Did you know 1 in 60 babies born will experience
Flat Head Syndrome?

While every parenting book and prenatal class out there talks about preventing SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), the topic of Flat Head Syndrome (FHS) is not often spoken about. But current stats show us that FHS is on the rise, so we can all agree that this is definitely something worth discussing! Thankfully for us, Singapore-based experts, Orthopaedia will open its doors in Hong Kong in April, being the first of its kind to provide services and awareness on Flat Head Syndrome.

The co-founders, and certified Orthotics, Susanna Koh and Heidi Mak have over 30 years of experience (practising in Singapore, Boston, United Kingdom, Australia and now Hong Kong) under their belt, so its safe to say we will be getting the very best services out there. While offering their expertise for patients in Singapore, Hong Kong parents will now have the opportunity to receive the same treatment for their babies. If you’ve ever wondered if your baby does in fact have a flat head, you can put those concerns to rest with a visit to the clinic.

Orthopaedia is giving Sassy Mama readers a FREE Flat Head Shape assessment (applicable only for the first consult) for babies who might have Flat Head Syndrome.

Early intervention and treatment helps to rectify the condition which involves repositioning, cranial remoulding helmet, and craniosacral therapy. The efficiency of the treatment is based on the age of the baby and the severity of their condition. Mamas and papas with newborns, between the age of 4 to 8 months (which is often coined “the golden window”), should seek this time for the most effective treatment as it becomes more difficult when the fontanelle closes around 12 to 14 months.

Orthopaedia works with STARband (Orthomerica), the worldwide go-to leader in designing, fabricating and developing customisable solutions, so that our bubbas receive the best personalised care possible. We can also be confident in our choices knowing that the STARband Cranial Helmet is the first cranial remoulding orthosis with FDA clearance. Each helmet is made specifically for each patient making sure the fit is perfect. This is definitely not a place where “one size fits all”! Plus, the cranial helmets have been used for more than 25 years to help babies with Flat Head Syndrome!

So what are you waiting for mamas, if you’ve ever been curious about whether or not your baby has FHS, make sure to book your baby in for a free consultation today!

Note: The Cranial Remoulding Helmet Therapy will only be available to babies with moderate to severe Flat Head Syndrome.

We've been looking for clever ways for the whole family to eat more veggies.... purple pasta might do the trick! ⠀
Insta-Worthy Sweet Potato Pasta 💜
1 cup of purple sweet potato, or orange (which is easier to work with texture wise i find) steamed or roasted ⠀⠀
1-1 1/2 cup of unsweetened plant milk (but we'll use regular)⠀⠀
1 clove of roasted garlic ⠀⠀
1-2 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes ⠀
1 tablespoon of olive oil or vegan butter ⠀
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice ⠀⠀
1 teaspoon smoked paprika ⠀⠀
pinch of sea salt (to taste) ⠀⠀
pinch of black pepper (to taste) ⠀⠀
Blend all your ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth, adjusting the thickness to your liking by adding less or more (plant) milk. Adjust seasonings to your preference also, and serve over freshly cooked pasta. This sauce is best enjoyed right away, as it can clump and change in texture after being refrigerated.⠀⠀
