Things to know about the helmet: 1. It’s expensive and 9 times out of 10 your insurance doesn’t cover the whole thing and 2. getting fitted for it is a nightmare. If you can get past those two things, you’re set.
Over the past few months since Danny broke out of the NICU, he clearly has favored the right side. Anytime he sleeps he’s always positioned his head looking to the right and it seems as though no matter what I do to try and get him to keep his head to the left, it always goes back to the right. I’ve tried everything, from placing something under his crib sheet to physically (which didn’t hurt him and was recommended by the dr.) slowing pushing his head to the left and keeping it there for about a minute. We have actually even gotten used to feeding him with our left hand so that he’ll be on our right side, looking up at us to the left. Nothing has worked and it seems that his head has just continued to get worse. To me it even seems to be pushed out on the opposite side of the front of his head.
