It is common for babies to have flat spots on the skull due to preferred sleeping positions, intrauterine positioning, or due to torticollis. Dr. Ricalde can evaluate flat spots to ensure they aren’t due to malformations of the skull (craniosynostosis), which require surgical intervention. If your baby has deformational molding, Dr. Ricalde can educate you about repositioning techniques, or offer a custom helmet for therapy to improve the head shape.
