But NO WORRIES! It’s a very common condition and the 10 month-old's brain development will not be interrupted…
While recently grabbing groceries at Whole Foods, Kimberly Stewart was spotted holding baby Delilah, who looked snuggly in a strange white helmet!
Unfortunately, Baby D is not preparing for space-camp (just yet!), the bundle of loveliness was born with Plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome).
Dwain Fasco, Clinical Services Manager at STAR Cranial Center of Excellence states:
“Babies are getting bigger, sooner and faster because of the increased standards of nutrition so they find a nice comfortable position in the womb and stay there.”
Babies with the condition wear cranial molding helmets for 2 - 6 month (depending on severity) to ease their heads into a more natural shape. This helps avoid future jaw and ear problems, a common side effect of having a misaligned skull.
Delilah is not an oddity with her baby-helmet, apparently there are currently about 300-400,000 cases of irregular craniums in US!
We’re VERY relieved to hear Bencicio Del Toro’s baby girl is healthy and stylin' in her new head-gear!
