Baby Safe Pillows

Mimos Baby Safe Pillows
 
Mimos pillows are a specially designed and engineered pillow for babies to aid in the prevention and correction of Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly, also known as Flat Head Syndrome.
 
Plagoicephaly is where there is a partial flattening on one side of the head/skull.
Brachycephaly is a flattening of the back of the head creating that creates a wide/flat appearance.
 
The cause of flat head syndrome can be from a number of reasons which may include:
- Birth; moving through the birth canal the baby's skull is exposed to external pressures and cause compression unevenly on the skull,
- Birth trauma; with the use of forceps or ventouse delivery, creating strains on the tissues around the skull
- Being in the one position for a long period of time ie, babies spend most time lying on their backs, 
- Torticollis or Wry neck; this is where the muscles on one side of the neck are in spasm and shortened which causes the head to rotate to one direction and position constantly therefore affecting the shape of the skull and hence lead to plagiocephaly.
Mimos Baby Safe Pillows from osteopath st kilda
The pillow's specialty design reduces pressure by 400% on the skull and encourages healthy head movement. The fabric is breathable and the pillow is antiallergic and safe for contact with the skin. The gap in the pillow allows for the baby's head to be alleviated of any pressure, and be in a more natural shape rather than have the external surface of the mattress/pram/play-mat forces pushing into the head. It also allows for easy side to side movement of the head which helps muscular strength and mobility for the neck muscles. It is most effective for babies from birth to 6 months of age.
 
We will also discuss the safe use of the pillow, adhering to SIDS guidelines,  referral to a paediatric specialist or referral for a cranial remodelling helmet if required.
