My daughter favors her right side and is always looking right and sleeping on the right side of her head. We were at the doctor's office the other week and she noticed that her head was flattening out but wasn't too concerned. She said just to do stretches with her and it will loosen up her muscles. Anyways..I put a bow on her head this morning and the band around her head allowed me to see how FLAT her head is on the right side. Omg! She has soooo much hair so I have never really noticed before.
We having been doing stretches with her and she has been looking left more often. My question is.... is this common? Is this a big deal.. will it round out?
Re: flat head
These are just my suggestiions. It will round out over time but even the kids with slight flats still have them (the hair just covers) and my friends with NICU babies who are now 2,3, or 4 still have flattish heads, nature doesn't exert pressure that changes the shape. While still so little you can make that difference by changing things naturally so baby turns her head the other way more to help.
