We analyse the effect of the canonical quantization of the rotational mode of the O(3) o-model which includes the Skyrme term. Numerical evidence is presented that the quantum correction to the mass of the rotationally-invariant charge n = 1, 2 configurations may stabilize the solution even in the limit of vanishing potential. The corresponding range of values of the parameters is discussed.
