My son was diagnosed with tort when he was 2 months old, first by
the pediatrician and then evaluated and treated by a PT. Does he
have a checkup coming up? I would probably point it out to your ped
first, who can refer you to a pediatric PT. Then the PT will assess
the tort at your first appointment. I understand your concern
though, my son wasn't a fan of the stretches and exercises when he
was tiny and didn't know much else. I couldn't imagine doing it now
that he's well over one year old. It might take longer on an older
baby (my son was in PT for 2.5 months, I'm not sure if that's
average or not). But you have to do what you have to do, he'll get
used to it eventually and it will be worth it in the end. Good luck!
