Spring is well underway, and we are excited for summer sunshine! ☀️ ☀️ ☀️ With the warm months fast approaching, we wanted to remind all of our awesome #SnugKap families to keep an eye on your baby's body temperature 👶✅

It's no surprise that wearing something on your head will heat you up, so we always want to make sure that we compensate for this extra warmth by keeping baby cooler on the rest of their body. This can look like:

✅ Dressing them in cooler clothing (Ie, a tank top instead of a long sleeved shirt)

✅ Dressing them in fewer layers

✅ Removing socks and/or footwear

✅ Having a fan in their bedroom to circulate cool air while they are sleeping

If you notice that your baby has developed some heat rash under their band (a pinky-red area with little raised bumps), take the SnugKap off and make sure baby is able to cool down before replacing the band onto their head (while following those guidelines above! 👆)

Remember, we are here to help, so if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know! 🤗

Do you have any good tips or tricks to keep your baby cool in the warm weather? We'd love to hear them! Comment below to share with our SnugKap families! 👇👇

Happy Monday everyone! We have some new exciting progress to share with you today: this is the 6-week #SnugKap treatment progress for a little one at our #Burlington clinic!

Based on his head shape measurements from our initial assessment, this little guy had severe #Plagiocephaly, with a nearly 18mm difference in his oblique measurements. He was fit with his first SnugKap at 5 months old, and in just six weeks has already seen some incredible changes! 🙌 We are thrilled with how far he's come, and we can't wait to see how he does in his second SnugKap 🥳🥳

These scans perfectly illustrate the benefit of starting a cranial band program at an early age 👶 The rapid growth rate of your baby's head can be harnessed to our advantage, and that growth can be directed to improve your baby's head shape symmetry very effectively in this age range!

We recommend that any family with questions or concerns about their baby's head shape comes to see us at 4 months old, if possible, so that if treatment is recommended we can take advantage of this growth potential ✅ the optimal time to begin a treatment program is between 4-6 months of age 👍
