Track how much tummy-time you give to your child and monitor your baby’s head for the development of any Flat Spots
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.

or Positional Plagiocephaly
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.
Thats why it’s important for parents to be aware of their baby’s head shape. Simply use the app to take a photo of your baby’s head from above and get an assessment of any flat areas.
Medical Quality Technology
in Your Pocket
Our app, Little Angel Medical, allows you to regularly monitor how much tummy-time your
baby receives as well assess your baby's head shape in order to detect the onset of any flat
spots. Backed by published clinical algorithms and developed by board certified physicians, Little Angel Medical allows for more frequent monitoring than standard clinic visits leading to
an earlier assessment and therefore earlier referral to a physician that can suggest preventive
measures based on clinical practice guidelines.
If a flat spot is developing, then Little Angel Medical will not only allow for regular assessments but will also provide easy access to information related to flat head syndrome and related exercises that can be done at home to help alleviate flat head syndrome. You'll also be able to track your baby's head shape over time and communicate your findings to your health care professional to ensure that everything is progressing well.
