Health Issues

Plagiocephaly Is there any treatment?

To prevent your baby from developing a flattened skull, change his position often. Put your baby on his tummy to play several times a day. Use a firm play surface such as a carpeted floor or an activity mat on the floor. "Tummy time" will also help your baby:

  • Develop early control of his head
  • Strengthen the muscles in the upper body
  • Learn to roll over
  • Reach for objects
  • Learn to crawl

You can also put your baby on his side to play. To keep your baby on his side, put a firm rolled-up towel or blanket behind his back.
