he was diagnosed with plagiocephaly at 3 1/2 months old. he is now 4 months.Answer Question
My daughter came to us at 18 months and she had a very flat head. When I asked the doctor about it he said he didn't recommend them because there hasn't been enough study on their safety and effectiveness. He told us to wait it out and she will be fine. And now her head has rounded out nicely and no one would ever know how bad it was before. And it was very, very bad before.

If that's what the doctor recommends. If you wait until 6 months it will be much harder to change!
Your baby may be spending too much time in "containers" like swings and seats. Besides a flat head this can cause container baby syndrome, a developmental disorder. Try getting rid of everything like that and using baby carriers and holding your baby. This helps the baby develop the neck and other muscles and of course gets the baby off the back of the head.

Gail baby heads do not get flat just from sitting in containers. It's because of the "back to sleep" when you lay a baby down on their back their head naturally will fall to one side and eventually the baby feels more comfortable to the one side and a flat spot develops.
