CPT--head down or not?

Just wondering what your toddlers do for CPT. Do you put them in any head-down positions, have you always done so, or at what age were you told to do so? DS is almost 22 mo. and from the beginning we were told not to put him head down. Since we have changed CF clinic 3 times I'm not sure if somehow someone missed telling us when we should be doing this or if they are still wanting him basically flat. He goes to clinic in April so I will speak to RT then. Just curious what everyone else does!

We were told different things -- each RT has a different way of doing things. DS will be 3 in a few months and we don't put him on an incline because we were told by his CF doctor it doesn't make a difference. And I figure people with the vests don't go upside down.

Thats supposed to be an advantage of the vest--that you don't have to flip in any postion. Frankly, I don't think he would like to be head down anyway.
