My first son had plagiocephaly and we are trying to prevent my second son from getting it. Does anyone know of any good products to help in the prevention of plagiocephaly? I bought a sleep positioner yesterday and tried it last night but Braden wouldn't have anything to do with it. He would not sleep with it. I have heard of the infant headbed, but I am not sure i want to spend the money on it if it doesn't work. Anyone else have any suggestions?

Really, the only thing I know of is to stay away from things like bouncers and swings. The more an infant is lying on his back, the more likely plag will happen. Lots of tummy time is best. Using things like slings or baby bjorns can also help, but if you choose a baby bjorn, be careful that the baby is old enough to hold his head up, and be careful not to use it for extended periods, because it'll damage the hips.
