My Helmet Baby (Squared)

Our family's journey with plagiocephaly

Super Cute Party Idea

on March 16, 2012

I wanted to send a shout-out to this mom, who had a helmet-decorating party for her baby, to educate family and friends on plagiocephaly and helmets.

She echoes so many of the same feelings I have had during this journey, especially about being thankful that this is something that can be corrected and that we have healthy, happy babies otherwise.  When we picked up Emily’s helmet on Wednesday at the orthotics & prothetics office, there was a young boy, maybe 5-7 years old in the office who was on crutches.  I’m not sure what type of condition he had, but I’m sure his life had not been easy to this point.  He was the MOST wonderful, upbeat little boy though and insisted to him mom “I’ll open the door, Mommy!” when she tried to help him.  I’m sure that his mom wishes that a helmet would just fix everything.
