- Do nothing and they will have funny shaped heads - not that big of a deal, but there is the possibility of bulging in the front for Emma...it would not be pretty.
- Correct both girls malformations by having them wear helmets. They will probably have to wear them for 4-8 weeks (21 hours/day)
The doctor mentioned that they probably look less and less alike due to their differing malformations if left untreated. With correction, they will start to look more like the identical twins they are. He's pretty confident that both the Brachycephaly and Plagiocephaly will be corrected and they will have nicely shaped heads after the repositioning. So we start the Helmet Heads in a few weeks (he wants to wait until they get to 3 months adjusted age (they were 5 weeks 1 day premature). So we're going to get measured in 2 weeks and they will start the treatment in 3-4 weeks.
I'm giving everyone 1 opportunity to make a joke or make fun of Robin and Emma...but only 1 opportunity...so use yours wisely. Any jokes or jabs after that will not be taken well...we don't want to give them a complex...though this blog will probably do that. I'll try not to take too many pictures during their helmet period.
