Plagiocephaly - LOC band (Month One)


So it has been a month now since Seb started wearing his LOC band helmet. I was worried he would be uncomfortable and not want it on but he seems absolutely fine. Sleeps with it and everything.

We take it off for an hour in the morning and an hour at night during bath time so both band and baby head can get a good clean as his head and band stink!

Not sure if it is really making a difference but for me it is better to do it than to regret it. At his last appointment there was a marginal improvement in shape. So that isn't bad for first few weeks. Hopefully he will only have to wear it for another 2 months and then I can see his little head again :D

If you are interested in looking into Cranial Remoulding then please check out LOC's website. The clinic we go to is in Kingston about 5 minutes away from the station.
