Tummy time can also help treat flat head syndrome as it takes the pressure off the back of her head and gives it a chance to round off.
If your baby doesn’t like being on the floor, the tiger-in-the-tree hold can help. Lay him on his tummy along the inside of your forearm, so his head sits in the crook of your elbow, with your hand holding his crotch.
