To help ensure your baby develops a nice head shape and normal brain development. Prevention is nearly always better than the cure.
As you read this babies worldwide are being fitted with un-natural helmets to correct flat/deformed heads. Worldwide statistics show that up to 40% of babies ‘heads’ never return to an acceptable or attractive shape. This is a significant statistic!

For thousands of years it has been well known that the younger the baby, the softer the head. So start from when baby is very young. Prevention is definitely kinder than cure!
THIS OR THIS
As back sleeping is currently recommended for babies, it is important to alternate the babies head position at each sleep. However, not all babies keep their head on the side you turn it to and approx 30% can prefer one particular spot. This even despite turning the cot/crib or having a bright toy on alternate sides.
When babies insist on sleeping on a particular spot the Safe T Sleep MULTIwedge will gently encourage the baby's head to stay on alternate sides and help prevent a flat spot from developing. Mothers tell us that the MULTIwedge also helps to remind them which side their baby's head was turned to last.
When back sleeping the Safe T Sleep MULTIwedge can be placed on an angle behind the back of the baby's head and little shoulder. In order to anchor the MULTIwedge, tuck it substantially underneath the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap (the part of the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap that wraps around the mattress). It is unwise to have loose items or toys in the cot. When side sleeping baby the little MULTIwedge can be tucked into baby’s back.
