Baby health is the ultimate priority for all parents, and there is nothing more worrying than your little one falling ill. However, this is usually nothing to worry about and it isn’t uncommon for your baby to experience illness during the first few years. This means that your little one might be poorly during their TiMband treatment. Understandably, many parents want to know whether to continue with treatment when their baby is under the weather, so keep reading to find out when to continue with the treatment during your baby’s illness and when not to.
Starting helmet treatment carries all sorts of emotions for parents, especially for new Mums. The good news is that it’s only for a short time with correction starting in the first few days and you’re doing the best for your baby. Just as it’s new for Mum, it’s also something new for your baby, but then everything is new for baby so if it’s Ok for Mum, it’s Ok for baby. The TiMband is just another new thing for babies to familiarise themselves with and the majority of babies adjust straight away. Others can take a little longer but either way, here are some useful pieces of advice for helping baby to adjust to the TiMband.
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.
