Baby’s Ear Size Is 1 Month Bigger Right?
Hello. I want to ask that my baby is only 1 month old, but on his head there is a lump in the period of delay at birth, can it return to normal? How do you do that?

At the age of the baby, the large crown on the skull is normally not closed so that to have a normal baby's head is still possible. Generally, the crown of the baby begins to close at the age of 18 to 24 months. Because the baby's skull is still soft and has the ability to develop in line with the baby's brain development, the baby's skull is vulnerable to physical changes depending on the baby's daily habits. Babies are prone to plagiochepaly, or the baby's head is not symmetrical or peady due to uneven pressure. As a result the shape of the head does not become perfectly rounded and affects the aesthetic value of the baby's head.
However, the more important thing is to evaluate the size of the baby's head circumference each month. It is recommended to measure the baby's head circumference until the age of 2 years and plot the results on the Nelhause head circumference curve based on recommendations from the Indonesian Pediatrician Association (IDAI). A baby's head circumference that is lacking or incompatible with his age is related to a baby's brain development disorder.
Related to the size of the baby's ear, as the age develops, the ear size will be the same between the right and the left, except when there are indications of ear deformity such as microtia or protruding ear based on direct examination.
To find out more clearly related to the condition of your baby, it is advisable to do a direct examination so that it can be evaluated thoroughly by your nearest pediatrician.
The following health tips for your baby can be done at home:
Give ASI when the baby wants, or 8-12 times a day
Make sure the baby urinates at least 6 times a day and defecates once a day
Change the position of the baby periodically so that the head gets evenly distributed pressure
Give milk in turns on the right and left breast. Wait until the breast is deflated / the milk has just been transferred to the breast next to it.
Be diligent in examining the growth and development of infants, including weight, height and head circumference each month and plotted on the KMS card or baby growth curve
That's all the information I can convey, hopefully it helps
