The Clevamama Baby Pillow is a great product because it can protect the round shape of the baby’s soft head. It is suitable for young babies because it is lightweight, breathable and has been shown to reduce heat retention. It is important to note that babies should not be left unattended while the pillow is being used in the crib in order to help prevent suffocation and SIDS. If your infant is developing a flat spot on the head, you should definitely take a closer look at this product.
I loved using the Clevamama baby pillow when my son (who had a combination of plagiocephaly and brachycephaly) was lying on his playmat. We have hardwood floors and it provided extra cushion to protect his head. I also used to bathe him in our kitchen sink, so I would put the pillow down on the counter when I changed him and got him wrapped in his towel after his bath. It has the feel of a really nice quality memory foam pillow. I love to sleep on memory foam so I have to think babies would find it comfortable as well.
When my son got a little older he slept on this pillow for several years, he loves it and obviously thinks it’s very comfortable, and now they even have a toddler pillow version! It’s very reasonably priced and we certainly got a ton of use out of ours. We also travel with ours, here’s my son at almost 4 years old using his in the car.

Clevamama Baby Pillow Pros:
The pillow is very soft and comfortable for baby. Made with Airflow™, which will draw away moisture and increase airflow, it is a relief to parents looking to help babies who may typically sweat a lot during sleep. The pillow is made from ClevaFoamä, which is scientifically proven to help protect baby’s skull.
When a sleeping baby has the correct alignment of skull and spine he or she will have a more restful sleep. The pillow can even reverse the appearance of baby flat head for babies that have already developed this condition.
Clevamama Baby Pillow Cons:
It is possible that the occasional baby may still continue to sweat despite the design of this pillow. My son didn’t have this problem (and we are in Florida). A downside is that this has not been proven to be safe for use with young infants while sleeping without supervision.
Clevamama Baby Pillow Recommendation:
The Clevamama Pillow is recommended for use with babies who have already experienced a flattening of their baby’s head or in cases where parents wish to prevent flat head syndrome from occurring. In addition, parents interested in assuring that the baby has the proper alignment of skull and spine may especially be interested in this pillow. I found this pillow very helpful whenever my baby was resting on his back on a harder surface, such as his playmat.
