we didn't have torticollis, but my daughter laid on her back. I was worried, but it was during the whole Louisiana Hurricane episode. Basically, I kept getting bounced by the peds saying that she would be fine and it would round out by the time she started to move around. FINALLY we came back home, and her normal ped listened to me. By this point, She was 13 months old, and she actually had a crease on the back of her skull. Saw a Neurosurgeon who ordered a CT scan. The CT scan showed that she had "wormian bones". Those are tiny extra bones in the sutures and VERY open growth plates. Long story short--her skull was growing, but the sutures were sort of stuck. She was too old for a helmet, and showed NO signs of abnormalities other than cosmetic. They did nothing.
Long story short (too late)---She is a scary-smart 5 year old who can't wear pigtails or her "crease" shows. But most people never notice it.
