Pediatrician 's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

How long your baby is doing this?
What is the developmental status of your baby?
Does he hold his neck?
Is he able to sit with some support?

Your baby definitely needs examination and further investigations post examination.

You may contact me with further details on the following URL:

Hope this helps.

Take care
