The past few days my daughter has been exhibiting strange

Customer Question

hi, the past few days my daughter has been exhibiting strange behavior but only in her stroller. She will lean her head down and look out of it and then snap back into it. It does not happen anywhere else just in the stroller. We have been noticing this for 3 days now, happens in the morning and at night. She sits up fine, is active, playful and seems on target in all other areas. What could this be?

Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

How long does she do it at each episode?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
i would say its a few seconds
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
when it happens she does it a few times consistently. But if she was never in the stroller, it wouldn't have happened.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
always to the same side ( right side)

its more like she leans her head down with arms out, and seems glassed over but then snaps right back into it

Thank you for the input.
Children often learn a new act and repeatedly do it for several days.
At this age, babies learn new behaviors and enjoy it..
When the babies learn another activity, they can forget the previous ones.
As it happens only in the stroller, it is not concerning.
You should not worry.

even though she seems out of it when she does this odd behavior? Her body language looks down and she is clearly not focused, it happens nowhere else you dont think it could be a sign of something serious?

As it does not happen at any other places, please try to avoid keeping her on the stroller for a few days to check whether she repeats the behavior.
