Compassionate approach to conditions related to face and skull
The birth of each baby can bring its own set of questions and concerns. You may notice your child’s head shape or facial features are different. Many times, abnormal head shapes are simply the result of sleeping preferences or Flat Head Syndrome (Positional Plagiocephaly) which usually gets better on its own without intervention. This may be followed by your pediatrician.
