Twin babies were just a few months old, we were told that both of them had flat spots on their heads, and if we didn't intervene with physical therapy, they would likely need helmets. At the time, I was really upset, convinced it was my fault for letting them nap in their carseats. I posted about it back then...and got several nasty (and misinformed) comments that did nothing to ease my new Mom guilt.

My son wore a helmet. I know a few other kids who did as well. How is this news? And the mother needs to get over herself, seriously in the realm of things that could happen to your children a flat spot is SO not a big deal.

We have friends whose son wore one. We started calling him "Crash".

The name stuck, 20 plus years later.

My advice: if you think your baby might have a pronounced flat spot, talk to your pediatrician about it before he or she is 6 months old and, if recommended, get your child evaluated. It really was worth it, and not nearly as difficult as I thought it might be. It also flew by, as it seems every month with these babies does! And I feel better knowing that, in the end, I did the very best for them.

I don't think this is news either - more multiples = more helmet wearing.
