My five month old has torticollis and plagiocephaly. We have been going to physical therapy for about six weeks to address the torticollis, but have not had much luck correcting the plagiocephaly. The therapist is recommending that my daughter be fitted for a helmet. Does anyone have thoughts, suggestions or considerations about doing or not doing this? I'm torn. Everyone tells me that it will correct on its own-except for the therapist and doctor. I don't want her to grow up with a flat head, but I also don't know if I can keep her in a helmet for 23 hours a day for six+ months.
