    My DD had a flat spot from birth (positional, from either the womb or during birth). I bought one of those pillows but it did nothing. I saw a specialist about it and they decided not to treat it, but she still has a slight flat spot at 17 months. I'm just remaining hopeful that it resolves itself. I think the pillows are a bit of a gimmick really.

    It's only possibly useful if the flat head is on the back of the head, not the side. My DS had a flat head but some physio, more tummy time and neck strength exercises and being vigilant about repositioning his head when he was asleep fixed it. (He was a big baby and the theory was that he got a crook neck in the womb as he only ever looked to his right or straight ahead.)

    One of the child health nurses I spoke to at a information session when I was doing Uni swore by putting a little pouch of rice under babies head so that it would mould to the shape of the head

    I had one for DS as he favoured one side. Physio said it was fine to use, BUT I only ever used it for day sleeps when I was near to check on him. He used to sleep in a bassinet in the living room. It definitely helped to a point but then his head started to mould to the shape of the pillow. Best treatment was a Chiro! I swear by it and that's after seeing a public and a private Physio. He still has a flat spot but his hair is so curly (and messy) it's not noticeable.
