Rachael & her son Adam
“Our baby was breech the whole pregnancy, so when he came out with squashed ears it was inevitable. We thought like everyone that as Adam’s body adjusts to the outside world the ears will also settle. We saw that the ear protruded slightly (which we were not bothered by) and they started to curl forward. My partner works in a school and has seen first hand how cruel kids can be towards those that look different and we didn’t want bullies having an excuse to pick on Adam later in life so after a lot of research we found EarBuddies.
Although worried at first what people would think of us adjusting our baby’s appearance at 3 weeks old, everyone was accepting and congratulating us for our early correction. We kept the EarBuddies on for 4 weeks (1 extra week as I was breastfeeding) and the difference is noticeable.
We are glad that we used them so early (as the earlier you use them the less time they need to stay on) and Adam was not bothered by them in the slightest. It’s crazy that people do not know about this easy way of correcting a baby’s ears and I had some parents looking into getting some themselves for their baby. Thank you so much EarBuddies.”
