My son was born with a more severe form of plagiocephaly (along with several orthopedic issues that he's still being treated for 5 years later). He never needed a helmet, though. I think the use of helmets is over-rated in most cases. IMHO, they should be delayed until the baby has been crawling for a couple of months to see if they're really necessary. I agree with the article... a flat-headed baby is better than a dead baby, so I would still recommend back sleeping for those at risk of SIDS.
I put my son to sleep on his tummy. He had bad reflux and this helped to ease the pain in his tummy and stop the reflux. Even the doc felt it was ok. So while I agree that back sleeping is better and way better than a dead baby. I think each situation is unique . Thanks for sharing the article.
