|While the helmet was very cute, and The Hawk did find some interesting uses for it. . .|
. . . we are thrilled to be rid of the it!
In all honesty, she wasn't done with the treatment. But we were so finished with it. The beginning of the end started with a double ear infection coupled with a heat rash. She got 5 days of helmet free time to get rid of the rash, and it was magical. Not only could I snuggle and kiss my baby without that silly piece of plastic getting in the way, but Aurelia started rolling from side to side and tolerating tummy time a tiny bit more. We realized that the helmet might be hindering some development. Then came the appointment when her orthotist mentioned the words "second helmet." After six months, Baby A had grown out of Helmet A. Helmet B was just not in the cards for us. I mean, I put so much work into decorating Helmet A. And we were pleased with her initial progress. . . but she wasn't making much progress past the first month in the helmet.

Now the question is what to do with the helmet? And is it possible to smother her with kisses? Poor little kid is always getting smooched on her bald, little head.
