Anne’s note: Oh, how I wish I’d read this information years ago!
Flat head syndrome is the common term for a flattening on one part of a baby’s head.
The medical term, brachycephaly or plagiocephaly can be quite worrying but the vast majority of infants with a flat head syndrome are perfectly normal, well developing babies.
They just have a flattening on one part of the head.
The question of what can be done to minimise the effects of plagiocephaly is asked over 135,000 times a month on Google alone.
So to help and to use as an education tool, a Plagiocephaly Infographic has been produced to explain how plagiocephaly develops and what should be done to minimise and treat the condition.
We are sure that parents and clinicians will find it useful.
