Tips and advice on Flat Head Syndrome (Plagiocephaly):
It is medically advised that babies are placed on their back while they sleep as this is safest position for them. This position can create pressure on the back of their head and so Flat Head Syndrome may become an issue. Young babies when they rest can have a side which they prefer to sleep on, this means that natural pressure can be put and focused on one side of their head.
Here are some extra and simple ways to help manage this:
Re-position your baby's head while they are resting, so that sometimes they face left and sometimes they face right. So very gently switching the side they face when they go down to sleep.
When your baby is ready, start practicing Tummy Time with them, this helps strengthen their shoulder and neck muscles for better control of their head.
