My son has been diagnosed with positional plagiocephaly, it was first noticed around 3 months of age, we tried repositioning for the past month and half but are having a hard time with it. He just loves the one side of his head too much. He is however starting to roll over and sleep on his side, so I'm hopeful that it won't get much worse...but it's not getting any better.
We gave in and got a consultation with Hanger. His asymmetry is about 12 mm. We are waiting to hear back whether or not insurance will cover it. I'm pretty sure we're going to go ahead and just treat it, but I was shocked when I asked them and they said they typically want them out of the helmets by 12 months old. My son is only 4.5 months, 3 adjusted. I'm assuming his skull is still very soft, and was expecting to hear a range from 2-3 months max in the helmet.
Just wondering if anybody else out there has had experience with plagiocephaly? How bad was it, how long was your little one in the helmet for and what were the results?
