    I'm sorry. Sometimes they just fail to thrive. I had one that his head was pulling under and he was actually doing flips, had no control over his body. I put duct tape around his neck so that it would quit drawing under and he is now 1 month old. So, if you have another one doing that, you might try the duct tape.
