Helmet Free!

7 weeks to the day, and we are helmet free! I took Stella for her weekly appointment, and Hillary, the helmet fitting lady (who has been super great) gave us the seal of approval to discontinue the helmet! It was honestly a joint decision between the 2 moms and the expert. Stella's head is not perfectly round, (no body's head is!!) but it is well within the average head measurements, and it is noticeably better than when we first started the therapy! I can tell that she is enjoying all of her nakie head time, as are we.

I definitely recommend that any parent who is considering this therapy give it a whirl, and I want to thank Carey from Finding Chaos once again for helping me get the knowledge and courage to challenge the "authorities"!

Thank you also, to everyone else who gave encouraging words along the way!!

Here is her first "newly out of helmet therapy " picture!

  3. Yeah!! Congrats to all of you!! Only 7 weeks is amazing - you caught some great growth spurts! :) And you are so right - no one has a perfectly round noggin. Mr. B's will never be 'perfect' either, but it's within the normal range which is what is important! Congrats again!!
