My infant is 2 weeks old and I've been bad about supporting her head so that it has flopped back or forward. Worried I did damage..how do I know??

4 doctors agree

In brief: Mgt

It is important to support her head, but if the head went only in one direction, it is probably alright.
I would suggest a follow up with your PCP. If there is any change in her usual behavior or feeding pattern, please see the ED.
