What do you do if your baby is born with a malformed ear? You check the ear the first 7 to 10 days and see if it doesn’t self-correct. Then, if things don’t improve in the first week or two, you contact Ochsner Hospital for Children and ask about a safe, tested, pain-free solution called ear molding. Ear molding has proven to be extremely successful in correcting ear malformations in babies under six weeks old.
