So we're on day 3 of helmet therapy and today is 4h on 1h off for my LO. Can I just say I have no idea how I'm going to make it through the next "x" months with this thing? It makes me so sad, I used to love to cuddle him on my lap and kiss his little forehead while we snuggled and now all I get is a hard cold helmet! Also I can't see his beautiful eyes unless i'm literally looking straight at him from level because of his big fat helmet. I realize it's a bit oversized with foam and that he will grow into it better where it won't appear so cumbersome but all I can do now it literally count the time until he gets an hour with it off so he's my little cuddle bug again. I honestly feel like it bothers me more than it bothers him!
Also, omg the amount he sweats on his head in it... there are no holes drilled in it, the fitter said he can drill some for the summer if we'd like, but tbh I'd prefer them drilled now. After just 2 hours his head is literally soaked, I can't imagine what 23 hrs a day will do to it. We were told as the body adjusts they won't sweat nearly as much but I can't imagine that's completely true, he literally looks like I took him out of the bath once I remove it.
- sigh... It's so hard to think that this is only the beginning :(
