No more helmet for Riley!!!

If you all remember, back in March, I noticed Riley was laying his head to one side. I took him to our wonderful chiropractor and she said that he has torticollis. She also noticed that his head was misshaped. When we took Jonathan to his hip doctor, we asked him to look at Riley's head. He said it was simply plagiocephaly. We took Riley to see Barb the helmet lady. She took measurements and said that we needed a helmet to help shape his head correctly. We got the helmet May 21st and today was our last day!!! He has made major improvments since we first had his head measured. We are quite happy with the results. His head isn't totally round and the left side of his face isn't perfect, but it's so much better than it was. He will continue to improve over time!
