DD nearly 1 keeps toppling over backwards - losing balance

DD has been walking now for around 4 weeks and has had no problems. For about the last 3 days she keeps kind of losing her balance and toppling over backwards, almost as if someone has a string attached to her head and pulling it back. Should I be concerned about this? She has got a bit of a cold but no other symptoms

Maybe its something to do with walking quite young, babies heads are usually out of proportion to rest of body, so maybe its a weight balance issue that will resolve itself, i guess at that age u have to walk round with them constantly anyway to catch them.

She has started walking quite young but she has been on for nearly 4 weeks and it is just the last couple of days she has been toppling

In that case i'd speak to GP or HV, always better to get these things checked. Maybe ear infection or something like. I'm sure it'll be nothing, try not to worry, but if its come on all of sudden then no harm in checking. Most GPs do telephone consultations, save u the hassle of getting out the door.

Its most likely to do with the current illnes she has, but because little pebs has had so many problems in the past I would get her checked.
