We all want to protect our baby’s head as best we can, don’t we?
Did you know that 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 (the flattening of the baby’s skull) and Torticollis (unbalanced neck muscles) are almost 100% preventable with repositioning and wearing the pediatrician-developed Tortle can help.
The Tortle, a lightweight knit beanie, is an FDA-cleared patented Class 1 medical device that promotes proper head and neck movement which is essential for appropriate development. The 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 Tortle can be found at Babies R Us stores and on Target.com.
We are giving away two Tortle beanies to 3-lucky readers (value $44 each).
