Answer: Hi dear Hi dear,To avoid flat head n also use a hollow pillow in cradle. You can make one using a soft cotton cloth don't make it very hard I don't like the ones available in stores ...encourage Ur baby to look on both sides.and also try tummy time it also helps in avoiding flat spot it will help Ur baby hold his head up.might start by laying your baby across your lap on their tummy In the beginning, newborn tummy time should consist of two to three 3-minute sessions daily. As he gets older and stronger, gradually increase the length of time, working up to a total of 20 minutes a day.By about 4 months, your baby should be able to lift his chest off the floor and lean on his elbows with his head upright. He may even be able to lift his arms off the floor, arch his back, and kick his feet. As your baby stretches and pushes on the floor, he may accidentally lean to one side, fall over, and roll from his belly onto his back.this will improve motor skills,head control,avoids flat spots,and strengthens shoulders
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.

Question: my baby has flat head. what to do for get back in round shape??
Answer: You can help your baby's head return to a more rounded shape by altering his position while he's asleep, feeding and playing. Changing your baby's position is called counter-positioning or repositioning. It encourages the flattened areas of your baby's head to reshape naturally. For your baby's safety, always put him on his back to sleep. Besides that I used to place head of my baby on a pillow made out of Rai. It helped in moulding the shape of her head.
