“We love EarBuddies!!! Our son had two “cauliflower” ears as we call them here in the States. Really he had a Rim Kink in his ear and a Folded-Over Helical Rim. Our Pediatrician recommended EarBuddies at our one week appointment. We saw results within one week! Putting on EarBuddies was easy - he slept through the whole thing! We highly recommend EarBuddies!”

“I just wanted to email to say a huge thank you! My son was born with Cryptotia and despite this being pointed out numerous times by health professionals when he was born, none of them had any advice or guidance around it! I ended up doing my own research, and I came across EarBuddies! I’m so glad I chose to purchase EarBuddies as it’s really helped reshape my son’s ear! Please see the images attached and thank you again!”

“I wanted to write in and express my huge gratitude for EarBuddies. My daughter Isadora was born with a conchal crus in her right ear. Despite my mother's instinct thinking that something was a little off, friends, family, midwives and health visitors all insisted that it was normal, and all our ears are unique. After emerging out of the first 3 weeks of the newborn haze, I spoke to a friend who’s a paediatrician who suggested EarBuddies as a non-surgical solution to remould her ear within 4 weeks. I felt that it was worth a shot given it seems so much more straightforward the earlier you start.

Given the conchal crus deformity is a little less common, and more complex to fit the splints, we enlisted the help of Mr Anooj Majithia (Consultant ENT Surgeon) who was fantastic in fitting the splint, and taping when she was 4 weeks old. We decided to go back to him after two weeks to reposition the splint and maximise the result that was obvious to us after just two weeks. Mr Majithia couldn’t have been nicer, and gave me full confidence that we were doing the best we could. It also took some of the pressure off me as a nervous first time parent!

“Hello. I attach the pictures of my baby’s ear. He was born with just one folded ear. We are from Mexico. I ordered EarBuddies and applied in the ear at the age of 1.5 months, when they arrived. The last picture is after 1 month of using them. It still has a mild fold but is imperceptible. Thank you for the opportunity to correct it.”

“I used EarBuddies with my 2 youngest children. Best decision ever. Their ears are perfect now. One is 2.5 years old and the other is almost 6 ❤️. When we used EarBuddies with our daughter, the results were amazing! We were talking to friends one day about the shape of our daughter’s ear. They recommended EarBuddies. We hadn't even heard of this before. So we did some research and decided to give it a go.

What if it didn't work? She would be no worse off, as it's a painless process. Yes, you have to pay for the right package, but for us and our daughter, it absolutely paid off. We are so pleased. We tell everyone that talks about their baby's ears.

“I just wanted to share a pic of our EarBuddies results!! My son was 4 months old when we started. I was afraid it would be too late, but after only 20 days wearing the EarBuddies, his conchal crus was GONE. Two months later and it still looks as perfect as the day we took them out. THANK YOU!!”

We purchased the product when Oscar was 2 months old and he was wearing it for 3 months. We regularly changed the tapes weekly and we followed the instructions. Please see attached pictures:”

“Our baby Ava was born with a very noticeable Stick-Out Ear on one side. Thinking that we were on top of things, we brought her to see an ENT at 8 weeks old. The doctor diagnosed it as constricted “cup” ear and told us it would get much worse over time. He also told us that it was too late to intervene because the cartilage had already hardened. I left feeling totally deflated and cried on the way home because he mentioned that we could just “come back for surgery when she turned 5 yrs old”.

I later came across EarBuddies online and got started when Ava was 3.5 months old. Once it was in place, I found myself frequently checking the EarBuddies Instagram to find stories of success. Seeing other people’s improvement kept me hopeful during the 12 weeks of her wearing it. Ava has had the EarBuddies off for 3 weeks now (photo included) and we are so grateful for the results!

I just really hope we can inspire more families who are going through something similar. Thank you EarBuddies!”

“This is Ezra. Since Ezra was born, he had a ‘floppy ear’ that he loved to fold over, especially when sleeping. We mentioned it to the medical providers at his initial well-child visit within the first week of life, but they weren’t concerned. His ear didn’t ‘get better’ - it kept sticking out. We tried using silicone tape to keep him from folding the ear, but the silicone tape squished and flattened the cartilage at the top of the ear. So, we again mentioned the concern to his pediatric team who then put in an ENT referral (when he was 4-weeks old). The ENT team rejected the referral, saying Ezra was now too old to consider splinting. So, I researched online to see if there were splinting options we could try on our own - and found EarBuddies. Ezra used EarBuddies from 4 to 7 weeks of age - we had to switch them out twice as they got wet with spit up, but otherwise didn’t have any issues and are very pleased with the result. Thank you!”

“Our daughter's ears began to really stick out at a few months old. Other kids would make comments like she had elf ears and I knew that we had to do something. We found EarBuddies and started it when she was 4 1/2 months old. She wore them for 18 weeks. I was worried people would judge me for having tape on her ears but most people who did ask thought it was neat there was something like EarBuddies that exists. We are so thankful for EarBuddies!”

“We love EarBuddies! Our son was born on 4/16/23 with a folded-over helical rim. The fold was very slight, and we didn’t notice it for a few days. Once discovered, we asked our pediatrician about it, and she referred us to an ENT. Since ear deformities are considered cosmetic, our insurance company will not support funding of the splints, no matter the brand of the splint. The ENT charges $3,500 for ear molds from another company, so we decided to order EarBuddies and fit them ourselves! And I’m so glad we did. Please see the attached pictures!

“Our son Clay had one stick-out ear at birth. He’s two months old now and today we took off his tape that was on for one month. We’re so impressed with the results! Clay’s grandfather also had the same ear and had surgery for it as an adult. Because of your product, Clay will avoid the unneeded attention that his grandfather experienced (and the surgery!). We had no idea such a treatment existed, and are grateful our pediatrician (Vanderbilt Hospital) made us aware of our options. Thanks so much!”

“My daughter was born with a conchal crus on one side and mild helical rim deformity (pointed on the side). I asked the pediatrician about the conchal crus (not knowing that’s what it was called) immediately after delivery and they said they thought her ears looked “fine”. I had no idea of the potential implications of this - that she may not be able to wear in-ear headphones or hearing aids if needed. I had no idea about splinting, and did not realize this was an option until I was trying to name her deformity around 2 months of age. I was disappointed that I did not order EarBuddies right away at birth since the whole process could have been done in about 2 weeks if started immediately. But it’s a challenging time and our priority at that stage of her life was just surviving!

On the one hand, my daughter was perfect and I didn’t care about her slightly different ear. On the other hand, with this limited window with which you can reshape cartilage painlessly, it felt silly NOT to try (for only about $90!) if there was even a chance she would one day feel self-conscious about her ear or have limitations in its function with headphones or hearing aids. We ordered EarBuddies when she was about 2.5 months old and received them right at 3 months due to an international shipping disruption. We started that day.

We changed the tapes right around 5 days and the shape of her helical rim had already changed dramatically. This was minor and aesthetic only but was really amazing to see and gave me hope that the conchal crus might resolve too. I so appreciate having this option. I appreciate the cost, the quality of the item, the ease of use, the ability to do this yourself, and the international shipping. I am an OBGYN and will share your product with any parent that asks about their child’s ears. It is so simple to use and can prevent much potential suffering. I am so amazed with this product. I only wish it were more widely known about.

Regarding conchal crus corrections specifically, I began molding tape into the shape of the conchal bowl (as described in the conchal crus tab at Step 5 of the Fitting Guide) and placed that molding on top of the EarBuddies molded into a heart shape. We did some trial and error and this worked best for us. While her ears are still a little unique, the shape of the conchal bowl on both sides is dramatically improved. I feel they are beautiful. This was well worth the effort. Thank you so much!”

“Matthew had perfectly normal looking ears at birth. Then at around 2 and a half months his right ear started to drift outwards. We didn't think much of it but as time went on his left ear started to drift too. I noticed this more than my husband and when I brought it to his attention he figured it was no big deal and just to leave it. Time went on and at 4 months the prominence of his ears got more obvious. I then discovered EarBuddies online. I asked my health visitor and midwife about it but none of them seemed to know what EarBuddies were. At 5 months after speaking again to my midwife, she suggested pinnaplasty surgery and said we should wait until our son was old enough to decide on his own. After doing research I decided to try EarBuddies first.

My husband wanted a second opinion regarding EarBuddies and so I booked a GP appointment. The GP knew nothing of EarBuddies and referred us to an ENT specialist. So in July we finally had an appointment for an ENT Doctor to see Matt. My husband's concerns were soon put to rest as this doctor did know all about EarBuddies and its success. So we bought the kit and started when Matt was 6 months old.

He is now 10 months old and the difference is significant. He has worn EarBuddies for 4 months. It was not until he had them on for 2 and a half months the difference really began to show for him. So just to encourage parents out there struggling because they can't see results yet, or just because it's so darn fiddly, I can honestly say... Keep going it's worth it!”

“My initial happiness turned into worry when I first met our first born baby boy at the operating table when I noticed that something was not right with his ears. My husband and I took a closer look and confirmed that his ears don't have the normal shape. We mentioned this to our consultant, midwife, nurse, and any healthcare worker we encountered and they didn't seem to see this as an issue. We knew that this will affect his self-confidence when he grows up so we decided to take matters into our own hands. We first researched about ear correction surgeries which apparently costs thousands of pounds! Luckily I came across EarBuddies.

We immediately purchased without a second thought after seeing great results from other cases. We had to take it off after a week since we needed it off for a photoshoot session. We were so delighted as his ear already looked much better! Two weeks after the second application, his ear is already normal. It's like magic! Instructions are straightforward and application only took around 20 minutes; didn't bother our baby much at all. Our baby never showed any discomfort whilst the EarBuddies were in his ear. Definitely recommend it to all. Thank you EarBuddies, really is life changing for our boy!”

“My son Boden was born with cryptotia, which means the upper part of his ears was tucked under the skin instead of sticking out like most people. After a lot of googling for a solution, we came across EarBuddies and I have never been more thankful. With this simple, easy to use, and inexpensive little device we were able to correct the cryptotia of his ear! I was very skeptical that this little thing would even work. Most of the reviews I saw talked about using EarBuddies to correct stick-out ears, but the EarBuddies website said it could correct cryptotia too so I figured it was worth a try. We placed our order and it arrived in Idaho within about a week. By the time we found this little miracle and started using it my son was four months old, which in baby time frames for correcting ears is actually quite old. However, within about two months of using EarBuddies his ear was fixed!

“My daughter Millie was born in Essex in the UK, with an extra fold of cartilage going through the middle of her left ear. It wasn’t concerning at first but after some research, I found it to be a Conchal Crus deformity of the ear, which could limit her ear canal and make her unable to use earphones. After speaking to our Doctor and Healthcare Workers, they advised that they would observe her ear and offer surgery later in life. I had heard about EarBuddies and did my own research and felt it was worth a try, as I did not want to put our daughter through any surgery.

I purchased the Premium Pack, and found the instructions and fitting very easy. I saw a change in her ear after a few days, and it did not bother her at all. The EarBuddies are comfortable, and she slept and fed as usual. I kept them in for 8 weeks, as she was 8 weeks when they were fitted (she was a breastfed baby). We are more than ecstatic with the results, they are more than we could have imagined.”

“I just wanted to say thank you to EarBuddies for this amazing creation. We started using EarBuddies when Tommy was 6 weeks old. We had noticed from birth Tommy had got a Stahl Ear or Elf Ear as people call it. It also stuck out quite a lot. Although this was cute while he was a newborn, we knew that as Tommy got older this was something that could potentially make him a target for bullies and could be something that made him self-conscious in the future. We decided to do some research to see if there was anything out there that could help, that is when we came across EarBuddies. We were quite hesitant at first as I never wanted to do anything that would make him uncomfortable. We weighed up the pros and cons and decided to try EarBuddies. Once fitted, Tommy was oblivious to the fact he had them in. We kept them in for 5 weeks, taking them out once a week to thoroughly clean his ears. I really couldn't believe the difference. The results were outstanding.

“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.”

“I just wanted to share my success story of my son's ears using your amazing EarBuddies. When he was born, I knew something was wrong with his ear. The midwives told me it was just from squeezing through the birth canal and would go back to normal after a few days. Nothing changed and one night I spent time googling and found this amazing website. This enabled me to find Dr Gault who fitted the EarBuddies when he was about 1 month old. Within 3 months, with lots of persistence, a few setbacks and encouragement from Dr Gault, we managed to fix his ear better than any plastic surgery could have done.

He is now almost 3 years old and his ear is perfect! No one would ever know. I can’t thank the wonderful Dr Gault and the amazing EarBuddies enough! They have saved him from potential recurrent ear infections from trapped water and he will now be able to use ear phones without any issues!”

“My daughter Holly was born with her ear in a cup shape after getting a bit stuck during birth! A week after she was born, it wasn’t looking too much better so we decided to purchase EarBuddies in the event the ear didn’t rectify itself. After fitting them and Holly having them on for just a week and a half, her ear was perfect and finally matched the other. I am so pleased with the results and they really do work! I hope my feedback encourages other parents as it’s the best money we spent!”

“After myself and my older son both had our ears surgically pinned back I paid close attention to my newborn baby Mason's ears, which not only were starting to stick out, but one stuck out more than the other. We researched EarBuddies and figured if we could use a non-invasive method that would save a painful operation in the future it was definitely worth a shot!

7 weeks later we are so pleased with the results! I only wish we knew about these 12 years ago for our other son!! Thank you!!!”

“Our daughter was born with mild prominent ears. Many family members commented on this and our fears of how this would impact her socially in the future began to increase. We found out about EarBuddies at 1 month old and started the process. Just four weeks later, we are finished and beyond happy with her outcome, and the fact that we can avoid the potential need for more invasive procedures to correct her ears when she is older. Thank you!”

“When Molly was born and handed to me, the first thing I saw was an extra fold of cartilage in her ear as my husband brought her towards me. This turned out to be a conchal crus. At her 2 week Pediatrician appointment, I brought it up to our doctor who referred us to an ENT specialist. He recommended we order EarBuddies. When it arrived, he helped us shape the splint and Molly wore it for 2 short weeks. We were planning to just change the tape after 2 weeks and re-apply it, only to find that her ear already looked perfect! We did not even have to put it back on.

We are very impressed with the ease of using EarBuddies and the great results in such a short time. Our daughter will be able to comfortably wear in-ear headphones one day and never have to be self conscious of her ear. Thank you EarBuddies!”

“My name is Danielle and my son is called Jack. We are in Surrey, UK. I have attached some before, during and after photos of the brilliant success we achieved with EarBuddies. When my son was born, I noticed he had Stick-Out Ears that were getting worse as he got older. I spoke to the doctor who recommended to leave them and consider surgery when he was older. This seemed drastic so I researched alternatives and came across EarBuddies. I was worried that they would not work and I had left it too late because my son was already 8.5 months old when I fitted the EarBuddies. He was eating solids and drinking formula milk during the day, but was still having breast milk before breakfast and at bedtime.

It was definitely more of a challenge with an older baby than a younger one. The tapes didn’t cause any irritation, but there were occasions when he would manage to pull part of the tape off or even the entire splint. As his parents, my husband and I were very strict about it and refitted immediately. He wore the EarBuddies 24/7 for just over 5 months. Before splinting, his ears stuck out 2.5cm from his head. I removed the EarBuddies 2 months ago and his ears stabilised after a couple of days at 1.7cm from his head at the furthest point. They are now within the normal range and you wouldn’t notice his ears any more, which is what I wanted.

I am so pleased with the results. For a very small cost (relative to surgery), I have saved him from potential bullying and self-esteem issues. I wish more people, particularly doctors, knew about EarBuddies and could recommend them to parents when their babies are young. It’s such a simple solution. Thank you EarBuddies!”

“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”

“We had our daughter Tess in February of 2021. At first we didn’t notice anything wrong with her ears. But as she got older, they progressively stuck out more and more. By the time she was 3 months old, people were starting to make comments about her ears. We noticed that when she slept, her ears would fold over and that they were sticking out more and more every day. I started researching options online and all I could find was corrective surgery, which we were not interested in. But then I came across EarBuddies.

She started wearing EarBuddies at 3 months old. They weren’t complicated to put on and didn’t bother her at all.

“We started our journey with EarBuddies after my baby girl was born with a lop ear. She got caught in my pelvis during delivery and it caused her ear to fold.

“When our little angel came into the world, we noticed that something seemed odd in her ear, but we did not have any idea about what's going on and we thought it was kind of normal because the baby will grow up and her ear will take its usual form. Time passed and we did not see any progress or change of form. We started to take action and investigated the condition we were seeing. Surfing over the web, my wife found some interesting images that were similar to what we were seeing on our daughter's ear. With this info we found some articles on the web and also some solutions that it might be worth to try it. That’s how we were informed about the EarBuddies solution, and the different cases posted on their website.

The hospital pediatrician was the first to notice it, but did not have a name for it. Two pediatricians told us they weren’t sure what it was and that our son would just have a unique ear. My mama gut told me to try to find answers and my online search quickly led me to the EarBuddies website where I immediately realized what deformity my baby had. It alarmed me to read that people with this deformity may not be able to use in-ear devices like hearing aids. Hearing loss runs in my family, so this was a big concern. We also worried about bullying from other kids in the future. We found a medical practice that would fit him with a similar splint, but it involved a very uncomfortable looking ear piece and was well over $3,000. We decided to take a chance and order EarBuddies.

It was such a great decision. At two weeks old we inserted the splint and taped our son’s ear without him ever waking from his nap. He never seemed bothered by the tapes or splint during the two weeks we kept it in. When we removed the splint at four weeks old, we were amazed. I am so grateful for EarBuddies. People cannot believe the difference when we show them his before picture. Thank you so much EarBuddies!”

“Thank you so much EarBuddies for giving me the tools to be able to correct my son’s ear pain-free. Jacob was born with one ear sticking out and no fold, this was causing his ear to fold over when sleeping which was making it worse. I decided to have a browse on the internet to see if there was anything I could do, this is when I come across EarBuddies.

I told family and friends before taking the plunge and buying the Premium Pack. Everyone thought I was crazy ( your baby is perfect ... of course! ) but I have always disliked my ears and to be honest I wish this was around for my mom to do when I was a baby! It would have saved me a lot of insecurities. So I decided to ignore everyone and do what I thought was best for my son.... and woah the results are amazing!!

Jacob was 6 weeks old when I first fitted his EarBuddies, he is now 12 weeks and we have decided to remove it :)! I think it may put people off having to fit this all yourself however once you get your own little routine it is very easy to fit! ( bath, baby massage and white noise always got Jacob into a nice deep sleep ) ! I followed the instructions word for word, Jacob has not had one sore from the tape, his delicate baby skin is still smooth and healthy! I would highly recommend to any parent. Thank you EarBuddies.”

“Can I just start by saying thank you so much for this amazing super simple solution to what could have been an enormous emotional roller coaster in years to come. I was online searching for an answer as to what age I could have my 3 month olds ears at the time corrected via surgery (for stick-out ears) only to find the answer that really made me quite upset and disappointed. As I was searching I came across EarBuddies and immediately started going through all the information and pictures. I knew straight away I had to try it and am ever so thankful I did.

I ordered straight away and fitted as soon as it arrived after Christmas. Even the kit it comes in is lovely and very well presented. Fitting them was easy once you got the hang of it after the first time. As my son was 3 months at the time the recommended time for splintage was 3 months. After the first two weeks of splintage, while changing the tapes, I could not believe how much the ears had moved in. They had both moved in a good 5 to 8 mm.





I removed them yesterday (after 3 months) and am soooo happy with the results. They moved in 10 mm maybe even more. His ears virtually stick to the side of his head they moved in that much. I sent before and after photos to friends and family who were amazed that such a thing even existed. It is just such a pity that EarBuddies is not more known about as it really does save so much emotional trauma for something so simple and easy to use. I will tell everyone about EarBuddies and now have the proof to show people who may question it.

Thank you so so much from Amy and baby Tyler, who will thank you in years to come 🙂”

“I had surgery for my stick-out ears as a teenager. When C was born, her ears weren't sticking out yet but they looked like they might start, and they slowly did in her first few months. We started with EarBuddies when she was almost 6 months old. She has very sensitive skin so we had to take breaks between taping because the tape and tape removal would irritate her skin. The Medihoney was helpful and any rash or redness was gone after a few days. This was worse the first few times, then her skin became more used to the tape and there was less irritation as time passed.

It's been a few months since the second photo was taken and I'm often checking her ears, worried that they're starting to stick back out like they did in her first few months, but they seem to be staying where the EarBuddies put them! It's such a relief to have avoided surgery and any possible teasing. Thank you so much!”

“After welcoming my baby boy into the world it became apparent he had inherited my ears but only on one side. I have gone through corrective surgery twice on mine and still to this day I’m very self-conscious of them. Many family members said there was nothing wrong with his ear, calling it cute and saying I was being silly. I obviously thought he was perfect in every way but deep down knew that one day he may be bullied for his ear or feel self-conscious just like I do, and I did not want this nor want him to have to have surgery.

When he was 10 weeks old I came across EarBuddies online when searching for solutions to help protruding ears in babies. I felt I had left it too late but after reading some of the reviews I ordered straight away. I thought my husband may be against it, but after explaining what was involved and him knowing how much I hate my ears, he was more than happy to ‘give it a go’.

It’s so simple to fit and my little boy never even seemed to know it was there! I’m so pleased with the outcome. I wish more GPs and HVs knew about this to help others out when their babies are younger! Every healthcare professional I came across in the period he had his tapes on knew nothing about ear splints.

To anyone thinking about it, I 100% recommend these as it is harmless, pain free and for such a short period of their lives.”

“When Baby H was almost a month old I noticed that her left ear didn’t have a full fold, making it look like bat ears, while her right ear was normal. It kept bothering me for a while though I didn’t mention it to my doctor, but everyone assured me it would become normal in time. When she was 6 months old, one night when I was looking thru my little baby’s pictures I noticed her ears were just getting more protruding and very noticeable, as they folded inward every time she lay on her side. Out of curiosity I typed ear correction on google and EarBuddies was the first website that popped up.

I was so overwhelmed with happiness reading all the reviews on the website that I woke up my husband in the middle of the night and showed him EarBuddies reviews. The next morning I called up my pediatrician and he immediately suggested EarBuddies as well, and assured me it would be successful even though she was 6 months old now. We ordered the EarBuddies kit straight away (along with a cute cap and bandana!) and we received it in 3 days. The instructions were very clear and simple and we fitted it when she just turned 6 months old (Aug 2020).

Little H wasn’t bothered by the tape at all. We changed it every 2 weeks and could see progress in 2 months. But we kept it on for 4-5 months just to reassure it wouldn’t go back to previous shape. I was astonished to see that the fold was created where there wasn’t any before! Now my little girl will be celebrating her first birthday this month (Feb 2021) without any ear tapes on and we are so overjoyed that her ears will not be a problem for her self-esteem forever. Forever grateful to EarBuddies and hope that more people are aware of this revolutionary product.”

“Shortly after my son’s birth in September, we noticed that one of his ears was slightly folded over, resulting in a pointy appearance. We figured it was just a normal result of the birthing process, and that his ear would “round out” as he grew older. However, by the time he turned 6 weeks old his ear still had showed no signs of improvement, so we decided to take matters into our own hands and research if there were any solutions to help us. That’s when we came across EarBuddies (and we’re so glad we did!).

After reading more about their product and correctly identifying my son’s ear condition on their website (folded-over helical rim) we decided to begin his splinting treatment. We began when he was 6 weeks old and we were able to complete his treatment a few days after he turned 12 weeks. And what a successful transformation!

“I was bullied my entire school life about my stick-out ears. As a result, I never wore my hair up, never wore headbands and always tried to hide my ears as much as possible. I finally decided to have corrective surgery in my 20’s which did absolute wonders for my confidence and my self-esteem but was a painful and costly process.
When my daughter Olivia was born in late October 2020 I saw that she too had inherited my ears and though she was gorgeous, my heart instantly sank for her. She may never endure the same cruelness I did but if there was even a chance of it, I would never forgive myself for not choosing a quick, painless and non-invasive option sooner.

“I want to introduce you to my little baby Jacob. He was born in April 2020 and today he is 5 months old. I began to notice his little ear very different from the others, his right ear was dramatically open and the other ear had its cartilage very pronounced. At first it was hard to accept it but with the pass of days/months I began to find out through the internet what were the options for this type of aesthetic problems and that it entailed a surgery at approximately 5 years of age (which is what I didn’t expect at first, didn’t accept in any circumstances 😢). I decided to at look options and I found EarBuddies.

I am totally excited about this small change since my baby started his treatment when he was 3.5 months old. Today we continue with his treatment day by day fighting to correct that small detail and I want to tell you that we have less than half of the processes and I am happy with the results. I am happy to know that with the help of EarBuddies I may be discarding the idea of ​​a surgery in the future, thanks to EarBuddies. I will make a future post when the process is over 💙🥰 thank you.”

Final Update: 2 Years Later

“Again I am so happy to have had the opportunity to use EarBuddies with my son and to know that it helped him a lot in the formation of his ear, after he started at 3.5 months. Today he is 2 years and 6 months old and I am very happy because the procedure is over and I feel the satisfaction of knowing that I will not have to think about surgeries in the future. Thank you EarBuddies.”

“Our son, Laureano, was born in March 2020 right at the beginning of the COVID pandemic. He was born with stick-out ears and one flop ear. Our midwife suggested EarBuddies after a disheartening conversation with our family doctor suggesting corrective surgery several years in the future. We did our research and ended up getting an EarBuddies professional fitting with Dr. Damen at Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen. It is a 2 hour drive from our home, each way, but so totally worth it. We are so very pleased with the outcome after 3 months of treatment. Thank you so much, EarBuddies!”

Killian is now 10 months old and we have no regrets with our decision to splint his ear at 1 month of age. We found the entire process with EarBuddies so straightforward and easy from the start. At birth we noticed Killian's right ear looked different from the left. As the days went on we couldn’t help but think of the ‘what if’s’ and wonder if he would be bullied for his ear deformity. After discussing with our pediatrician and Boston Children’s Hospital, we decided this treatment would be best.

We splinted Killian's ear for about 4 months and once removed we didn’t notice any regression! It is truly amazing to look back on the results. We would highly recommend this process as it was so seamless and gave our baby life long results!
Thank you for all of your help & support!”

“When Remy was born his ears were folded up at the bottom. The doctors told me they would ‘right’ themselves but as time went on and Remy was sleeping they were folding over and were getting worse. He has little ears but they were just growing like little cups! I researched what I could do for them and stumbled across EarBuddies. I wish I had found them earlier but was just so pleased I had an option to try before he got too big.

We started Remy’s ear journey at 6 months and 1 day old. We’ve had a rough ride with the tapes as they have made his ears sore on many occasions but we soldiered on and just extended his time that he had them on. We changed the tapes weekly and Remy got used to them being on and sometimes even let me apply fresh ones when he was awake. The best part has been doing them during lockdown as not many people have seen him with the tapes so I’ve been able to avoid any awkward questions. I am so pleased with the result. As you can see from the pictures, his ears are so much better.

“When our son Bronny was born, my husband Jake and I noticed his left ear was different. We noticed that he had extra cartilage in the inner part of the ear on the left side. We didn’t think much of it, we thought it would eventually correct itself. When Bronny was three months old, we started getting a little more serious about finding a solution when we noticed his ear was slightly getting worse, if anything. We called our pediatrician and he informed us that it was completely cosmetic and we did not have much to worry about because Bronny passed the hearing test with flying colors. He said that he would refer us to an ENT in town if we would like, otherwise, surgery in the future was the other option.

For my husband and I, we didn’t feel right just sitting on this and waiting for eventual surgery. My husband did countless hours of research and read numerous success stories on the EarBuddies. Even finding ears that looked very similar to Bronny’s. We sat down one night and weighed out all of our options and quickly came to the determination to give EarBuddies a shot. Between the low price point, countless success stories and alternative option to surgery, we figured that we had nothing to lose. If they helped the reconstruction even a little bit, we felt that would be a big success.

The EarBuddies came in a very reasonable amount of time. We started the splinting process almost instantly. We’re 3 weeks in and we couldn’t be happier. In fact, I have shared photos with my family and friends and they don’t believe it is the same ear. Absolutely incredible and it has left Jake and I speechless. We typically have kept the splints in for 7-10 days before switching the tape and re-adjusting the EarBuddy. Each time we’ve switched out the tape, we cannot believe what we see. Only three weeks in, we cannot wait to see the final product. Updates to come soon.”

Final Update: 10 Months Later

“Bronny completed splinting for 2 full months when he was 4 & 5 months old. Once completed, his ear looked completely different – in the best way possible. After we stopped splinting, we watched his ear shape closely to see if there were any signs of his ear going back to its original state...It did not! We are thrilled to announce that Bronny is now 14-months old and his ear is still as perfect, if not better, than the day we stopped splinting.

A HUGE thank you to the doctor who invented the EarBuddies. A HUGE thank you for getting them shipped to the United States from the UK so quickly. A HUGE thank you to all the people who submitted photos and their success stories. And, finally, the BIGGEST thank you to my husband who did all the research to find this life-changing option. 5/5 stars and I will be recommending anyone with ear deformities to EarBuddies. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“When Yvette arrived into the world I wasn’t surprised to see her right ear was quite squashed as my midwife had been reporting that baby was engaged from 35 weeks and ‘very low’ for a few weeks before that. No one at the hospital including the paediatrician mentioned about her ear and having had a friend who’s baby had a slightly folded ear that straightened soon after birth, I wasn’t initially worried.

One week later the ear was still the same shape so I consulted a friend who is a GP for advice - we are fortunate enough to have private medical insurance which automatically applied to Yvette at birth so I was actually asking the best route for a quick referral. My friend said she had never seen it before but was a member of a forum for other doctor mums and interestingly in the last few weeks someone had posted with a similar scenario and was offered advice ranging from 'leave it, it’s cute', to 'have you tried EarBuddies?'

I immediately looked up EarBuddies and was quickly able to see that Yvette had quite a pronounced Stahl’s Bar. I read through the reviews and instructions, and quickly realised time was of the essence. After a quick chat, my husband and I decided to order there and then rather than worry about waiting for referrals or getting a GP appointment. While we didn’t mind at all what her ear looked like, we thought about 13 year old Yvette who might be bullied for having a Pixie/Spock ear and felt that if we had the opportunity to fix it now we should. We did also do some research into corrective surgery later in life (if we did decide to leave it just to see if it bothered her or she got bullied) and found that for Stahl’s Bar it’s not terribly successful, so this was another factor we considered.

The kit arrived the next day when Yvette was 8 days old and we had already bathed her in preparation. Fitment was really easy following the guide. I breastfed her while my husband applied the splint and tape. We decided that as I was breastfeeding she would probably need the splint on for around 2.5 weeks.

We tried to manage our expectations as Yvette’s ear did look worse than many of the other examples on the website. After a week and a half the tape was looking pretty dog-eared and tatty so we decided to remove it and reapply. We were stunned with the results! The ‘Bar’ was entirely gone and her ear looked normal. We really couldn’t believe how successful it had been in such a short space of time. After taking progress photos we reapplied the splint, this time putting more focus on rounding the shape of the ear. Again I breastfed while my husband applied the splint. She was more alert this time but quite happy having it done. A week later, Yvette not even 4 weeks old, we have taken off the splint and are so pleased with the result.

The ear is now more curved than after 1.5 weeks and looks perfect. We are so glad we just sorted this ourselves rather than wait and go down the referral route*. An inexpensive solution has offered a surgery-free alternative for our daughter which may save her years of bullying and torment in the future. We would definitely recommend this to others.

*Both our community midwife and health visitor said, coincidentally, someone else in the area's baby had just been born with the same affliction a couple of weeks before Yvette. For them it ran in the family so they were aware and raised it with the paediatrician at birth, and have since been given a referral. At 4 weeks old the health visitor said they had still been waiting for that referral to come.”

Update: “We are so thrilled with the result. Yvette is now 9m old and you would have never known. I’ve recommended EarBuddies to several friends since!”

"My baby's name is Andrea and when she was born, she had perfect little, beautiful shaped ears. But I was afraid that she will have stick out ears in future as I have and her older sister has, because she inherited same ears as me. And as time past, this happened. She was very active baby from the beginning, especially throughout the night, and every morning when I looked her ears - they were folded! Every single night! So, until 4-5 months old, her ears were visibly stick out. I was really devastated.

Because I know that aesthetic operation is very expensive in Serbia and our wages are very low, I started to search the internet to find if some other solution exists. And I found your website and EarBuddies! We decided to give a try, and started to splint when Andrea was 6,5 months. We splinted about 16 weeks and results are here.

Just to mention that in some moments was very hard to put splint, especially when Andrea had already 8-9 months old, because she was already aware that she has something on the ears and few times she tried to pull down tapes. But we were persistent. And, we were very satisfied on the end.

Now, I can sleep calm and not wake up through the night to unfold the ears, because when Andrea sleep, ears are not folded any more. As parents, my husband and I are very proud because I know that when Andrea will be older she will be very happy to have beautiful perfect ears! Thanks to EarBuddies!"

"When my daughter was born my husband and I immediately noticed that one ear was misshapen. At first we didn’t think much of it, but after researching, we discovered that she had a Stahl's ear and if we acted fast it could be easily corrected. We debated correcting the ear or not and ultimately decided to do it as if when our daughter was older, and she wanted it corrected, it would require expensive surgery. The children’s hospital we called would charge thousands of dollars to correct one ear. With EarBuddies we corrected our baby’s ear in just two weeks for about $85.

Everything we read said the earlier the better for correcting the ear so I was happy the shipping to the US was fast which let us get the EarBuddies on when she was just 11 days old. My husband and I are so happy with our decision to use EarBuddies and wish more doctors were aware of how easy it can be to correct some ear deformities. None of our doctors knew anything about ear shaping and we were lucky to have discovered EarBuddies when we did."

"Our son was born with a slight deformity in his ears. We were referred to a plastic surgeon who told us it was Stahl's ear. He recommended a device that would cost $3000 to correct his ears. We kept going back and forward about whether or not to do it, because his ears were starting to look a little better over time. We ended up deciding not to, but I did some research online and found EarBuddies. I was impressed with the reviews and the price point so I decided to give it a try. Our son's ears were fixed in just 4 weeks! Very happy with the results."

"Shortly after our son was born, we noticed that the rim of the left ear was folded and the lobe of the same ear was crinkled a bit too. Immediately we expressed this concern to our paediatrician and midwife but they said that is not a big deal and that it would go away on its own. We visited two other doctors, one of them was an ENT doctor. Before setting the appointments we had already read about EarBuddies but we were nervous about fitting them ourselves. Since ear splinting appears in research as a non-surgical correction alternative, we were really hoping that the ENT doctor would be familiar with it and that he would do the fitting instead. But it did not turn out as we hoped.

The doctor said that we would have to wait until our son was older to do the correction and it would be a surgery. We were so dissapointed that so much precious time was wasted and immediately ordered EarBuddies and fitted them ourselves. Our son was 10 weeks old when we fitted them. After two weeks of splintage we noticed a significant difference already. We could not believe it. We splinted for 3 months which is longer than it is recommended because we feared a regression of results. Yesterday we took the splint off, his ear looks amazing and we are so happy with the results. Thank you EarBuddies for such a useful invention!"

"Naturally when your baby is born you think they are perfect and when Polly was born obviously I thought she was the most perfect baby, but I knew from day one that she had, unfortunately, inherited my ears. I think I could even tell in her 4D scan. I had my ears pinned back at 22 and then needed revision surgery which was painful. I hated wearing my hair up and still don’t because I think it’s just instilled in me. I didn’t want this for Polly and I googled to see if there was anything I could do to help.

I came across EarBuddies and ordered a kit. Polly was lucky enough to be born with the most beautiful head of dark hair and the thought of shaving it made me want to cry. I decided to book a consultation and fitting with Mr Gault. I did this and then let my partner know. I thought he would be so against it but having known me most of my life, he knew my hang-ups about my ears, and when I explained what needed to be done he agreed.

Mr Gault was lovely and could see how nervous I was. I explained everything to him and he listened and then carefully fitted Polly's EarBuddies. She was asleep the whole time! She was 2 weeks old. This may seem extreme but I am pleased we have done it. We are happy with the changes it has made to Polly, despite the hair cut! We were worried people may think it cruel but she is our baby and it is ultimately our decision. If you are hesitant, please go for it, we are glad we did."

"I wanted to leave a review to help other parents who may come across this product so they can make a more informed decision since the reviews were an important part of me deciding to purchase the product. I was lucky enough to have a healthy baby girl born without complications. We took her home a few days after her birth and cared for her like normal. No issues. One day when my daughter was a few weeks old a family member dropped in for a visit to see our baby. That’s when she said to me, “did you know your baby has an extra fold in her ear?” I did not notice this up until that point but she definitely did. New mom hormones kicked in and I immediately told my doctor about it.

They said that some babies can have ear deformities due to the way they are positioned in the womb. Although my paediatrician admitted they had never seen a child with an ear like hers, they said it would go away and not to worry about it. That answer didn’t sit well with me especially being a mother and wanting the best for my daughter no matter how silly the issue may seem to someone else. I did some reading on the internet which was very limited. Her ear looked very similar to those with conchal crus deformities. Although there wasn’t much information out there, everything I read stated it’s a cosmetic issue. It doesn’t seem to just go away like the doctor suggested. Also, it stated it was easiest to treat within the 1st few days and weeks of life since the ear cartilage is so soft as newborns and hardens with age. Eventually, if you do not do anything about it and did want it corrected in life later, you could have elective cosmetic surgery that is usually expensive and not covered by insurance.

After reading all this basic information I was not satisfied with my doctor’s response. I asked to see a plastic surgeon to get their opinion on it. Well that was a dead end! They didn’t schedule me for months and I could not contact anyone in the office to get seen sooner. I was worried that the longer you wait the harder it is to treat. Although I thought my daughter was perfect as her mother, I didn’t want to think about my baby girl growing into a teenager, noticing her ear and being insecure about it. Why not do something about it now instead of later risking insecurities? Especially if the only option later is surgery which sounds so extreme to me.

That is when I scoured the internet further and found the answer to all my problems. EarBuddies!! I looked at the site for hours and read all the information I could and other people’s experiences. I thought why not try them? They really were super inexpensive considering how much other options were and considering surgery later in life. After all, if it didn’t work out I could just stop and chalk it up to a failed experiment that was worth a try. It also made me nervous to think about doing it myself but there were very detailed instructions and I’m a healthcare practitioner. I can probably handle it. I ordered it and it shipped to me in reasonable time. I followed the instructions and applied them by the time she was about one month old. I got nervous and definitely changed them more frequently than instructed. I was afraid of skin breakdown. I splinted her for about 5 weeks total. Her ear was a little red during this process but no problems. There was some experimentation and adjustments needed of the EarBuddies as I went through each change to get it to fit and work better. Some people gave me weird looks and told me, “it’s just an ear!” But after that 5 weeks, she has a normal ear with no complications! My family members were surprised by our result and I was a proud mom who felt she did the right thing for her baby girl.

Baby Ear Review of EarBuddies

After 5 weeks using EarBuddies

Fast forward time, it has been a year and you can’t tell my baby ever had anything remotely wrong with her ear. I am so eternally grateful to EarBuddies for giving people a product that truly works in an affordable, easy to follow way that will forever impact children (including my own) for the rest of their lives. I now never have to worry one day my girl will hate her ear, get picked on for it, or try to hide her ear when she gets older. No expensive cosmetic surgery needed in her future. All thanks to EarBuddies and it being an easily accessible, affordable product available for those all over the world. The results are just amazing."

"When Hannah was born in January 2019, we noticed straight away that one of her ears didn’t have much internal structure, was slightly lower than the other and stuck out quite a bit. We left it for a little while and then started to research possible alternatives to ear pinning, along with speaking to midwives and other health professionals who had said there was nothing that could be done as she was too young. We soon found EarBuddies online and were very impressed with the success stories so decided to give it a go.

I was a bit dubious about the fitting at first but the instructions were very helpful, plus I decided to try with help from my Mum (and a sleeping baby - thank you Hannah). The first fitting was very tricky, more so because I was learning and I worried if I was doing it right, but I got there and when I saw a visible result after the first change of the tape I was very impressed. Hannah has been so good through out this process, plus my ability to apply the splints has improved! We started splinting just before she turned 4 months, 3 months down and the results are amazing, she has internal ear structure, the ears appear more aligned at the back and it no longer sticks out.

Both my husband and I are no longer worried about her having to grow up with one ear being very different from the other. Any parents out there who are wondering if it is worth doing……it is!"

"We realised our Daughter Alejandra's ears were pointing out when she was about a month old. I never heard about EarBuddies before until I searched online several times looking for a solution to her ears. At this point she was already 9 weeks old. We decided to go ahead but we also decided to start the splinting when she was almost 4 months old because we were going to be traveling for about 6 weeks. We moved from the UK to Greece and this involved a few trips. Even if starting the splinting later was against the advice given, we still got very good results and we are very happy.

We cannot say it was easy because Alejandra had a lot of eczema and very sensitive skin on her face and head and she went through teething as well. We also could not keep the EarBuddies on for more than 10 days in a row, because her skin was getting very irritated but still with all these difficulties we got very good results after 16 weeks and we think it was very worth it. Alejandra's ears are not perfect but they look normal which was our goal. Thank you EarBuddies, we will ALWAYS recommend you."

"Our gorgeous daughter was born in December 2018. By a couple of months old we noticed that her ears had started to protrude and were continuing to grow outwards. What worried us most was that they would fold over on themselves when she was feeding, moving her head when lying down, or when we put her into the car seat. This caused the back of her ears to catch and rub on things as the cartilage was still quite soft.

As well as the fact that this was uncomfortable for her, we were worried about the possibility of them continuing to grow outwards and maybe be a point of self-consciousness for her when she was older, or a subject of ridicule. We were aware of the availability of ear pinning operations when she was older but we really didn’t like the thought of future painful surgery. We were advised to research EarBuddies by the GP and when we read other parents’ experiences we decided to give them a try.

They were very easy to put on and take off and never bothered our beautiful daughter once, even though she has always been a very alert, active baby and we didn’t get started until she was 4 months old. They were also easy to hide behind pretty hairbands which actually just served to invite more compliments! After only 11 weeks she is now 6 and half months and the EarBuddies have made a huge difference, especially as the cartilage has begun to harden in the correct position. Thanks EarBuddies, we’re so pleased and now definitely know we made the right decision! We really couldn’t be happier with the results!"

"When my daughter Celina was born her lobe was crinkled and her ears stuck out. After doing research, at 4 weeks old we purchased EarBuddies. Everyone who saw them on her ears thought it was great that we were fixing the problem now rather than waiting until she was older and needing expensive surgery.

"My daughter was born in January 2019 and immediately her ears would fold over when holding her, creating a point in the ear and also causing the natural crease in the ear to almost disappear [antihelix not properly formed]. We were advised not to worry that the ears were folding, however after a few weeks it became apparent that the ears were becoming more pointed and that this was going to become permanent if we didn’t do anything.

After speaking to my GP and hearing her experiences of failed, painful ear pinning operations on children I decided to do some research. I came across the EarBuddies website and after reading many parent testimonials and looking at before and after pictures, we decided to give them a try. We said that we would only continue as long as EarBuddies were not bothering her and they didn’t bother her at all. They were easy to apply while she was sleeping and she was not aware of them at all. The tapes didn’t irritate her skin and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. They were also easily hidden by cute headbands.

I would recommend EarBuddies to any parents looking for an easy, pain-free solution to misshapen ears."

"Our son's name is Connor Spears and we are from Dayton, OH. Our son's ear was completely folded (like a taco) when he was born which caused the ear to not develop normally by the fold in his ear being shaped upward. We were told it would straighten itself out by the time we left the hospital. As you can see it did not do that.

After seeing an ENT specialist we were told nothing could be done to fix the ‘problem' except surgery at around 5 years old. We asked the Doctor about this process [EarBuddies] and he said there is no way it would work. The first picture is days after he was born. The second picture is from March 1st. The third picture is from today, March 11. We started using EarBuddies on March 3. Thank you!

"Hi. I wanted to put forward our story for ear of the month as we are over the moon with the results and wanted to share our success. When our daughter was born in January 2019, we noticed straight away that one of her ears was folded and a different shape from the other ear. Despite assurances the ear would correct itself from midwives it remained a different shape and very pointy and sticking out. My partner had suffered with bullying and a painful surgery due to problems with his ears being prominent which I did not want my daughter to experience.

After some research I came across EarBuddies and booked at appointment to see Mr Gault at his clinic on Great Portland Street when Penelope was 2 and a half weeks old. Immediately Mr Gault could see there was an issue that would not correct itself.

Before EarBuddies

He fitted the EarBuddies and immediately managed to shape the ear to a normal shape. We felt very reassured by Mr Gault who said we would have a full cure to her problem within a few weeks. Straight away we could see a difference in the ear shape as soon as the ear buddy was fitted. She was not phased or bothered at all by the ear buddy being fitted or when worn. We found the ear buddy easy to fit at home. She now has a normal ear and we couldn’t be happier for her. Although she was perfect to us and we wouldn’t change her, I couldn't deprive her of an opportunity for her ear to be corrected so easily and quickly without the need for surgery or pain.

This is such a great product and I really strongly believe it should be more widely publicised by midwives and doctors if a deformity is spotted at birth. I would really like to extend my thanks to Mr Gault for such great results. I think there should be so much more awareness of this product as it is such a low cost, pain free way to easily and quickly solve issues with babies ears."

"Our son was born on December 20, 2018. I noticed that his ears looked different to mine and his Father's. I began to do some research online and discovered that he had Stahl’s Ear affecting both of his ears. I first took my son to the Pediatrician who then said that the condition would fix itself with time, or if I was overly concerned, he would refer our son to a plastic surgeon.

I began to do further research on Stahl’s Ear and came across EarBuddies online. We ordered EarBuddies and began the splinting process when Griffin was about 2 weeks old. We continued with the splinting for three weeks. We couldn’t be happier with the results. I would definitely recommend EarBuddies and I wish that medical providers here in the U.S. would recommend splinting instead of surgery."

"Our little boy Alessandro was born in March 2018 and, after about three months, we noticed that his ears had started to drift further and further out. By the time he was 5 months, they were noticeably protruding and we found that they would fold over on themselves when we were holding him in a cradle position, putting a hat on him or putting him into his car seat.

Although our son is the most beautiful thing in the world to us, we were both conscious of the possibility of him being teased for having 'stick out ears'. I had a prominent squint as a child and know first hand how an aesthetic problem can impact on self-esteem and lead to bullying. So we were intrigued when my sister (a GP) told us that she had read about a way of bringing Alessandro's ears back in without the need for surgery.

After doing our research and going through lots of parent testimonials on the EarBuddies website we decided to the plunge and we are so glad we did! As you can see from the before and after progress photos attached, the splints have made a huge difference to Alessandro's ears.

Although we were initially worried that he might be too old for the splints to be effective, we've found the results really impressive. We've even managed to keep up splinting while Alessandro went through teething (and the ear pulling that goes with it!). Although we had a few occasions on which he ripped the tapes off in his sleep, with a little perseverance and taking our time we've manage to stick at it and achieve brilliant results.

Now Alessandro has finished his EarBuddies journey, his ears are looking fantastic. We’ve had so many positive comments about what a huge difference it’s made and couldn’t be more pleased. To any parents who aren’t sure yet, we’d say do take the plunge - even with an older baby it doesn’t take long to master applying and removing the splints and the results are great. Alessandro hasn’t been in pain or bothered at all by the splints and we think he’ll be very happy with the look of his ears in the future. Thank you EarBuddies!"

"We only found out about EarBuddies through researching cosmetic ear surgery due to our baby having a prominent ear. Upon researching, we came across the EarBuddies website. We looked up reviews and decided we would give it a go. Our little boy was already 8 months old, therefore through reading the website we were prepared to have the EarBuddies in for at least 4 months before we would notice any change.

Day 1, I was a little anxious about getting out the baby clippers to clip away the hair around our sons ear however it was manageable. We bathed him and followed the instructions given in the kit. A fairly simple process. I was concerned that as soon as the splint was in and the ear taped back he would pull at it, but he didn't notice it in the slightest.

Day 12, due to our son being quite a sweaty baby the tape had lifted therefore it was time to remove and start again. This was quite tricky and we found his head, behind the ear was a little red so we cleaned the area, applied the cream as directed and left it for 4 days before starting again. However, we could already see the difference in the ear from when we had begun using the EarBuddies 2 weeks ago.

Day 17, we reapplied the splint and taped back the ear again. Our son was not bothered by it at all. Obviously, throughout this whole period people were constantly asking us what was wrong with his ear and when we explained what it was and what it was doing, people looked confused or gave a look as though it would never work.

Day 30 came along and it was time to refresh the tape. We removed the plasters and splint to clean the ear and were completely surprised to see how well the EarBuddies had continued to work. Looking back at the before picture and the post 2 weeks picture we were absolutely amazed! We decided from here we were happy with the result so chose to end the EarBuddies treatment there. Our son was only breast fed up until he was 4 weeks old, and he has been formula fed since. We also began weaning at 4 months so he was pretty much fully fledged on solids when we began using the EarBuddies.

I would highly recommend this product. It needs to be marketed more across mothers / mothers-to-be websites, magazines, groups and social media. I wish I had known about EarBuddies when our son was born however our son had the EarBuddy in for less than 30 days in total from 8 months old and we are extremely happy with the outcome. I couldn't rate EarBuddies highly enough! Thank you. I will forever be promoting your amazing product!"

"I would like to share my experience with you. My baby boy was born with a Stahl's Bar on his left ear, which runs in our family. We heard about EarBuddies through our midwife and ordered when our son was 3 days old. 3 days later we received the order and started using them right away. The results were very good after 2 weeks, when we removed the EarBuddies for our baby's photo shoot. We fitted again 1 day later as the advice is to continue for 3 to 4 weeks.

We stopped using EarBuddies after 3 to 4 weeks, and we are very satisfied with the results. He is now 6 months old and it still looks very nice. We’ve been recommending EarBuddies to our friends and family, and also to other parents. It is very easy to use, and is a small effort for very good results for the rest of their lives. And you help your kids avoid being bullied or having scary surgery in the future. We are very satisfied, thanks!"

"Onze zoontje werd geboren met stahl s oor eenzijdig. Dit komt vaker in de familie. We hebben via onze verloskundige gehoord van earbuddies en hebben dit gelijk besteld toen onze zoontje 3 dagen oud was. 3 dagen later hebben we het ontvangen en zijn we gelijk begonnen met afplakken. Het effect hiervan was zeer goed te zijn na 2 weken. Toen hebben we de verband eraf gehaald voor de babyshoot en na 1 dag weer geplakt omdat het advies is om dit 3 tot 4 weken voort te zetten.Na 3 tot 4 weken zijn we gestopt met het gebruik van de earbuddies en we zijn er zeer tevreden over. Hij is nu 6 maanden oud en het ziet er nogsteeds erg mooi uit. We raden earbuddies van harte aan, het is een kleine moeite voor zeer goed resultaat voor de rest van hun leven. Wij zijn zeer tevreden, dank!"

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to EarBuddies. At 10 weeks, I thought that was the way my daughter's ears would be. Nobody said anything could be done, but I thought this is the 21st century there must be something... and there it was, EarBuddies. I spent the whole day reading the stories and how it all worked. We ordered our premium kit and when it arrived we cracked on. We started Ettie at 10 weeks old. I’m not going to lie, a 10 week old baby who can fight that little bit more was hard work.

After two weeks we noticed an improvement but we also noticed a sore on our baby's ear. I was distraught about it all. I wasn’t sure if I should give up or carry on. I read the FAQs to find some answers. We decided to go for it again and this time there were no sores and I found that it got a little bit easier, 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks it got easier and easier. The finished results are amazing.

I’m so pleased that we persisted and didn’t give up. It can be a stressful time with a new baby and a toddler demanding your attention but we did it and now our baby girl has some newly shaped ears that no longer stick out. If you're not sure about getting EarBuddies for your baby all I can say is what have you got to lose? Thanks."

"Hello, I’m the mother of Carter Gray Johnson and we started the EarBuddies journey when he was 5 weeks old. He had two kinks in his ears from birth, and the results after wearing them for 8 weeks are amazing. After the first week we already noticed a difference. We changed the tapes every week and were amazed at the changes every time we took them off.

"My Daughter was born with both ears folded down (Rim Kink) and after an intense 3+ hour labor I thought it would fix itself. I heard mixed opinions from hospital and paediatrician office that it would stay or was told it would unfold after some time. My daughter was born January 21, 2018 and after a few weeks of noticing it didn’t get better, perhaps a little worse, I knew my husband and I had to do something especially since she is a female and would want to wear her hair up and accessorize with earrings and I didn’t want to draw attention to the issue one day. My mom actually assisted me with research and found EarBuddies and we are so very fortunate that we found your miracle product!!! Before I purchased the splints I even took my daughter to see a pediatric plastic surgeon who recommended another specialist in Philadelphia that does ear splints. When I called for an appointment they told me they did not see babies after 6 weeks so I was already about a month too late by the time I got the push to try and fix the issue (at first I was OK with leaving as is and praying she would grow out of it).

I read everything online about EarBuddies and loved the feedback from parents. I ordered the end of April and it shipped super quick. I was able to begin splinting beginning of May and directions were easy to follow and came with all the supplies clearly marked. The first splinting was a little tough but after that it got easier and I learned that the splints needed to be changed when my daughter was asleep so she didn’t move around. I splinted both ears for 12 weeks and would change at every 10-14 days to check progress and clean. The left ear made almost perfect improvement and you cannot notice there was ever an issue.

The right ear made huge improvement and there is still a slight dip in the cartilage that unfortunately couldn’t be corrected but possibly will bend up and get better as her ear grows and hardens more. The wipes that are given to remove tape are miraculous!!! They take the tape off skin/hair without pulling and hurting. I even ordered more wipes and tape midway of splinting and they shipped and delivered less than a week to get to US!!!!

"When my son Connor was born, I noticed that his ears were folded causing the bottom of the ear to curve up (Stick-Out Lobe) and the top of the ear to be pointed. I thought he was a beautiful baby boy, but I was concerned of how his ear shape would appear as he got older. Being a boy, we plan to keep his hair short so his ears will naturally be exposed at all times! I did some research on the internet and discovered the EarBuddies option for early ear correction. I hesitated at first (was I being vain?) but knew that I would regret NOT trying something when he was little and unaware of the situation. We started EarBuddies when he was around 2 months old and after approximately 6 weeks of taping/splinting, we decided we were happy with the results!

I feel like if he was born with the ears he has now, I would have never thought anything of it. I was amazed at how much the EarBuddies helped in such a short period of time. I have no regrets in buying this product and sparing my son possible teasing in the future!

I loved how clearly all the supplies were labeled and how thorough the instructions were. With my son having SO much hair, the electric razor was so handy as well! I am so glad we decided to purchase EarBuddies and I believe it was worth all the money we spent knowing that we spared our son from more invasive treatments in the future.

I have included pictures from our process. We would love for him to be considered for Ear of the Month and hope you also see the great progress his ears have made from start to finish! And here's one last picture of him now at 4 months old with his fancy new ears and hair growing back! Thank you so much EarBuddies!"

"Good morning, my name is Chris. My wife Melody and I were told by the pediatrician at our 1-week appointment (8 days old), to reach out to a local plastic surgeon for their ear splinting procedure called E** W***. We found out this process would be $3,600 USD. To that, I turned to google searching alternatives and also considered not doing anything.

I ran across EarBuddies and presented the idea to my wife. We were hesitant and scared to do anything DIY with our new baby. We are first time parents so the stress level of this decision was quite high. The detailed instructions on the website made us a bit more comfortable. We placed the order and got EarBuddies first placed on his ears at 3.5 weeks old. We kept them on for a full 4 weeks. We are really pleased with the results.

You can see from birth to day one of EarBuddies there was some self-correction happening, but with the EarBuddies we were confident in adjusting the "lop" of his ear to a more "corrected" position by splinting. We ended up taping both ears, but only one ear had the lop. Thank you EarBuddies for providing a GREAT solution for this baby boy of ours. We might have cried (out of stress) in placing the splints on the first day, but by the 3rd-4th splinting we felt really comfortable. Thanks again!!"

"We have been so happy with EarBuddies! My baby was born with a very rare ear malformation, an inverted conchal bowl. The conchal bowl was pushed-out rather than cupped-in, resulting in a very narrow ear canal. Beyond the cosmetic appearance, I was worried about future risk of external ear infections due to the extremely narrow canal, and functional difficulties with wearing an ear-bud style headset when my baby was older.

I had assumed my baby would one day require an otoplasty. Through internet searches I learned that ear splinting was an option when babies are young, and can help them avoid surgery. I called every otolaryngologist and plastic surgeon in the closest 4 major cities near us, looking for someone who could help us. To my surprise no one performed ear splinting.

I was very lucky to be told about EarBuddies by another mom. I decided I would give it a try, and if it seemed to bother my baby, or if there was lack of results, we would simply stop. After the first week of splinting, when it was time to change the tapes, the results were amazing. My baby's ear looked essentially normal. We kept taping for several more weeks, to ensure the correction would be permanent. The tapes and splint never seemed to bother my baby at all.

My baby is now 6 months old, and it has been over 4 months since we completed treatment with EarBuddies. The ear still looks fantastic. My baby's pediatrician was amazed, and wanted to learn more about the EarBuddies system. Our plastic surgeon wanted to know where we purchased EarBuddies (from the UK website), so that he could recommend it to other patients. Thank you!"

"When Ted was born I noticed one of his ears was completely flat with no curl at all and the other one was flatter than it should be due to extra cartilage running through his ear. I asked various Midwives and Health Visitors about this and no one knew anything about it. Some told me it would fix itself over time and some said it was just how his ears had formed and nothing could be done about it.

I took Ted to the Doctor and they didn't know anything about it either. So I did some research online and realised that he had Stahl's Bar in both ears. I called the Doctor and explained my discovery and it wasn't something she had ever heard of… However it came to light that a collegue of hers (a fellow Doctor) had, as she had used EarBuddies succesfully on her little boy for the same deformity. This gave us the confidence to buy and fit EarBuddies with the guidance of the Doctor.

Ted was just under 2 weeks old when we fitted the EarBuddies. We kept them on for 2 weeks no problem; the plasters did get mucky and I was dying to take them off and wash his ears but we persevered and could see a massive difference after 2 weeks. We were so pleased! We refitted the EarBuddies ourselves again after letting the ears breathe for 24 hours. As I am breastfeeding, we did an extra week.

Both ears now have a lovely curl and we are so pleased we discovered EarBuddies in time, as my only concern had been teasing when he was older. The only issue was that no health professional seemed to know anything about either the deformity or the EarBuddies, and we feel more people should be aware of this, especially in the NHS. Thank you EarBuddies."

"At my daughter's 2 month well-check appointment, I mentioned the deformed cartilage on her right ear to her pediatrician. I told her I wouldn't want to do surgery to fix it because it's just cosmetic, but then she told me about a product called EarBuddies they recommend. After the appointment, I went home and researched and noticed it's from the UK. After seeing the price, I tried to find any sort of knock-off products from here in the US because I couldn't believe with all the success stories and how simple the device looked, that nobody had come up with it sooner. There wasn't anything else.

I emailed the pediatrician and told her I was wary of trying it because it looked difficult to fit and I was worried I'd make it worse if I fit it wrong. She told me she's seen a few success stories personally and the surgeons recommend it as an early intervention too. I discussed it with my husband and we decided that the deformity could cause our daughter to have self esteem issues or be teased when she's older and it was worth the risk to try it now, rather than a painful and expensive surgery later in life. If EarBuddies didn't work, we would feel better that we at least tried, than not tried at all.

Well, it's only been 3 weeks so far, we started splinting at 3 months old, and ITS WORKING! When we take off the splint, her ear looks normal! Attached are progression shots of before splinting, 1 week of splinting, and 3 weeks of splinting. The other picture is another angle of before splinting and now at 3 weeks. The instructions are very clear on fitting the splint and gets it easier with time (as easy as it can with a wiggly baby).

Thank you EarBuddies for creating a product that allows children to avoid surgery and self esteem issues later in life! My daughter will be as grateful as we are."

"When my fourth son Augie was born, one of his ears looked a little 'off.' His ear looked a bit smooshed and pointed at the top and I thought maybe it was from the birth, his position in the womb, or even from breastfeeding, and that it would correct itself. It really wasn't anything too extreme and I wasn't that worried about it. However, by the time he was 6 weeks old, it started to become more and more prominent and very elf-like. I was worried that he may be teased as he got older and didn't want that for him.

"I was so excited to discover that his ear could be reshaped without surgery..."

After some research, I discovered that he had an ear deformity called Stahl's Bar and that it could be corrected as an infant by wearing an ear mold. I was so excited to discover that his ear could be reshaped without surgery and that it seemed to be an easy fix. When I found this awesome, simple device called EarBuddies (that I was able to do myself) I ordered it right away and received the mold very quickly (in about 5 days) considering I live in the U.S.

Augie started wearing the mold at 8 weeks old and wore it for a total of 8 weeks. The process was a little stressful for the first fitting, we had to re-do it the first time! Once I nursed him to sleep for our second try we were able to place it fairly easily. After that first fitting, all other tape changes were much easier, as his ear was already shaped at that point, and then it was just keeping it in place. His ear is beautiful now and we are so excited!

Thank you EarBuddies!"

"When our son was born it became apparent he had a slight ear deformity. His right ear in particular was pointed and slightly folded over but we just assumed it would sort itself out over time.

Unfortunately though it wasn't long before we started to get 'innocent' comments from family and friends. Things such as "aww look at his cute little elf ear" and even comparing our newborn son to Yoda & Dobby! I'm sure no harm was meant but it started to really affect me and I became paranoid about his ear folding when he was held and feeding. I stared to worry about the comments he may get as he gets older and future bullying!! But it was when surgery was mentioned that I decided to Google what options we had. That's when I came across EarBuddies.

After thoroughly reading the website, I was keen to give it a go. I was initially scared by what others might think and my husband took a little talking round, but the whole family has been amazed how well it's worked and I'm so glad we decided to give EarBuddies a try. I decided to be honest when questioned about the tapes, and most people were very understanding. We were even surprised when my husband's best friend knew what EarBuddies were having researched himself in case his newborn daughter inherited his ears!

I changed the tapes every 10 days or so, but wish I'd brought more tapes to start with as cheaper ones don't match up and irritated his ears. I ended up ordering more and paying more postage.

"My husband and I decided that a surprise gender wasn’t adventurous enough for us with our first child and so we took it one step further and surprised one another with our baby’s name. We each chose (and kept secret) a name—my husband a boy’s and I a girl’s. Lo and behold, it was a boy...which meant I heard my son’s name for the first time the hour after he was born. Needless to say, I hated the name. Ha !!

To make matters worse, as the months went on, I began to notice his ears were becoming more and more pronounced. I ignored it for a while but then people starting making comments...”oh look at those cute ears!...awww, whose ears are those?” etc. It suddenly dawned on me - with a name like Wolfric and ears that resembled a bat (albeit an adorable one) my precious baby was most likely being set up for countless hours of cruel elementary and middle school jokes.

"How we kept the ears dry during baths, haha!"

Kids have enough obstacles to overcome with their self-esteem, I didn’t want to add to the issues! So I began researching solutions and stumbled upon EarBuddies. What an awesome system! So simple, affordable, and obviously reputable. And as with any good success story, this one did not come without its challenges (mostly because the majority of the splinting I completed by myself - talk about a test of patience and creativity!)

We began splinting at 3.5 months and finished at 6.5 months. We splinted for one solid month with no issues and WOW what a difference we saw immediately [picture below]. After a couple of days of giving the skin a break, the ears started turning back out. We splinted again for a total of 2 more months, with several breaks in between due to a couple of mishaps - not waiting long enough for the barrier cream to dry which led to an infection; breastmilk seeping behind the tape which created an issue too...but we finally made it and it was worth it.

"When our daughter was born in late August of this year, we noticed that one of her ears was cupped and sticking out. She had a lack of cartilage in her inner ear. The only thing we could think about was her possibly needing surgery when she's older to correct this probably... That is until we found out about EarBuddies.

"EarBuddies has completely reshaped our daughter's ear in as little as 6 days!"

EarBuddies has completely reshaped our daughter's ear in as little as 6 days! We looked at the results on the sixth day to make sure her ear wasn't getting irritated and to our amazement, her ear looked almost perfect! We left the EarBuddy in her ear for 2 more weeks and couldn't be happier with the results. Although the recommended time for us to keep the EarBuddy in her ear was 2 months, we were satisfied as to how well her ear looked at just 3 weeks.

I highly recommend this product! It is so worth every penny! I have attached a before EarBuddies picture of my daughter's ear (1st picture) and after pictures of her ear. Thanks for such an amazing product!!!"

"We have been absolutely delighted with EarBuddies. Olivia was born with her right ear folded in half which started uncurling outwards resembling a cauliflower. Our GP told us she would need reconstructive surgery when she was seven which I was not happy about. I came across EarBuddies by chance online and after an initial fitting by Mr Gault when she was three months, we soon got the hang of the fitting. After three months her ear is perfect. I would recommend it to anyone as it's given such fantastic results without resorting to surgery."

"When our son was born I noticed he had prominent ears and that they were bent over. I thought that this would correct itself after a few days but instead they started to get worse. I looked into ear splinting as I didn't want my son being bullied when he was older. If I could do something whilst he was so young, it would benefit him. After researching and discussing it with our GP, it was decided to fit him with EarBuddies. They were delivered the day after ordering and fitted when he was 15 days old.

Myself and partner fitted the splints easily (helps when baby is asleep). We changed the tapes after 1 week and were amazed by the results! He was able to have his hearing test whilst wearing the splints. The tapes were reapplied and changed again after another week and left for a further week (3 weeks in total). We are really pleased with the results after such a short time and would recommend this product for stick out ears. Thank you EarBuddies!!"

"I would love to share my story and show the success of using EarBuddies on my daughter. When my little girl was born, the only issue with her ears was that the rim was slightly folded over, which was barely noticeable. However within the first few days I noticed that the whole ear folded over when breast-feeding or being cuddled. It wasn’t until she was 7 weeks old that her ears began to stick out. So, when the Health Visitor came around I asked her about the benefits of EarBuddies – she made me feel like I was being completely out of order asking, saying that she couldn’t see anything wrong and that she was perfect the way she was – so I did nothing at this point.

When she was 14 weeks old, they had become more pronounced and luckily my husband admitted that he thought they had to – it was at this point, with the support to go ahead, that I bought the EarBuddies. My first attempt I fitted them with my sister who had also used the EarBuddies in 2015 when she managed to correct the rim kink in her sons ear. It was a stressful process for me but finally we managed to get them on. I had to change the tapes on a regular basis as it was during the heatwave, but it became a lot easier over time as I got used to it. I learnt applying them when breastfeeding was the best time for me.

"After several months we really noticed a change, her ears are now much less pronounced and I am so thankful for discovering EarBuddies!"

After EarBuddies

There are a few points I would share with any parent thinking of using EarBuddies:

  • Go with your instinct as a parent – don’t rely on others telling you that it’s a good decision – people will just say your baby is perfect. To be honest, I thought my baby’s sticking out ears were so cute, however I knew that they may not look this way when she grew up.
  • Remember, especially when fitting them for the first time, that it will be distressing but persevere – I panicked and rushed but wish I hadn’t because I knew she wasn’t in any pain, just upset. Because I rushed I had to redo one side 24 hours later.
  • Buy the premium pack if your baby is over 1 month – I was a bit naïve thinking I was saving money by buying the basic kit even though my daughter was 3 months. I thought I could make the tapes last more than 2 weeks at a time – I did not and ended up having to go back and buy more tapes.
  • Be prepared for a mix of emotions from people – I had someone tut at me, and some people who didn’t see why I was doing it, through to a nurse who thought I was a good mother for trying everything to correct it in a way that wasn’t painful such as surgery in later life.

Thank you EarBuddies for helping me to correct my little girls ears!! I would recommend any parent thinking of using these to give them a try as it's worth the effort!"

"My son was born on 27 April 2017 and since birth he had a left ear anteverted conchal bowl. This is a very rare ear deformity and I noticed this after around 12 days. I should admit seeing his ear like this made me quite depressed. I had never seen such an ear deformity before. I googled day and night about ear deformities and their surgery, called many clinics where ear deformities are corrected and didn't find any solution. During his one month check up his pediatrician said that nothing can be done for his ear malformation and that at the age of 10 years he then can go for plastic surgery to correct it. Another ear clinic as well told me that it is only aesthetic and there is no apparatus or moulding equipment over here in Mauritius or existing that can be used to correct his ear without surgery. Two other ENT specialists as well told me nothing can be done as he cannot be operated and to leave his ear as it is. Non surgical treatment for ear deformities also does not exist in Mauritius.

But as a mother and my son being dear to me I didn't lose hope and continued to google and research about ear corrections. I found non surgical treatments from EarBuddies, Otostick cosmetic instant correction equipment and earwell infant ear correction device. The only solution to my child’s ear deformity was found at EarBuddies, as it ships worldwide, reaches within a short span of time, offers solutions for various ear deformities and is not costly. I finally bought EarBuddies splints nearly 2 months ago. It was quite an easy process as all instructions and guidelines are found on the EarBuddies website.

I started splintage on 14th of June with a positive mind and ended it on 20th July 2017. I followed instructions on EarBuddies website for conchal bowl deformity, made both splints in a heart shape as per instructions and fitted both together in his left ear. Bandage were changed and his left ear checked every eight days. Of course, members of the family used to ask lots of questions when they saw his bandaged ear. My only answer was that he got an ear infection so that they will spare me from further questions. During splintage time, I used to feel worried, whether it will work or not. I saw improvement after the first eight days where the bulge coming outside went inside to some extent. I told myself that I need to continue and have patience with the splintage despite people would question me, and that this is for the betterment and future of my child who would be spared from people's and family members' curiosity, questions, ridicule and my child would not feel low self esteem later in his life because of his ear deformity.

Finally, EarBuddies has been a blessing for my son. Looking at his ear now nobody would believe that he previously had an ear deformity. EarBuddies I would like to say a huge thanks for creating such an amazing product that can save millions of babies from ridicule, low self esteem and costly surgery in future. With a Basic Kit my son's ear deformity has been cured for life. It is indeed a miracle that only EarBuddies splints can do. I will surely recommend EarBuddies splints to other babies having ear deformity as it has been a 100% success in my baby's case. I am really happy and satisfied as well as do not regret having invested in EarBuddies.

Thank you EarBuddies for your clear instructions, guidelines, quick shipping, support and most importantly this simple yet amazing product."

"Dear Earbuddies staff,

I just wanted to let you know how HAPPY we are after my baby completed his 3 month treatment. As I told you in previous emails, he had prominent ears and I was concerned about him getting bullied or too self-conscious in the future. Before trying earbuddies he had worn a similar but more expensive treatment with no results whatsoever. This made me think maybe earbuddies wouldn't work for him either, but I was wrong!! And we are so glad we gave it a try!

"It was much easier and far more comfortable to wear and apply than I thought"

It was much easier and far more comfortable to wear and apply than I thought, even in a very hot climate like the one we have here in the southeast of Spain in spring and summer and on very sensitive skin like my son's. Plus, we could already see results after only 15 days! Here are some before and after pictures for you to see how well it worked.

"EarBuddies is the best and fastest way to prevent a bigger ear problem in the future. The website is very helpful about all the different types of ear deformity and it is very easy to find your baby’s ear deformity and fixing steps. I recommend you do not hesitate to get EarBuddies if you have any doubt about your baby’s ear. Because in the future, you may have a bigger problem and maybe solution is going to be harder. We were very worried about our newborn baby Miray’s left ear, so I made a search on the Web, found EarBuddies, and ordered; shipping was really fast. In just the second day, I could see the progress in her ear.

"In just the second day, I could see the progress in her ear."

We continued to use the splint, she wasn't disturbed about fitting the splint to her ear. But I highly recommend you to get adhesive tape remover. Because it really helps them when you get off the tape. The happiness will come to your house when you see the progress. I am very pleased of using the EarBuddies. I will recommend to all my friends. Thanks for the miracle EarBuddies!

"Yeni doğan bebeğimizin sol kulağında doğduktan hemen sonra ufakta olsa Bi şekil bozukluğu olduğunu gördüğümüzde gerçekten çok üzülmüştüm. Nasıl bir önlem alabiliriz derken, internette yaptığım araştırma sonucu EarBuddies ile tanıştım. Web sitesini okuduktan ve her türlü ince ayrıntıya kadar bilgi verildiğini gördükten sonra ne kadar güzel ve başarılı bir iş yaptıklarını anladım ve hemen sipariş verdim. Kargo gerçekten çok hızlı bir şekilde geldi. Splint'i ilk uygulamadan sonra gelişmeyi görmek evimizde bir mutluluk rüzgarı estirdi. Sizlere tavsiyem bebeğinizin kulağıyla ilgili en ufak bir şüpheniz varsa, hiç çekinmeden bir tane alın ve deneyin. Kullanımı kolay, ileride bebeğinize yaptırmanız gerekebilecek muhtemel bir plastik cerrahi operasyonundan çok daha ucuz ve acısız. Bebeğiniz onun kulağında olduğunu anlamayacak bile. En önemli tavsiyem ise, bant sökücü mendil veya spreylerden kesinlikle almanız. Çünkü bantları sökerken bu olmazsa Canları çok yanabilir. Bununla beraber kulağından çıktığından haberi bile olmayacak. Kesinlikle tavsiye edebilceğim çok iyi bir ürün."

"When my daughter was born it was very obvious her ears where very soft and when sleeping on either side her ears would fold in half causing the tops to have no shape. Like a lot of other parents after seeking all these opinions, I was told nothing could be done and her ears will correct themselves in time. At this point I knew I had to take control and start my own research. I still cannot believe it took this one simple sentence to google (correcting my baby's ears), and voila, there you have it! EarBuddies!

I cannot express the excitement and joy me and my family felt after seeing my daughters ears after only two weeks. The results where outstanding, but we noticed her ears where still very soft, so we continued for 7 more weeks. The results truly speak for themselves. Thank you for this life changing product, you successfully changed my daughters life forever."

"My 9 month old daughter Emilia was a breech baby and packed like a sardine at 8.7lbs in my petite frame, so she had to be delivered by semi elected Ceasarean Section. The doctors and nurses said my daughters' feet were right up by her ears when they pulled her out!! When she was born I noticed she had lovely little ears, but they were extremely soft but flat except her left one was slightly sticking out more than the right one.

I assumed that this was from her position in the womb! I was paranoid when anyone was holding her telling everyone not to let her ears fold over. My mum and Nan said it was an old wives tale. Their words ringing in my ears (no pun intended!), I didn't pay much attention to Emilia folding her ears over constantly, especially when she slept. I did notice that her ears were starting to stick out a bit, but I didn't think much of it.

ear before treatment with Ear Buddies Shapers

Emilia's left ear was particularly prominent.

It was when she was just over 6 months old when I really took notice of a particular photo and realised how much worse they were getting. I typed into Google "will my baby's ears get better as she gets older?" and that's when I discovered Ear Buddies and got my answer, no they will not get better on there own!

I sat on my bed reading every inch of the Ear Buddies website including customer reviews for over an hour and armed with my information, I went to my partner and showed him. We had never really talked about Emilia's ears but we both knew what was happening but too afraid to say. My partner's first reaction was offence but then he came round to it once we discussed it. Of course our baby girl is the most beautiful baby we have ever seen to us, and actually her little sticky out ears were kind of cute! However, we agreed that SHE certainly won't think so when she gets older, she will always wear her hair down and feel self conscious. Then there are the school bullies, if there is anything in our power to prevent her being teased before having to resort to risky, painful surgery then we should grab it with both hands.

We needed to purchase the large kit with Emilia being 6 months old, but if there was a chance to fix our baby's ears and help her out, even if it didn't work we had to take it and it was worth every penny. We put the Ear Buddies on her on 31st December, 2 weeks later there was already a huge improvement!! We couldn't believe it.

"I would just like to provide some very positive anonymous feedback please from myself and my wife who are both health care professionals in the NHS. Your product is effective, easy to use and was really well tolerated by our new born son. I would suggest raising awareness of this great product with paediatric trainees who do the baby checks of new borns in hospital, midwifes and health visitors. For example, do you have a rep who visits maternity units? GPs should also be aware but don't typically see babies until 6-weeks. Our experience was that no health care professional we met knew anything about this treatment and we had to research this problem ourselves. The Fraser et al paper "Development of a screening service for neonatal ear deformity using neonatal hearing screeners and an information leaflet" in International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology in 2013 gave us the confidence to go ahead with it despite nobody else we met being aware of this treatment."

Mr. O, NHS Doctor



"Thank you so much for an amazing product. I was so upset after attending a privately paid consultation to fix my baby's ear that there was nothing they could do. I thought I was out of luck and poor Harry would have to wait till he is older to have his ear corrected. Thankfully, after further research I came across the earbuddies and went straight ahead and bought the full kit.

Due to being told several times by professionals my baby's ear would correct itself, my son was already 6 months old when I started the process. We have splinted his ear for 3 months with no problems whatsoever. Attached are some amazing pictures and we are very happy parents with the results and thank you so much for such a fantastic product."

"My baby girl was born with perfect flat ears. At about 2 months of age they started to fold over when she slept. I noticed this was causing her ears to stick out. I felt sick at the thought of her being teased at school so I searched the Internet for a solution and came across ear buddies. I am from Australia and couldn't find anything else like it locally. I was hesitant as it was an overseas purchase but the process of purchase and delivery was quick and easy.

I put EarBuddies on my daughter when she was three months of age. She has worn them now for 3 weeks and the results are nothing short of amazing. I'm glad I did it and intend on having them on for the full 3 months so they set and stay this perfect. She doesn't even notice them on and applying and removing is a lot easier than I thought it would be. Thank you EarBuddies!"

"Our sons ears were very asymmetrical and the left ear became more and more prominent over time. He was 8 1/2 months old when we started the taping. He is now 12 1/2 months and we are very pleased with the results. We have removed the tape for over a week and have been pleased with the ear staying in place, however it frequently gets folded over so we plan to continue the taping until the cartilage hardens more. He tolerates the tape surprisingly well and it is just part of our routine now.

I also wanted to add that our son has extremely sensitive skin and we have not had any issues with the Ear Buddies system. We apply a small amount of Medihoney with a q-tip where the ear meets the back of his head and did notice some skin breakdown the one time we forgot to use this. We also use the Cavilon barrier spray and gentle adhesive remover. I did a lot of research on ear deformities and treatments, however your website did not appear in my searches until I specifically typed "tape for prominent ears”.

I wanted to thank you, EarBuddies, for helping us prevent future cosmetic surgery and give symmetrical ears to our little boy during his early childhood. I just wish I had discovered this sooner. I hope this helps more families utilize this life changing product."

"Hi! My beautiful baby girl, Emilia, was born with one sticky out ear. Having been teased for the way I looked when I was a teenager I didn't want Emilia to go through the same experience due to her 'pixie ear' but also didn't want to put her through surgery so I looked for an alternate solution and found the EarBuddies system. She's been wearing the splints for 2 months now and her ears look amazing!

"My daughter Charlie was born with perfect ears but as the months passed they began to stick out more and more. My eldest son also has stick out ears and I became concerned that Charlie would have the same issue. It was when I was searching for possible solutions for Harry that I came across EarBuddies.

I immediately ordered them but was sceptical as she was almost 5 months old. She is now 9 1/2 months old and I can not believe the difference!! I only wish I'd known about them for Harry. I can not recommend them enough! I now feel happy that Charlie can grow up without being self conscious of her ears. Thank you."

“We’d like to say thank you for the excellent EarBuddies kit and how pleased we are with the results. Such a simple bit of kit but so effective! Our daughter Scarlett’s right ear was completely folded over at birth and her cartilage very weak which we think is hereditary. My wife had a similar problem at birth and had an operation to correct when she was 5. We hoped not to have to go down this route with Scarlett and also wanted to try and see what could be done now. Fortunately, Google and EarBuddies were my friend and we got the EarBuddies kit ordered, delivered and implemented within 48 hours of her birth! I myself was a little sceptical since her ear had no fold at all but we’re extremely pleased with the results. We kept it on for 2 weeks at a time and for a total of 10 weeks. This is more than advised but we felt we should give it our best shot and waited until the cartilage firmed up enough to be sure about holding its position. Now 4 weeks after the tapes were removed for the final time, the ear has moved slightly but has kept the fold and looks so much better. We’ve attached some photos and labelled so you can see some of the progress and results. We have a million more pictures so let me know if you’d like any more. Hopefully Scarlett could win your ear of the month competition but either way we already feel like winners!”

"Sorry for my english. I suffered with my ears. I had an otoplasty when I was a teenager but in my family history, all the members that had prominent ears in adulthood had their ears corrected.
For this reason I wanted to try EarBuddies even if she's 4 years old and I was not wrong. When my daughter was born her ears were beautiful but then they start to become prominent, especially the left ... When I start to apply EarBuddies splints I could see the first true improvements.
My daughter goes to nursery school and I remove them for exactly 25 hours for week. She is 4 years but they still work very well. My daughter ended the splinting after 9 months, and these are the results. I took measures as you indicated, but only now, the gap is 15 mm. Thanks again for everything.

I was amazed by the result. My daughter, 4 years old, ended the splinting of the left ear after 9 months, and these are the results, I started the 23th september and I finished the 22th June with this ear. The most malformed ear is perfect now. I and my husband  are very happy of the result, and I'm so glad of purchasing your product, you saved another child from future complex.”

“We are from Spain. Since English is not my first language feel free to revise my text if you find grammatical mistakes. Santi, our only son, was born with beautiful ears that, after three months, began to stick out transforming into little bat ears. He's the first family member with bat ears so it seems you can´t have flat ears for granted. My father told me that they will probably correct themselves with age, but my mother wasn't very fond of this idea and asked me to find a way to fix it, since we didn't want our little boy to be teased at school in the future. So I searched through the Internet until I found EarBuddies. After showing the before/after pictures to my husband, we decided to bought a kit. Santi was exactly five months when the kit arrived home, and you can see the results after just one month! Three months more and he will have cute ears again. Thank you very much!

I hope more babies can be helped by using Ear Buddies. I showed it to all my friends with babies the same age as Santi is and they are very interested. I showed it to Santi's paediatrician also, since he usually recommends Otostick, but while Ear Buddies has a remedial purpose, Otostick has only aesthetics results (not permanent) and in my opinion it isn't very suitable nor safe for a baby."

“Clark was born 26 July 2014 He was an undiagnosed breechling and a very long baby in 98th percentile for length! Due to this he was incredibly snug up until his birth and was unfortunately born with a misshapen head which was quite flat on the right side and he also had torticollis which meant he could only sleep with his head on the right side too, which only made matters worse. His ears were very cupped with the right ear being the worst and were constantly folding over which only added to the problem. We immediately set out with chiropractic treatment to improve his muscles and neck movement and thankfully by 12 weeks this had greatly improved as had the shape of his head to some extent. However by 12 weeks it became clear that there was a problem with his ears as they we getting worse rather than better. We were researching surgery options when we came across EarBuddies and were glad to find a non invasive / non surgical option. We put them on at 12 weeks and they have been on constantly for 10 weeks and we are over the moon with the results. Christmas has come early for us!! Please find attached before and after photo which we are more than happy for you to share.”

“We welcomed our baby girl on 10/12/14 and noticed that her left ear seemed a little bent out of shape. I thought it was just folded funny during the delivery, and the doctors said it would most likely fix itself it a few days. Being the skeptical person that I am, I quickly began researching newborn ear deformities. To me it seemed like the descriptions on the web pointed to Stahls Bar, so I started looking for solutions. We made an appointment with a plastic surgeon when she was 3 days old because I wanted to see if there were options to correct it early. He said he had never treated a patient so young and would have to refer me to another specialist in another city, 2 hours away. He also said Stahls is very hard to correct and in many times surgery is the only option, but she would have to wait until she was 6-8 years old. We left the office very disappointed in the lack of options available. That night I came across your product online, and was amazed with the results you posted on your website. I ordered it and it arrived within a week. We fitted the EarBuddies piece in the ear and taped it following the instructions online. It took me a couple tries before I was satisfied with the fitting but once it was on it didn't seem to bother the baby. She was approximately 8-9 days old when we fitted the piece. To our astonishment, we got amazing results in only 2 weeks!!!

We are so happy that we tried your product and amazed with the results. It is unbelievable that the plastic surgeon was not aware of your product and recommended a special prosthetic and surgery that would cost thousands of dollars. Thank you so much Earbuddies!! You saved my baby from some future insecurities and saved us thousands of dollars in plastic surgery!!! Thanks again!!!”

“When my son was born, before we'd even left the delivery room, the midwife had pointed out to us that his ears stuck out, and said "but it's amazing what they can do with surgery these days"! It turns out her honesty was a blessing, because her comments stayed with me and within days of being home, I was on Google, and found the EarBuddies site. Not wanting him to be teased for a moment in his life for something I could've prevented, and knowing time was of the essence, I ordered them without even discussing it with his Dad, although he soon agreed it was worth a try. As he was only 2 weeks old, and I was concerned about making things worse, we first got them fitted by Rachel Hall, a lovely and very helpful Clinical Nurse Specialist trained by David Gault at Portland Hospital. I was incredibly surprised by how easy they were to fit when I changed them after two weeks, following Rachel's original guidance. After only 4 weeks, the result was absolutely incredible. As I was still solely breastfeeding, they kept their shape but were still soft and bending forward when feeding / in the car seat / against a collar etc, so I continued to keep them fitted until he was almost 4 months old, not wanting to risk undoing all the good that had already been done. As he got older, it was definitely more of a challenge, as he started rubbing them, they took longer to change, it was harder to keep them dry when bathing, and they got weepy which meant I had to refit them more regularly. I would therefore definitely recommend fitting them as early as possible. The more GPs / midwives / health visitors / hearing specialists know about your product, the better. None of mine were aware of it, as I found out when attempting to find someone local to fit them. This may put a number of other nervous parents off, as there is a real concern we may do more harm than good.

Interview with Hayley about Ear Buddies | Correct Sticky Out Misshapen Deformed Protruding Prominent Ears

“My daughter was born with beautiful ears, but as the weeks passed her ears changed shape. The tops of both of her ears started to fold over. It became really noticeable. People said she had ears like a 'pixie' and while this could be seen as endearing on a baby, I did not want her to grow up being paranoid of them or worse still, being picked on because of them. Even though she was only 3 months, I started to research what a pinnaplasty might involve. The thought of my little girl going under the knife scared me, so I looked for alternatives. The only one I could find was EarBuddies. The instructions were thorough and simple to understand. Fitting the splits to the ears was a little tricky, but I managed to do it while my daughter was awake. As time went by, I hardly noticed the EarBuddies on her ears. She wasn't bothered by them at all, she didn't play with the splits or the tape and was more than happy to sleep on them. She wore them for a total of 10 weeks and I only had to change them 3 times. I was a little sceptical about how much difference they would actually make, but I was willing to give anything non-surgical a try. How could these little splints possibly work to re-mould the shape of ears? Now I am so thankful I came across the website and this product as they have changed the appearance of her ears dramatically. Now at 6 months, my daughter has her beautiful ears back. She will not remember her 'EarBuddies' experience, but I know she will be grateful to me in the future for intervening.”

“Thank you EarBuddies! My name is Laura and my sons name is Beck. He was born on April 11, 2012. We are now fast approaching on his first birthday! When Beck was born my husband and I were overjoyed. He came into the world in perfect health. We could not have asked for anything more. When I was able to hold Beck after he was checked over by the nurses I noticed his ears were very pointed. I mentioned this to my husband and we both glanced at each others ears noticing no point. I figured if this was all we had to worry about, we could handle that. Beck was two weeks old in the photo below. When my mother came to visit the baby she immediately noticed his ears and was concerned he would be made fun of when he goes to school. My mother began to research online about ways to fix his ears. Most of the sites in the US talked about surgery. Then we found your site. My mother said you should try these EarBuddies. They are inexpensive and do not hurt the baby at all. I ordered the splints and put them in when Beck was one month old. I left them in for about three in a half weeks and his ears were completely reshaped! His ears look great now and people can't believe the before and after pictures. Thank you so much EarBuddies! You have made a great change in my sons life!!! Thank you!”

“ When my son Jason was about 3 month's old, I noticed his ears were starting to stick out quite a lot. I was really worried because I knew that kids are often teased about their ears, but I had no idea what to do about it. By pure chance, I found the "EarBuddies" website and I contacted them immediately. Jason wore EarBuddies for about 3 or 4 months and the results were amazing! He is a very healthy and active 5.5 year old boy now living in Australia. The last thing he will ever to worry about in his life will be his ears!”

"About 9 years ago, the little boy in this video was on television in the UK wearing some EarBuddies. Look at those perfect ears now! He now lives in Canberra, Australia - hence the accent. He has perfect ears thanks to EarBuddies. So lucky I found the website in time for him!

“I found out about EarBuddies when my daughter was about 5 months old. She was born with perfectly normal ears and this only began to change after three months. Her ears were very soft and would fold when in her cot or car seat and were becoming more and more prominent. I was becoming very concerned about how this was going to affect her as she grew older. I started some research after my Mum declared that she was going to pay for her to have her ears pinned back for her 18th birthday, to which my response was that I was sure that she would have wanted something done long before she reached that age. I came across earbuddies through a search on the internet and quickly decided to go ahead but had to convince my husband first, who felt that we should not mess around with her and wait for her to make up her own mind if they were a problem. Several other family members agreed with me wanting to use the system so my husband came around to the idea and we fitted earbuddies when Freya was 5 months old. I was not at all worried about what anybody thought so did not routinely put a hat on her and welcomed any one asking me about it as I absolutely knew that I was doing the right thing for her and interestingly everyone who asked thought it was a fantastic idea and couldn't believe that it was not better known, including my health visitor. I cannot be happier with the result that we have achieved and am keeping the splints on for a bit longer to be sure of the result. I only wish that I had known about it before as my 3 year old nephew was born with cup ear and this may have improved it for him. The pictures are of her before splintage and after 6 weeks of splintage. ”
