She has gone to see a prediatriction but she never went back for the results.
I don't believe that you should go get a helmet its nnot really a thing to be to concerned about. But if it is still like that in a few years then do something. Until then just watch him grow, after they are only babies once so you might aswell make the most of it.

The paediatrician isn't concerned at the shape of his head, only the size - 53.5cm in circumference.
My friends baby had a flat head. Apparantely from when she was delivered her neckn was sprained and she would roll her head to one side. anyway, she got a helmet for her daughter and now shes fine. I would get it checked out for sure. Why not? It helped her in her trying to walk. Everytime she fell she wouldnt hurt herself!! I would if it were my son.

I am concerned too, Georgia is 4 months old and favours her left side, their is a noticable bump on her right side.
The clinic recommended me to swap her sleeping position in her cot and play with her from the right side. I have been doing these things and Georgia turns her head ok, but always sleeps to the left, even though she now faces the wall instead of the door!
I have a friend who is taking her daughter (same age) to have an x-ray, I don't know if that is a bit extreme, as well as the helmets, I wonder if they can sleep with a helmet on?
I truly hope that their heads just go into their natural shape as they get older, it is what I want to hear anyway!

my son denzel 19 mths has a flatened head on one side again from sleeping on his side, his pediatricion did xrays when he was about 8 mths and took head measurerments for months but has not said any more about it. his head is still flat but his thick hair hides it.
i also spoke to his orthopaedic surgeon and he said not to worry about it as it is common and does not make a difference to growth or development
