I keep feeling bad that I didn't catch it sooner and feeling like I've harmed him permanently. I just want to know that everything will be okay.

You need a chiropractor who treats kiddos - check icpa.com for a doc near you. Chiropractic is very effective with infant torticollis.
I'm a chiropractor who had a baby with congenital muscular torticollis that was pretty severe. Chiropractic and a lot of stretching... and 5 years later, no one would ever know she had torticollis. It's a long road and a lot of work but it's not too late! I've seen many patients who waited much longer than you.

I am sure you have spent hours googling everything torticollis, so I thought I would invite you to check out www.mytortsupport.com
I started the site a few months back in effort to source as much tort info in one place and allow parents to read other stories and connect with each other -
I am 30 and have unresolved Torticollis - still tilt, have moderate asymmetry of my facial features, and just want to to help parents do everything they can to resolve their children, before school starts.... anyhow - stop by if you have time - there are a lot of moms who have been where you are now - and tort is definitely something you can fix when found so early.
