Fixing the Flat - Done

We are finished with the DOC band.  Yeah.  In truth it was not that painful of an experience but we did get lucky catching Callen's plagiocephaly at such an young age (he was just 3.5 months when he got the band).  Callen only had to wear the band for 5.5 weeks and now that we are a month post band, it all seams a distant memory.

Callen officially finished his band on March 31st while we were on vacation.  While the plan was to have a very eventful day at Disney and then retire the helmet this was not the case (we got rained out at Disney) but none the less I did take a few picture of his last day in the band.

All Done

I must admit I was a bit disappointed that I did not get to take him out in his newly painted band (we switched up designs as I had one more design planned - I did  not think he'd be out of the band so fast) but we did put the band back on him for one last photo op when we got home (I had to take him climbing in his climbing themed band)

Here let me give you a hand
 Tavish's turn to climb - notice his helmet too

Before and After Image
Here is a before and after image for those who are interested


  1. Hooray! I love the photos of him climbing with Tavish--too cute!

  2. Thank you for the before & after pic. My 9mo. old's head looks like the before pic. His pediatrician keeps telling us that it will correct itself. It does look better than it did when he was a new baby but it's still noticeable. I'm going to research this. Email me if you have any advice.

  3. He is so adorable (with and without the helmet)! Do you have any actual pictures showing the comparison of the before and after? I'm somewhat concerned about my 6 month old's head, but my pediatrician just keeps telling us to do more tummy time (which isn't easy since he just rolls over every time we put him on his tummy). How did your son react to the helmet at first? Was it tough for the little guy? Thanks in advance for any insights.
