Headwear that you’re happy with is more important than you might think. Since the introduction of EarBuddies headwear, we have found that parents persevere with splintage for longer, with some fantastic results.

  • Why Extra Headwear?

    The splintage period can be a sensitive time, and whilst we hope that it will soon become as accepted as braces on teeth, a range of cover-ups can help you to stay the course.­­

    EarBuddies Basic Kits and Premium Packs contain one item of headwear as standard, but if your baby is older than 1 month, and so the splintage period is longer, it might be helpful to have a wider choice of headwear on hand. Extra headwear might also be useful if you live in a variable climate, where a single item of headwear may not suit all weather, or all outfits!

    Does my baby need to wear the headwear all the time?

    EarBuddies headwear was designed as a cover-up to help you avoid the questions that splinting can attract. It can also support the correction and keep baby's inquisitive fingers away from the ears, but if you don't want your baby to wear a hat, then that's fine.

    Can I use the headwear without the EarBuddies splints?

    No. EarBuddies headwear is intended as a cover-up only, and whilst a good fit can support the correction, using the headwear alone is not effective in correcting an ear deformity; you must use the EarBuddies splints.

  • What is my baby’s head size?

    Use a tape measure, or some string and a ruler, to measure around your baby’s head – it is best to measure along the hairline as this is where the headwear sits. Alternatively, use the chart below to estimate your baby’s head size based on age and gender.
