a spasm of one of the neck muscles. She needs treatment by a physiotherapist for this condition. If she has just suddenly developed a stiff neck then she must be seen ASAP by a paeditrian in case she has meningitis!
