Mimos Pillow Helps to Relieve the Pressure Exerted on Your Baby's Skull During Rest and Sleep Babies habitually have a preferred side which they will sleep on, meaning the pressure is usually focused on one side of the head. As a baby gets older it can be increasingly difficult to improve this sleeping position through repositioning and Tummy-time. Repositioning requires unwavering attention, especially during the night, and may upset your baby if they feel uncomfortable being moved out of their chosen favourite position. Mimos Pillow removes the need to worry about constantly repositioning your baby. Simply place your baby so his or her head is located within the pillow's cavity.
This will reduce the pressure by distributing the weight of the head over a much larger area of contact. Mimos Pillow is proud to boast the following accolades:
Note: Pillow's cover not normally included and is optional because the pillow itself is washable. However, the cover helps to maintain hygiene and cleaning easier.

We tried this pillow for the past 2 weeks, during sleep, in the carry cot and when using the play gym.
I can tell he doesn’t love it and during the night after few hours he fights to get off it and then I remove it for some time.
I can say that I see a difference and we will continue to use it and I will order the size M too.
It’s quite expensive, it’s true, but I believe is worth it.
I wish that I was informed about the flat head in the antenatal classes. We have listened to the NHS advice not to have anything in the cot because of SIDS. But babies don’t move at all the first 3 months so I wished that I have used this kind of pillow with the hole in it to prevent flat head and not have to correct it.
Also the customer service was very prompt! Also, fast delivery!
I'm using this for my 4 month old son who has developed Plagiocephaly due to a preference for one side and I did not pick this up quick enough. I'm using this pillow during daytime naps only and at night repositioning him, along with some physio excersises recommended by a cranial doctor. I've only been using it for 2 weeks so not sure if it's working but I can tell it will work and is the perfect shape to re-mould my son's head. We are trying all of this for 1 month as recommened, if we see results we will not need to purchase a helmet for him. I've also washed the pillow at 20 degrees and it washes just fine. I bought two pillowcases which have been very handy too and easier to wash than the pillow. Wish I'd known about this pillow from his birth to prevent this from happebing but would definately recommend this pillow.
Noticed a difference within a few days, shipping was very fast too.
I haven't had the item for long. It goes against safe sleep advice so I haven't dared to use overnight but have whenever led in the day. Seems comfortable and is breathable. Covers pointless if for reflux as have holes for breathability so goes straight through. I have been using with a muslin in the day so I can watch her and it stays cleaner. I can't see any effectiveness but been used for only a week. The customer service however has been fantastic! They could not have been more helpful or understanding.
The one thing I think needs more clarity is the sizing. Even if the babies head circumference fits into the medium it may not be suitable. Unless you have a baby older than 5 months I think you need the small. I ended up needing two because of this mistake. Customer service were really helpful but I believe this happens a lot so more info on the website would help.
Yes, it's expensive for a pillow, but after the first night, thought it was well worth it. My new born daughter slept much more peacefully and after a week or so her head showed signs of improvement.
