Just wandering how the helmet was going with correcting your daughter's flat spot. My 10 week old don has developed a large spot on the back left of his head and I am really worried about it. Am going to take him to the dr to have it looked at, as yet it hasnt affected his face but don't want it to get any worse.
Hope everything is working out for your daughter
We have seen really big improvements in the shape of our babies head and uneven facial features. Before we got the helmet for our girl we tryed aggressive repositioning and got her in a bumbo seat and did lots of tummy time to keep her off her flat spot as much as possible. She also has torticolis so prefered her head turned to her right side. We have done lots of physio to fix this and its almost 100%. With all of this there was no improvements with her head shape so we ended up at the Sydney Childrens Hospital were the Neurosurgen recommended a helmet to correct her plagio.
I never noticed her uneven face until I looked down on her head and could then see her ears were mis-aligned and that her forehead protruded more on one side. Have alook at your bubs head from above when he has wet hair as you can really see any problems then.
So many doctors have no idea about Plagiocephaly and all think that it will fix itself over time. Yes the majority of babies do however there are babies that do not so if you are really concerned push to get a referral to the hospital in your area that deals with plagio.
Its great that you have noticed it so young in your bub because with aggressive repositioning of bubs head position etc you will probably find the flatness resolves without anything else.
Good luck with your boy. Hope this has helped.
