So my son has torticollis and brachycephaly and we are getting his Boston Band helmet tomorrow.
He is typically a sweaty sleeper so I am definitely worried about potential rashes or overheating..experience? Plus were just hitting the hot summer months too- so that wont help!
We are also in the process of transitioning out of a Rock and Play in our room to his crib in his own room! for the past 3 nights he went from not having it... to spending an hour awake and ALMOST falling asleep... to sleeping 930-130am last night (caved and brought him back in after 20 minutes of fighting it)... slow but steady!
Did your LO's have any adjustments with the helmet and sleeping? I am worried that crib and helmet may cause for a few bad nights.. and I want to make this easy on him. Any advice that you have for our first week with it - cleaning, giving breaks - (should i start slowly introducing it?)- anything you can think of :)
Thanks in Advance!
Oh and he's 5 months old tomorrow (happy 5th months present right?!)
