Flat Head in Babies


In the 1990’s, following on from very conclusive research, doctors started recommending that all babies be put to sleep on their backs to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) or cot death. Since the start of this campaign, the incidence of SIDS has dropped by almost 40%. This was a major discovery and since then the advice has been that babies should sleep on their backs. However, the slight downside of this is that there has been a related increase in the number of children who have developed positional plagiocephaly (or positional flat head syndrome).

Cherished Baby and Child will give you all the information you’ll need to identify if your little one is at a higher risk of plagiocephaly, how to prevent it and how to treat it.
