Today.com has a story on parents decorating their children's cranial bands (helmets used to correct flat spots on babies' soft skulls). Unsurprisingly, Star Wars and other pop culture mainstays have featured heavily. From the post:
California dad Wesley Piercy recently transformed his son’s cranial band – a helmet designed to treat a flat spot on a baby’s head, known as plagiocephaly – into something right out of “Star Wars” by adding an R2D2 motif.
My son had to wear one of these for a few months when he was 12 months or so. My daughter, then three, decorated it herself with a bunch of stickers. We always worried, when going out, that people would see him and fear that there was something horribly wrong with him. In fact these devices are largely cosmetic, like braces but for your head.
