Plagiocephaly: Management of Baby Flat Head
Initially, the suggested course of action for reshaping the flat head would be repositioning. This would be the recommended for the first 4-5 months. For mild to moderate plagiocephaly, more than half will resolve by 6 months of age by repositioning alone. If the plagiocephaly is moderate to severe and if repositioning is not effective a helmet would be the next option.Helmets work very well at reshaping the flat spot when repositioning has not been effective.
