My 8 month old baby developed head tic/jerk to left shoulder when excited or sleepy. Her pedia prescribed extra b complex. Will she outgrow this?

In brief: Depends

Keep meticulous follow up with your pediatrician for your infant's development and growth.
Keep a watch/diary of these events. Does she have a neck muscle that is tighter than the other side-muscular torticollis? If these events are more frequent and longer lasting-ask your pediatrician if a pediatric neurologist is worthwhile to consult with.
