Is there any treatment?
To prevent your baby from developing a flattened skull, change his position
often. Put your baby on his tummy to play several times a day. Use a firm
play surface such as a carpeted floor or an activity mat on the floor.
"Tummy time" will also help your baby:
- Develop early control of his head
- Strengthen the muscles in the upper body
- Learn to roll over
- Reach for objects
- Learn to crawl
You can also put your baby on his side to play. To keep your baby on
his side, put a firm rolled-up towel or blanket behind his back.
