Tortle Giveaway 'Baby Gift Guide'

Did you know that every baby is at risk of developing Flat Head Syndrome with one out of two babies being diagnosed with the Syndrome? However there is an amazing item called the Tortle that can help our little ones from developing this syndrome.

The Tortle was developed by Dr. Jane Scott, a Board Certified Pediatrician and Neonatologist. The Tortle beanie is an FDA-cleared patented Class 1 medical device that promotes proper head and neck movement which is essential for appropriate development.  Tortle helps prevent and treat early stages of flat head syndrome: plagiocephaly (the flattening of the baby’s skull) & torticollis (unbalanced neck muscles). Tortle works by gently deflecting a baby’s head from side to side when they are sitting or lying on the back of their head.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends regular head repositioning of babies younger than six months.

Remember the old steam-humidifiers. They were awkward and extremely hot, yet they served a valuable purpose.

Along with all of the fancy and high-end consumer electronics, the steam humidifier has had a much needed update. Introducing the AOS-S450 by Air-O-Swiss, a fresh and new redesign of the steam humidifier that is smarter, digital, works with a gauge, and best of all, will not burn you. 

Is the humidity of your home ideal? This is a question that you may or may not have wondered in the past. It is one of those issues that, while certainly not life-threatening, can have a measurable impact on your day-to-day life.
