What to do if my baby has a flat head

Avery had torticollis, which is basically just REALLY tight neck muscles on one side that makes it hard for them to turn their head. She couldn't really turn her head to the left so she ended up getting a flat spot on one corner of her head. We had to do physical therapy and tons of stretches at home when she was 2-4 months old. I was told that her head shape would solidify between 4-6months old so if we weren't seeing progress she would have to wear a helmet for 6 months. Luckily we did as we were told and now her head is nice and round. No helmet needed
