Why does my newborn baby have a cone head?

Message length 300 characters recommended

When a newborn passes through the birth canal the soft bones in their skull temporarily overlap. The bones overlap to help the baby fit through the small birth canal. Often times the baby's head will look like a cone head. Their head will return back to a normal round shape within the first few hours or days after birth. It might look odd but it is normal and nothing to be concerned about.
