The incidence of Flat Head Syndrome (Plagiocephaly) has increased to epidemic proportions since 1992 and the introduction of the “Back to Sleep” campaign. More than a million babies are 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. Flat Head Syndrome is almost always 100% preventable with repositioning and Tortle makes this safe and easy. It is recommended that all newborns wear a Tortle for the first 6 months of life to support healthy development.
Dr. Scott, whose specialty is Pediatrics and Neonatology, is recognized as an expert in the area of Flat Head Syndrome (Plagiocephaly). 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. Dr. Jane’s mission is to prevent Flat Head Syndrome, an epidemic affecting the babies across the world. Please visit tortle.com for more information.
