Forces on an Infant’s Skull

This is a great picture of how forces on a soft, malleable skull can affect the overall head shape of an infant. If a baby is always sleeping on the same part of their head, the skull responds by growing in the areas of least resistance – thus pushing the forehead forward on that side and also on the opposite side on the back. Therefore – THE ENTIRE SKULL is affected!!! This is why we see that ears are uneven, jaws are asymmetric and facial asymmetries are obvious. It affects the front and the back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our goal at Baby Begin is to show you EXACTLY how to position your baby to reverse this process and direct the head to grow into the FLATTENED areas to make it nice and pretty. We do not use pillows or positioners of any kind and the techniques are safe and very effective (90% success rate when started before 3 months of age). There is a very small window of opportunity to correct a head shape without a helmet. If you are interested in that – we are your people! We are doing lots of virtual consultations now. Let’s meet!
