Head shape

My LG is 11 weeks, and prefers to look to the right (no matter if she is on tummy, back etc) Her head is starting to go flat on that side because of it. What can I do?

It's great that you noticed this early on! The same thing happened with my LG. I would say to immediately bring it up to her pediatrician and remain on top of it. I got a referral for physical therapy and also started to do exercises and stretching at home due to discovering that my LG has a condition called torticollis where the neck muscle is weak, causing her to prefer looking to one side and developing a flat spot. I also worked on repositioning her head while she sleeps. There has been some improvement but we're also getting her evaluated for a doc band and will decide on what's best. The earlier you're able to start with interventions, the better.
