Repositions Baby to Prevent Flat Head Syndrome

What Is Tortle?

Tortle is a simple, comfortable beanie that helps prevent and treat early stages flat head syndrome: plagiocephaly & torticollis. It makes the job of repositioning newborns safe and easy.
It is recommended that all newborns wear a Tortle for the first few months of life to aid in repositioning; which supports healthy development. Tortle works by gently deflecting your baby’s head when she's sitting or lying on the back of her head, to gently move her head from side to side.
The incidence of plagiocephaly and torticollis (or flat head syndrome) has increased by 600% since 1992 due to the amount of time infants spend on their back (the safest place to be). However, if left untreated, treatment is expensive and can be hard on the baby. Moreover, long term developmental delays can occur. But plagiocephaly and torticollis almost 100% preventable with repositioning, which Tortle makes easy.

Why is it called a Tortle?

Dr. Jane named her product the Tortle for a few reasons. First, after the condition Torticollis, a severe neck muscle tightening associated with flat head syndrome.
Secondly, the turtle (or tortoise) shell’s purpose is to shape and protect the body of the turtle, just as the Tortle helps to shape and protect the roundness of an infant’s perfect little head!

How Do I Use It?

• Put the beanie on your baby when she is lying awake (such as on the floor or in a bouncer or swing), sleeping with your supervision, or traveling in a car seat or stroller.
• Align the support roll behind one ear, then at feeding time, switch sides so she doesn’t begin to favor a position. Tortle is not intended for overnight use.
• If your baby has developed some flattening or plagiocephaly, use the Tortle to position the head preferentially to the other side. Once the flattening has improved, then return to alternating it side to side.
• The patented support roll aids in repositioning: it’s firm enough so she won’t roll over, and soft enough to encourage natural, comfortable movement.

Is It Safe?

Tortle is an FDA-cleared Class I medical device to help prevent flat head syndrome. It’s a natural way to encourage healthy head and neck motion, without any of the suffocation risks of repositioning pillows or wedges.
Tortle is made from 95% cotton, 5% spandex. The support roll is made from a non-toxic foam. Tortle can be machine washed and tumbled dry.

What Size Do I Need?

Tortle comes in three sizes. We recommend baby wear Tortle from birth through the first 6 months of life.
S 0-2 months / 5-10 lbs
M 2-4 months / 10-15 lbs
L 4-6 months / 15-20 lbs
The beanie should be big enough to cover your baby’s ears. Once it no longer covers at least the tops of the ears, it’s time to move to the next larger size.

I love the Sweet Pink but I don't know if my niece is having a boy or girl yet. I would love this for her baby shower.

I like the elephant print!
I was just told today by the Doc that my 4 month old has mild plagiocephaly and we should consider going to a specialist. I am looking up as much information as I can on this hat and hope I can avoid the $$$ helmet!
