How did wearing a helmet impact my son’s sleep?

  www.mylittlesleeper.com laura@mylittlesleeper.com   Your baby has Positional Plagiocephaly and Torticollis and will need to wear a helmet in order to fix it” are not the words any parent likes to hear. However, this kind of condition has become much more common since the back to sleep campaign started in the early 90’s. I inevitably blamed myself. Were we really not doing “enough” tummy time? Were we putting my son in baby holders too often? Did he really need  to wear a helmet or was there something else we could do? Would he have a flat head forever, get teased for it when he’s 12 and then blame us? Next thing we are told: “Your son’s head flatness ratio is 5 Standard Deviations from the norm. He is at the extreme end of the bell curve and basically, no matter how much Physical Therapy he has, he’ll never be within the ‘normal head shape’ range, unless you get him a helmet.” Awesome.

As my...
