Chrissy Teigen says her 6-month-old son needs a corrective helmet—but he's going to be even cuter with it. The model said Monday that young Miles needs the helmet for plagiocephaly, also known as "flat head syndrome," USA Today reports. The baby was "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," she tweeted. In a follow-up tweet, she shared a photo of Miles in his new helmet. She also praised her followers for sharing photos of their own children in corrective helmets, E! Online reports. (After she had Luna, her first child with John Legend, Teigen "shamed mommy shamers.")
