Hi mom, let me just tell you that many of us end up worrying about the flat and round head shape thing, and it all turns out fine, so don't panic. If you are not using it yet, use a soft pillow for your baby, like the ones that are available in the market with a rounded base at the centre. Also, a great alternative is to make a pillow at home using any spare cloth that you have, and fill it with mustard seeds. As your baby lies on it, the seeds will take make space for the head to adjust in such a way that it will naturally create a rounded shape. It will help to make your baby's head round. Just to add here, my maternal grandmother made one for me and my brother, that I used for both my babies :)
