Craniosynostosis Onesies & T-Shirts For Your Cranio Kid!



Cranio T-Shirts: Are there any awesome and funny ones out there?

Q: What do you get when a mom whose son recently had cranial reconstructive surgery just happens to be a graphic designer? A: Cute Cranio shirts!

Necessity breeds invention (in this case, design). I decided that what was available on the market for Cranio Kids wasn’t expansive enough. My 4 month old son had a CVR (Cranial Vault Reconstruction) last week, and I wanted to be able to lighten up this serious situation with some funny and witty clothes for him post-op.  Micah is bald now and has an 8 inch incision from ear to ear and steri-strips covering it (for now), and I want to be able to take him out and for people realize that we are approachable.  They can ask what happened and we won’t get upset. These designs ought to do the trick! Here’s my cutie:

Micah’s sagittal suture was fused. This photo is him one week after his CVR: Wow!

Three of these designs are now available for purchase from CranioCareBears.org (Forgive My Hair, I’ve Had Work Done, and Perfectly Shaped Heads). Summer will be working on a few more soon, and if you’d like one that isn’t already being offered, you may email her and request it! The proceeds from the sales from Cranio Care Bears go to help fund their awesome care packages. Be sure to request a free care package for your child’s surgery week while you’re there!

      CranioCareBears.org is making my onesies now. I’d recommend contacting them to ask for this specific one if they aren’t already selling it. :) I wish you the best in your Cranio journey! I expect your son is past the worst of recovery by now!
