Overprotective parents have a favorite new accessory: the baby helmet. But are they taking brain-injury fears too far?

Parents of perfectly normal children across the country increasingly are putting helmets on their babies, a reflection of a growing awareness that early head trauma can have detrimental, lasting effects. Some neurological experts even think there’s a connection between baby bumps on the head and long-term learning disabilities.
 It was after Nolan hit his head hard enough to send him to the emergency room — he had already bumped it a few dozen times — that dad Eric Paris decided it was time to buy a baby helmet. He bought the Thudguard brand.
“It gives us peace of mind. He can play and we don’t have to panic,” said Paris, a San Diego native who works as a military contractor in Germany. “Why risk a hospital encounter?”


HAHAHAHHHAHAHHA
