10 Helmet Comments Addie Has Received

I think it is cute!

We are almost through two full weeks of wearing the helmet and all the comments we have got for the most part have been positive, and heartwarming.

But then there was a hand full of questions and comments that left me looking like my dog when confused — head cocked to the side with that was that really just said kind of look.

Which I fully expected going into this, and actually dreaded because sometimes the filter I have on my mouth doesn’t work very well when it comes to my children.

I mean… does your filter work when someone said something shady about your baby?

I put all the good and bad together on a short list to share with everyone who has been so incredibly supportive during our helmet transition here on Baby’s First Year.  You guys have been helpful, and your words sometimes get me through the day!

  • She looks like she was born to wear that helmet! 1 of 10
    She looks like she was born to wear that helmet!
    How reassuring is that?
    VERY! For a mom who is freaking out about this all... yup! I am glad she looks like she was made to wear it. It will help us all for the next couple months!
  • Now she can go jogging at night! 2 of 10
    Now she can go jogging at night!
    My husband found this reflective sticker at the firehouse.
    Then one of the guys said the above... I am wondering whether or not he was serious... but hey whatever I got a giggle!
  • How does she nurse with that thing on? 3 of 10
    How does she nurse with that thing on?
    Um... She just nurses?
    Yeah it isn't the most comfortable thing on earth when the hard plastic is pressed up against my arm, but am I just not going to feed her for three months?
  • These are the best months for her to wear that thing! 4 of 10
    These are the best months for her to wear that thing!
    Got that right!
    Learning to crawl and walk are on our horizon, and what mother wouldn't want just a little extra protection?
    Especially considering we have hardwood floors in our house.
    Plus her brothers think she is a toy, so it is extra protection against them!
  • Is it for fashion or does it have a purpose? 5 of 10
    Is it for fashion or does it have a purpose?
    Um... yes it is for function.
    I don't think I would have my infant wearing a helmet and sticking out when we are in public for a fashion statement at eight months old.
  • What is that smell? 6 of 10
    What is that smell?
    It is a mixture of old mac n cheese and sweat.
    No joke... that is what she smells like by bath time after wearing that thing for a full 23 hours like she is supposed to.
    She sweats like a pig under it... its totally icky!
  • It looks so easy to get on and off! 7 of 10
    It looks so easy to get on and off!
    Nope... it isn't!
    It is a giant pain in the ass to get on and off, and she screams like someone is trying to kill her when I put it on and take it off.
  • I hope she doesn’t lose all her hair! 8 of 10
    I hope she doesn't lose all her hair!
    AHHHHH!
    If one more person says it I may go postal!
    I am really worried about her losing all of her hair. I feel like it is what gives her so much personality.
    Stop reminding me that she might lose it all!
  • Does she have to wear that forever? 9 of 10
    Does she have to wear that forever?
    Nope!
    Only three months, and that is probably three months too long!
  • I love her bling! 10 of 10
    I love her bling!
    I love her bling!
    If she has to wear a helmet... might as well make it cute right?
