The Best Baby Pillows to Avoid Flat Head Syndrome

Best-Baby-PillowsOne way that some parents are avoiding the effects of flat head syndrome is by using specially designed infant pillows.

  1. Love the Mimos Pillow!! It’s the only one that is CLINICALLY PROVEN & BREATHABLE which was a huge factor for us for the safety. It totally worked with our son, his plagiocephaly improved dramatically within the first month. With our second son, we used Mimos from day 1 and it prevented him from getting a flat spot altogether. Mimos was the only pillow our pediatric physio would recommend as it’s the only one that is a medical device.
