Tortle Products Launches in Babies R Us Nationwide
Being a parent of infants we tend to worry a lot about everything. Especially first time parents. Whether we will hurt them, are we holding them the correct way, how often they need to eat and change diapers or even if they are sleeping to much. When I had my youngest son Eli his skull began to shape flat on one side of his head. When my husband and I noticed it we immediately took him to our pediatrician and she said everything is fine for now just change his sleeping position. As a mom of three my first two didn’t have this problem and can easily happen to any child. Tortle was not discovered when I had Eli and definitely would have purchased if it was.
Denver, Colorado—(February 19, 2014) — Tortle Products, manufacturer of the innovative Tortle beanie, launches in more than 340 Babies R Us stores nationwide. The Tortle is a cotton repositioning beanie that aids in the prevention and treatment of Flat Head Syndrome. The Tortle works by gently repositioning baby’s head while baby is laying on their back, sitting in a car seat, stroller, bouncer, swing or other baby gear that rests against baby’s head.
“We are thrilled to be able to further increase awareness and prevention of Flat Head Syndrome with Tortle now being available at Babies “R” Us, one of the world’s leading dedicated juvenile products retailers,” said Dr. Jane Scott, inventor of the Tortle and a Board Certified Pediatrician and Neonatologist. 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 Flat Head Syndrome.
The incidence of Flat Head Syndrome has increased to epidemic proportions since the introduction of the “Back to Sleep” campaign in 1992. More than a million babies are diagnosed with the condition each year in the U.S. alone. The increase in diagnosis has been attributed to baby’s lack of movement and excessive amount of time infants spend on or against flat surfaces. The American Academy of Pediatrics does recommend regular head repositioning of babies younger than six months. This can be accomplished by newborns wearing a Tortle beanie for the first 6 months of life to support healthy development.
Babies “R” Us stores will carry the Tortle beanie in stores and online. There will be two color options available in stores, pink and blue in addition white will be available on-line. The Tortle beanies are available in small, medium and large sizes at a suggested retail price of $19.99.
