My 4 month old leans her head to her right always. whether she is sitting laying or being held. I just noticed this a few days ago. Does anyone have any advice on this? Thanks

My 8 month started doing that and soon after she began running fever. We took her to the ER and she had a double ear infection. Just keep an eye on it, it could be completely normal but then again it could be something else.

She may have fluid behind one of her ear drums which could cause vertigo or basically her equillibrium would be off. I would make an appt to check it out. I know carson had a preference when he would sleep it would always be to the right but as he got older and older he gained more control of his head while he slept.
