"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!"
There are a few points I would share with any parent thinking of using EarBuddies:
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."
"Estimado equipo de Earbuddies,
Quería comunicaros lo contentos que estamos después de que mi bebé haya dado por concluido los tres meses de tratamiento. Mi hijo tenía orejas de soplillo y me preocupaba mucho que se burlasen de él en el colegio o que creciese con complejos. Antes de probar Earbuddies probamos con otro tratamiento similar pero más caro sin que diese resultados, por eso pensé que quizá Earbuddies tampoco funcionaría. ¡Pero no podemos estar más contentos de haberlo probado!
"Fue mucho más fácil y cómodo de lo que pensábamos..."
Poner los esparadrapos fue mucho más fácil y cómodo de lo que pensábamos, incluso durante la época de primavera y verano en una zona tan cálida como el sureste de España y en una piel delicada como en el caso de mi hijo. Además, tras 15 días ya pudimos apreciar una gran mejoría. Aquí os dejo fotos del antes y el después para que podáis ver lo bien que le fue.
Hace ya 4 días que acabó el tratamiento y esperamos que sus orejitas se queden así para siempre. Muchas gracias por poner al alcance de todos un tratamiento tan sencillo y al mismo tan tiempo eficaz."
"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!

"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!

"Thank you for educating me, thank you for giving me hope & thank you for letting me believe I can do this before I even got the product. My daughter was two months old when my kit arrived. 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.
Emilia's ears folding over.
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.

We continued re-applying them every 2 weeks when we eventually had no further need to continue with them after 2.5 months as the ear cartilage has started to harden! We are absolutely thrilled with the results and we can't thank you enough!!! I will be forever grateful, from 1 very happy 1st time mummy :)"

"This is Olivia who is now 6 months old ! She is a twin who was born 10 weeks premature. Due to being in an incubator for a long period of time and her ear cartilage being very soft her ear became deformed over time. This is 6 weeks results. After being told she would need surgery to correct it we are thrilled with the results."
"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."

"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."

"Mi bebé nació con orejas perfectas y planas. Aproximadamente a los 2 meses de vida se empezaron a doblar mientras dormía. Noté que esto hacía que sus orejas comenzaran a sobresalir. Me sentía enferma solo de pensar en ella siendo el blanco de burlas en la escuela por lo que busqué en internet alguna solución y en el camino encontré ear buddies. Soy de Australia y no pude encontrar nada parecido localmente. Tenía dudas ya que era una compra internacional pero el proceso de la compra y el envío fue rápido y sencillo.
Coloqué las tablillas EarBuddies en las orejas de mi hija cuando tenía tres meses de edad. Las ha tenido puestas desde hace 3 semanas y los resultados están bastante cerca de ser asombrosos. Me alegro de haberlo hecho y pretendo dejarlas puestas por 3 meses, para que de este modo, se queden así de perfectas. Ella ni siquiera se da cuenta de que las lleva puestas y ponerlas y quitarlas es mucho más fácil de lo que pensé que sería. Gracias EarBuddies!"

"Las orejas de nuestro hijo eran muy asimétricas y la oreja izquierda se volvió más y más prominente con el tiempo. Cuando tenía 8 meses y medio de vida empezamos en el entablillamiento. Ahora tiene 12 meses y medio y estamos muy felices con el resultado. Hemos quitado las tablillas durante una semana y estamos muy satisfechos con el hecho de que se han quedado en su lugar, sin embargo, con frecuencia se doblan así que planificamos continuar con el entablillamiento hasta que el cartílago endurezca más. Ha tolerado las cintas adhesivas increíblemente bien y ahora es una parte más de la rutina.
Durante el entablillamiento
También quería agregar que nuestro hijo tiene la piel extremadamente sensible y no hemos tenido ningún problema con el sistema Ear Buddies. Aplicamos una cantidad pequeña de Medihoney con un isopo donde la oreja se encuentra con la cabeza y hemos notado un poco de irritación en la piel cuando nos olvidamos de hacerlo. También usamos el espray de barrera Cavilon y el removedor de adhesivo Niltac. Investigué mucho sobre las deformidades de las orejas y su tratamiento, sin embargo, su página no me salió como un resultado en la búsqueda de internet hasta que escribí literalmente "cinta adhesiva para orejas de soplillo".
Quería agradecerles a ustedes, EarBuddies, por ayudarnos a prevenir una futura cirugía cosmética y darle orejas simétricas a nuestro pequeño hijo durante su niñez temprana. Solo desearía haber encontrado esto antes. Espero que esto ayude a más familias a utilizar este producto que cambiará sus vidas."
"¡Hola! Mi hermosa bebé, Emilia, nació con una oreja prominente. Ya que fui víctima de burlas por la forma en la que me veía cuando era una adolescente no quería que Emilia pasara por la misma experiencia debido a su "oreja de duende" pero tampoco quería hacerla pasar por un proceso quirúrgico así que busqué una solución alternativa y encontré el sistema EarBuddies. Ha tenido puesta las tablillas desde hace dos meses y, ¡sus orejas se ven asombrosamente bien!
La gente se reían de mi como si fuera una ridícula cuando decidí hacerlo, pero me alegro de haberlo hecho, ahora mi hermosa bebé tiene dos pequeñas y perfectas orejas. ¡Gracias!
"Mi hija Charlie nació con las orejas perfectas pero mientras los meses iban pasando sus orejas comenzaron a sobresalir más y más. Mi hijo mayor también tiene orejas de soplillo y comencé a preocuparme con la idea de que Charlie también tendría este problema. Fue mientras buscaba información sobre posibles soluciones para Harry cuando me encontré con EarBuddies.
Inmediatamente las compre pero estaba escéptica ya que ella tenía casi 5 meses de edad. Ahora tiene 9 meses y medio y, ¡no puedo creer la diferencia! Ojalá hubiera sabido de ellas en tiempo para ayudar a Harry. ¡No puedo recomendar las tablillas lo suficiente! Ahora me siento feliz de que Charlie puede crecer sin sentirse insegura por sus orejas. Gracias."
