Annabelle has been in the process of getting a helmet for her plagiocephaly – also know as flat head syndrome. For her, it started with her torticollis (a condition where the head is turned to one side), which we noticed as we were leaving the hospital with her for the first time. When in her carseat, she would lean her head one direction, and it continued when we laid her down and a variety of other positions. After a few weeks, we brought it up to our pediatrician and he gave us some stretches to work on. We did those stretches for several weeks and the correct progress wasn’t being made, so he eventually referred us to a Physical Therapist and Pediatric Plastic Surgeon.
