Q:

My 2 months old baby uses to sleep always on the right side since birth because of which forehead on the right side seems to be bit larger than the left side.  I am using mustard pillow but I didn't find it helpful ... please suggest



hi dear, baby is still small, so you can easily rectify it... take care baby does not keep head always on one side. babies have a tendency to face towards source of light, so if you have light coming from right side, either block that source or keep shifting baby's position. the shape of head should rectify as baby grows...

Mustard seeds pillow or any pillow..baby won't feel comfortable and they easily pull it or slide from it.  One best way is tying a cotton scarf around head ( if baby allows) Or turn baby head every now and then slowly. Don't allow baby to sleep one side. You can use "Jholi"...( the traditional cradle out of saree to sleep in).. Don't worry still time is there.. as they grow...things so settle.

yes jholi is the best option... they won't keep their head at one place for long ...don't wry it will be fine
