Champion Your Baby’s Health

Tortle new and revolutionary head repositioning beanie is designed to help prevent and eliminate Flat Head Syndrome as your baby grows.

The new Tortle Lucky Elephant design has several improvements that make it especially good for infants who already have a flat head syndrome. It has a redesigned front opening which makes it easier for you to place it correctly on the baby’s head and redesigned side tabs for improved fit. It also has a slightly larger and contoured roll to better deflect a baby’s head off the flat spot.

We’ve also added some ‘silicon dots’ to the inside facing to help prevent slippage. The silicone dots on the inside of the Tortle are similar to those found on yoga and athletic gear, and they will help keep the Tortle positioned correctly on your baby’s head. They may leave small marks on your baby’s skin. This is normal. They are temporary and they will disappear shortly after the Tortle is removed.

When you first place a Tortle on your baby, he or she may fuss and seem not to like it. This is natural, especially if your baby is not used to wearing a hat. The Tortle may also cause them to fuss because it is preventing them from resting their head in the position that caused the flat spot or Torticollis in the first place. Most babies adjust quickly to their new head position and adapt well to your repositioning practices.

The Lucky Elephant beanie promotes your child’s healthy development with the most advanced positioning aid for the management and prevention of flat head syndrome. By actively deflecting your baby’s head to different areas while they’re lying against a flat surface such as a mattress, car seat, or stroller, the Lucky Elephant gently reshapes your baby’s head.

Best way to fit a Tortle Demo by Dr. Jane Scott

  • PREVENT & CORRECT FLAT SPOTS: Tortle is the low-cost, active solution to an epidemic among infants — flat head syndrome. The repositioning beanie is designed to help correct and prevent flat head and its associated medical problems. This device expertly provides your baby with repositioning care and support so that they will have the best chance of healthy development.
  • HOW TO USE: Simply slip the beanie onto your baby’s head with the roll placed between the back of the head and one of the baby’s ears, and fasten the hook-and-loop opening on the front. Next, adjust the side elastic straps by pulling them forward and securing them in place. With the help of the straps and the non-slip-grip silicone dots, the cap will stay in place.
  • SIZING: This innovative cap comes in 2 convenient sizes: medium and large. The medium is for children with a head circumference of 15” to 16.5” (usually 2-4 months old), and the large is for children with a head circumference of 16.5” to 18” (usually 4-6 months old). It takes time for the baby to become familiar with the product. Repositioning the head will help to overcome the problem but they will often experience some initial discomfort. THIS MEANS ITS WORKING!
  • REPOSITIONING TECHNIQUES: There are a variety of repositioning techniques you can use along with this corrector beanie for quicker results. Consider alternating where you place their head each night. You can also move your newborn’s cot to different parts of the room. Placing a mobile in different places on and around the cot may also help so they won’t rest their head in the same position.
  • TORTLE: As a mother and a doctor, Tortle’s creator, Dr. Jane Scott, knows that new parents have enough to worry about — Dr. Jane herself is a mother of four! She knows first-hand the fear that permeates the parenting experience, which is why she set out to design a device that would help relieve some new-parent worry and promote health and wellbeing in new babies.

Great product

Works great. Noticed an improvement in flat head after two days using it.

Great results in a few days

We have been using this product for a few weeks now (at the time of the review) and it has done an awesome job on our little one. Her head is now nicely rounded. We could see improvements within a few days. I would highly recommend the product to any parent looking to correct a flat spot on their baby or who wants to get their baby's head well rounded into shape. We got results in both those areas.

Thank you for creating such a fantastic product.

Dr. Jane,

The Tortle fixed my son’s plagiocephaly. In the span of three weeks, his asymmetry reduced from 5 mm to 3 mm, and his head is now a great shape.

We took C to a leading head specialist when he was three months old, and they recommended the helmet for him due to concerns over asymmetry and ear shift. Another mother in my mom’s group posted about the Tortle, and we chose to try it as a less invasive option before committing to the helmet. He wore it nonstop, except when we slept. After just a week, we noticed improvement. Three weeks later, his plagiocephaly was no longer an issue, although we continued to use the Tortle to maintain his headshape.

During our follow-up visit at 4.5 months old, the head specialist confirmed he no longer needed the helmet. It was such a relief and feeling of accomplishment knowing we helped our son – and saved quite a bit of money in the process.

Thank you for creating such a fantastic product.

I also want to thank you for your company’s fabulous support. We appreciated your advice and encouragement, offering to look at pictures to ensure we were using the Tortle correctly.

All the best,
