Supervised Active Repositioning - Some babies have a preferable side that they sleep on naturally, in which case the parent may have to intervene and change the position of their baby. This technique is called supervised repositioning. In order to take the pressure away from the flattened sides, parents are encouraged to change their baby’s sleeping position, to move any pressure to the alternate side of the head, using positioning aids. Tools such as Tortle Beanies and positioning wedge can help with the repositioning. Also, toys can be used to attract the attention of the baby to turn to the other side.
Rotation of baby's head - check if your baby has difficulty turning their head (potential Torticollis).
Referral - we encourage seeing a physiotherapist, Osteopath or Chiropractor that may help to loosen and strengthen their neck muscles.
