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.

My daughter has a flat head, it’s more flat on the middle area. The tortle beanie seems to help only if needed for the sides as when she sleeps it goes on either sides but not in the middle. I wish I could return because she can’t use it but they do not take returns
We appreciate your feedback and want to clarify that the Tortle Beanie is indeed suitable for addressing Brachycephaly (flatness in the middle back) as well as Plagiocephaly (flatness on the side).

However, its effectiveness can vary from one baby to another, and it may take some time to see noticeable improvements.

I’ve looked at so many different methods to help this issue as my son has developed a flat spot on one side. This is the best thing I’ve found that actually takes the weight completely off the flat spot and keeps my sons head turned the other way without me having to constantly monitor his position and move his head myself. I initially got a pillow but wasn’t satisfied that he could still lie on his flat side, so this beanie does the job. Depending on his mood he can thrash around and swivel his head within the cap, but I don’t know what other product could avoid this and do a better job. For the most part it’s fine. I’ve only been using for a few weeks so now it’s a waiting game to see if the flat side will improve, but as far as this product goes, I would definitely recommend.
