The diagnosis: No Helmet.
They basically leave it up to the parents to make the final decision..but the overall consensus was that no helmet is needed. M.D.'s case of Plagiocephaly is very mild, and will most likely correct itself over the course of the next few months.
I can literally hear the $1200 copay finding its way back into my wallet :)
Speaking of $1200, we have reached the age with M.D. where we need a heap of new products to keep him busy, safe, and happy. Dangit. He's outgrowing the infant carseat. It's getting WAY too heavy to keep lifting and carrying around, and his legs are getting too long to the point where we can't use the wrap-around winter cover anymore. So, it's time for the convertible carseat upgrade. We need two carseats since we have two vehicles that M.D. regularly rides in. We also are needing a new bath seat for baby M.D. we've been using a foam pad for him to lay on, but now that he's wanting to try to sit up more and more we need something for him sit in so he can splash. He can't fully sit up on his own yet, so we need something that has some degree of support as well. I'm really excited about what I found.
Here's a link to the item on BabysRUs which is where I found the best price.
We struck gold in timing regarding the carseat situation. My nephew has just outgrown his convertible carseat and is starting in a booster seat. Both my brother and mom have convertible carseats that were used for him that are no longer in use. Guess who gets to borrow those seats for M.D.? Yup. This girl. SO excited. What a money saver for us. Thanks Family!! :)
Well, that's the update for now! More to come :)
