  • Flat head syndrome - or abnormally shaped head.

    No, my son was borderline with it - when he was in the NICU, but he settled himself out. :]
    Good luck to your precious one.

  • Well we did not notice it until he was 2 months old and my ped had me do the stretches with him but it hasn't made the progress I wanted to. So for now the PT will see him every two weeks after he gets his helmet.

  • My friend's son had plagiocephaly; they thought he would need a corrective helmet, but his head rounded out all on its own before he was one year.
    On the helmet... I've heard of moms who have had the helmets painted like a football helmet, or with a favorite character (like Elmo, Batman, etc).
    Best wishes! I think it is so great that you started a group!
