I'm curious about this as well. My gut tells me that it wouldn't be too traumatic, if at all. The helmet isn't painful, and Jack really is remarkably easygoing. Given his age I liken this to putting one of those cone things on my cat's head. Might bother him a little, but it'll be quickly forgotten.

Current plan is to get a second opinion. We've found a doctor that does the measuring and diagnosing but doesn't actually sell the helmets himself, which hopefully will make him more objective. Also, Jack doesn't sleep on his back anymore - he hasn't even been on his back in the last two weeks except when he's in the carseat. So maybe by the time we see this other doctor there might be some improvement?

Personally the jury is still out as far as I'm concerned.

I think you should reconsider that no improvement is necessary.

I like how everybody is focusing on the flat head while the picture talks about misaligned ears.

Re: People want to put something on my son's head

I saw a girl today at the park with her family (maybe 12 or so). Was very pretty other than the shape of her head (which was really noticeable even with long hair). It honestly looked like there was something seriously wrong with her.


So I vote you put the bucket on your kid's melon and fix this before people start gawking at the little tyke.

The result of a misshapen head.

Obv. people with flat heads wish their parents had taken care of it when they were children.

Those doctors are probably laughing their asses off after you leave.

"Hey Bob, I just sold another idiot one of the cranium shapers. People will buy anything I tell them too. My life is sweeet" - LFS's Dr.

What did people do years ago about this flat head syndrome?....thats right, nothing. These Dr.s are preying on your insecurities and making big bucks

So you're just going to ignore the people in this thread who say they have flat heads and wish something had been done?

Re: People want to put something on my son's head

OK, we have closure. Went to see a fancy-schmancy specialist at Cedars who did all kinds of poking and prodding and measuring. Jack's head is quite close to normal, and the part that's furthest from normal (the width/depth ratio) will self-correct over time because he's sleeping on his tummy now. This guy is a nationally known expert on this stuff and was unequivocal in his belief that Jack doesn't need the helmet.

He also did a full exam and commented that Jack is particularly well-endowed.

Glad to hear. A+ parenting going with the second opinion.

Re: People want to put something on my son's head

Yea for no helmet.

****ing LA doctors will say anything to make a buck. One had my wife in hysterics for weeks because she said our 2-yr old boy was autistic.

Told my wife he's fine, he plays with other kids, makes eye contact, totally normal. So he doesn't say much. He doesn't have a chance to say much because his sister (five) never shuts up. He just didn't respond to that doctor because he knew she was a ****.

Had his brain scoped by UC Davis brainatorium, he's totally fine.

Six months later he's jabbering away and has a boner for Nina on 'The Good Night Show'.

/hijack, just wanted to weigh in on '**** LA doctors'.

Couldn't agree more.
