ANOTHER PROBLEM IS SHE CANT HOLD HER HEAD IN NORMAL POSITION FOR LONG TIME,MOSTLY SHE KEEPS HER NECK DOWN. 3RD PROBLEM IS WHILE SITTING HER SPINE IS CURVED,NOT STRAIGHT. MY PEDIATRICIAN REFERRED TO PHYSIOTHERAPIST,HAVE DONE SOME OF THE SESSIONS BUT THE PROGRESS IS NOT VERY MUCH NOTICEABLE. PEDIATRICIAN ADVISED TO FOLLOW WITH PEDIATRIC NEUROLOGIST. THIS SPECAILITY IS VERY RARE IN UAE, SO I HAVE DECIDED TO COME TO PAKISTAN. IF SOMEBODY CAN HELP ME TO SUGGEST AN EXPERIENCED DR IN LAHORE,FAISALABAD OR SARGODHA.OR OTHERWISE ANYWHERE.

Ur baby most likely suffered from asphyxia at birth due to prematurity. That's why his milestones are delayed. Ur baby need proper examination and some lab investigation by a paediatrician. Physiotherapy is very helpful in this problem but after proper lab investigation. If u want to consult me than book an appointment through marham website or follow this link

Thanks a lot for your reply Dr.
I have done some lab investigation for her also here in UAE, as I am coming at the end of this month so i will bring all of the reports along with me.
I will book appointment in the start of December. Dr Can you please mention some common lab investigation that will be required so that I can get it done from her as she has health insurance also.
