Asian Head Shapes

I’ve always wondered why so many Asian babies have flat head shapes?????????? Can anyone tell me????

It was my understanding that in most asian cultures newborn babies were laid down on their back so the back of their heads developed that way. In western cultures, babies were more often laid on their bellies. I’m not so sure if these customs follow anymore. Truth or fiction, you decide.

I’m not asian and I have this. Most babies these days sleep on their backs anyway..doesn’t matter if you’re asian or not. There has been research that babies who sleep on their stomachs have higher risk of cot death. SIDS are greatly reduced when the baby is put on its back. So a great majority should have flat heads..and people don’t. I think it’s genetic. My cousin does not have a flat head at all, and as a baby, he always sleeps on his back.
