What is head bobbing means. Worried about that in my 10 m old otherwise normal healthy baby with development milestones met. Ped assured not infantile s?

Though there are: Many fairly benign causes of head-bobbing I'd be uncomfortable reassuring any parent without pediatric neurological & ophthalmological evaluations.

If it has been there for years and unchanged, then that would be more reassuring. I would think you would be best served by having a physician take a look at it, ...Read more
