Vestibular dysfunction in infant???
When my daughter was little (2 months old or so) she was scared to go up and down the stairs (while being on my hands). She would cling very closely to me. She seemed to outgrow this problem now. She is 9 months old and has the following issues:
1.) elevators: she is afraid of riding it. she would cling into me when elevator stops
2.) she was terrified of landing/take offs during our trip. She would again cling into me and cry.
3.) when I put her up above my head and then let her go (of course, always while always holding her) she would get scared also.
I contacted my pedi and she thinks it is normal and she will outgrow it. I am still worried. Are there any exercises I can do? Is OT needed at this point?
