My little one had a flat head. I found a pillow that helps with flat heads.

Thank you ☺️ 💖 and yeah she doesn't she does her tummy time also sits up with someone. And some one is usually always holding her if she isn't sleeping

Lots of tummy time. Try to restrict the amount of time the baby lies on her back, on the back of her head. Even baby in a sling would help

I don't have any input, as I haven't had my baby yet. Just wanted to say that your little one is so incredibly adorable 😍

My baby had the FLATTEST little head for several months and I was SO stressed out about it. Her doctor assured me that it was fine and that her head would be perfectly normal once she started rolling over in her sleep, but I was SO PARANOID about it - I didn’t think it was ever going to go away. It developed around 2.5-3 months and kept getting worse, and I was convinced that we would have to buy her a helmet, but her doctor was right! Once she started rolling over in her sleep and sleeping on her stomach, it completely went away, and now she has a perfectly round little noggin. Don’t worry!

Flat head is back of the head. Ir happens unfortunately to kids that didnt get tummy time and able to move when they wanted. I'm not saying keep her always on her belly bc then that well have adverse side effects. Just as she grows start with 5 mins tummy time a couple times of day, and then gradually increase after several days or weeks. You'll know when she's ready for more, she'll move more. and has she gets more familiar. You'll be be fine luv

Girl, I was so worried about that too. Every time we saw her doctor I asked about her head and she would tell me it would shape out. Once baby starts sleeping and rolling in all sorts of positions it’ll shape out!

There's other things besides tummy time you can do to help ease your worries. Wearing baby helps to prevent it as well as alternating baby's sleep direction in her crib at night. Like one night she faces east the next she faces west.

Her pediatrician will bring up to you if she’s starting to get a flat spot and if it’s something to be concerned about! Yes tummy time helps but I disagree with some of the other comments. No it isn’t guaranteed she’ll be fine if she does tummy time. And not all flats spots round out by themselves, many don’t. Just make all the necessary precautions that you can and don’t stress too much about it! If she happens to start getting a flat spot just talk to her pedi and they’ll put you at ease with what to do and what it could be. My daughter had a flat spot that started out small and the cause was nothing related to tummy time or her being on her back too much! Btw your little girl is adorable😍
