Tortle Blog Review and Giveaway

As parents, we have several concerns when it comes to our children, especially when we are new parents. I had my first child when I was only 20 years old and obviously highly inexperienced. I was told that I needed to be sure to let my baby sleep flat on his back in order to avoid Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. I did not know that I needed to move his head in order to prevent Flat Head Syndrome. For a short while, Guggy had a bit of a flat head as an infant. Fortunately, his pediatrician was never too concerned about it and it resolved on it's own without any interventions like a special helmet.

There is a new product out that can help prevents avoid flat head syndrome developed by pediatrician and mom of four, Dr. Jane. Tortle is a beanie hat with a wedge on it so you can switch sides that the baby's head rests on evenly. I was also sent a Tortle to try out on Baby Hallie, who is just a week old. We received pink elephants in size medium and I thought it'd fit her given her birth weight (8lb 6oz), but it is a little big right now. Here is a picture for the sake of demonstration. We will be using her Tortle more as she grows.

You can purchase a Tortle at For more information, you can also watch this informative video on Flat Head Syndrome.

  1. I had no idea it was so common! 1 in 2 babies get it, and I am fairly certain Cole has it. :( Guess I will be calling my doc tomorrow to see what we should be doing.

  2. I learned how common the syndrome is.

  3. one in three healthy babies will develop some degree of flat head syndrome after birth. All babies are at risk. And it’s even more common with multiple or premature births.

  4. I never knew that flat head syndrome was so common.

  5. I learned that The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all newborns heads be repositioned regularly to help prevent flat head syndrome.

  6. i learned that it is very common
