A Second Cranial Band ?!?!?

Aaagh!  Here's something we did not know was a possibility.  K has outgrown his helmet, but his head is still on the narrow side so we will need a SECOND one!  Here we were hoping we were at the end of this.  The poor guy has had to wear this helmet for months, and now we have to go through at least a couple more months. 

Not to mention the cost.  I think that the second helmet should be discounted if not free.  We paid to have our child's head corrected, and it is not my fault that it did not work with one helmet.  Hanger Orthotics, however, does not see it that way.  They feel we paid for one helmet and we have to pay again for a second one.  Making matters worse is that Hubby started a new job a couple of months ago, which means new insurance with a whole new deductible.  We will essentially be paying for this out of pocket.

I wonder if it would hurt anything to wait a while and see if his head keeps rounding out on it's own?  K's adjusted age is almost 7 months, so he has plenty of time to take a month off, but on the other hand we don't want to cause setbacks. 

Sigh.
