Hi, your child is probably lying in the same postition too much. You need to lay them in different positions and the skull will almost always correct itself over time. If it is on the back of the head. Lay them on their side and then switch. In the baby store their are wedges made out of foam, There are 2 pieces connected with cloth spaced about 12 inches or so apart you can lay the child inbetween the wedges at their chest under their arms. This does take time, but I was an infant teacher for 20 years and it corrected lots of childrens skulls because their skulls can move, they are not formed together yet. You can also have your child up more. bouncy seats, swings , tummy time while awake, and just holding the child in different positions will help .

I'd heard American mums use Star Band Helmet to correct their baby's head shape. Where can I get something similar in Sydney?
