Crying & Colic:Please help Hetal
2006-08-17
Name: sweety My son 1 and a half month old is used to the habit of sleeping on his right side.I tried to switch sides but he is adament atlast he will settle down on right side.So his left side is little bulkier than his right side .His head is somewhat assymetrical in size.How will it change?Everybody;s saying head will become round when he starts walking?Is it true?How will i make him sleep left side also??Everybody started noticing his assymetrical head now?Will it become round by massaging round?Please help.I tried pillows but somehow he will go to right side.i donno how to correct it.

this will go off eventually by the end of 1 year. keep massaging with hands giving light pressure holdin the whole head,,in round..its pretty normal..some babies like to sleep that way.when so, when you make them sleep on the otherr side that they dont prefer, keep a pillow at his back, this will prevent him to come on his fav side.just try,,some babies happen to accept it and will sleep,,others might just flip to their fav side !
other than that, nothin to worry,,its too early to worry about..if by 4-5months, or later depending on how it has become normal,you dr will show concerns regarding it.
if so, he might ask you to go for scan but thats only for the concern if he needs ne special helmet for things to come in shape..
but he will tell you, if he seems to be concerned after examining your baby..
dont worry,,until 3-4months, all this is pretty normal !
good luck.

infants sleep to whichever side they like.. My baby also always sleeps to her right, she also lost some hair on that side, and , i was worried.. but, my doc assured me that it is quite normal, and, would be fine once baby grows.. I do massage her head lightly, as my mother asked me to do that.. but, my doc said that even if i don't massaging, his head would become normal shape,.. don't worry..
