Here is a picture of my son. He is 6 months in this picture. Isn’t he such a cutie? I’m probably bias because he is my son, but that’s ok. Don’t let that smile fool you. He can throw a tantrum that rivals my husband.
I just received the news from his orthotist that my son’s helmet has been approved by our insurance! Oh I am so happy. We are so happy. We really hope his head grows out normally. Currently my son’s head shape isn’t super bad and thank goodness it is getting better with all the time I spend doing these exercises on him. It’s still very noticeable and even his pediatrician takes notice. If she notices then yes it’s not just me that’s being mommy crazy. Especially since I had to find all these specialist by myself instead of using referrals.
If we had to pay the out of pocket cost it would have costed us $2500.00. Since the orthotist said his measurements wasn’t too off the charts for a helmet but it would have helped him faster as opposed to us just using the physical therapist. We wouldn’t have paid for the helmet if we had too since the orthotist said his measurements isn’t too bad at that point, but could have measured again later when it was clear proof his head isn’t getting better.
It’s not noticeable in this picture but the right side of his forehead is pushed forward a little. I hope the helmet helps him faster.
