How a Plagiocephaly Helmet Can Help Your Baby
Custom plagiocephaly helmets for baby flat head are an option for those that have had limited success with counter-positioning. Helmet use provides best results if started early while the head is still growing. The best time for using a custom plagiocephaly helmet is still between 5-6 months of age.
Helmets are effective for plagiocephaly because they create a space where the flat spot is. As the child grows the child will fill in the space that is created by the helmet. No matter how the child sleeps, a proper fitting plagiocephaly helmet will encourage growth in the flattened area. Results are based on growth. If a child starts with a plagiocephaly helmet early there is greater growth remaining thus better improvement.
