Good afternoon Helen, can you help me with a dilemma - if a baby is sleeping on the same side can it create a dent in its head? I place my boy to sleep on his stomach, but he is already big and he turns around on his own, so he often wants to sleep on his back. Should I worry and listen to other moms who say that the head can flatten?
Dear mom, a baby's head can hardly flatten from the sleeping position, especially nowadays, when we are all maximally present in a baby’s life and fully follow their growth and development. The problem can only arise if the baby has "soft" bones (rhinitis), which any pediatrician can recognize. You just have to take your baby regularly to a clinic where they will be under expert supervision and you don’t have to worry. As for the sleeping position, babies quickly choose the position that suits them and we are there to support them.
