The mother-of-one – who shares Beau with her partner Danny Flasher – shared several sweet snaps with her little one in his head gear as she discussed his journey.
She penned: ‘I wanted to do a little post to share Beau’s journey with you all & raise awareness for other babies.
‘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.’ (sic)

Babies sometimes develop a flattened head when they’re a few months old, usually as a result of them spending a lot of time lying on their back.
These problems are quite common, affecting around 1 in every 5 babies at some point.
There are specially designed helmets and headbands that some people claim can help improve the shape of a baby’s skull as they grow.
WHAT IS FLAT HEAD SYNDROME?
Babies sometimes develop a flattened head when they’re a few months old, usually from sleeping on their back.
Sometimes the head can be flattened on one side (known as plagiocephaly) or the back of the head becomes flattened, causing the head to widen and the skull to bulge out (known as bracycephaly).
The head can be flattened in the womb, and the condition is more common in babies born prematurely because they’re squeezed through the birth canal when their skulls haven’t fully developed.
But the most common cause is because babies now sleep on their backs every night – a position doctors advise to prevent cot death.
When they lie on their backs, the full weight of their heads rests on the back of their skulls and the pressure of the mattress on their soft skull causes it to become flat.
The conditions is not thought to be medically dangerous.
Doctors advise changing the baby’s position in the day to relieve pressure on the back of its head, and it will often correct itself over time.
However, they warn parents not to change their baby’s sleeping position from lying on their back at night.
It’s very important for babies to sleep on their back, because it reduces the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
