Positional Plagiocephaly (Flattened Head) - Topic Overview
How can you reduce the risk of SIDS?
To help reduce the risk of SIDS, place your baby on his or her back to sleep. Even if your baby has a flattened head, don't stop placing your baby on his or her back to sleep. Just offer plenty of tummy time and cuddle time, and change your baby's head position.
Talk with your doctor about how to position your baby so that you don't increase your baby's risk of SIDS.
