I am 5 months & two weeks old.
I have just been diagnosed with severe plagiocephaly (Google it, we had to) :)
I was born with the aid of forceps (which mummy and daddy are very thankful of), but it has left my head very wonky, pointed and weird shaped.
Plagiocephaly usually rights itself after a few weeks to months.
Unfortunately mine is severe, no amount of tummy time and repositioning will help me.
The only thing that will help me is this helmet.
My new helmet will cost £2000 and is not funded by the Nhs.
My soft plates in my head fuse by 12 months, so the time frame for this working is very short and the sooner the better.
The nice lady at the helmet clinic said if I get my helmet fitted soon I will only have to wear it for 5 months then I will have a normal looking head by the time of my 1st birthday.
Please help me so when I'm older I can wear hats, cycle helmets and glasses like a normal person.
Please give generously, share and spread the word.
Thank you so much for my new head
Ps. Here is a photo of my head now from above.
