Max’s helmet journey has been going a lot better than we expected. His first full day was a little rough but after that he adjusted to it quite well and has even been sleeping better at night. His sisters think it is the cutest thing and love to help me decorate it with stickers every other week. We have gone out in public quite a few times and we have had other people share there experiences with family members having to wear a helmet. We’ve even had people ask us where we purchased it because they want one for their children or grandchildren for safety reasons. ha ha ha
|Day 1. Sorry for the blurry pic.|
The helmet is supposed to be worn for 23 hours a day but I keep Max on “summer hours” so he wears it approximately 21-22 hours a day. He sweats a lot so I try and keep it off of him while he eats and the hour before bedtime.
We are waiting for a local sign graphics company to finish creating his helmet wrap. We can’t wait till it’s done! If your little one needs their helmet wrapped look up Wrap Buddies. They are a group of sign companies that wrap cranial bands for FREE. It’s the sweetest thing!
