GEORDIE Shore star Marnie Simpson has revealed her baby son Oax has begun treatment for a skull disorder.
She shared a picture of the four-month-old wearing a specially made helmet designed to help his Plagiocephaly – a cosmetic condition where the head is flattened in appearance, usually at the back or to the side.
She said: “But I trust the process and I know it’s going to be a Journey for us as a family, and it’s going to take some serious perseverance from me and casey but the guys @technologyinmotion are so comforting and have made me feel as content as possible about the whole experience!
“I’ll document the whole progress made for everyone to see and I’ll keep everyone up to date how we’re getting on if anyone wants any advice my DM is always open 🤍.”
According to Great Ormond Street Hospital, helmets like Oax’s need to be worn for 23 hours of the day.
The children’s hospital site says it is still uncertain if the helmets are effective, but they would be more likely to work if worn by babies under six months
Other methods it suggests for improving the shape of the head include physiotherapy, tummy time and manipulating sleeping position.
Proud dad Casey commented underneath the pictures of his son: ” love him xxx.”
While pal Sophie Kasaei said: “Oh my little squish ❤️.”
