For the first time the Mimos Baby Pillows are available on the Gold Coast ...
The main purpose of the SIDS safe Mimos Baby Pillow is to prevent flattening of the baby's head by reducing pressure on the skull. It complements perfectly the plethora of positioning advice and skills shown at the clinic, as well as the gentle hands-on techniques used with Babies with 'Flat Head Syndrome'.
Having treated babies with Flat Head Syndrome (more properly known as Deformational Plagiocephaly) for years, I am really excited to have become the Gold Coast's Supplier of the Mimos Baby Pillow. They are not the cheapest Baby Pillow on the market but having researched the subject and I am definitely satisfied that these high quality European-made pillows look, feel and are amongst the best available. There is some evidence of their effectiveness here (Öhman 2013).
The Pillows are made in accordance with SIDS guidelines www.mimospillow.co.uk and have been described as being 94% air. They are made out of a special 3D spacer fabric that is both breathable and safe for a baby. There are appropriate sizes for each baby; they are tested for 'air flow safety', they are machine washable, made out of safe textile materials and in fact are used in some hospital postnatal wards.
The Mimos Baby Pillow manufacturers took a decidedly scientific approach with their design and what the pillow is supposed to do. They say that "the natural latex pillow reduces pressure against the head by providing 400 percent more surface area of contact than a traditional mattress. It also provides 180-degree free rotation of the head and neck. The Mimos Baby Pillow's 100 percent natural latex allows efficient air circulation through millions of air holes; it is also washable and chemical-free."
