My 5.5 month old son has developed flat head on back side. Please tell some remedy to correct the shape of his head. I am very worried.

Hi There is no need to worry at all. You need to use a pillow for him that will help to get a proper shape. Usually a simple small pillow is enough. You can also use the traditional pillow prepared by filling mustard seeds instead of cotton. It also helps. No medication is needed for this as such. If it persists even after 3 months of using the pillow then contact me.
