about this item

Repositioning is recommended for all newborns; every baby is at risk for developing Flat Head Syndrome, plagiocephaly or torticollis. Because baby's skulls are soft, yet heavy and necks are weak, infants are vulnerable to developing these conditions in the first few months of life. This is why, proper movement and deliberate repositioning of your infant from birth is one of the keys to the healthy development of your baby. Tortle is a simple, comfortable beanie that is FDA cleared to help prevent and treat Flat Head Syndrome (plagiocephaly and torticollis). Early detection and correct use of Tortle will ensure the best long term results. To properly use the Tortle, you must pull the beanie down as far as possible so the crown of the head is fitted into the top of beanie and ears are covered. If beanie is covering baby's eyebrows, you can fold the front of the beanie. Remember to let your Tortle grow with your baby and purchase the next Tortle size!   Size Small fits 0-2 months, 5-10 lbs & 13-15" head circumference. Size Medium fits 2-4 months, 10-15 lbs & 15-16.5" head circumference. Size Large fits 4-6 months, 15-20 lbs & 16.5-18" head circumference.

Tortle is a simple, comfortable beanie to help prevent and treat Flat Head Syndrome (plagiocephaly and torticollis). Early detection and correct use of Tortle will ensure the best long term results.
To help prevent flat head syndrome, we recommend that all babies wear a Tortle at least 8 hours per day during their first 6 months. He/she will need a Small, Medium, and Large to keep up with their rapid growth.
To properly use the Tortle, you must pull the beanie down as far as possible so the crown of the head is fitted into the top of beanie and ears are covered. If beanie is covering baby's eyebrows, you can fold the front of the beanie.
When using the Tortle to prevent Flat Head Syndrome (plagiocephaly and torticollis), place support roll behind baby's ear to aid in the repositioning of baby's head from left to right.
Tortle repositioning beanies have an opening along the seam to add a decorative headwrap and flower to accessorize your beanie.

I was hopeful but had to return this. It fits around the head but it's way too tall. There is a lot of space on top, which isn't right for this to fit properly. Plus my baby hated it and screamed. Great idea so it's too bad that it didn't work out

The material is soft and comfortable and matches well with girly gendered clothing. Read the directions before using. The position behind the ear is important and this is not to be used overnight-only during day positioning or when supervised during naps. Time will tell whether it makes a difference...see moreof the reviewer's review
