Molded head

At first, your baby's head may appear flat, elongated or crooked. This peculiar elongation is one of the common features of the newly born baby.

A baby's skull consists of several sections of bone flexibly joined so that the head shape can change to correspond to the shape of your pelvis as your baby moves through the birth canal. A long labor usually results in an elongated or tall skull shape at birth. The head of a breech baby may have a shorter, broader appearance. If a vacuum extractor was used to assist in the birth, your baby's head may look particularly elongated.
