no chance, my daughter had them same thing i was told it would pop out, with her having long hair you can tell her head is flat at the back, nhs see it as cosmetic, even tho if it is really bad you'll have trouble finding bike helmets that fit your child, ears can be wonky so glasses wont fit properly

Well that's just stupid, they give girls boob jobs yet won't fix something that everyone can actually see :x

Awwww bless him, its marvellous how much difference there is already.

Were you embarrassed about it? Genuine question

is it hereditary why did both your babies have the same condition? (feel free to ignore the question if you feel it is too personal)

Oi! we get the show too up here in Scotland - its not just you lot you know!

OP - your son is a wee cutie. Glad you managed to get him the helmet. Will he need to get a new one every so often or is it adjustable? Was just reading last week about a couple in our local paper who couldn't afford one either for their son who has similar problem. They got a lot of donations after appealing to kind hearted folk.

Not a " funny shaped head " an unusual shaped head.

There is nothing funny about it.

isnt this from when baby sleeps more on one side, my son has a slightly odd shaped head but not as drastic.

how much is a helmet and what does it do?

Original Poster

the reason i and others go on the show is to get the treatment the nhs wont pay for

i wasnt at all embarrassed by my son head but like i said i couldnt afford to pay for one myself

not sure why they both had the same condition, they were born with it, it could be when they traveled down the birth canal they got squashed up (can happen if thier there for too long), not enough fluid with themwhile i was pregnant, it normally happens to babies born very earily (well its more comon) as there skull is softer

they cost around £3000, they hold the head to give it chance to grown on the side where it hasnt, so where his head stuck out the helmet fitted him perfectly and where the head hadnt grown out there was a big gap in the helmet, every month had to go back and get the helmet reshapped

It is quite a common thing nowadays as baby sleep on there back, pressing on their soft heads.

my girls head is slightly flatter on one side but she has so much hair you can never tell, my boys head is fine as i made him sleep on his front whenever i could

my daughter started coming out using the goi goi baby pillows, i did try a sleep curve mattress but that didnt seem to do much, how old is he? as it can sort itself out, they say its more comon now as babies spend alot of time in car seats and on there backs, i think as mine both had it from birth is why it didnt sort itself out, i left it a little late as my son was 6months when he got the helmet the sooner you do it the better results

this might be a good read for you
