Tortle Now Available At Target.com and BuyBuy Baby Stores #Sponsored



With newborn babies it's recommended that they sleep on their backs to prevent SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). I slept on my back for as long as I could, well that is until I learned how to roll over. Once I did learn how to, I slept in the way I felt most comfortable although mommy still insisted that I sleep on my back. Luckily for me I turned out ok but that isn't always the case. If you haven't heard, some babies end up with what is called "Flat Head Syndrome". Thankfully that is where Tortle comes in to help. Tortle  is a lightweight knit beanie that helps prevent and treat Flathead Syndrome and they are available in medium and large sizes.

“Every baby is at risk of developing Flat Head Syndrome with one out of two babies being diagnosed with the Syndrome,” said Dr. Jane Scott.  “Through Target.com and BuyBuy Baby Stores we will have an opportunity to further increase awareness of Flat Head Syndrome and the ease in which it can be prevented or treated.”

The incidence of Plagiocephaly and Torticollis (or Flathead syndrome) has increased to epidemic proportions since 1992 with more than a million babies being diagnosed with the condition each year in the U.S. alone.  This is due to their lack of movement and the amount 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.

Dr. Scott, whose specialty is Pediatrics and Neonatology, is recognized as an expert in the areas of Plagiocephaly and Torticollis.  In her nearly 30 years as a practicing physician, Dr. Scott has counseled and educated hundreds of parents to help prevent as well as treat the many problems associated with Flathead Syndrome.  Dr. Jane’s mission is to prevent Flathead Syndrome-an epidemic affecting the babies across the world. 






About Tortle
Founded by Board Certified Pediatrician and Neonatologist Dr. Jane Scott in 2012, Tortle Products, LLC is located in Denver, CO.  Tortle Products manufactures Tortle, an FDA-cleared patented Class 1 medical device.  This stylish knit beanie prevents and treats Flat Head Syndrome (Plagiocephaly and Torticollis), a condition most prevalent in babies 0-6 months of age.  Every baby is at risk for developing Flat Head Syndrome with one out of two babies being diagnosed with the Syndrome.  Tortle works by gently deflecting a baby’s head from side to side while they are lying on their back.   Available in a variety of colors and designs, Tortle has a recommended retail price of $19.99, and are currently available for sale at BuyBuy Baby Stores and Target.com

  1. I've never heard of Flat Head Syndrome before. With my oldest, he was MUCH more comfortable sleeping on his tummy, but I only let him do it when he napped during the day so that I could keep an eye on him. My second son would ONLY sleep on his tummy. He would never have slept had I not put him on his stomach, so I ended up just sleeping in his room for a few months at night until he was past that stage.

  2. I have never heard of Tortle. But I remember having issues with my baby's head and feared that it could get flat since he was sleeping on his back. I wish I had known about Tortle earlier. Regardless, I am going to share this info with some new parents in my circle. Thanks for the info!

  3. My mother used to always swear that if a baby was left to lay on their backs for a long period that the parents were not taking care of them. She felt they were left lay in their crib too long. Thank goodness there is now a Tortle to help with the flat heads.

  4. I remember always turning my daughter when she was sleeping to avoid the flat head. Wish this was around when she was younger

  8. This is a great thing to have for parents with small babies.

  9. Thank you for this information. Flathead syndrome is a big problem. I was very careful with my son so he wouldn't get it turning him around. It's good to know there is this kind of help existing now.

  10. I am lucky because we did not have anything to help with this and both of my boys came out with perfect shaped heads. I love that they are recognizing this and coming up with solutions.

  11. Yep.. Just learned something new! Thank you for this education. I'm not done having children, so I needed this info.

  12. I have ready many studies but in the end, I find if the infant has the final say. Unfortunately there is only so much you can do to keep them happy. Fortunately, my parents moved us all over as children as we liked it.

  13. My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl a few days ago. This should be perfect for her to have, maybe not right now but in a few months time. Have a great week ahead! :)

  14. My older son actually had moderate positional plagiocephaly and we had to reposition aggressively in order to avoid having to get him fitted for a helmet. It resolved itself but it was a tough time. I wish we had this back then.

  15. wish this had been around when my son was little such a neat product

  16. This information just needs to get out there. This is one great avenue to do so but you have to wonder why more proactive education is not done with pregnant parents.

  17. I never heard of flat head syndrome before. Glad you posted information on the topic. :-)

  18. For only $19.99 this product is definitely worth it! I mean, what's $19.99 when it could help prevent your child from experiencing flat head syndrome.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow, this seem to be a good product - I actually never knew there was such a syndrome and this comes in very handy - prevention is always better like what they all say :)

  20. I think this is a very worthy cause. Another issue is some babies stay in their car seats. .. car to store to car to home... and then if baby doesn't transfer well may sleep there too. The hat looks helpful.

  21. When my daughter was an infant it was always something! I can recall worrying about about flat head syndrome and would have loved a hat like this to help ease my mind.

  22. I never heard of flathead before.. how scary!!! Thank you for educating me.. it's such a worrying condition.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thank you for reminding me about this, have to take care Olivia doesn't get this! This would be a great product to try!

  24. In my 4 years as a mother I've never heard of flat head syndrome or Tortle but as a Mama with friends who have recently had babies and who are pregnant this is a great piece to share with them!
