There are a few things which you can do while you are waiting for
appointments and braces:
1) Avoid placing your child for any length of time in car
seats/infant swings or anything that will perpetuate a curved spine.
2) Try to gently massage your child's back - the convex side in
3) Since your baby is so small it should be easy for your husband or
yourself to carry her/him in a snuggly (with her/his back against your chest). Children love to be held and at the same time you will be applying traction to her/his little spine.
4) Sleep position: there is a "right" position. Avoid laying your
baby in a supine position (meaning face up), studies have shown that this 'may' contribute to infantile scoliosis. Try to lay your baby in a prone position (face down). I know that if you lay the baby face
down there is risk of SIDS - just be close by when you do. I think
that by putting the baby on her/his tummy while she/he is awake is a good idea - it will encourage her/him to use her/his back muscles.
