    Hello-I would like some opinions from some parents. I am a mother of 3 boys ages 2, 5 and 10. I had normal to premature pregnancies etc. and I have way more than my fair share of illnesses etc. However my concern is with the little girl I watch. She is 7mths old, EXTREMELY FUSSY.. all the time nothing makes her happy unless you are holding her. The mom has tried every formula possible, different bottles, etc dr says not colic..I've noticed the past few days that she only holds her head in 1 direction and even to move it will only move it it favoring that side. Should I mention this to the mom as a concern, I don't think she's developing correctly which I have tried to hint around this, however the dr said shes underweight etc but said she's fine because she's gaining weight?! This is her first child and I dont want to scare or make her mad, but I just don't think she's "normal' to speak. What should I do or say?
