“Hi, just wanted to message to say how incredible the EarBuddies are! We started the process at 12 weeks and even by 14 weeks we could see a huge difference! We finished splinting at 24 weeks then resplinted until 26 weeks as the ear looked like it was losing its shape. The photos below are now the finished results. Thanks so much 😊"

“Our son had problems with his ears sticking out and we were worried about the impact this might have on his future, but we were determined to find a solution. We did some research and found EarBuddies. At first we were excited but also a little skeptical, so we decided to give it a try. To our surprise, the EarBuddies worked wonders! We could already see a noticeable improvement in his ear shape after just a few days of use. Over the next few weeks our son's ears continued to improve thanks to the EarBuddies!”

“Hello EarBuddies! We’re happy to say that your ear molds have worked well with my son's ears. Our pediatrician recommended you and we couldn’t be happier. This is just two weeks with EarBuddies. The tape in the first photo was put on by the NICU doctor, and we took it off once the EarBuddies arrived. We started it when he was 4 weeks old out of the NICU.”

“It was incredibly shocking that a lot of Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists here in Las Vegas NV didn’t offer this product or anything similar. I had to do my research and even then there were only two products that I found. One had to be fitted by a physician, or this option (EarBuddies!). I’m so glad to have come across your product! We are so happy with the results! ❤️ Thank you!!!!!”

One thing I was interested in when looking into your product is whether the ear would eventually start to move back after a few years. We're very happy to learn that's not the case!

We will now be avoiding a surgery, lots of money, and potential teasing in school. Thank you so much for offering this option! I also wanted to send a current photo! He’s 19 months now, and the ear still looks great.🥹❤️”

“We are from Durango, Mexico. When our baby was born and we saw that his ear was folded, the doctors told us that it was not going to be repaired without treatment. I was looking on the internet and I found the EarBuddies page. I really very grateful and I hope many people know about the treatment because it makes a big change.”

“During a long night feed, EarBuddies popped up on my Facebook, I had to wake my partner and show him immediately. After a few passing comments about our son's ears and noticing more and more he wasn’t ‘growing’ into them, it was a case of what have we got to lose? I ordered them immediately and fitted them the day after they arrived.

I found it easier to clip his hair before his bath and then fit his ear splints after his feed and whilst he was dosing. I always kept a close eye on his ears and as soon as I noticed any redness I removed immediately, sometimes prematurely. Any redness was always calmed with the Medihoney. I definitely recommend buying the additional strips as you do seem to use more than you think! Especially with additional changes. Although the Appeel Wipes were good I would recommend buying the spray, it made removal very easy and didn’t upset my son at all.

We had to stop our journey slightly early as my son played with his ears as he slept and he was starting to peel his tapes which was waking him, but we are still extremely happy with the results! The earlier you start and the younger they are the better!”

It actually surprisingly arrived really fast from UK to Canada. I've used it for 4 weeks and seen a drastic change and improvement in both his ear's shape.

I am so lucky that I found you and for the internet gift that led me to you. I never thought that something exists and could correct my daughter's ear. Even doctors here didn't even care and told me that it's how it is and only surgery can fix her ear, but I believed there would be a solution somewhere in the world. And here you go all the way from UK to Dubai I ordered your product and fixed it simply myself to my daughter's ear and in 1 month a miracle happened.

It seemed too good to be true, but after visiting the website, seeing the testimonies and learning how the product worked we decided we couldn’t afford to not give it a try. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, adhering to the recommended time frame we taped for 4 weeks, starting at 4 weeks old and couldn’t be more pleased with the incredible transformation!

After accepting the fact my son inherited my ears, I began doing research and this is when I came across EarBuddies. I started EarBuddies when Logan was about to turn 4 months old and kept them on for 13 weeks.

“Hello! We purchased EarBuddies in October for our daughter. We were desperate to find something to try to help her progressively worse drooping ears. We were very frustrated because she was already 4 months old, her drooping ears were getting worse (one was almost folding over at the top) and even her Pediatrician didn’t seem to care. So glad we found you!! We knew starting earlier would of been ideal, but we decided to give it a try even though she was already 4 months old.

As per EarBuddies instructions we knew she had to keep them on for 4 months. We were very diligent about cleaning her ears properly, airing them out, applying barrier cream and literally every step of your instructions. The tapes never even bothered her! We finished up her 4 months a few days ago and are so happy with the results and we know she will be grateful one day !! Thank you so much !!! Your product is the only one out there like it! I do wish more doctors would recommend it early on. ❤️❤️❤️ it is life changing."



“Oh my gosh I am so shocked at my sons results!! This is only after 1.5 weeks of using EarBuddies and wow!! His ear was born flopped over from how he was laid when I was pregnant so we only had to splint the one ear and even so early on in his splinting journey he now has symmetrical ears we are so so happy!! "



"I wanted to share this because I wish I had known about this sooner! EarBuddies is amazing! We treated Abbey’s ears for only two weeks with this ear molding system and amazing results so far! Super easy to do at home and dramatic results. We will continue to treat for a while longer but very happy so far! "

“Emma was born with a rim kink in her left upper ear lobe. At first, I thought it was because she had her left hand against her face when she was born and it was pressing her ear. I thought it would pop out in a few days, but when I didn't see any changes after a few days, I started to get a bit worried that she will grow up with a permanent ear deformity. I started googling about ear deformities in newborns and came across EarBuddies. I was hesitant at first and part of me was still hoping that her ear would naturally be fixed, but when she was 2 weeks old and seeing no changes in her ear, I decided to order the kit and give it a try.

Her first fitting was at 3 weeks old. She was asleep in my arms as I fitted the splints and she remained surprisingly asleep the whole time. The tape started to come off after a week, so I took off everything and refitted her. I was very pleased then to see the improvement of her kink after just one week.

The tapes only lasted 7-9 days so I refitted her each time. I was hoping to be done with the fitting after 4 weeks, but at that point she still had a slight kink so I decided to refit her for another week. Getting the splint to the right shape to fix her kink was tricky since I couldn't quite get the splint to push out the kink in the corners of her ear. After another 10 days, I only saw a slight improvement so I was going to end the fitting. But after 2 and a half weeks without splints, I kept thinking about if I could give it another try to make any improvements. Since I had some tape left, I decided to use it up so I don't have any regrets. The tape stayed on for another 10 days, at which point it didn't really make much improvement but I was glad I gave it a last try. Her ear is not perfectly smooth compared to her other ear but much better. I'm very happy that I decided to try EarBuddies early and not wait any longer.”

“Evan commenced treatment at 2 weeks old. He is currently 4 weeks old. We met the paediatrician regarding tongue tie release, which occurred on day 5 of life, and asked the paediatrician about ears, and he recommended this treatment “EarBuddies". Got online and ordered them asap. We are from Ireland and they took a very short time to arrive - approximately 4 days for delivery even with brexit. The results speak for themselves, we are delighted.”

“Our sweet Amelia was born this past fall, and she was precious in every way. In fact, I was relieved to notice that her little ears were perfectly tucked back, and that she did not inherit her mommy's stick out ears. But at 3 months old, I began to notice her ears poking out. I hesitated in ordering the Ear Buddies because most family and friends said "they don't stick out too bad!" It wasn't until she was six months old that her ears were very noticeable sticking out, that we finally decided to make the Ear Buddy journey.

After 4 months of taping, we are finally done and can say, we are so grateful we did it! Her ears are so cute and holding their position perfectly. Many family and friends who see her ears now are so impressed with what a wonderful job Ear Buddies has done.

But it's not to say the journey was always easy... after this experience, here is the advice I would give:

  • Start as soon as possible! I regret hesitating when she was 3 months old. It was much more difficult from 6- 10 months old because she could pull at the tape.
  • Please purchase the skin prep and adhesive remover! We did not buy these "optional" items at first, but so regretted it. After her first week of tapes, her ears were so raw and irritated, that I had to keep them off for a week to heal. After that, the skin prep and adhesive remover protected the delicate skin around the ears.
  • Don't worry about what others think- I struggled with this one at first, wondering how I would explain why my daughter's ears are taped. After a while, I would just put on a pretty bow, and if it came off, I didn't fret about others seeing her tape.

    Thank you Ear Buddies for a wonderful product!”

    “I just wanted to thank you for this product. My daughter was born with one malformed ear. We didn’t know what to do and likely were going to consider surgery when she got older until we found out about ear buddies. Although we were both skeptical at first we decided to try the product. After using the product for a year and a bit we are still shocked as to how well it helped to correct the problem. Her ear was successful reshaped and is perfect and it looks symmetrical to her other ear. We are really thankful for the product and wanted to share this experience. It really was a life saver and provided awesome results!”

    “I bought EarBuddies when my little boy was 3 weeks old as he had quite a curved ear that stuck out compared to the other one. I looked at the reviews and was hopeful they would work for him. I wanted to try to fix it without going down the surgery route when he was a lot older and would cause him pain.

    I fitted it in his ear with the help of my husband which was fiddly but relatively easy after cleaning his ears and shaving his sides; which I was really worried about doing as no one wants to shave their babies hair but I'm glad I sacrificed a few weeks of him having a funny hair cut rather than him possibly getting bullied and needing surgery later on in life.

    “Thank you so so much for creating this home device that was so easy to use. Jude had no issues with us shaving his hair, applying the tape or removing it. I changed it once a week. Never grabbed his ears or anything.

    Our son, as perfect as he was, was already getting comments from family members about his ears. His ears were getting progressively worse and I knew I needed to do something. My teenage daughter is conscious of her ears and said it was the right thing to do as I didn’t want him to feel like she does. So we went ahead.

A few days after he was born I noticed his left ear looked very different from the right and I wondered if there was anything I could do for him aside from surgery. I stumbled upon EarBuddies through a web search and was so happy this product existed! I read all of the reviews I could find and decided to give it a try. It worked great and I am so glad I went through with the purchase.

    While it was in place a lot of doctors questioned what it was/stated they had never seen anything like that. After explaining they thought it was such a neat product and they were astounded at my proactiveness as a parent and I have this company to thank for the great results!"

    "We used EarBuddies when we noticed our daughter's ears were very prominent, mostly facing forward. They were very easy to apply, and our daughter never once fussed over them, or tried to remove them. She never was irritated or red! We didn't start until she was almost 4 months old ("late" to the game) and only used them for 2 months and noticed such a great difference!

    They are much less noticeable and truly make us feel better that she will not be bullied in years to come. We are so thankful that we did not have to use surgical interventions! Thank you, EarBuddies!"

    "My name is Ashley and my daughter Kira was born in June 2018. I noticed her ears stuck out a little when she was born but was not initially too worried about it thinking she would “grow into them.” As she got older they seemed to stick out a little more and there was no shape to her ears. When family noticed too I started looking online and saw that surgery was an option at age 5 which actually scared me a bit.

    I came across the EarBuddies and by then she was already about 8 months old. I wish I had known about them sooner because I think we would have seen even better results. She wore them for 16 weeks and I started noticing improvement within the first few weeks. Her ears have more shape and do not stick out as much. We are so happy we did this for our little girl!

    "Logan was born with a misshapen ear, called a Stahl's Bar. At 2 days old we splinted it with an EarBuddie. 2 weeks later we removed the EarBuddie and his ear had reshaped nicely. The last photo is his ear at 6 weeks old."



    "Our son, O, was born with stick out ears. It wasn't extreme, and we weren't sure whether to do anything about it, but when a family member shouted "Look at those!" when seeing him the first time over Skype, we decided that most other people must have been too shy to say anything.

    We found EarBuddies online, and since O was still only three weeks old, we decided to try them while the wearing period was still short. We didn't even bother using the hat, and we were surprised at how little we were asked about his ears while splinted – with friends, doctors and anyone else, we usually brought it up ourselves if at all.

    Splinting was fiddly but not too hard, and we found it best to do while breastfeeding. For us, each fix lasted about 10 days, and re-fixing the EarBuddies was pretty easy having done it before already. We did have to get extra tape to see out the full term, as breastfeeding meant it would take an extra 25%.

    We're happy with the results and we'll never look at his ears the same way again!"

    "Jenson is now 7 months post EarBuddies and every single day I am so thankful that we was able to correct his ears without the pain that comes with surgery. I really wish they got so much more recognition from professionals such as midwives and health visitors."



    "Even before the birth of my child, I was well aware of Mr David Gault and I knew about his development of EarBuddies. When little Zachary arrived, his ears seemed absolutely perfect, along with the rest of him. However, as the weeks passed, the tops of both ears started to protrude. I gently mentioned this to my wife, who, a little reluctantly, agreed with me. In a subsequent conversation with her, I mentioned EarBuddies, explained how they worked and described what we would have to do in order to correct our baby’s ears. Thankfully she, knowing my personal views on the matter, agreed to go ahead with the procedure.

    At this point, we were due to go on a 2 ½ week holiday to my wife’s family in Eastern Europe. We decided to start with EarBuddies on our return to the UK, when Zachary would be 3.5 months old. In our experience, no one – strangers, friends, acquaintances or family – were openly critical of our use of EarBuddies. Some people were curious. Some were indifferent. Some supportive. I was so grateful of my wife’s support, as she was the one spending most of the time with Zachary. They went to places like the supermarket or his play group, where people were most likely to ask questions about the bandages (which are discrete and can easily be covered with a baby beanie).

    4 months old with EarBuddies fitted

    In terms of fitting EarBuddies, the key for us was preparation and establishing routine. Early on a Sunday morning, we would gently remove the adhesive bandages. Shortly afterwards, he would get a bath, including a shampoo hair wash (which is not possible when the bandages are on). After a minimum of 90 minutes to dry (and some milk for Zachary), I would then apply the splints and bandages, while my wife held Zachary, who would enjoy cartoons on a TV. This process took up the best part of the morning every two weeks, and, in total, we performed seven applications of EarBuddies. I wish we had started the splinting while Zachary was a bit younger, perhaps before we went on holiday, as this would have reduced the number of applications. I am nevertheless so very happy with the results.

    Living with abnormal/deformed ears causes significant life-changing psychological problems. I know this from first-hand experience of having protruding ears. It causes bullying in children and low self-confidence as an adult. An operation at 7 years old to pin them back failed. As did remedial operations at 13 years old and 23 years old. These procedures were financially costly, painful and, ultimately, disappointing. Close to giving up hope with respect to my ears, I came across Mr Gault during internet research. He skilfully reconstructed my ears in 2014 when I was 35 years old. I can’t recommend EarBuddies highly enough. I’m absolutely sure that they have made a significantly positive difference to my son’s life."

    "My little one was born with a Conchal Crus deformity, in which there is an abnormal fold of cartilage dividing the mid portion of the concha. I honestly was at a loss of what to do initially and was worried about an increased incidence of ear infections and other issues as my little one got older with this deformity. I came across EarBuddies online, however, and decided that it was worth a try.

    I purchased EarBuddies and within a week or so received the kit. It was pretty easy to use and my little one was not bothered by the placement. Within one week we saw major improvement already (as seen in the middle photo) and were so excited. Once our treatment time, as recommended, was over, we were amazed at the results. It was as if there was no deformity in the first place! The ear has also maintained the shape months later and looks perfect (as seen in the third photo)."

    "When my Daughter was born at full term it looked as if her little ears had been folded up the entire time she was developing in utero. Her ears had mostly “unfolded” by the time we went to her one month checkup with the exception of her right helical rim. It had a kink in it that almost made it pointed, like an elf ear. We asked the pediatrician at her one month appointment if there was anything that can be done to put some curl into the rim of her ear and were told there’s a surgical option at around five years old. We even contacted an ENT specialist friend of ours who told us almost the same thing the pediatrician had, however he added that the ear is fairly pliable until about six months of age and to mold her ear as often as we can just by working it with our hands.

    At that point we started researching, thinking it must be a fairly common thing and learned there are multiple ear deformities and hers was called Stahl's Bar or Stahl's Ear. So we started researching Stahl's Ear remedies. We found a couple of ear bracing options in the US - very costly, poorly designed, and poorly marketed products - so we kept looking until we found EarBuddies. Before you even buy you can see that EarBuddies is made to correct several different types of ear deformities and malformations, it looked easy to use and the directions are on the website, the product did not require a doctor or specialist to place the splints, and the purchase price was extremely reasonable.

    We ordered a kit and placed the splint when our Daughter was about nine weeks old. We followed the directions and changed the tapes every two weeks, cleaning her ear and letting it breathe for about a day before replacing the splint and tapes. She wore the splint a total of eight weeks. You could definitely tell a difference in how her ear was holding the new, normal shape each time we changed the tapes.

    I’m so thankful we found this product! It was non-invasive, easy to use, cost effective, and gave our Daughter perfect little ears in very little time. The hardest part was trimming the hair around her ears!

    "First of all I just want to say thank you EarBuddies! Maisie was born with her lower lobes sticking out and it wasn’t actually me who noticed but the midwife in the hospital. Initially they just recommended for us to monitor her ears and that “she will grow out of them”. Luckily the midwife who did our home visit noticed Maisie’s ear and mentioned EarBuddies. Two months later Maisie’s ears were no better and her left one was getting worse so I purchased the EarBuddies straight away.

    Initially I wasn’t sure if it was going to work but just in one week it made so much difference as the picture shows! Please see a picture of Maisie's latest (3 week) update. I still can’t believe the difference! Love it! Thank you so much again! Such an amazing product!"

    "'When Baby T was born, he was 5 weeks early and the cartilage was folded over on his ear. I did not want to spend the time postpartum to go see a specialist for something that may correct itself. I did find EarBuddies online. I ordered them for about $90 and used them as much as T would tolerate just placing them in the proper position and using the beanie hat to secure them. I did not even go so far as to tape them as recommended, but they were magical. You would never know today based on his perfect little ears!'

    "We noticed very early after he was born that his ears were not only a little misshapen [Folded-Over Helical Rim] but they also looked like two different ears. At his two week appointment with his Pediatrician, I asked her if there was anything that we could do to help correct his ear shape. She told us that we only had two options. One, we could leave them alone and see if their shape changes as he gets older. Two, we could wait until he was a few years old and if we still were concerned about their shape we could look into getting him corrective surgery. We just did not accept this as an answer.

    We thought that surely there was something that we could do...long story short, I went on the internet and did a ton of research. I came across a message board where a mother had used EarBuddies to correct her sons ears. She shared the link for the website. I went on the website, saw that the earlier you splint them the better. After going back and forth for a few weeks...and more research, we decided to purchase EarBuddies when our son was 5 weeks old. They arrived very quickly! The day they arrived we immediately went to work putting them on. It took a little bit of time to get it right but not too bad, and our son was not bothered one bit by the fitting process! We left them on 24/7, changing the tape, and making sure his ears stayed clean every week. After 3 weeks of splinting the results were nothing short of amazing!

    His ears went from looking like two different ears, pointed and squished, to looking perfectly shaped and almost identical. We followed the directions on the EarBuddies website and left the splints on an additional two weeks to finish out our five weeks. The splints came off when he was 10 weeks old. (We splinted from 5 weeks old to 10 weeks old) and our son is now 14 weeks old with perfectly shaped ears! I am so glad that we decided to order these! Best decision ever.

    When we went back to his Pediatrician for his 2 month follow up appointment, we decided to show his Pediatrician his results and let her know that we were splinting with EarBuddies. She was amazed at his results and honestly was a bit speechless...which we kind of enjoyed seeing as she told us at two weeks that there was really nothing we could do. So glad we didn't listen. Thank you again for making such an amazing product. We feel like our son can grow with confidence and not ever have to feel self conscious about his ears! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    "So agree with you it is amazing product for such a small price . My granddaughter did some research and came across ear buddies and Carter ears were folded - my what a transformation in such a short time ..."

    "I was told by the paediatrician to wait 3 months from birth before taking him to see anyone. She said his ears may have been squashed in the womb and it may sort itself out! Completely the wrong advice, luckily my friend is a gp and she diagnosed stahl's ears. I splinted them for 4 weeks and they are much improved."

    "My baby boy George was born with lop ears on both sides; the right worse than the left. It was sadly the first thing people commented on from day 1 and led to significant anxiety in both myself and my husband. I had no knowledge of how the deformity would progress so started doing some research online. The hospital paediatrics advice was simply to wait and see, but from what I'd read we had a 6 week window before the ear cartilage hardened and case reports of splinting the ear, rather than leaving alone, led to better aesthetic outcomes. We took the plunge and ordered EarBuddies. We fitted them when George was exactly a week old.

    The instructions were easy to follow and George didn't appear bothered by them at all. We reviewed the results after 2 weeks and decided to splint for a further 2 weeks to ensure the best outcome. We are really pleased with the results. Both ears have significantly improved - both with the lop and the general shape of the ear. I would definitely use again and recommend to other parents. Many thanks."

    "Hi. My name is Dev, I’m from New York. Here is our story: Right after my son’s birth we noticed his left ear was protruding and misshapen. I figured it’s probably because of his position in the womb and it will correct on its own. But after 2 weeks passed and we didn’t see any improvement, we became a little conscious about it and started searching online. We came across EarBuddies and decided to try it based on the good reviews.

    We purchased the basic kit and it was shipped and delivered promptly. We splinted his ear at 3.5 weeks, after two weeks we removed and resplinted. Two weeks later we removed it again. The results were amazing!! I’m soo glad we did it and saved my son embarrassment in the future."

    "Started ours a week ago now but fingers crossed it will still fix, as we waited and saw the plastic surgeon. We were quoted $2,200 for both ears plus having to drive 3 hours each week during treatment. I can't wait for our after! Much more wallet friendly for sure!"

    "We did to our son when he turned 6 months, his ear cartilage had not hardened in utero so when he was born his ears were perfect but we started to notice they were unraveling and starting to droop. Wish I knew about them sooner cause would have worked even better if had on longer and if started earlier but he was aware of them after not quite three months so had to stop. Worked amazingly though for the small time we had them on him and made a huge difference!!! Highly recommend EarBuddies!! So much better and cheaper and SAFER than plastic surgery!!"

    "Rivi had ears that were out of shape when he was born (Folded-Over Helical Rim). His older brother never had problems but as a precaution, we thought we’d give EarBuddies a try. They were easy to put on and stayed on well, if you follow the instructions. We took them off sometimes to clean the ears, and then put them back on after, say, a bath etc.

    The hardest part was our family members saying “oh, don’t be silly, you don’t need to put that on him” etc. But now the before and after pics seem to have everyone agreeing that the after pics are much better. So keep that in mind and be sure to ignore the naysayers during treatment. The end result is what counts – do the long-term best for your child, don't let others' short-term beliefs stop you. It will be worth it, trust me."

    "My daughter Carter was born with one ear folded over (lop ear). The doctors said that it would naturally unfold as she grew. This was not the case. She was 3 months old and her ear was not getting better. I started to research different solutions to her folded over ear and came across EarBuddies. I am from Canada and there are no options such as EarBuddies here and I was thrilled that you ship worldwide! I decided to give it a try and see what would happen.

    Needless to say I was blown away by the results. Attached is a picture with her original ear, ear after 1 month and her ear after 2 months. It was very easy to fit and the tapes work amazing and stay on for a long time. Again I am so happy with this product and the results I have achieved!! Thank you for inventing such an amazing product and solution!"

    "My baby was around 3 months old when the shape of his ears started to change due to sleeping position. It got folded repeatedly and started to stick out and looked more pointy rather than round. I know I had to do something before it was too late. I made some research and found out about the EarBuddies from hospital here in the Netherlands. They recommend the use of EarBuddies for newborn babies with misshaped or deformed ears. With confidence, I decided to purchase the EarBuddies.

    My first splinting was a bit of a challenge since my baby moves alot and grabs his ears. Splinting his ears while he’s sleeping was so much easier. Don’t forget to use the barrier film and make sure it’s dry before applying the tape. After 2.5 months of splinting, I was the happiest mom. All of our efforts to keep the ears clean and dry paid off. One of the best decisions I ever made. We are forever thankful to EarBuddies.

    I am happy to hear that our story will be published on the website. I hope it will help other parents who are still not 100% sure in trying the EarBuddies. As I mentioned in my story, a hospital here in Netherlands (Isala) recommends the use of EarBuddies. A plastic surgeon from University Medical Center in Utrecht conducted a study about EarBuddies by using the product to newborn babies for a period of 6 weeks and saw promising results in just short span of time. It is truly a great product and we are forever thankful to the wonderful people behind this invention."

    N.B. In some cases, as above, parents are lucky in that baby’s cartilage is malleable, and therefore moulds easily, and the cartilage then hardens and retains the corrected shape quickly. However, we would always recommend splinting for the full recommended time for best results.

    "Our son Jasper was born with two completely different ears: one that stuck out (left) and another that had a deformity on the top rim (right). We thought it gave him character. It wasn’t until he was about three months old however, that we noticed his stick out ear becoming more prominent. Our main concern was that it would continue to get worse and that he would be teased when he got older.

    I did some research about ear splinting online and called a plastic surgeon's office here in Chicago. However, they informed me that they don’t do it past six weeks old. Disappointed, I searched further and thankfully found EarBuddies, which said he was well within the age range! He wore the tapes for 3.5 months starting at 3.5 months old and we could not be more thrilled with the results.

    "My daughter, Avery, was born with one folded (lop) ear and I did a lot of research into different options for correcting it ..... I would have to pay a minimum of $300 and as much as $3,000. It was after speaking to the local doctors that I came across EarBuddies. I followed the instructions and put in the splint when she was two weeks old, then cleaned and re-taped the splint each week for four weeks. Now you would never know she was born with a folded ear! We are thrilled with the results!"

They no longer stick out compared to when we started. Harry was a breech baby, so I think his ears may have been stuck folded over in the womb! I’ve been recommending EarBuddies to our friends. 💙👍

    "Mr Gault fixed my ears as an adult - his EarBuddies fixed my newborn baby! When I was 10 I had an operation by a surgeon to fix my 'bat ears'. It went horrendously wrong and I had severe ear deformity. Years went by and I was told by many plastic surgeons that the ears were too damaged and nothing could be done. When I was 27, I found Mr Gault who successfully, over a couple of surgeries, fixed my ears. He released them from flat against my head, and brought in the spock top bits and the sticky out ear lobes. His final operation on me actually made my ears smaller. I am so grateful to him for fixing my ears. I remember asking Mr Gault "What happens if my son is born with my ears?" I was told about EarBuddies then and there. "I will remember that should I ever have a child."

    Fast forward to now. I am 40 years old and my son was born. At first I thought his ears were ok. After 1 week they were beginning to look like my ears as a baby. I promptly bought EarBuddies and at 2 weeks of age I applied them for 4 weeks. I had to change the plasters a few times due to washing etc but I got the hang of it.

    I think the difference is subtle but well worth it. I know enough about ears to know they would have got even worse had I not done anything. I am so grateful to Mr Gault for fixing my ears, and even more so for his EarBuddies invention and the great service you all gave me! Pics attached before and after showing his right ear which was the most prominent. I did splint both."

    "It's nearly the exact same story as my son. He was stuck breech so his ears must not have formed properly. They came out exactly like that. No one had ever heard of Stahl bar ears before so by the time we researched & got referred anywhere to have them fixed we'd already done it ourselves in a few weeks with the help of Ear Buddies. Best invention ever thank you. He's 3 now & you'd never be able to tell he was born like that."


    "I would like to say big THANK YOU! I used EarBuddies for both my children and as you can see from the pictures they helped a lot.


    "Touto cestou bych VELMI ráda poděkovala společnosti EarBuddies! Obě mé děti používaly speciální tyčinky EarBuddies ke korekci uší a, jak se můžete přesvědčit z obrázku, dost jim to pomohlo.

    My daughter Lucie got the big and protruding ears after her daddy, who had plastic surgery when he was eight years old. We did not have any idea that there is another way to fix her ears. I randomly looked in some magazines which I got after Lucie was born. I found EarBuddies’ advert and could not believe my eyes! There was the solution for my little girl! We immediately bought the kit (Lucie was nearly 4 months old when she got EarBuddies for the first time) and I have to say this saved her from plastic surgery. She is a beautiful and happy seven years old girl now.

    Když se dcera Lucie narodila, brzy jsme zjistili, že má velké a odstávající uši po svém otci, který prodělal plasticku uší ve věku osmi let. Vůbec jsme nevěděli, že existuje i jiná cesta, jak tento nepříjemný fakt napravit. Poté, co se Lucie narodila, jsem náhodně otevřela jeden časopis pro matky a našla reklamu na EarBuddies. Nemohla jsem uvěřit, že jsem našla něco, co by mé dceři pomohlo bez zásahu doktorů! Náhle jsem měla řešení přímo před očima! Okamžitě jsem obědnala sadu EarBuddies (Lucii byly 4 měsíce, když jsme jí poprvé EarBuddies přilepili k ouškům) a musím říci, že tahla maličkost ji opravdu zachránila před plastikou. Nyní je z ní krásná a šťastná sedmiletá holčička.

    Lucie after 12 Weeks

    My son Arthur doesn’t have such ears as Lucie, but I used EarBuddies just in case and I think they helped him little bit too. Both children wore EarBuddies over 12 weeks. I must mention, that it can be a bit difficult to apply EarBuddies on the ears to such a small child, but be consistent and hold as long as it is needed, I bet you will appreciate the great result!

    Syn Artur nezdědil takové uši, jako Lucie, jen trošku se nám s manželem zdálo, že mu uši odstávají, tak jsem pro jistotu EarBuddies lepila k ouškům i jemu, kdyby náhodou... Myslím, že mu tyhle malinké tyčinky taky docela pomohly. Obě mé děti nosily EarBuddies více jak 12 týdnů. Musím take zmínit fakt, že zpočátku se může zdát jako velmi obtížné lepit EarBuddies k ouškům tak malému dítěti, ale buďte důslední a vydržte tak dlouho, jak jen bude potřeba. Vsadím se, že výsledek určitě oceníte!

    I will be more than happy to share my story and pictures of my kids with other parents. Hope this will help them to decide what to do. It is worth it. Thank you again."

    Velmi ráda se podělím o náš příběh s ostatními rodiči. Doufám, že jim to pomůže se rozhodnout, co dělat v podobném případě. Určitě to stojí za to. Ještě jednou moc děkuji."

    "My little girl was born with sticky out ears which also didn’t have much shape. I looked at EarBuddies straight away but delayed putting them on. I finally put them on when she was 3 months old and after 8 weeks the results are amazing. As you can see they no longer stick out and have so much more shape. Emotionally it wasn’t an easy thing to do to my baby but I’m so happy I did. Thank you EarBuddies!"

    "With the birth of our daughter in November 2017, we noticed she had signs of lop ear on her right ear, which did not improve within the first few days after birth. We found the EarBuddies system after searching online for support, and ordered them immediately. After putting the splints in place when our daughter was 3 weeks old, we saw noticeable change after the first 10 days, and continued the splinting for a total of 4 weeks.

    Now that the new year has come, and our daughter's splint has been removed, her ears both look perfect and symmetrical. We truly got a precious New Year's gift by using the system. Thank you EarBuddies! We will happily recommend this product based on the success of our daughters treatment.

    "We took my son, Jesse, to see Dr. David Gault when he was almost 4 months old, as he had an ear which would always fold over and cause a bat ear effect. This got progressively more noticeable the older he got. David Gault fitted the splints for us, and we have continued to use them religiously, only changing them every 2 weeks. Jesse has had the splints in place for the advised 3 months now and we have had the splints out for 48 hours with no movement of the ear.

I first realised when my daughter was 6 months that her ears were starting to stick out a lot. I tried using hairbands to keep her ears down but that didn't work at all as she kept pulling it off. Then I came across EarBuddies which turned out to work amazingly! She has only worn the splints for 1 month so far and what a difference it has made. I am so grateful I came across EarBuddies. Thank you once again :) "

I did a little internet research and came across Earbuddies - it seemed too good to be true! I figured that I didn't have anything to lose by trying them out, but honestly didn't expect much. We put on the EarBuddies when my son was four weeks old and kept them on for five weeks, and the results are nothing short of amazing. Thank you EarBuddies!"

    "Our bundle of joy arrived on 09th August 2016. When we looked at the baby carefully, we noticed that her ears missed the upper fold and they appeared wide open. Upon consulting the doctor, we were told it would most likely fix by itself in few weeks’ time. We waited for about 2 months and that’s when things got furious as there were no signs of any improvements. My wife quickly began researching about ear deformities in new born and learnt that our little one had Stahl’s Bar. We immediately rushed her to a paediatric surgeon this time, the doctor acknowledged the deformity and stated that the correction should have been done in the first few days when baby was born by splinting method. He also said Stahl’s is very hard to correct and in many times surgery is the only option.

    "After going through the online reviews, the product looked promising and we thought we'd give it a try."

    We left the office very disappointed in the lack of options available. We did a little more research and came across this product called "EarBuddies". After going through the online reviews, the product looked promising and we thought we'd give it a try. We immediately placed an order online and the product arrived within a week in India. We splinted the EarBuddies piece in the ear and taped it following the instructions online. It was in her third month when we began using this product and within about 4 weeks, the results were astonishing.

    "Harry was 5 weeks old when I noticed his right ear was bigger than the left, it did not have a crease in the back of the ear and stuck out further. Whilst I knew I would not be able to make them symmetrical, I hoped to improve the ear. The ear is still larger, but now has a crease behind the ear and no longer sticks out as much. The ears look more a like. I am happy with the result. He was 12 weeks when I decided he no longer required EarBuddies. We found the product easy to use, Harry didn't realise it was there, I was worried about skin integrity however the barrier cream worked and Harry had no soreness. I used coconut oil as well as the wipes provided to remove the tapes."

    "What an amazing product! This is Louis, (left photo) 4 months old when we started with the splints and (right photo) 7 months old when we finished using the splints! What can I say, the splints have really helped and made such a difference. I highly recommend this product to anyone whose baby suffers with stick-out ears.

    When Louis was born his ears seemed fine but by 3 - 4 months we started to notice how soft the top part of the ear was and it started to lose shape, flop forward and fold in half when Louis laid on either side of his head. My husband came across your product and we thought we would give it a go. (As I had the same issue when I was little and had to go through 3 operations to correct my ears and I don't want Louis to go though the same.)

    As you can see from the photos the splints have really helped hugely by reshaping the gully and moving the top part of the ear back. Now when Louis lays on either side of his head the ear does not fold in half. We are so pleased and so glad a product has been designed to help to save the little people from having to go through a painful, expensive operation. It's a small cost compared to surgery prices, but well worth the investment!"

    “I would like to share with you my experience after having used the EarBuddies splints. I have applied the splints to my daughter from the age of 8 weeks old for 10 1/2 weeks. I kept the splints on for 24 hours / day and changed the tapes 1 time / week after the weekly bath. I send you attached some pictures of the results. I think the overall correction was about 40-50% and I am quite satisfied with it.”

    "She is now 2,5 years old and her ears still look good! I am very happy to have come across your solution! It was a problem that was really bothering me and i thought surgery was the only solution. Just very satisfied with the result."

    "I have attached photographs of my daughter before, during and towards the end of her EarBuddies treatment. Her ears were not prominent until about 3 months.
    She was breast fed up to 15 months. I mention this as I understand breast feeding helps keep the cartilage soft, and aids splinting success. She will have her EarBuddies on for one more week before her treatment is complete (treatment duration 4 months plus one week to account for time ears were left to air during tape changes). My daughter wore head bands to cover the splints and no one ever noticed them, but she has many compliments on her head bands. I changed the tapes more regularly than suggested at times, as the tapes got wet on several occasion when she was in the pool (despite having a shower cap on). Otherwise I followed the instructions and advice provided. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information or photographs. Kind regards"

    "Just worked out the difference between EarBuddies ($78) and ["--- ----"] who our obgyn told us to try - 5 whole day trips, 2000 miles, $2000 and counting .. EarBuddies saves surgery and doctor's bills - don't expect your local otolaryng/plastic surgeon to recommend it."


    Facebook Comment - December 2014



    "I just wanted to tell you - my son is now 10.5 years old and we fitted your ear buddy to him when he was just a week or two old. My husband is an Optometrist and he felt confident enough we could follow your instructions on our own. We did and it worked great! I still look at his now perfect ear with amazement from time to time (like at Halloween this year he wore "Link" ears from Legend of Zelda and I had to glue them on for him!) He had no upper ear lobe (it was flat) and folded over. I work with kids families and families running activity classes for babies and toddlers and I have pointed many mums toward you when they have a new baby and are concerned about the baby's ears because they are folded or sticking out. Thank you for your great invention and our son's perfect ears!"


    Mrs April W



    "Noah was born with prominent ears from birth and gradually got worse as the weeks went by. I even had family members telling me he has sticky out ears but that was his characteristics, as a mums point of view he was perfect to me in every way but I thought of Noah as he got older and reached school age how cruel kids can be and the last thing I would want is for him to get picked on for them. I went to the doctors and they suggested surgery but not untill he's at least 5. I came away in two minds: whether I should put him through that when he's old enough. That's when I came across EarBuddies and oh my I'm glad I did ! At 15 weeks old Noah started wearing his EarBuddies now at 20 weeks old they have made a dramatic change already this is not even the final result as I will keep them on him for around another 4 weeks just to be sure but I welled up as soon as I saw the results so far I cannot be any happier ! Thank you so very much :) I will be printing these pictures off to show Noah when he's old enough and I'm sure he will thank me :) Thank you again I really couldn't be any happier :)"

    Paige & her Son Noah

    "It is a personal choice for parents & they should not be criticised for using EarBuddies. My daughter is 4mths old & is in the middle of her ear buddy treatment. It wasn't a decision my husband & I took lightly but we felt it was better to try at this early age to rectify the problem. Her ears were not too bad when she was born but by the time she was 2mths they were bat like & took away we felt from her natural beauty. I was worried what my HV might say when she saw them fitted to her ears but her reaction was very positive. She spent some time working on a ward dealing with children who had undergone surgery for pinning their ears back, she explained how in some cases it was so painful for the children but they were desperate to have the operation done. I can't believe the difference in my daughter's ears in just over a month & a half. I'm not striving for perfection but just want to give her the best start in life!"


    Mrs. R.M

    "The decision to use EarBuddies on my daughter's prominent ears was difficult for me - I saw them as beautiful and as a characteristic that made her her. However, after overhearing an entire family while having lunch make fun of her ears rather than comment on her stunning blue eyes, jet black hair and contagious smile, I realised that If parents, in front of their children, openly bully a three month old baby, my daughter could face some difficult times in the future. Also, having watched my sister go through the painful procedure of pinning back her ears, I didn't want my baby to go through the same. I've been using EarBuddies for the past two weeks and I've already seen a change. On top of that it is painless and she has no idea that they are even there! If I have the possibility to 'correct' ears in a quick and painless procedure and help my daughter avoid the same teasing that I saw my sister go through, why wouldn't I do that? Why should I be criticised? I most definitely have my daughter's best interests in mind."


    Mrs. T.G

    "I can't thank you enough for having the passion to create such a wonderful product and make it available to the lay person. I asked about taping our daughter's ears in the delivery room. But our pediatricians kept telling my husband and I her ear would uncurl on its own. At six weeks old I was not convinced. That's when I did my own research and found your site. We started treating her at 6.5 weeks of age and completed treatment after 7.5 weeks. We're so pleased with the results and know she will be too!"

    "First off, I just want to say thank you for designing a splint to help our babies. My son, 9 months, was born with what the doctor called a "funny" ear. I was told that the only way to fix this "funny" ear was to wait until he was old enough to undergo surgery. Obviously not happy with their answers, I began to do some research of my own. I discovered that what my baby has is called Unilateral Cryptotia, which our doctors were unable to diagnose!! My research eventually led me to you, Amen!!

    We began splinting on May 28, 2010.  My son was almost ten months old and had cryptotia in his right ear.  The first photos were taken before splinting on May 27, 2010.
    The rest of the photos were taken not long after Sept. 28, 2010.  A total of four months of wearing the splint. Thank you so very much for designing this amazing little miracle!  My family and I are so thankful!"

    "My son got sent to 2 different doctors that told us his ears will fix themselves, he'll grow out of it, later found out they had never heard of EarBuddies :( & we went along to my sons follow up appointment when he was about 9 months old & another new doctor recommended EarBuddies to us but by this time my son didnt get the full advantage to them, dont get me wrong they helped alot from what they were but unfortunately my son will need private surgery (because its cosmetic) now if we were to get them fixed all because alot of NHS staff haven't heard of EarBuddies. I personally told my doctors, midwife & health visitors so this can be prevented if another family were to go through this :)"
    Mrs S.M

    "I am writing from Madrid, Spain, to let you know that I've been using EarBuddies on my daughter for 3 months now and the results have been great. A few months ago, I noticed my three month-old's ears sticking out a bit. They folded easily while she slept or when we fed her. I consulted two paediatricians who told me that she could 1. have surgery later on if they got really bad, or 2. cover her ears with hair. I decided that there just had to be a better option, so I did a search on the Internet and found your website. I figured I only had the money and a few weeks to lose, so I went for it! I'm so happy that I did... even after some who saw my baby with the splints insisted that I was wasting my time. Sadly, most of them were people who had done nothing about their own children's ears. Thank you so much!"

    "Update: I am also happy to report that:
    1. At our most recent appointment, our paediatrician could not stop praising the results. I've sent her your website information; my hope is that she will recommend it to other parents. I wish I could send out brochures to people. It's such a shame that parents get zero information about this when it's got such a simple solution!
    2. One of the mothers in my baby gym class was quite impressed by the results and has decided to try it on her baby. The baby is around 10 months old, so I told her that she'd have to be very persistent at this stage. I'm passing on my EarBuddies to her this Friday.
    Update: My daughter is almost 6 now - her ears remain perfect!"
    Mrs P.H

    "You have splinted my daughters ears last February at Bishops Wood Hospital. We came from Switzerland to see you. When we came back to Brazil, our paediatrician was not very happy with the procedure, but I never gave up! I kept her ears splinted for 4 months (1 before our appointment and 3 after. From 3 months old until 7 months old). I am pleased to tell you that though the ears are not 100%, there was a very good improvement. At our last appointment with Brazilian pediatrician, doctor asked me your name and website, since he wanted to recommend EarBuddies to other babies."
    Mrs O.P

    “Natalie had EarBuddies fitted by Dr Gault at 9.5 months - i.e. quite late. We were advised to keep going with them for 4 months as she was already so old when they were fitted. We had to take a break after 7 weeks as she developed a skin infection behind the ears. However, the EarBuddies had already made a remarkable difference to her appearance, which is why I am writing in. We thought about giving up as she no longer looks 'silly', but have resumed the EarBuddies after a 2 week break as an insurance policy, and we will keep it up for another 2 months. I just wanted you to know that good results can be obtained at such a comparatively late age, and for a substantially shorter time than recommended.”
    Mrs Suzy B


    “the EarBuddies have only been on for a month and my son's ear has been completely transformed - absolutely delighted. I cannot recommend them enough - a few of my mummy friends are now ordering them after seeing the fantastic results…”
    Mrs A P - Lymington, UK
    “I just thought I'd write to say how brilliant the EarBuddies are! I was quite nervous initially that I'd make the problem worse and wouldn't be able to do it properly... but I persevered and Luca's ears are now much better. Thanks again!”
    Nick and Sal

    “My son's ear improves so much..and it only been 2 weeks that he has Ear Buddie on. First, I have a little hope because he is 5 months old but I can see that his ear looks better. I still keep it on anyway. I am so glad I found your website otherwise my son's ear will look different. thank you!”
    Mrs Benjaphorn Kanmepol - New York, USA
    "My daughter has had EarBuddies on for 11 weeks now. She was 5 and a half months when I started using them, and I noticed a big improvement at the 6 week mark. Since then, her ears have stayed the same and they look fantastic, much improved."
    Mrs K.S

    “I just wanted to send a couple of before and after photos of Eve after the feedback emails exchanged. We have decided that Eve's ears are as good as they will ever be. We are very pleased with the improvement and although not perfect, a great deal better I'm sure you will agree. As I have said before we didn't expect them to work 100% as she was 9 months at start. Many, many thanks”
    Sandra & Guy
    "My little girl had EarBuddies fitted at the age of 5 months. I wish I had known about them when she was born. When I went to my GP to discuss it with them and ask for advice, it was me actually telling them all about EarBuddies! My baby had them on for 2 months (it becomes more difficult to keep them on as the baby is older). The results are amazing and I would recommend EarBuddies to all!"
    Mrs. M.P

    Mr B.B. -  Ilford, Essex, UK

    “I don't know about global cost differentiation, but I researched the cost of surgery in New Zealand and it's in the ballpark of $4500 (under local) $8500 (child under general) whereas I just got the earbuddies kit for $125 NZD including postage, and my daughter will never remember the experience of wearing them.”
    Leah M.H.

    “Following 3.5 months of treatment, we removed our daughter's ear splints in December. We are satisfied with the results as her ears are much less prominent than they used to be. She has actually been a good advertising for your services since we have recommended you to 3 people who have taken their babies to you!”
     Mrs G - London, UK

    “I had my ears pinned when I was 10 but it went wrong and I got sent over to David Gault in London. They were so bad, needed cartilage from my chest - didn't want this for our new son. His ears didn't stick out but they did fold double when the wife fed. Doc said no worry but one day we both looked and sure enough his ears were jugged - we'd bought EarBuddies just in case, so they went on in a flash and now the little fella is fine, but a close call.”
    Damon - Dublin, Rep. of Ireland

    "When our daughter was born, her left ear was folded forward. It flopped forward for weeks but we were told this would correct itself. In the first few weeks after birth, it became clear that she also had prominent ears. We followed public health recommendations and slept her on her back, which caused her prominent ears to fold forward when she turned her head. This folding started to change the shape of her ears, so that not only where they very prominent, but they were losing their folds (as seen in the first photo below). When she was 3 months old, we ordered the EarBuddies kit for older babies. It was tricky to fit the Buddies at first, but we got better at it and they certainly did not bother her. There were a few days when we had to take them off to allow areas of sensitive skin to settle down. After 3 months of application, we determined that her ears were improved, but still folded forward most of the time when lying down. We persisted for another two months. After 5 months of EarBuddies application, the shape of her ears was greatly improved. While still slightly prominent in technical terms, they fold back instead of forward most of the time now, and we use a hat in the crib, car seat, and stroller to prevent any possibility of folding forward. One month after removing the Buddies, our daughter's ears have held their new and improved shape nicely (as seen in the second photo below)."

    Mrs C.S. & her Daughter - Canada

    "Just a quick email to thank you very much for your help and advice. My sons ear has definitely formed a much better shape with 9 weeks of splintage. I have had the splint off for quite a while now and his ears look good."
    Mrs S.D.

    "I just wanted to write as I am sure many people do, in order to thank you for the EarBuddies kit that has made such a big difference to our daughter Cerys. From the moment she was born I noticed that her ear on one side stuck out but unfortunately with all the new and daunting things to think about anyway upon becoming a parent for the first time we gave it no more than a glancing thought until Cerys was around 6 weeks old, when we noticed that rather than just sticking out, the 'fold' in the ear was completely missing on that side. We were both surprised at how we could have failed to notice something so unusual and also how no medical professional had spotted it either. It prompted us to undertake a little research on the subject whereupon I of course stumbled upon your website and was able to diagnose the condition as 'bat ear' as it is commonly known. After some apprehension we decided to order the kit and give it a go as we had nothing to lose but the financial outlay.
    When the kit arrived we did consult with our GP because at the end of the day we were still a little wary of the idea of purchasing a kit off the internet in order to treat a medical condition that only we had spotted and self diagnosed without any kind of medical referral. The GP knew of the condition but not of the splinting treatment and whilst curious I think he was also a little bemused at the idea, as were the health visitors who would subsequently ask why her ear was taped up and to which my wife was required to almost defend her position constantly and the decision made to go ahead with the treatment without traditional direct medical referral. In total the splint was on for around 11 weeks and throughout that time we experienced many problems, mainly just due to the skin surfaces becoming reddened and inflamed as the instructions reassured us may happen, but nevertheless meant that on a few occasions we were forced to remove the splint and tape for 24/48 hour periods before reapplying in order to let the inflammation subside. By the end of the treatment I certainly became very proficient in applying the splint and tape which we found easiest to apply an hour or two after our daughter had gone to sleep. My wife would take her from the cot and sit with her in the darkened nursery whilst I carefully curled the splint into the ear and applied the tape one step at a time.
    Looking back we are both so pleased that we took the time and the effort for Cerys' sake and the change that it has made to the appearance of her ear has been remarked upon not just by friends and family but also some of those same health professionals who had been openly sceptical in the beginning! In addition there is also a sense of pride and achievement for myself and my wife in taking on something that initially seemed so daunting to the parents of a 2 month old baby. Her ear was certainly not a life threatening condition and so at the time it would have been all too easy to simply ignore. Instead, we forced ourselves to look to the future and imagine how we would feel if Cerys approached us in years to come and ask why we did not at least try something so simple if it stood a chance of avoiding operative treatment and/or the potential bullying and self image issues that she may have had to face in later life.
    We learnt the techniques in applying the splint and I feel that we made good decisions about when to keep the splint in place and when to remove it to allow inflammation to subside. We generally persevered whilst those around us watched on more than a little bemused but ultimately it has made it possible for us as parents to treat a medical condition ourselves which is fantastic! Cerys is around 8 months old now although was about 6 months when I started writing this E-mail it has taken me so long! I would like to take the opportunity to thank you once again for developing this product that I am sure must have changed things for scores of babies and parents, just as it has us. I certainly hope that this does encourage people to persevere even when the treatment does not quite go to plan! Very best wishes"

    "Good Evening
    Firstly I must thank you so much for the remarkable correction of our twins' ears. The whole process has been impressive and am so thrilled that now our twins have perfected ears.
    Our story is as follows: our twins were born at 32 weeks and were in the Special care unit in Northampton for 3 weeks and were such little fighters. When they were born there wasn't any visible imperfections to their ears. It wasn't until they were getting older and starting to gain weight that we started noticing that O***** had one ear (his right ear) that was noticeably larger and a slightly different shape to his other ear. At the time we didn't think nothing of it as we didn't think it was a problem and was certainly not going to cause him a problem. As for B****** it was her left ear. Her ear was just not a "normal" shape slightly spock but just very different to her right ear. As time went on it was starting to bother me more than it was bothering the twins but I felt people were looking at their slightly abnormal ears especially O*****. But if it wasn't causing the twins any discomfort or problems then it was not the right thing for me to do anything about it. I was just prepared to see how they developed over time.
    A few weeks went on and I started noticing that both the twins ears were not the 'normal' shape and were starting to become aggravated especially when they were sleeping and breast feeding. So I made an appointment to see our Health Visitor to discuss my concerns about the twins ears. I also had another concern being 'flat head syndrome' which I was unsure as to whether it could be related to their abnormal ears. So I was looking for some answers and help.
    My Health Visitor was very supportive and explained to me that 'flat head syndrome' was very common and where their heads were slightly flat was the side where they were laying in their Moses baskets and was folding their ears over so they were doubled up every time they had a sleep. I noticed this every time I was to breast feed them as well. I had to make a conscious effort to always fold their ears back to their head to make sure they weren't getting squashed.
    My Health Visitor was unsure as to where to guide me with the queries to their ears so advised me to go to the doctor and see what advice they could give me. She had mentioned that a surgical procedure could take place to rectify their ears. I went away and thought about what she had said and was really not keen on the twins under going surgery at a such a young age. But the thought of their ears doubling over must be so uncomfortable for them when they are sleeping and being breast fed.
    So I went to see our lady doctor at our Doctors Surgery. From this day myself and my partner have never looked back. By this time, the twins ears seemed to have become more obvious and that it was just the one ear on each twin. Our Doctor was very supportive and explained why the twins' ears may have developed like this. All of a sudden it all started to make sense. She had said that being so premature as they were growing and still developing their ears were always being positioned in this way when their heads were pressed against me whilst breast feeding and on the womb their heads would have been pressing against each other so the flat head syndrome stemmed from this then obviously when they were sleeping in their Moses baskets their heads automatically turned to the flat side putting more pressure on their ears that were incorrectly developed.
    The Doctor mentioned to me about 'EarBuddies' and that she had recommended them to another mum at the surgery and she said they were successful but every case is different. This idea sounded very appealing as no surgical procedure would have to take place. I went away and discussed this procedure of using 'EarBuddies' with my partner and looked at your website to gather information together and to see if I really thought that this was the best thing to do for the twins. We came to a decision to go ahead with 'EarBuddies' for the length of time suggested and see what happens. So I ordered 'EarBuddies' and we started the procedure on February 1st this year. I have to admit I was not sure how the 'EarBuddies' were going to be successful and correct the twins ears but stayed positive and followed the procedure right up until the 4 months were up (as that was their age when we started). All I can say is that you only have to look at the pictures attached to see what a difference they have made.
    Both O***** and B****** now have matching ears and in perfect shape. Myself and my partner are thrilled with the results. We never expected such a huge difference. I am so glad that I went to our Doctor when we did or we would never have known about 'EarBuddies'. For the time that they were wearing the 'EarBuddies' I used to feel that people were looking and staring at them as to why they had plasters over their ears but they really were not very noticeable at all. They both now sleep and breast feed without their ears folding over and doesn't seem to bother them at all as they sit correctly in the correct place on the side of their head. I have attached some photos of before and after just so that you can really see what improvement has been achieved.
    So finally Thank You so very much for the creation of 'EarBuddies' I would also like to thank a lady that I spoke to on the telephone regarding EarBuddies, she was extremely helpful and explained so many things to me and as a mother I needed reassurance about 'EarBuddies'. Unfortunately I don't have her name but on both occasions that I phoned it was the same lady so thank you for a wonderful service.
    Yours Sincerely"
    Mrs P.M. - Northampton, UK

    "I am pleased to say that this young man has done really well since I saw him shortly after birth. The collapsed left pinna has returned to normal courtesy of David Gault's ear splints. Mum has no concerns about ****'s hearing and his feeding is settling well.
    Yours sincerely”

    Dr. D.A. - 23rd June 1999

    "I am writing to let you know how successful your EarBuddies splints have been with my young son. When H****d was born, I noticed his ear was rather crumpled, but put it down to a difficult delivery. Weeks went by and the ear remained the same and although nobody else, i.e. doctor, midwife or health visitor, mentioned it, I thought the ear not quite right.
    I remembered an article I had read in a magazine called 'You and Your Baby', and I took it to show my doctor at my six week check. He referred my son to a plastic surgeon, but said it wouldn't hurt to try the EarBuddies. I sent off for the pack and started fixing them onto my son's ear when he was seven weeks old.
    I went to see the plastic surgeon when my son was 10 weeks old and the EarBuddies already seemed to be working. He asked me to come back in two more months so I did. My son was then four and a half months old and his ear was perfect.

    My son is now eighteen months old and his ear has stayed in its new shape. I am very grateful for your help and have informed my doctor and health visitors about EarBuddies so that others can make use of them.
    Yours sincerely”

    "Dear Mr Gault, With reference to our consultation with you on 18th August, I enclose a photograph of my son's left ear after wearing the splint for four weeks. As you can see the splint has been a great success."
