The medical term is plagiocephaly – it’s when your baby develops a flat head – and this week clinics around the UK are talking about it
Plagiocephaly or ‘flat-head-syndrome’, as it is generally known, is surprisingly common. It’s thought to affect around one in 30 babies in the UK and yet lots of parents don’t know much about it or what to do.
To coincide with Plagiocephaly Awareness Week from 16-22 May there are a number of free events taking place to help parents spot the signs, use repositioning techniques and understand more about other treatments, such as helmets.
No need to book – just turn up – entry is free and all venues are baby-friendly. More details from www.plagioawarenessweek.co.uk
