When does a child get a complete control of his head movements?
Q: My 2 months and 3 weeks old son is not able to control his head (i.e. his head stands for a few seconds only). When will he learn to control his head? Is this a cause of alarm? Also, he likes to sleep only in one position. What should I do to make him sleep in both directions?
A:At 2 months the infants may not have a good head control as the usual age at which they achieve complete head control is 3 - 5 months. However, if his head appears excessively floppy and there is no improvement over next few weeks, consult a developmental paediatrician.
