What is Flat Head Syndrome?
“Flat head Syndrome” refers to flat spots on one side of the back of the skull. It’s very common, and a recent study performed by Calgary’s Mount Royal University found it affects almost 50% of newborns aged 7 -12 weeks old.
The good news is, positional plagiocephaly usually corrects itself as our babies grow and develop. It is also believed to have absolutely no adverse impact on our baby’s brain development.
What Causes it?
Following the Government’s “Back to Sleep” campaign to prevent SIDS, also known as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, many American infants developed flat heads from sleeping on their backs.
A newborn‘s heads is very soft and malleable. The pressure of sleeping on a firm matress in the same spot every night can cause positional flat head. In rare cases, the condition can be hereditary as well.
When To Worry?
It’s pretty common for vaginal deliveries to cause flat head due to the pressure of the birthing canal. The baby head shape will look normal after 6 weeks so flat spots after this time are worrying.
Usually, parents become concerned about flat spots when their newborn is around 2 months old. If the situation hasn’t improved by 6 months a lot of pediatricians will recommend a flat head helmet.
Prevent and Correct Flat Head Syndrome
Our ergonomic heart shape pillow is designed to prevent and correct mild cases of flat head syndrome. Flat head syndrome occurs when a baby's head develops a flat spot due to pressure on that area. Babies are vulnerable because their skull is soft and pliable when they're born. Use our pillow to position your newborn’s head properly. The cut out in the pillow allows air to circulate, keeping your infant’s head from overheating as well as allowing room to support your infant’s head so that it does not become flat through pressure. Keeping the head and neck in alignment with the spine is an added benefit to restful sleep.
Don’t allow your baby’s head to become misshapen with flat head syndrome, add our positioning pillow to your cart now and ensure that your newborn gets the restful sleep he or she needs to grow up healthy!
Infants Need Proper Sleep
Newborns need not only the right amount of sleep but also a high quality of sleep. If your infant’s head is not positioned correctly it could disturb his or her sleep, keeping his or her brain and body from growing as fast and healthy as it should. Our positioning pillow puts your infant into an ergonomically correct position, keeping his or her head aligned with the spine. It is in this position that air flow is optimum and that the best sleep is achieved. A baby that has high quality restful sleep is a happy, healthy, and thriving baby.
