Since newborns have difficulty raising their heads, or easily moving around, they run the danger of developing flat spots on their heads, caused by being in one position for too long. This is something that appears to be happening more frequently, as parents heed warnings to not place their babies on their stomachs, in order to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome. Sleeping on the back, however, increases the chances a baby will develop a flat head, something medically known as plagiocephaly.
Some parents have found a solution with the Boppy Noggin Nest Head Support, shown above. It gently raises a baby’s head off of a hard surface, and is designed for a swing, stroller or a bouncer. The item pictured is in pink, but you can also order it in brown and orange for a boy.Buy Now
