Baby turning more towards right side. Has she sprained her neck?

My baby is 2 and a half months old. ..We think she might have sprained her neck or something. She is only turning more to here right side verses her left side. If we try to have her turn to her left side, she kind of whines and will turn right back and she s fine. She is not fussy or anything, but if it is a sprain or whatever. ..What can we do?

I dont think that your baby has any sprain.When the baby is in utero because of the space constraint they get cramped up in a particular position and post delivery they prefer being in the same position for few weeks.This will correct on its own you dont need to worry and hence allow her to position herself in ease.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
The turning towards right side may be due to prolonged positional problem.
And some times neck muscles like one side sternocleidomastoid muscle may be short leading to deviation of neck.
Change the position of head weekly once alternatively by keeping small pillows around the neck.
Consult your Pediatrician for the examination and advise.
Hope I have answered your query.
