How we corrected our baby's flat head without a baby helmet. It was suggested that our daughter be put in a Doc Band at 4.5 months of age. We did a variation of alternative exercises and increased tummy time activities which drastically helped change the shape of her head to the point where the Doctor advised us a helmet was no longer necessary!

This was the condition that Josh had when he was young.  He is now 18 years old and I can remember the days arguing with my Dr that his is was NOT normal.  Thank goodness we found Cranial Tech back then.  Way before blogs, facebook, and pinterest.  Glad to see it is "out there" now!
