When my son was born he was almost 10 pounds. He was emergency c-section due to his size. They had used a vaccuum in an attempt to get him out vaginally, but it didnt work. It did, however cause his head to swell quite a bit on one side; causing him to have a conehead. 7 months later, his head is now flattening on one side (kind of diagonally). I know this is partially due to the whole sleeping on their backs to avoid SIDS. But my question is that my doctor has suggested a helmet to help correct the head shape. He says it will be corrected in 3-4 months; but he has to wear it 24/7. Does anyone have info on the helmets, or have you experienced this with your kids?
