Plagiocephaly

I’m concerned my baby will develop a flat head. How did you prevent this?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: One of my good friends had a baby with the flattest head I’ve ever seen, and so I make a point to give my daughter lots of tummy time to prevent plagiocephaly. Also because she’s our first baby, we hold her a lot. Her head is looking nice and perfect!
