JJ’s daily GOOD NEWS post!
Little Jonas Gutierrez, four months, suffers from severe plagiocephaly or flat head syndrome. The condition means he has a flat spot at the back of his head and the skull is also being pushed out at the sides. Doctors warned that the baby would end up with asymmetrical facial features unless he wore a helmet to correct the deformity. When he came home wearing his new accessory for the first time last week, his big sister Camila (corr), three, noticed straight away – and wanted to wear her helmet too.
For the next few months, Jonas is destined to wear the little helmet so it can mold his head to the proper dimensions.
While older kids might be a little embarrassed by the device, Jonas’s older sister Camila loved it – so much so that she demanded the rest of the family wear helmets to match Jonas’s.
Jonas’s parents Shanya and Gary appreciated the gesture of solidarity and posted photos of the helmet-wearing family to social media. The photos quickly went viral, with users applauding their endearing familial unity.
