Thanks for the encouragement!! It really helps me feel at peace with

our decision. When you have one set of doctors telling you one thing

and the exact opposite with another, you start questioning


Actually, it was neither doctor. I beleive he was a Japanese man-

very nice. I just can't believe they don't do any measurements. All

they said was " there is no facial asymmetry-she will be fine as long

as you reposition. " I found an article online where I could just

tell that this LA team of doctors were not supportive of helmet

therapy. The head of the department was pro repositioning and the

theory that by the time they're 2 years old, their heads will have

rounded out on their own.

Thanks again!
