Question: Hello Dr !! My name is Sharon. I have a baby boy who is 8 months 4 days today ; he is good and all ok but one thing about him is really making me worried is that is head shape is not round but big from one side and flat from the other side. My doctor told me there is no need to worry it will get round by it's own. So please suggest me things that will help my baby boy to have a round head .

Answer: Hi! It seems that the head is flattened but it will be OK after few months. You can make the baby sleep on mustard pillow, to make the head round. It becomes alright once the baby start rotating their heads on their own, so dont worry it will be alright. Hope this helps!

Question: My baby is 4 months old she has flat head from back side.. What can I do for round shape
Answer: Hello dear It occurs when a baby's head develops a flat spot due to pressure on that area. Baby's skull is soft when they are born. So when baby is sleeping only in one side then it leads to flat spot in that area. In most cases, flat spots usually go away when a baby starts sitting up on its own. Following treatment u can do to make ur babys head fine: 1. Change the head position while your baby sleeps.Reposition your baby's head (from left to right, right to left) when your baby is sleeping on the back. 2. Hold your baby more often. 3. Practice tummy time.
