These are pictures from 2012, but I didn’t want to lose them!  Zu had some serious diagonal asymmetry going on, due to what was most likely a muscle imbalance in his neck.  We tried therapy for several months to avoid a helmet (we probably waited too long, in fact), but in the end we spent another long string of months in a clear, infant plagiocephaly helmet.

This is Day 1 of helmet wearing.  When seen from above, his head looked like a trapezoid.  I couldn’t get him to sit still to get a good picture of it, but in the above picture you can see one point of the trapezoid (the back point).

and here you can see the frontal assymetry by his eyes and ears (this is still there to a lesser degree, several years post helmet).

We changed out the stickers and decals on his helmet every few weeks to keep the helmet fun and fresh. Here are some of the ideas we came up with, if you are looking to spice up a helmet of your own :)
