You’ve made a great change to your baby’s future and we’re delighted that you have entrusted us to help you. It’s great to get back ‘the kissing spot’ on your baby’s head and at last to be able to see the great results your baby has achieved during treatment.
As your baby’s plagiocephaly treatment comes to end though, many concerned parents worry that their baby’s head shape will ‘go back to the way it was’ and this will undo the results they see at the final assessment. At Technology in Motion, we always answer those concerns with one clear response, the shape of your baby’s head will not go back to how it was and plagiocephaly will not return.
Many parents that contact us or visit us at our clinics often ask “what’s a normal head shape for a baby?” and “how can I tell if the flattening is plagiocephaly?” Although we would always advise that you visit one of our leading orthotists for a professional diagnosis if you are concerned about your baby’s head shape, this blog post offers some key indicators for recognising plagiocephaly and the steps you can take to treat the condition.
Many parents who contact us are concerned that TiMband will be distressing for their baby. This post is to give you some idea about how the many babies and parents that we see manage their daily lives with a helmet. Choosing to treat your baby with a plagiocephaly helmet is a difficult decision for many parents and making sure your baby is happy, healthy and comfortable throughout their journey is understandably your number one concern. It’s also our number one priority too so we make sure that our helmets are very comfortable.
