People make me sick!
This is Sunnie's husband. And I have something to bitch about! Why are some parents so selfish? I recently read an article in this local mag here in Charleston. It was about parents who willingly had their child wear a helmet because they had a flat spot on their head. Um...move the child once in awhile! There was nothing medically wrong with their baby. As we all know flat spots correct themselves in time. Meanwhile, MY son HAS to wear a helmet. He was born with craniosynostosis. The soft spots in his head closed too early. He had to have surgery where the doctors had to take a section of his skull out to create soft spots so hi brain could grow. He HAS to wear a helmet to mostly protect his head, but also to help shape it as his skull grows back together. My son NEEDS his helmet. I don't WANT him to wear it because I want him to have a "perfect shaped head." I hate that he has to wear a helmet. So WHY are other parents so selfish that they would willingly force their baby to wear this helmet just so their baby will have a "perfect" head? Come on people! Babies get flat spots if they lay on one side all the time. MOVE THEM to another side. It's not that difficult.
