          I think the bridge between the ears should be a little longer. You want the ears to be more like 11:00 - 1:00 instead of 12:00 - 12:00. A slight "V". That keeps the ears upright while allowing some movement of the ear muscles. When they are taped so upright, you risk getting pockets in the ears and they the ears start to lay across the head.

            Would it be okay to leave until next taping? Or should it be re done asap?

              For the first couple of months I tape it just like you did Lauren. The middle tape nice and tight. Little to no movement of the ears.

              After a couple of months, you can start to loosen it up and do it like Sarah mentioned.

              Your job looks better then the job I did on his sister LOL! You go girl!
