Thank you all so much for your advice. I was hoping that someone can

tell me that Nouveau Prosthetics is good, then I won't have to be so

concerned. They use StarBand at Nouveau Prosthetics. I heard that

Starband is just as good as DOC band. The only problem is that unlike

DOC band, the practitioners are not necessarily trained.

We have Empire Bluecross Blueshield HMO plan. If we do decided to go

with Cranial Tech., I doubt that we can get anything back...

The thing is that my husband and his family are all against the idea

of having the babies wear helmets. They think that it's so cruel and

that the babies are already cute, even with a slanted face. No one is

perfect anyway so there is no need. The only reason my husband would

let me do it is so that I won't go crazy over this matter anymore. I

am trying to make this experience as painless as it can be,

financially and physically (Hazlet is closer to us than Paramus).
