I don't know if this has been mentioned, but the whole 'back is best' is what has contributed to the increase in most flathead-ness. My child dealt with that (although not the actual misaligned ears, etc of real plagiocephaly and torticollis). The doctors explained to us that, unfortunately, the 'back is best' has given rise to the cases of this. Add to that, my child hated tummy time.. and... well...

are you swaddling? That generally helps babies sleep. Mine slept on me at that age or right next to me all swaddled up. I just didn't use a blanket for my side. dressed in night clothes (which isn't normal for me generally) so that the blanket wasn't an issue.
