Julia & her Son Ralph
“My name's Julia, and this is Ralph. Ralph has just turned 6 months old, and has finally finished wearing his EarBuddies, with AMAZING results! When he was about 2 months old, I noticed his ears starting to 'cup' slightly. I often talked to friends and family about it, and they all said the same thing - "aww they're fine, they're cute". Yes, maybe now it's cute, but what about when he's a teenager? Kids can be so cruel, and I would hate for him to become self conscious about it. I pondered EarBuddies for the next few weeks, until I finally decided to just do it....and I'm so glad I did!
Ralph's worn them every day for the last 3 months. We managed to keep the tapes on for about 2 weeks at a time. They were tricky to put on at first, but got easier. The worst bit was always taking the tapes off cos he would cry (but not for long). Yes, we had some funny looks, and blunt people would just ask "what's up with his ears?" (which I actually preferred to be honest), and initially I felt a little awkward and like people would judge me, but the amount of people who understood was pleasantly surprising.
From the pictures you can see the before, half way and end result. I'm over the moon. And now, when I show everyone the before and after pictures, they see where I was coming from :) I'm so glad I went with my gut and did this. Thank you so much EarBuddies. Julia and Ralph xxx”
