Tortle Safety Tips

Do not leave your Tortle beanie on overnight when your baby is unsupervised. (When parents or caretakers are sleeping.)

Remove the beanie every 3-4 hours when your baby awakes for play, feeding, and changing.

Place the beanie back on with the support roll correctly placed when your baby returns to rest in a carrier or crib.

Make sure the Tortle beanie is snug, but not too tight.

Make sure the Tortle beanie is the right size for your baby.
