Plagiocephaly Baby: First Week With Helmet

The first week is considered the “breaking in” period. This involves a schedule of short periods of wearing between one hour breaks. Eventually your child is suppose to wear it for 23 hours. The breaking in period is crucial and must be followed so your child doesn’t get a really horrible skin infection.

My son is finally over his breaking in period. He still gets a minor rash but overall he is doing good. We are seeing his orthotist for a follow up.

Yesterday we took him to a sit down restaurant and yes people did look but not out of disgust. More of out of curiosity. Plus he was a good baby and just giggly and wanted to sit up so he wasn’t disturbing anybody.
