My 9 month old dd has been wearing a helmet for about 4 months due to severe plagiocephaly She has toticollis and that was the cause of it. She is seem monthly for the helmet. I know the guy that sees her about the helmet doesn't check her soft spot, but does her head growth. She has been really slow and steady with her head growth. About 30%. Getting her out the helmet is taking a well because of her slow growth, but she is steady and she is a small baby any ways. Well I took her in yesterday and the doctor asked if we ever had a catscan done on her head and when her soft spot closed. I don't know when it closed. I do recall our old doctor mentioning her soft spot at 6 months, but just said to watch it. If there was a major problem with her soft spot would we not have seen it earlier. Do you feel this is something to worry about. She has an appointment for her helmet today and I will ask then, but am not sure he even does anything with the soft spot. Could the helmet be linked to the soft spot some how. I have her 9 month next week and I will be sure to ask her doctor about it too.
