Head Straps

Posted by themoneyfamily on May 13, 2009

Last Tuesday we were wandering through the mall. I decided to finally stop at one of the eyeglass stores (Crown Optical) and see if they had anything to help keep Penny’s glasses up. I was looking for things that go on the nose, like I’ve seen in some other kids’ pictures, or different ones that I’ve been told about. All they had was a plain old sport strap – although it can be resized to actually fit Penny’s little head (even Baby Banz are too big for her head and can’t be resized any smaller). We set it up and put it on. It worked – sort of. It had to stay further up on her head to work properly, and it kept slipping from there. But I figured working some of the time is better than not working at all. And if I could find a way to help her breath while keeping her glasses up, then I’d probably keep her glasses on more.

Well, come Wednesday morning, we received a package in the mail. Camille from Framehuggers is working on a new strap for kids glasses. I spoke to her a couple of weeks ago about it, and got her some measurements for Penny. She hadn’t made one sized for babies, but didn’t see why she shouldn’t. So, we got Penny’s new strap in the mail to try out for Camille. It’s cute, and soft, and pink. And it works! It actually hooks on the big letter C behind Penny’s ears, which is flexible. Because of that flexibility, I don’t feel so bad putting a strap on her. I mean, it’s not rigid and digging into her head. There’s room for a bit of movement if the current position isn’t quite comfortable enough.

I wrote to Camille yesterday to give her some feedback, not seeing very much room for improvement. She’s thought of everything – even putting the prickly side of the velcro facing out so it doesn’t irritate Penny’s head. So, we’re helping her evaluate them, and once she starts producing them for sale, I strongly recommend that everyone who needs one gets one!

See how far Penny's glasses slide down her nose?

See how much better this looks? No more problems breathing with glasses on!
