  • Its going to be flat at the back to some extent because of the "Back to Sleep" to help with SIDS.
    Your pediatrician will tell you if it is too flat and there are helmets they can wear to help reshape the head.

  • He is gonna do that until he grows out of cant really force him out of it. My daughter did it too and now she sleeps on her sides every night. She is 15 months old now

  • quit using devices to hold him, use your arms! and for petes sake, let the baby lay on his tummy to play!

  • Tummy time and hold him often... don't let him spend too much time in things like his car seat, swing or bouncy seat

  • perhaps you need to quit him throwing against the wall and remember don't iron his head just his clothes!!!
