A ‘head flopped forward’ position can restricts airflow through the windpipe.


Did you know that your child’s airway can become obstructed if their head falls forward?

We recently read an interesting article which speaks about the fatal effects an incorrectly positioned head can have on your child’s airways.

The reason for lack of oxygen is that your baby’s head can either flop forward or fall backwards, obstructing the airway.

A child’s neck is delicate and in a ‘head flopped forward’ position the airflow through the windpipe can become restricted.

In either case, infants have poor neck control and may not be able to correct their position themselves.

The Nap Strap helps correct the position of the head by providing a gentle support to prevent the head from falling forwards during nap time car rides.
