Hi Totti,

My daughter had brachy too and went from about 96% to 85% wearing a

starband for 5 mo (age 5 to 10 mo). Not all kids grow at the same

rate,and maybe DOCband results would be quicker, but I don't really

know that 10 wks would really be enough. However I think if this was

my only option I would still try to do it.

Have you visited CT? Maybe they would be able to advise you better

about the time frame, and expected outcome. Also you could ask them

about waiting until you return to the US in September and starting then.

Here are some links to sydney's head:

Good luck with your decision, and I hope you can get the

transportation worked out too. It sounds like a lot of juggling, but

if you can help improve his headshape I think it will be worth it.

should say that for everybody his head looks normal (the whole family,

the pediatrics, etc), so I am against everybody to put the band, but I

feel that if I do not do it I will aways wonder whether I could have

helped for his head to be almost perfect.
