“Baby Miles getting fitted for a little helmet today for his adorable, slightly misshapen head,” Teigen said in one of a series of posts on Twitter.

“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.”

“I’ve been told it’s too late for my head,” Teigen joked in another post.

Helmet therapy is used to “gently” correct the shape of babies’ skulls over time, according to Johns Hopkins.

Also known as cranial orthosis, helmet molding therapy is not painful or uncomfortable for the baby.
