Anytime a product comes around that says they will help with anything that has to do with my children, (or babies), I am going to read up, research, ask around, and grab whatever it may be. Especially when it is for something that will help make sure they are protected against a health concern, learning disability, developmental disability, etc.
Of course I figure most of us are like this, and at times it does seem we are constantly bombarded with information, TV ads, pamphlets, and even though you might have 2 or 4 or even 6 kids, everytime you're pregnant, there is a weeks worth of new info to read up on!
I have 4 little ones, and I swear, for each pregnancy, I had to find out the newest info on everything from whether I can eat shrimp or not, to, is Folic Acid something I should try. It drove me nuts how everything would change, no matter how close your babies are.
I received this product for babies to help with Flat Head Syndrome, this is something that can affect all babies. Of course, repositioning your baby will help with preventing, but even still, about 48% of all babies will have some form of flat head syndrome.
The best ages to help to prevent this are from birth to 6 months.
You can watch this video to learn more about flat head syndrome...
Dr Jane Scott, a pediatrician and a mother of 4, created these adorable little beanies to help your baby prevent this syndrome, so along with being super cute, you are also helping to promote natural movement of your babies head and neck, without the risk of SIDS. (pillows and wedges tend to have this risk)
All of my babies are age 2 and up, but I have a little princess granddaughter, Lillian;) She loves to wear pretty things and loves hats and headbands so Lillian has been using The Tortle!
They don't just have the cute pink one that Lillian received either! You can choose from classic white, or whimsical elephants too! You can also grab some pretty crocheted headbands to use with The Tortle!
Tortles also come in 3 different sizes, small, medium and large.
S 0-2 months / 5-10 lbs (13-15" head circumference)
M 2-4 months / 10-15 lbs (15-16" head circumference)
L 4-6 months / 15-20 lbs (16.5-18" head circumference)
and they are made from 95% cotton and 5% spandex, which makes them not only comfy for your little one, but also machine washable and you can dry them.
I think the name Tortle is a cute choice, and it's neat how Dr Jane Scott came up with the name!
Torticollis is the condition that comes along with flat head syndrome, which is a severe neck muscle tightening syndrome. The turtle shell's purpose is to shape and protect the body of the turtle! Just like the Tortle helps to shape and form your little ones heads!
Oh, and yes, The Tortle is FDA approved;)
