The twins

We went to the pediatrician at 4 months with the girls and she recommended going to Cranial Technologies to have the shape of their heads assessed. Cranial technologies diagnosed Lyra with severe plagiocephaly and Eva with severe brachiocephaly with plagiocephaly. Both of these just mean they have a flat spot on their head, but if untreated could lead to Noticeable facial asymmetry, Poorly fitting eyeglasses, Poorly fitting safety equipment like sports helmets, Visible flat areas with short or cropped hairstyles, Jaw misalignment resulting in a crossbite or underbite. We have decided to have the girls treated for this condition. What that means is they will have to wear a band/helmet for about 6-10 weeks. They say this is very common in twins because they are so compacted in the womb and their heads are so soft they are easily molded. 
The reason I have started this go fund me account is for our family and friends who were going to buy the girls Christmas gifts this year. Since the girls are so young they don't really care about Christmas gifts yet so we are asking for donations to help pay for the bands. 

This is the website where you can get more information regarding the bands and how they help the girls situation:
