Your Baby's Head Development

While your pediatrician will be checking your child's head development, it's the daily activities and attention from parents that really makes the difference in your baby’s health.

Flat Head Syndrome (or Plagiocephaly) is a condition where the back of a child's head becomes flat. One study reported finding that Flat Head Syndrome affected up to 48% of babies! Since babies can sleep on their backs from 12-15 hours a day and with the advent of swings, rockers, bouncers and car seats, it is no surprise how much at risk they are.

If the condition is detected after 4 months, or has become severe then your child may likely have to wear a specialized helmet consistently for several months to correct his or her head shape. To help prevent this, we've developed a new tool so you can check on your baby daily.

Early detection and preventative exercises are key

In most instances, if flat head syndrome is detected early, simple repositioning exercises, along with adequate tummy time, can correct the condition and potentially avoid the need for helmet therapy.
