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.

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.
Using the mimos pillow a few weeks now and love it. It seems very comfy for baby and I actually have a second one for the pram. Hopefully in time I will see an improvement in my baby’s flat spot. It’s definitely helping keeping her from lying on the flat spot
This does what is expected. Stops my baby from locking his head to one side. High quality and he seems comfortable.
The only drawback I have noticed is the pillow has started to permanently "flatten" on the side that he leans towards, after 1 month of use. Still effective, but worth noting.
"Discovered this after a ton of research online and many tears thinking I may have to get a helmet. At 3-4 months we saw a very noticeable flat spot had developed on babies left side which affected the ears as in one was further forward than the other. This pillow stopped it in its tracks and now at 8 months her head has improved by I'd say 80%. Some of this could have been on its own but I wasn't willing to wait and see. She slept fine on this from the first night an she also had it in her pram and car seat. Ultimately you can have as much tummy time as you like, but it's nothing compared to the amount of time they spend sleeping an traveling.Yes it's £80 odd quid including the pillow but we would have spent a hell of a lot more to avoid it getting worse and having to look into the helmet option. The one negative is it pushed my babies ears forward depending on which side she turned her head but I used a mesh cap that came with some ear buddies purchased which did the trick.Overall I am so happy & relieved that I found this, I believed from what I had read that it would stop it getting worse but didn't honestly expect it to improve the situation.
