Chloe Lewis has opened up about her son Beau’s misshapen head after discovering that he was not alone.
The 28-year-old TOWIE star’s 11-month-old baby is now required to wear a helmet for 23-hours of the day in order to correct his skull.
Bravely opening up about her son’s helmet in a candid social media post, the TOWIE bombshell revealed that she had connected with another mum that had faced the same experience.
She was then directed to London Orthotic Consultancy, where she and Beau have received help from specialists.
Sharing an adorable picture of Beau with her 1 million Instagram followers, the mum of one opened up about her son’s struggles with sleep on Sunday.
“I wanted to do a little post to share Beau’s journey with you all & raise awareness for other babies,” she wrote.

“When Beau was born he suffered a dishaped head due to a traumatic birth & then for months after he would sleep on the flatter side as it was more comfortable for him.
“We used the shaping pillow but in Beau’s case it didn’t do much for him.
“I then came across the loveliest girl Ria & her beautiful boy Rudi who had the same thing. So I decided to message her randomly through Instagram.
“I asked her 100 questions & she completely put my mind at ease then advised me to visit the London Orthotic Consultancy.
Chloe continued: “So here we are 3 weeks in… wearing his helmet for 23hrs a day. Let’s just say it hasn’t been easy but we know it’s for the best. We Love you Beau boy.
“(If any one has any questions Ria has kindly offered to answer any questions as will I. Couldn’t have done it without you @ririhalli So thank you”
“Would love to hear your journeys if your going through similar with your own babies #babyhelmetclub,” Chloe concluded.
The reality star also shared several cute snaps where she cuddled her youngster while he wore his white helmet.
Chloe has been very open in the past about experiencing a traumatic birth when she welcomed Beau with her partner Danny Flasher.
Speaking on Instagram about welcoming her baby earlier this year, Chloe revealed that Beau “got stuck.”
She wrote at the time: “It was awful & really traumatised me. I really couldn’t have done it without my mum & Danny by my side & my midwifes Tower & Emmy were amazing!”
The first time mum is now trying to use her platform to raise awareness and help other mums with babies who also may have experienced a misshapen skull.
