it varies by orthotist so will vary by who responds but ths gist of what I was told is
0-3 is normal or "perfect"
3-9 is mild plagiocephaly with the majority of "normal" ppl falling in the 3-6 range
9-15 is moderate
15+ is severe
 
I think in most cases they try and aim for a 9 or lower as that is the # most typically recommend banding at.  In our case we went from 15, 15 and 17 to 4, 5, and 6 so we were not recommended to do a 2nd band but I can still see it and if I had the time and money I would have tried to convince them to do another so i guess i would say it depends on what they look like, i would want under 6

measured? What sort of a number are we trying to reach? In the 5's,
3's? I can't remember everything the dr. said....thanks so much!
