Occipital Ledging

What we see here is called a “prominent occiput” or “occipital ledging”. Typically a baby will get these from their position in utero. We can help improve this by early intervention of ensuring baby sleeps directly on that bulge. The direct pressure helps it to blend in to the rest of the skull and not be so obvious. Sometimes it can be difficult to keep them in this position but we have quite a few tricks to help with that! Let us know if your baby could use some help in the occipital region!!
