You will have to begin repositioning the baby to sleep on the opposite direction to where the head is flattening. My DS had the flatness on his right side and we had to put a pillow under his back on his right side so that when he slept he would have no pressure on that side. Do tummy time during the days when they are awake. You caught it early enough to be able to correct it so don't worry.
It will be okay. I bought this thing that hold them on one side while thye sleep. differnet side each night. My daughter's was in the back. It seemed flat. Now she's nine and it's normal. It was okay about 1 year.I was worried too.
