Back in January/early February when Landon was so sick he was paralyzed and only laid on one side of his head for so long - he was so unstable that they let him do whatever he needed to do to remain stable. Slowly he started to move his head side to side, and we had to try to only give him stimulation on his left side. Now he doesn't show much preference and moves his head all on his own but his head is still flat (Plagiocephaly). We've let it go for a couple weeks to see if it would reshape on its own, but didn't have much luck. It was changing, but not very fast so we decided to get a cranial helmet. Here's pictures of the crew at the doctor's!
So handsome! He's so excited to get his helmet!! :)
Man oh man! Brooklyn having so much fun!
Here's my little baby with his helmet! For the next 3 days he has to wear it for a couple hours at a time to help him get used to it. Then after Thursday, wearing it for 23 hours per day! It should take between 3-6 months to reshape his head. After that, it won't do much good. We'll see how he does! So far he's still getting used to it - it's tough for him to get comfortable so we're experimenting different positions and propping him up so it's more comfortable. He's so cute!
