Flat Head Syndrome: What is it and How is it Avoided? , An astonishing one-in-sixty babies are believed to have ‘Flat Head Syndrome’ (FHS), also known as plagiocephaly. Many mothers don’t realise that their babies’ heads are misshapen because they, naturally, see their babies as perfect. It is often only when they have a second child that they notice discrepancies between their two children, or even when their child is older and they find it difficult to wear bicicle helmets, for instance, that they notice that anything is amiss and seek medical advice. Midwives and Health Visitors are often rushed and are sometimes misinformed or even ignorant about FHS and so don’t properly advise new mums even if they spot something is a bit abnormalwith the shape of a baby’s head.
