Tummy time and repositioning are two important interventions that may help when you begin to notice early signs of a flattened head shape.
Tummy time includes any activity where your baby’s head is not flat against a surface, encouraging head and neck control and relieving pressure.
Repositioning is a focused effort to change the placement of your child’s head to reduce the risk of flat spots. For example, laying your baby’s head on the left side at bedtime tonight and on the right side tomorrow.
