Oh, and little details no one mentioned before we got it: that it will take a week or better for him to get used to sleeping with the helmet on; it will smell like a dirty sock over time; and it will pinch his eye. Though the sleeping aspect is annoying (I think he might have slept one night it in it thus far and wakes up every 30-60 minutes when he does sleep in it), what I'm bothered most is the pressure it places on his eyes, particularly his left. It makes him look like he's frowning! My happy baby now has a near perpetual frown. I also worry that it might cause him to have a lazy eye or in some way inhibit the proper development of that side of his face.

Supposedly letting him sleep in places other than his crib led to his flat head and a need for the cranial helmet which I currently hate. The irony of it is that since getting it he's fallen asleep in places/positions he never has before. Poor little guy...he's probably exhausted from the crappy night's sleep in that thing last night. We made it till 130am sleeping in 30-60 minute increments or less before Mommy gave up. Argh!
