This is Charlie O'Leary Gunn born on October 9, 2010. He is the perfect baby.. always smiling and happy! At 6 weeks Charlie began sleeping through the night (10-12 hours) in his crib. That's when we began to notice his flat head. The Doctor said at his 2 month appointment that it was no big deal, so we brushed it off. In the meantime we switched Doctors and at Charlie's 4 month appointment his new Doctor did not hesitate to refer us to a specialist in Madison, WI. The specialist found that Charlie's "flatness" was severe and recommended the DOC band. After lots of worrying and contemplating we decided to go with it. What's a couple of months in a helmet versus the rest of his life with a flat head? I guess we'll find out!
