    I'm not sure about vacuum delivery, but Emma had a really cone shaped head as a newborn (it's funny though, I could hardly see it myself, but when I look back at photos I can - I was looking with my rose coloured glasses ) but I guess it took a few months to completely change shape, maybe even more. But probably by a couple of months it was fairly 'normal'.

    Hi Maggie

    Kaitlyn had vaccum delivery but I dont remember her having an odd shaped head after it ...although it was bruised. However I know this can happen. I would give the OB or Hospital a call as I am sure they would be able to set your mind at ease...or your pead if you have one.
