Baby Tortle by Dr. Jane

Dr. Jane knows mommies and babies. She has made it her life’s mission to actively work with parents to help avoid and correct problems associated with an abnormal head shape (plagiocephaly), primarily teaching parents the proper position for a young infant and the importance of changing the positioning frequently, while still honoring the Back to Sleep principles.

Plagiocephaly and Flat Head Syndrome are not a funny matter, but they are our reality and we should know more about it.

Example of an infant with plagiocephaly.

Positional plagiocephaly is a disorder in which the back or one side of an infant’s head is flattened, often with little hair growing in that area. It’s most often the result of babies spending a lot of time lying on their backs or often being in a position where the head is resting against a flat surface (such as in cribs, strollers, swings, and playpens).
