My wife is obsessed with the shape of our son's head. When we first brought the little guy home from the hospital he would always sleep with his head to one side. So the left side of his head has gotten a little flat.
She was so worried she put it on the list of things to ask the doctor when I went in for the last appointment. The doctor assured me that, though he could see the flat spot she was talking about, that his head was not misshapen enough to worry about.
Still she worries that he'll have to wear a special helmet. I do what I can, trying to make him sleep with his head turned to the other side. I tell her she's just being paranoid, but I still catch her staring at his head with a worried look on her face.
Anyone want to help ease her mind?
NOTE: the spikes on his head do not reflect the actual shape of his head.
