There’re many children having head that are flat on the back, which makes their forehead seem to be uplift towards. It’s not difficult to prevent the situation. Moreover, it doesn’t affect brain developments or put pressure on the brain.

The cause of flat head

The head deformity is easiest to see when you look at your children from higher places. You can recognize the distension that bust out from the back of the head. The cheek bones seem to protrude and the ears seem to be pushed towards.

Some children are born with flat head, which is due to the pose they lay in the womb: the head presses on mother’s hipbone.

Nonetheless, in most cases, children often get flat head from lying in one pose in the first 2 months. Because of the soft skull, the lack of turning, when children lie in one pose in a long time, their head will get flat. Besides, the natural pose of infants is lying on the back, for which children easily have a pit on the back of the head.

Children who have flat head had difficulties in moving the neck. It’s also called whiplash injury (tightened neck muscles). Infants who have the syndrome need physical treatments.

Be flexible

Alternate lying poses for babies so that they can turn their head to the directions of sounds or movements. You can move their beds for convenience. Do not let children use pillows or beds that are too soft as they also affect the location of the head.

Lying on the back is still the best poses

Despite flat head, specialists recommend parents letting children lie in the back when sleeping in order to reduce the chance of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Besides, you shouldn’t put anything on their faces when they sleep, and should avoid smoking and ensure that babies sleep on a flat surface in order not to affect their breathing.
