Chrissy Teigen gets mommy-praise after posting photo of Miles in corrective helmet

Chrissy Teigen shared a photo of her son wearing a corrective helmet for his “misshapen head” that sparked troves of sweet responses from other mothers on Twitter.

The cookbook author tweeted Monday her 6-month-old son Miles was being fitted for a corrective helmet to treat his plagiocephaly, also known as flat head syndrome.

“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 wrote on Twitter.

She later shared two photos of the baby with the helmet that sparked similar responses from mothers on Twitter.

“Thank you sharing this!! When I got my baby one there were a lot of questions and judgement. We’re just fixing their lil noggins, but this is the internet,” one mother wrote.

“My baby cousin has one too! She was born at 1 lb 3oz & she finally fits into new born clothes,” another person tweeted.

One woman commented, “SO cute! here’s my lil guy when he had his 3 short months then his head was perfect!”

Dozens of parents tweeted at Teigen saying they could relate and shared photos of their babies with corrective helmets. Many fans said Miles was “still adorable” and the “cutest boy around” with the helmet and thanked the model for being open and honest.

On Tuesday, Teigen hit back at trolls and said her son had been seeing a physiotherapist before the family decided to use a corrective helmet.

“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,” Teigen tweeted. “Just didn’t want you guys to see pictures and wonder. Not promoting anything. Just sharing our story! Thank you back to your bridge now.”

Teigen shares two children, Miles and Luna, with husband John Legend.
