change in head shape
Created by Updated on Apr 20, 2017
Hi, my baby is 4 months old now. Her head is slightly flattened at one side bcoz she sleep in only one direction. After I noticed it , I made her to sleep in opposite direction. But the shape still look the same flattened. If this will come to normal when she grows up?

The condition what u have mentioned is called as positional plagiocephaly or flat head. Children are prone to sleeping on the side which is most comfortable to them. And hence results in this condition as the skull of the baby is soft. U should change baby's head position. change will not be visible in a day or two. It takes time! Remember baby should rotate the head to both the sides.
