 My daughter's head was a bit flat. Luckily it got better on it's own.

A girl I know, her son is suppose to wear a helmet.. though I never see it on him.

The helmet is only for sleeping for my understanding. My sons head got flat in the back but it fixed itself. If they recommend the helmet, I would get it.

A friend had it for her son and she said it was pretty comfortable and the baby slept better. If not, I'm sure he'll get used to it. It's better to have it and make sure your LOs head fixes than for him to one side flat and the other not, IMO. Good luck though!

 I am not sure if it is just for sleeping or not. Try google-ing it and see what comes up. Maybe it will put you at ease!

My daughter has a flat area on the back left side of her head. She has a medical condition that made her head stay to the left which in turn made her end up having a flat spot. Her physical therapist said she needed a helmet and has to wear it 23 hours a day but her pedi said that she didn't feel it was nessasary and that her head would return close to the normal shape. Now at 19 months old her head is starting to go to its normal shape and isn't as flat as it once was.

Im just afraid his skull bones will fuse together before his head is normal. so were gonna go to  seattle childrens hospital hopfully pretty soon so we can get his head checked out.

a friend had this problem. the dr. told her that she would need to wear the helmet 24x7 with just a couple hours off a day to fix it. it comes from the baby spending too much time with the flat part of their head on a hard surface like laying on it in the crib or on the floor
