    hi, my baby's head wasn't round from birth ... when i was in my mom's place she was able to round it off by massage and stuff ... but here it started flattening again ... i'm so worried .. she's 9 months old now ... its rounder after she started turning over and stuff, but it isn't round yet ... can someone tell me how long will it take for an infant's head to round up? or is it too late for me to massage her head? from when does a child's skull bones start hardening up? kindly lemme know :drowning:help

    hello poornimah,
    It is bit late now but try, take a cotton dupatta and make round circles,and use it as a pillow make sure it fits properly to your baby's head and then put her to sleep.

    Poornima....has it anything to do with your LO's HC? If the HC is fine as evaluated by the pead, then why are you so worried about the shape of the head...according to me, the shape of the face , head etc cannot really be dramatically alteredwith massage....

    Deepa.

    hi enlightened,
    Wt's LO and HC? by massage i dont mean the one that they do to the adults .. they just rub and pat the baby's head while bathing it ... anyway, we had her head-tonsuring ceremony a few days back and it doesn't look so bad :))) :2thumbsup: .. i'm less anxious now ...

    Don't worry,
    just massage the head whenever you have time in circular motion, very softly. It will become alright. I think it is not late at all. Our Adhu's mom can help you better, she is a doctor.
