Last time I updated was about a month ago after DD's first PT home visit. http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2277003.html
Since then she has been doing well and we have been exercising with her as much as possible. Her therapist is very optimistic. She still needs a little work with arm and belly strength as she tends to ignore her right side. DD is almost sitting up on her own now... so she's getting somewhere. And she also looks to her right more often now. Next visit her PT wants to try something called Kinesiotape to help with muscle awareness and sensory and to help align parts of her body.
The topic about a helmet came up again and her PT is starting to think she may
not need one. She says she already sees improvement with her head rounding out on its own. I honestly don't see a change, but then again it would be hard to see change when I see DD every moment of every day. So we decided to start taking photographs to view the top of her head once a week or so and then compare. I'm just worried that if we continue to go this route that if we wait too long it may be too late to fix it. She's 7 months now and I honestly don't want to have to wait any longer than needed.
Here's the first set of photos we took today. To me it looks the same as it did when we started her PT.
The photos don't really show the flatness of her head on her left... it's hard to see since the flatness is a bit lower in the back.. but the bulge on the right of her head is obvious... and that's what is starting to worry me. She has that bulge in the back right and another small bulge on the left on her forehead.
I really don't want to miss out on the chance for a helmet to fix something that is irreversible later when she's older. I guess at her next PT I will make sure her hair is wet so her PT can see what I see.
