new referral for a DOC band

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

My daughter is almost 6 months and needs to have a band. I have heard good and bad things about having the band. Any advice would be welcomed.

My son has had his for about 2 months now and I would recommend them. He has not had too many problems with it - the first couple of days were a little rough but that has been it - and his head looks great!!! The sooner you can get one - the better.

Hi there. My son had it from 4 months to 6 months and I would recommend it to anyone. :o) As someone put in another post, you just have to be sure to wipe it daily during that hour it's off during the day. It will get sinky! :o) Otherwise you get used to it. At first it might clonk you in the head when you're holding her as you both have to get used to it. But it is so well worth it. My son's ears would have been so off set had we not had it done. The before and after pictures are amazing. Good luck! :o)
