Not sure if I'm posting in the right place, but my 12 month old's ears were standing perfectly up until a few weeks ago. Now they stay flopped over all the time. Will posting help them to stand again or is it useless? Thanks in advance.

You could try posting again. Is the base strong and just the tips flop? Is it a longer crop? Has s/he been sick and on any meds recently?

How long were they standing perfectly? Meaning, how long have they been standing without posts....and how long have they been flopping now?

He has a medium crop. I had to post for about 8-9 months & they stood for about 2 months. He is really floppy/flimsy from where the ears are bending up to the tips. He hasn't been sick or on any meds, but he has been under some stress (I have to leave him with my in-laws for 3-4 days a week when I go out of town) I don't know if that would make a difference or not?
He absolutely hated having his ears posted. I just read about the Ear Halo, has anyone had any experience with that? I was wondering if it would be beneficial?

I can try to post pictures of him if that would help.

Sorry, they have been flopped back over for about 6-8 weeks :(

The base is strong up to mid ear where they start flopping.

I posted them back up yesterday. He was not happy about it at all...he shook his head a few times then seemed to get used to them. I let him out to potty this morning & he was able to get one of the posts out, so i put it right back up. I truly believe his ears want to stand up, they just need some encouraging :)
