My daughter has deformational plagiocephaly and we are getting fitted for a helmet. She has her next appointment on Friday and we will be going home with the CranioCap. I was hesitant to even get the helmet because I didn't want her to be one of those poor babies that people stare at. Somehow the decision to treat this was harder than the decision to close her PDA. I've been trying to embrace this by buying some cute stickers to put on. And since it's getting nicer out I thought I would buy a cute sun hat to help disguise the helmet. I'm having more of a problem with this than I should. I know she will only need to wear it for a few months but it is so hard for me since she is an otherwise healthy baby inside and out. Any tips on how I can make myself not worry so much about it? Any tips on care and maintenance? Ideas about how to deal with the awkward looks and questions? Anyone want to share their experiences with a baby helmet?
