Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had a similar situation. We noticed this weekend that our 3 month old baby has one ear smaller than the other. I will be calling the doctor on Monday to ask questions. I know that he is still growing ,but we're concerned because the difference in ear size has become noticeable.
Any feedback is much appreciated!
Thank you.

What can I do next?

I would look at finding some who does cranial sacral therapy. This is a type of cranial massage that they can do and it may help to encourage growth if things are not asymetrical

Do you notice any other asymmitry (sp)??

That's all i can think that the dr might ask.

Good Luck i hope you get some answers and that it turns out to be nothing.

Hi M. -

I hope you got some good information from your DR. Hopefully, this will correct itself as you son is still so little and as you said, still growing.

I just wanted to share that I noticed that for both of my boys, their eyes are slightly different, a little droopy on one side. I don't think anyone else notices but me. My husband has one droopy eye too, but again, I am probably the only one who notices.
