Flat Head Test

Try this simple test.

Look down at your baby’s head from above and compare what you see in the pictures below.

Tip: Do the test after a bath when your baby’s hair is wet.

Still unsure?

The condition may not be noticeable or present at birth, only developing in the first few months of life. A flat spot may appear on either side or the back of the head as your baby grows.
