the peds that say the head will round out on its own don't necessarily

know what they are talking about. Most are very ignorant about plagio.

If you check the Olderplag group you'll see these peds are often wrong

and people miss the window for treatment only to find the plagio is

still there later.

My daughter wore a starband for brachy and got good correction.

However her head hasn't really improved any more since she graduated

at 10 mo old. So I attribute all the correction to the band, and don't

think " rounding out on its own " is true. She was early for all her

milestones and walking by the time she graduated, so she wasn't

spending time on her head.
