    I’ve been following your blog for over two years, but never commented before. I first found it when I was reading birth stories while pregnant with my 2 year old, but quickly decided to keep following it, partially because I was in awe of finding another Ada, and then because in many ways you are living my dream… The kids, the homeschooling, the animals and gardens and building things, and we have similar struggles i.e. kids who dont sleep and looooong spaces between babies thanks to nursing. Anyway, I decided to comment because we went through the whole plagiocephally thing with our Oliver. He had torticolis and despite constant babywearing and a few months of Physical therapy he ended up needing a helmet. It really made a huge difference, even though his head still isnt perfect. I worried a lot that people were judging us for his flat head, or for doing something cosmetic. Who knows if they were, but It ended up not bothering him at all when it was on (after we worked up to 23 hours.) The worst part was the one hour it was off because it itched and he would scratch it red. :-( Good luck!

      We never meet other Ada’s! I’ve also really not found hardly anyone else who has had a baby with plagiocephaly. I’m glad to know the helmet didn’t bother him much. I also wondered about itching. :( I wish we could just hurry up and start the helmet and get it over with instead of staring at his crooked head and waiting until December when he’s four months.

    Hey, I come over to see your post about Igor. But I had to keep reading and then found this!
    Way to go! Sure it may be cosmetic now but I know an adult who must have looked like that as a baby. Seriously, his face is bean shaped. And hats ever fit. and glasses look crazy. And his jaws are not as stable as they should be.
    It my be cosmetic now, but you won’t regret it. ;)
