Baby helmets are often used to treat flat head syndrome as Chrissy Teigen has shared, but really why troll a mamma over her choice?
It’s super common, one 2013 study estimated 46% of babies have a degree of positional plagiocephaly.
Doctor’s will often recommend a baby wear a custom cranial orthotic helmet to correct the flat spot, and Chrissy Teigen’s son Miles is one of those babies, she just announced via Instagram.
“My baby bug got his head shaping helmet today! Please don’t feel bad for him if you see photos,” Chrissy captioned a pic of Miles in his helmet posted Monday. “He is a happy bug and we’re just fixing his flat!”
baby miles getting fitted for a little helmet today for his adorable slightly misshapen head. so if you see pictures, don’t feel bad for him because he’s just fixing his flat and honestly he’s probably gonna be even cuter with it somehow

Teigen as usual has already seen some backlash from internet commenters critical of her decision to get Miles a helmet. She responded:
Good morning trolls! Just a friendly reminder that you do not indeed know absolutely everything. Miles has been seeing a physiotherapist – we didn’t just go straight to helmet. We tried muscle work and will continue. Also your flat headed kid turned out fine yes yes yes I agree — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) December 4, 2018
Why must people insist on judging parents over the littlest things?
