Floppy head/neck

I noticed recently that My 6mo who usually has amazing head control all of a sudden can’t keep his head up when he’s tired… It doesn’t sound too bad, but it’s to the point where he’s completely flipping forward and I have to reposition him in the crib. It’s really freaking me out and I’m scared he’s going to suffocate! Could there be something going on?

Hey @NicoleWhiting01- so glad you reached out here to ask. If you’re noticing a very obvious change in physical abilities or endurance, it’s important to reach out to your pediatrician to rule out any medical reason for the regression. It may be nothing, but it’s a good idea to get it checked out

I agree with @tots-allison. I also know some kids will fall asleep like this occasionally and eventually go back to what they were doing but it’s always good to talk to a pediatrician for a noticeable change.
