We often get asked “How do you get such good correction of skull flattening without a helmet?”
Well, the answer is multifaceted but one of the ways is to get these babies OUT of containers. Containers are swings, bouncy seats, car seats, etc.
Restricting movement of a young baby (with a very malleable skull) often causes skull deformities (plagiocephaly) so we like to #freethebabies to allow normal movement of the head and neck. This keeps the skull from worsening and often starts to correct the flattening!
If your baby’s head is flat, look at how much they are in the swing, bouncy seat, car seat, boppy lounger, etc. This may be contributing to the flattening. Put them on a flat surface and watch the magic happen!!
