    Default Flat head syndrome.

    Hi first post ever here! I was wondering if anyone here uses/used a head rest to prevent flat head syndrome & if they are safe to use?

    SIDS and kids wouldn't recommend them and most drs will tell you that a flat head isn't a worry anymore, the head is still molding and shaping and any flat spots will work themselves out once baby starts rolling and not being on it's back so much. There's a huge study from Great Ormond Street children's hospital about it if you're interested.

    I use one and my baby's head is still flat, even though all her day sleeps are on her tummy.

    Have you been advised to use one as a preventative measure or to assist in an existing issue with a flat head?

    No I'm still pregnant & was buying bassinet sheets and the saleswoman talked me into buying it. I was going to return it, but the receipt says no returns or exchanges unless the product is faulty etc.

    In Australia, I'm fairly sure that's illegal. They need to at least offer an exchange. Correct me if I'm wrong though, bubhub.

    Yes I'm sure they need to at least offer store credit

    I think I will try for credit. I'm just not sure if I need it & a bit nervous about it.

    Unfortunately there's no obligation on a store to accept a return unless the goods are faulty or not as described, etc. If you've just changed your mind, they don't have to take it back.

    Some stores will though, so you might as well ask :-)

    I'll try. I just messaged their facebook page. Then I'm banning myself from entering baby stores!
