Flat head syndrome, prevention methods and when you can stop worrying

Shanna - posted on 10/11/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




I have an almost 4 month old and I noticed that the left side in the back feels and looks flatter than it did before :( . I am concerned he is developing a flatspot since he sleeps tilted to the left at night and for naps. I have been trying to get him to sleep tilted to the right, but he always went left and I never worried until now (asked the doctor 3 weeks ago and he said he was fine, but now it seems more pronounced). He hates tummy time if we go more than a few minutes, but I try. I also put him on my lap and have him sit up when possible.

I was looking online for help to correct this problem and I read about the lilla kuddis pillows, but I am in the USA and they won't ship here. Anyone have any suggestions about pillows in the USA that can help? Also, at how many weeks/months can you consider yourself "out of the woods" and not have to worry about this anymore?
