    Rebeccas head is quite flat at the back and HV has said to encourage tummy time etc (which she hates) I have found Goi Goi pillows and Love Nest pillows on the internet, just wondering if anyone has tried them and did they see an improvement?

    Emma used ot lieo n her side all the time, and she would also come into bed with us some times and sleep on/over a pillow.

    My LO didn't like tummy time at first either, which is quite common. TBH, they NEED it to so they don't get flat head. Just make sure LO is not hungry, doesn't need changed... then put them on their tummy and if they fuss or cry -- so be it. You can also get down there with them and play, talk to them, play with toys with them. That helped my LO get more used to it. Now he doesn't mind.

    He also likes to lay with his chest propped on his Bobby sometimes. But I don't let his happen too often as it makes it impossible for him to practices rolling over, arm strength, and learning to scoot/crawl.

    AH my HV said exact same thing but my LO HATES tummy time, even when i prop her up with rolled up blanket under chest. Cannot stand it! She has plenty of time upright as well as lay on back so i'm not concerned. Dont think i've known a baby without a bit of a flat head! xx

    My lo has a bit of a flat head but since she has been sitting up more its seems 2 be slowly fading so i would worry yourself to much over, she also couldnt use a pillow because she moves 2 much and now sleep on her side.
