Fixing plagiocephaly, or a flat spot on the head, may mean the baby has to wear a helmet

DENVER - Have you ever seen a baby wearing a helmet?
It may be to fix plagiocephaly.
7NEWS Meteorologist Lisa Hidalgo's second child, Mina, has plagiocephaly -- a flat spot on her head.
Hidalgo shared a picture of Mina in her helmet on Facebook to let viewers know why Mina was wearing the helmet and to raise awareness.
"It cost us $1,500 and our insurance didn't cover a penny," said Hidalgo. "It was expensive, but 10 years down the road we won't even remember what we paid. The benefit far outweighs the cost in this case."
Hidalgo said if you have questions about plagiocephaly, email her: email@example.com
"It truly can take a village to raise a child," Hidalgo said.
