My little guy has something call brachycephaly. This is when the head flattens uniformly, causing a wider and shorter shape. After no improvement with craniosacral therapy, and months of looking for signs of improvement (since it can sometimes even out as they grow), he was seen by a specialist who fits babies with a DOC Band, or helmet. It's important to know that the DOC Band does not cause pain to the baby, but encourages growth in the flattened areas instead. It will be hard to see him wear this 23 hours a day for the next 4 months or so, but he wears it like a champ and looks so darling, do you think?
