A. Hello ..I don’t think somchild has some issue as such and vacuum will not cause harm over neck but to avoid missing anything we must consult your pediatrician who will examine the baby and see if there is some mass on the left side of neck and has any issues or not..when you go for vaccination then you show your baby to him ...nothing urgent

A. if he is taking feed from both sides nothing to worry about. Laying baby flat on tummy is tummy time. It can be done as early as day 1.   tummy time should be done after 1 hour of feeding. baby should not be hungry, crying, or sleepy when you do it,  do it for 1 minute everyday,  slowly increase frequency and  time if baby enjoys it. if baby starts crying , make him supine. encourage the baby while on tummy. it helps in relieving gases, strengthening neck and shoulder muscles.
