EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE DOC BAND | PLAGIOCEPHALY & TORTICOLLIS

Hi loves! Today I sat down and shared all about Leyton’s helmet journey (trust me, it was a journey lol!) to correct the flat spot on his head. I had SO many questions and really wanted to avoid the whole thing before we ended up getting him one, so I hope this is helpful for any other mama’s whose babes are going to need a helmet!

  9. amanda gall on October 18, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Thank you thank you thank you for making this!

    It’s crazy how a lot of people out there don’t know what the helmets are for and think negatively. Hope they know it doesn’t effect the baby’s brain, it’s to help reshape their skull because a lot of grown people out there have flat heads and never got the treatment. I’m glad a lot of caring parents are getting the helmet to help their beautiful babies amazingly shaped there heads perfect



  11. Esa-la-Wally on October 18, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Use CERVE BABY UNSCENTED for their head and body soap. Helped the smell. Found bc of the lack of fragrance it didn’t make their head smell sooo bad. 🤷‍♀️



  12. Wei Zheng on October 18, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Such a helpful video!! We are going in next week to get his helmet and I’m a nervous wreck, great suggestions! And your baby is so cute!!



  13. KimmiiiXO on October 18, 2021 at 9:40 am

    Was he crying a lot when he got it ? What did you do to help him relax



  14. Angeles Vazquez on October 18, 2021 at 9:42 am

  16. Viktoria Fischer on October 18, 2021 at 9:44 am

    dear Dimitra, how much is the assimetry now?



  17. Cheka on October 18, 2021 at 9:47 am

    Where did u order it honey? We need it too



  18. Melina Marcellay on October 18, 2021 at 9:48 am

    This is such a great video, thank you! Our pediatrician mentioned that the back of our son’s head was looking a little flat at his 4 month check up and to increase his tummy time but he still hates it so much! My son also suffered from a subcutaneous hemorrhage during delivery because of the vacuum the doctor had to use to get him out and I think that might be another cause of the shape of his head. I was a little nervous at the thought of him having to wear a helmet but this video was very informative and a relief to know it’s not too noticeable for them. Thanks again! 🙏🏼🙌🏼



  19. Katie Lyons on October 18, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Thank you for your video my daughters doctor’s have been watching her head growth for almost 2 months they told me it growing one way too much so she turns 4 months on the 26th were they recheck her and depending upon how it goes we will be looking into getting a helmet for her



  20. yasmin on October 18, 2021 at 9:49 am

  21. Anna Sergeeva on October 18, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Thank you for the video. It was very helpful. Your baby is so adorable!



  22. JayBird on October 18, 2021 at 9:55 am

    I saw a video on tiktok, she made a tiktok called "the struggle of the mother of a doc band baby" or something like that… I saw the helmet and was confused… so I searched it up on yt



  23. Jakens Dieudonne on October 18, 2021 at 9:57 am

    Where can i buy that helmet please ? Cant find it on Amazon and ebay got some weird looking one,



  24. D. Torres on October 18, 2021 at 10:03 am

    Thank you! I’m a full picture person and didn’t know exactly what to ask Cranial Tech. I appreciate you for doing this!



  25. Sara Khosravinasr on October 18, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Thank you for the video. Did your baby shake his head a lot while having the helmet? My baby shakes his head a lot specially whenever I take the helmet off.



  26. Alicia 23 on October 18, 2021 at 10:06 am

  30. Jmommy Love on October 18, 2021 at 10:10 am

    My little man just got his 7 months old now



  31. Mike on October 18, 2021 at 10:11 am

    One of my HS classmates likes his head shaved; hindsight I think he was a wannabe cholo, but anyways he sat in front of me in class and I always stared at the back of his head cause it was literally flat. I would feel the back of my head while looking at the back of his to see if my head was like his…



  32. Erum Naaz on October 18, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Mam how I get this helmet



  33. Nancy Da Costa on October 18, 2021 at 10:12 am

    Thank you so much for making this video and sharing your story. I watched this last night and we’re about to take our 4 month old to Cranial Technologies this morning for his flat spot. I’ve been racking myself mad with questions and you hit them – thank you!



  34. christina Flores on October 18, 2021 at 10:12 am

    How long did he need it for? Did you see a difference in his head shape? Plz can you be honest. We just got ours. I’m feeling so many different feelings about it



  35. Yessica Jimenez on October 18, 2021 at 10:14 am

    What the name of the Facebook group?



  36. Francesca Norell on October 18, 2021 at 10:14 am

    Hi can you tell me where the Facebook link is?



  37. Emely Escalante on October 18, 2021 at 10:15 am

    This helped me so much thank you !!!!



  38. Chelsea Hubler on October 18, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Love this video! What about car seats and wearing the helmet? We have the Mesa UppaBaby and I feel like there is barely room for anything else.



  39. Lily El on October 18, 2021 at 10:17 am

    Can you please update as with ur son condition, thanks



  40. Eve Gardiner on October 18, 2021 at 10:18 am

    He looks like such a happy little baby! 🙂



  41. Emily Craig on October 18, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Hes so cute



  42. UrbanFrugal Chick on October 18, 2021 at 10:21 am

    The deodorizer .. is it to spray on the helmet or spray the room?



  43. Arthur Babcock on October 18, 2021 at 10:22 am

    My 3 month old son is going to need the helmet. His case is pretty dang severe. I’m worried about the cost. I know he needs it and we will get it, but it will set us back pretty bad…



  44. Ator Lord on October 18, 2021 at 10:22 am

    Hi dear I have the same problem with my son , his head getting flat and we r waiting to get the authorization may be they will cover some portion of the cost and what you recommend me to do I have go through it or no because I did everything with keep increasing the tummy time as I noticed he is getting better but reshape his head it’s too hard
    Your son is such an awesome and so cute
    Thank you for sharing your journey of your son 🥰



  45. Carlos Pasols on October 18, 2021 at 10:23 am

    Hello- I was wondering what the Facebook group was



  46. BodhiZaffa on October 18, 2021 at 10:24 am

    Millions of years of evolutions… We font need to mess with that. I think you guys are creating an necessary fad. Later when youre feeding your kid McDonald’s and soda, dont be surprised when they get diseases.



  47. alia Patel on October 18, 2021 at 10:24 am

    Helmet online miljayega please tell me



  48. sonam N on October 18, 2021 at 10:25 am

    Can u please let me know if u felt the head difference after the helmet on your baby’s Head.



  49. Kay on October 18, 2021 at 10:25 am

    My baby always sleeps on her back. Even if I tried repositioning her head, she always ends up on the back of her head.

    She’s done plenty of tummy time, other activities but I have no control when she sleeps. And babies sleep a lot. So, I have to opt for a helmet at six months soon.

    Thank you for this.



  50. janelle Villanueva on October 18, 2021 at 10:27 am

    My son needs a helmet but his insurance won’t pay for it at all!! I hope he gets the care he needs somehow. It’s helpful to watch these videos and to know I’m not alone ❤
