Mom of two Chrissy Teigen is celebrating a big moment with her adorable 9-month-old son, Miles.

The baby boy, who she shares with husband John Legend, started wearing a corrective helmet last December to help shape his “adorable slightly misshapen head,” she said.

Teigen wrote:

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.

After she shared the photo, the 33-year-old was flooded with support from other parents whose kids also wear corrective helmets, Dearly reported.

They shared photos of their own little ones sporting their gear.

But now, baby Miles has “graduated” from wearing his corrective helmet, the star revealed.

Teigen shared a sweet video to Twitter on Wednesday to share the news. In the clip, she tells her son, “Happy helmet-free day!”

She wrote in the tweet:

Such a trooper for 3 months of helmet. happy graduation, Miles!!

Most children who wear corrective helmets have positional plagiocephaly, a condition that causes an infant’s head to develop abnormally flattened, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS).

The helmets serve as a form of physical therapy that helps shape the child’s head. The helmet is usually adjusted every one to two weeks as the child grows.

Teigen said it was the same case with Miles. She responded to a fan:

yeah, they get shaved and shaped down every week, depending on how much the child’s head is morphing. it’s amazing!

Thankfully, it seems the helmet worked perfectly for Teigen’s baby boy.

There’s no word yet if Miles may have to wear another helmet sometime in the future.

  1. When babies are born they favor one side to turn their head or they are left too long on their backs and develop a flattened area on back of head. My sister in law left her baby son turned to one side constantly that today he has a misshapen head at age 25. We no longer place babies on their stomachs to sleep, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be placed on their tummy when you are with them to prevent the back of head from becoming too flat.
