I’m sure you can imagine the feeling of a stiff neck after a night of sleeping wrong. That’s similar to Torticollis, but babies don’t have the strength or motor skills to alleviate this problem themselves. Furthermore, babies who have Torticollis don’t want to turn their heads to a different position because it hurts them to do so.
In order to alleviate Torticollis, parents will need to be referred to a Pediatric physical therapist to learn to stretch the baby’s tight neck muscle correctly. Tortle can be used to reposition and under guidance with PT’s can ensure proper positioning of baby’s head.
Luckily, Tortle does just that.
