Ear buddies are brilliant!! If you are concerned that your baby's ears stick out give them I try. I did, and they worked really well. My daughter was 3 months old when her ears started to protrude (they were perfectly flat against her head when she as born). By the age of 5 months they were noticeably sticky out (at the top especially) and it detracted from her beautful face. As stick out ears run in my family I decided to try ear buddies, since they are a painless way to correct the problem. I kept them on her for 5 months, changing the tape every week to two weeks.
She is now almost 1, and her ear buddies have been off for 3 months. Her ears no longer point out at the top, they are not perfectly flat against her head, but are now on a regular angle.
I think anyone who says not to try it is being unfair to the child. I am sure my daughter would have been teased at some point during school over her ears, and this way she has had them corrected (painlessly) while she was so young that she won't ever even know they were any different.
Help! I've lost one splint Anyone has got a pair/ an odd one that they no longer use??? It looks we need a couple of more weeks to get the ears sorted...
Hello, ladies my baby girl is 7 months old and she was born with normal ears, but ever since birth I've always noticed her sleeping with her ears folded but never thought much of it, didn't think this could actually deform her ears, when she turned about 6 months i noticed her ears were starting to stick out but thought it was normal, then my mom noticed and told me a couple weeks ago,that's when I thought it was becoming serious. It is not a huge problem, but it is starting to become very noticeable and her left ear is sticking out more than the right and now I am after something that will help me. I came across the "earbuddies" but I would hate to have her ears taped for 4 months as suggested on their website and have to shave the hair where the tape goes, then I found this baby bonnette but there is no where on the site that says it could help her ears get normal again, only prevent it. If I use the bonnette every time she sleeps will it help bring her ears back to normal or only prevent it on getting worst? Please if anyone could help with this, im a fist time mom, you can imagine how desparate i am!
