Little Man has shown a wonderful improvement thus far!  My photos aren’t of the same pose, but hopefully you’ll see the progress he’s made.

The slope on the top of his head is less “pointy” and the back has really rounded out.  Actually, after seeing these photos side by side, I feel more hopeful about his future progress with the DOC Band.  However, I’m still concerned that he’ll need a second one.  Per his clinician at Cranial Technologies he has about 3 adjustments remaining in the helmet.  I wish it was more, because I have a feeling I’ll want him to get a 2nd DOC Band to further the improvement.

Here are photos from the top.  The first was taken several weeks before his photo study.

It’s not the same distance or angle, so the second picture is not a really good comparison photo, but you’ll be able to see how it’s filling in nicely.

So hopefully he’ll REALLY grow over the next 3 weeks and I’ll feel comfortable with having him in just ONE band. But if the progress isn’t as much as I’d like, I may get him a second—if I can convince Dude that we should add to our debt to do so.

Here’s one last photo comparison—Little Man now and when he was a newborn.  Again not a great comparison, but I keep thinking of how oval his head was and this is why I’m not sure I’ll be satisfied until it’s more like this. And I realize a baby’s head gets LESS oval as he gets older. But I want Little Man’s head shape to be as close to the “norm” as possible.
