Tortle BeanieWhat is a Tortle you ask? The Tortle beanie is an FDA-cleared patented Class 1 medical device that promotes proper head and neck movement which is essential for appropriate development.  Tortle helps prevent and treat the early stages of flat head syndrome: plagiocephaly (the flattening of the baby’s skull) & torticollis (unbalanced neck muscles). Tortle works by gently deflecting a baby’s head from side to side when they are sitting or lying on the back of their head.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends regular head repositioning of babies younger than six months.

This is due to their lack of movement and the number of time infants spend on their back (the safest place for them to be).  If left untreated, there can be long-standing problems.  Treatment is frequently expensive and can be somewhat uncomfortable for a baby.  Plagiocephaly and Torticollis are almost 100% preventable with repositioning and Tortle makes this safe and easy.  It is recommended that all newborns wear a Tortle for the first 6 months of life to support healthy development.

    I learned that some babies may be born with Plagiocephaly because of restricted in utero positioning, during the birth process.

    I learned that after 6 months, the head is harder and less likely to have flat head syndrome. I remember with my lil ones being so afraid of this and constantly moving their lil heads around.

    I would choose the Whimsical Blue Elephants Tortle repositioning beanie. It is cute and the back positioning support roll even resembles the look of an elephant trunk.

    I learned that it can be used to make the baby’s head turn the other way from the favourite position to help prevent flat spots on the back of the head. I like the blue whimsical elephant design most.

    I am loving the Tortle in Sweet Pink Flowers. I have tried to prevent Flat Head Syndrome by changing the side my daughter sleeps on each night, and this would be great to use to help further prevent it. Thanks so much!
