MIMOS PILLOW is a tri-dimensional polyester pillow which designed specially by doctors, neurosurgeon and physiotherapist to reduce the pressure under the head. This allows the head to grow normally and round out to its natural shape.
It is very effective when used before 6 months of age. It is recommended to use the pillow for prevention from the very first day of life.
This model has been designed for babies between 0 and 3 months of age. The first few weeks of life, the bones at the back of the neck (cervical) are contracted due to delivery. This is normal and all babies will extend their cervical bones before 2 months of age. Meanwhile it is necessary to use a pillow that supports correctly the cervical area while reducing the pressure on the baby skull.
Use this pillow if:
- Your baby is just born and his head is perfectly round but you want to prevent the appearance of a flat spot.
- Your baby is born with a flat spot to stop it growing bigger and help him recover his natural head shape. Usually babies are born with a flat spot due to being positioned head down on the uterus for long time before delivery thus the head grows during weeks molded to the uterus. Another reason is the use of forceps or sucking pad during delivery.
Mimos pillow is not designed to help you position your baby in any certain way. It works by allowing a natural non forced sleeping posture and relieving the pressure from the back of the head.
Just place your baby head on the center of the pillow cavity and allow him to sleep as she please as long as the head stays in the cavity. She will turn the head from side to side and that is a very good thing since she is reinforcing her neck muscles and by that reducing side preference. We believe this is a more sensible strategy than forcing the baby to stay on a certain position.
