Ugh i have snuzzlers in swing, car seat and my deluxe rock n play. Last week there were no flat spots anywhere (im paranoid and check all the time) but this week she has a quarter sized flat spot where her posterior fontanelle was. You cant see it she has so much hair.

I remember karmen getting a bald spot there but i dont remember if it was flat. She sleeps about 6 hours at night her first stretch so i guess i need tp start repositioning her head while shes sleeping.

Anyone else?

Archer's back side of his head is flat. He sleeps up to ten hours a night sometimes in his rock and play sleeper. No matter how many times I reposition his head he turns it back. It's very frustrating since he will not sleep anywhere else. His head is shaped odd now.

Jacob doesn't really have this problem, but Jackson had a very flat head and I worried and worried about it. His Pedi kept telling me that when he got more mobile and did more tummy time it would correct itself and it did in fact correct itself. he now has a beautiful round head. I would talk to your pedi but it should correct itself on it's own. And I didn't really do anything special like reposition his head while he slept or anything like that.

It is insane!!! It's not every night. But he averages 6 to 10 hours. Like I said in another comment I wouldn't believe it if I didn't experience it ! I think part of it is being formula fed and not sleeping much during the day. Now if I only went to bed when he did I'd be set instead I'm up late catching up on things.

Brandy have you talked to your pediatrician? I think some suggest the helmets now and others are more laidback about it.

We saw a different ped in the same office last time. She mentioned he might have mild torticolis. She's referring us to a physical therapist. I told her my concerns about him wearing a helmet. He gets severely agitated with anything constricting. So I know he would hate it. I'm not convinced he has torticolis. He was already crying when she checked him. So it may have seemed he was in pain. Either way I'm gonna take him to therapy. I want to do anything I can to avoid a helmet.
