A new alarming trend has emerged in China. Parents use corrective helmets to correct the shape of the head in newborns. With the help of these strange devices, they want to achieve the perfect round shape of the child's skull. The unusual method has caused many conflicting opinions. Some believe that they save children from complexes related to appearance, which may arise later, while others see this as a mockery of kids.
A new crazy trend in China causes bewilderment and indignation among users of social networks. Chinese parents put special helmets on babies' heads to correct the shape of the skull. With their help, they try to achieve a round head shape in babies.
Several companies have already started producing strange devices. In addition to helmets, they offer special mattresses, pillows and molds that prevent the flattening of the child's head. By the way, flat heads used to be in fashion in China, so parents sometimes forced kids to sleep on books. Now everything has changed exactly the opposite.
The new feature has become very popular among the Chinese. They rushed to buy special helmets for babies in stores and on the Internet. The device must be worn on the head all day. Special mattresses and pillows are also designed to prevent the skull from becoming flat.
Correction devices created according to individual parameters can cost up to $ 4,300 (about 308,000 rubles). But there are many cheaper options. Manufacturers promise a visible effect after a month and a half of use.
Chinese mothers compare corrective helmets with braces and see nothing wrong with them. Nevertheless, the adaptations cause mixed ratings in social networks. Some users condemn parents for putting kids under stress for a purely cosmetic purpose. Others believe that this method is justified, because in the future children will not have to suffer because of problems with appearance. Doctors say that it is better if the body develops naturally and advise parents not to correct what is inherent in nature.
The fashion for an unusual face shape continues to conquer social networks. A mannequin from Milan made TikTok users laugh with triangular jaws.
