Signs and Symptoms That Could Indicate Infant Brain Damage

Your baby should be monitored closely for signs of brain damage if there are any problems with labor and delivery. Things to watch for include:

  • Difficult feeding
  • Distorted or abnormal facial features
  • Inability to sleep lying down
  • Seizures
  • Cannot move eyes or neck

If your child displays abnormal behavior or delays, contact your doctor immediately. Prompt medical treatment can help avoid further complications from infant brain damage.
