My baby has a stiff neck. What is the best position to lay her in?

Complicated Question. If your baby has already been examined by their pediatrician, and the stiff neck determined to not be related to meningitis, they should still be put to sleep on their back. When awake, there are certain stretching exercises and positioning that can help, but they should be individualized to your baby. Your doctor or a physical therapist will guide you.
Back . The best position for infants when sleeping is on their back in order to decrease their risk of sids. However, when they are awake and being closely monitored, it may be beneficial to lay them on their stomachs for brief periods of time. If the stiff neck is continuing they should be evaluated by their pediatrician as sometimes physical therapy is helpful.
