I cried a lot too and felt that somehow I had let my baby down

because his head became flat in the back and I felt so guilty. The

truth is that i would have let him down had I not done anything to

correct the problem.

The first few days were an adjustment, but he has had it on for

three weeks and it doesn't bother him or me one bit! Honestly. I

actually am so used to it that when I take it off for his

bath/cleaning I feel like he is missing something! He looks just as

adorable with or without it. I am used to the stares, and I too try

to educate people as much as possible. But I am so proud of him and

that is all that matters!

We went for an adjustment yesterday and they couldn't believe how

much progress Jake has had in only three weeks. If I had to take it

off now, I would be so pleased with the results we have already seen-

and know it is only going to get better.

It's okay to feel sad at first, and it will surely pass. You are

doing the right thing for your baby and that is all that matters.

Good Luck!
