Watch Embarrassing Bodies Kids online: Episode 3 Asymmetrical head

Did you know that a baby is born with 340 bones but as we get older we only have 206? This is because the bones fuse together and change as we develop. Six month old Bradley is suffering from plagiocephaly, an asymmetrical head, and there are several causes; the soft bones in his head have been pushed out of shape; a genetic fault; or sleeping in the same position. Dr Christian sends Bradley and his mum Hayley to see an orthotist who will fit Bradley with a helmet, to be worn for six months, that will mould those soft bones into the right shape. After four months in the helmet, Bradley comes to visit Dr Christian, there is already a remarkable improvement in the symmetry of Bradleys head.
