Avoiding 'flat head'

The first recommendation for putting baby to bed to avoid Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is to lay baby on their back to sleep. Many parents worry about baby getting a flat area on the back of their head, otherwise known as 'plagiocephaly'. 

Liz discusses some simple techniques to reduce baby's risk of 'flat head' in this short 2.5 minute video such as

  • distractions to turn baby's head
  • tummy time
  • different ways to carry baby

The SIDS campaign has reduced the rate of SIDS by 85% since the early 1990's.  For more information about safe sleeping, visit the Sids&kids website.

Liz features on all of the Birthing Sense DVDs and talks about exercise in pregnancy, and care after a caesarian section.  She is also featured in our newsletter on care of your pelvic floor muscles before and after birth.
