Don't worry it will get in shape by itself even my son had the same shape but in course of time it became normal

Hey Sandhya.. baby pillows are in market, but please don't experiment with your baby's head. I consulted my paedetrician over that and he told me it will be perfect in 3 months and it was... don't worry about it... It will get okay by itself... trust me.. its something not to bother on too much

Hi there... along with pillow modification... please do one more thing.. while giving bath to baby (warm water)or while giving head massage to him.. try pressing his head with both hands as if we try to make a round ball from clay... u have to be very gentle but consistent for up to like some months. Small babies don't have mature bones in skull.. its more like ping pong balls.. after 6-7 months bones starts calcifying to hardening slowly.. So ur job here is like a potter.. u can actually shape ur child's head.

Hello, Mustard pillows are the best! U may buy organic mustards abt 1. 3 kgs and make a pillow.. It shouldn't be too lose or tight.. Something like bean bag.

Hi Sandhyaza, you may use the circular pillow that is puffed from the sides but with a little depth in between. Or you may try to put him to sleep in either left or right position. You may also use the pillow made of mustard seeds, as that pillow will take the shape of the baby's head.
