Athena is the perfect child! She is generally so happy that she smiles constantly throughout the day. Even while drinking her bottle, she often has a grin on her face. She has recently learned to laugh and I’m in stitches every time that heavenly sound leaves her mouth. At four months old, she’s sleeping through the night and she goes down for a nap on her own with very little fuss. Often I worry if she sleeps too much, which is my only concern. The last time I visited the pediatrician, he mentioned “flat head syndrome” and I’ve worried excessively since his suggestion. Flat head syndrome occurs when one or more joints between the bones of the skull close up too early and the baby’s head becomes deformed. It sounds serious, right? Well it is, but I’ve found a solution. The Baby Moon Pillow acts as neck and head support to alleviate “flat head syndrome”. It’s the answer to our worries!
The pediatrician noticed that Athena’s head was becoming flat and the overwhelming concern crawled around in my brain like a parasite. He said that her head was not severely falt yet, but it could get worse, with the potential of developing “positional plagiocephaly,” also known as “flat head syndrome.” Athena’s pediatrician suggested we try repositional therapy, but Athena disliked tummy-time and continued to lie with her head to one side.
While I was flying back to Canada to visit family, the man seated next to me on the plane started talking about his daughter and the worries he had with flat head syndrome. He then mentioned Baby Moon and said it was exactly what she needed. I ordered one for Athena as soon as I had internet access.
The pillow is a life safer. It’s so versatile! It fits perfectly in her swing and the car seat. It’s soft and cozy, while providing the support she desperately needed. Most importantly, it centers her head while she sleeps. Before we had the pillow, she would always lay with her head turned to the right. We would stay up hours on end re-positioning her head and worrying about her condition getting worse. It was a nightmare. I’d turn her head and within minutes, it would be turned back again. I’d turn it again and she’d wake up. This process followed us throughout the night and no one was sleeping. Now, her head fits perfectly in the donut shape and she can’t turn to the right.
