The Tetra Organic Head Cradle was developed in Australia with a leading Paediatrician

Flat Spot

To assist with treating a condition where a babies develops a flat spot on the back of their head we created the Tetra Head Cradle. The flatspot develops because of the soft nature of an early infants head that is still forming. The tissue is not yet firm enough to withstand constant pressure. The medical description is plagiocepheny and it is more common because parents are instructed to sleep baby on their back to reduce the risk of SIDS. In doing so the back of the infants head can be misshaped by the constant pressure by laying on their back.

It is available and helpful for parents if they notice their babies head is developing a flat spot in the first 8 weeks. It is designed to help alleviate pressure from a constant source on one part of a babies head. Rather than having to have babies head in just one position where pressure may build up and cause the flat spot, a parent may use the Tetra Head Cradle to move the babies head and rest it in another position. This alleviates the pressure and allows the skin and tissue to fall into its natural state. 

Tea Tree Flakes

The Tetra Organic Head Cradle is filled with naturally breathable Tea Tree Flakes and can be moulded and shaped to adjust to where it is needed for support a baby’s head. Unlike other similar products on the market there is no foam, plastics, latex or toxic chemicals in a Tetra Head Cradle so there is no risk of these synthetic products breaking down, releasing their chemical contents into the sleeping environment and entering a baby's airway. 

Each Organic Tetra Head Cradle is 100% Australian Made. They are made made with Organic Cotton and filled with pure Tea Tree Flakes. Instructions are supplied with each Tetra Head Cradle.

Please note that the Tetra Head Cradle is often considered as a baby pillow however it produced for use only while a baby is under supervision of an adult. The instructions supplied with the Tetra Head Cradle are not a substitute for the advice of a medical expert.
