We just ordered a helmet for one of our twins - it is one of the Band-types and should be here in a week or so. Her plageocephaly is on the mild side, I think, and they are estimating she will need the helmet for 2-4 months.
Does anyone have any tips for me? The things I’m concerned with or wondering about:
I picture sleeping with a big helmet on, and feel like I’d get a kinked neck. Is that the case? Should I prop her body up while she’s sleeping to make her head line up right?
What about the carseat - same concern, will her head get pushed forward?
Is her hair going to all fall out? Just curious on that one, I’m sure if it does it will grow back fast.
Is this going to be horrible getting used to? Am I in for some serious crying and a miserable baby?
I feel good about the decision to get the helmet, but I would love any advice to make this as easy as possible.
