As a Paediatric Osteopath I see quite a few babies with Plagiocephaly or Flat Head. While osteopathic treatment is of huge benefit for these babies, I found that the Mimos Pillow was the most significant additional intervention. I have been recommending this pillow for over a year now and I have seen the difference it can make in just a few weeks. For parents of a baby with a flat head, it is a product we recommend every day. We believe in it so much we have even mentioned it in our book, Cherished Baby and Child.
As an experienced paediatrician I regularly see children whose parents are concerned about plagiocephaly. The Mimos Pillow alleviates pressure on the skull and it is claimed that it improves skull shape more quickly than a baby without intervention. I look forward to further studies, but in the meantime would much prefer to recommend this product (less than £50) as opposed to the extremely expensive helmet which is available for over £2000 particularly as the NHS is at present unable to support the purchase of such items.
The Mimos pillow is a well designed. It reduces the pressure on the back and sides of a baby’s head, and the shape of the pillow keeps the baby’s neck and neck nicely positioned. It is also made from a breathable material, comfortable for baby and reassuring for parents.
“If I could go back in time I would buy a MIMOS pillow as soon as I noticed my baby had a tendency to sleep with their head in a specific position as I do believe it would prevent any [Flat Head Syndrome] issues. The pillow itself is breathable unlike the clevamama which always made me a bit nervous.”

“Best investment we have ever made! At 3 months old we noticed that our daughter is developing flattened skull on one side. After reading a lot of information we decided to get this pillow and so happy we did it! She is now 2 and her head is nice and round. We used the pillow for a year, in bed, cot, pram, playmat and we could notice differences after a little while. It is expensive but so worth it! I wish I knew sooner, would have used it from day one!”

"It helped to improve the head shape and most importantly my little one loved it! It feels very safe and is worth every penny you pay for it.we bought next size from eBay to safe money as these pillows are expensive."

"I was a bit nervous buying this pillow given the price and also some of the 1 star reviews but we really can be any happier.Our baby who is 5 months has started to get a flat head as he always sleeps in his right, we have tried everything and to try and encourage him to rest his head in the opposite or up right position but nothing has worked to date. This pillow does the trick, time will tell if it also fixes the light flatness on one side. This pillow was recommended to us by his cranial osteopath and after just three nights of use we see the light at the end of the tunnel. It is expensive but we feel worth every penny as it’s given us some peace of mind."
