  1. Who is this pillow intended for?

It is intended for the prevention and correction of positional cranial deformities. Its effectiveness is greater during the first six months of life because the skull is especially soft during this period. After 6 months, it is more complicated to correct cranial deformities but, until the cranial fontanelles are not closed (16-18 months), there is still a chance to correct and, more importantly, prevent it from getting worse.

  1. How do I use this pillow?

Ideal for resting in the cot or in the stroller. The baby should be placed in the supine position (face up) and with the head in the pillow cavity. Under no circumstances should the baby be placed face down since it is not designed to be used in this position.

To prevent plagiocephaly, it is appropriate to use the pillow specially during the first six months. For corrective measures, it is important to start using the pillow as soon as possible. You should consult your doctor and use the pillow as a complement to physiotherapy and tummy time.

  1. For how long can I use this pillow?

It is recommended to use the pillow for prevention the first 6 months of life because the head is growing fast and the skull is especially soft during this period. For correction, its effectiveness is greater during the first six months of life but it can be effective until the fontanelles close (16-18 months). After this period, you can keep using the pillow as a complement for rest.



  1. How do I choose the right size for my baby? Why is it important?

The Mimos® pillow is available in five different sizes to suit the baby’s age. The value we use to choose one size or another is the head circumference. It is important to choose the right size to obtain the appropriate pressure relief effect and to provide a proper rest of the cervical area.

FAQS_eng_ver2_html_39064d43.gif

*Size P is the same as the size S but without the edges. It is only necessary for some models of strollers where the sizes XS, S or M don’t fit.

FYI there may be exceptions in these measures due to genetics, some babes are small and some bigger. Therefore if you have doubts advice size with doctor or distributor of Mimos pillow.

  1. My baby is less than 4 months old and has a cranial perimeter of 41 cm. What size shall I get?

Size S. If your baby is less than 4 months old and has a cranial perimeter of 41 cm, then the area of the neck may not be sufficiently developed to use an M.

  1. My baby is more than 4 months old and has a cranial perimeter of 41 cm. What size shall I get?

Size M. If your baby is more than 4 months old and has a cranial perimeter of 41 cm, then the area of the neck is more developed and the baby can use an M.

  1. My baby has a cranial perimeter of 39 cm. Can I buy an M so my baby can use the pillow longer?

No. It is essential to use the right size of the pillow at the right time in order to achieve the expected results. Take into account that size S can be used until the baby has a cranial perimeter of 46 cm, which usually happens between 8 and 10 months old.

  1. My baby is 6 months old and suffers from plagiocephaly. Can I correct the asymmetry with the Mimos® pillow?

The Mimos® pillow relieves and distributes the pressure on the head while it grows. At 6 months of age, the head grows more slowly which is why the improvement is also slower. However, until the fontanels are closed, there is still the possibility of correcting the cranial asymmetry. How much Mimos can correct depends on several factors such as the severity of the asymmetry, age and growth status of the skull, which can vary between babies. It is important to obtain a treatment plan from a professional, physiotherapist or paediatrician. In addition, in order to achieve the best result, the Mimos® pillow should be combined with physiotherapy treatment and Tummy time.

  1. What’s the recommendation for pre-owned pillows?

The Mimos® pillow is a medical device so its use must be individual, that is a pillow for each baby. It adapts to the head of each baby to provide adequate support for rest. Each pillow is designed to be used approximately 8 months, which lasts an average treatment. After a use it can lose its shape, compromising its effectiveness. For this reason, it is not recommended to use pillows that have already been used by other babies.

  1. My baby suffers from Scaphocephaly. Can I use this pillow?

Mimos pillow is specially designed to correct Plagiocephaly and Brachycephaly, but has also shown effectiveness in babies with Scaphocephaly because the area beneath the head makes it is easier for a baby with Scaphocephaly to stay on the back of the head. A baby with Scaphocephaly normally tends to turn to the side, in this position Mimos in not providing the best relieve. So scaphocephaly cases are individual.

  1. Can my baby use the pillow for sleep?

Yes, the pillow has a high safety level and is certified as CO2 re-breathing safe and anti-suffocation (TUV). The pillow has passed the tests as a low risk product almost in the same line as a mattress. The recommendation for no pillow use is because of the risk of suffocation, here is where Mimos® pillow is different from normal baby pillows.

  1. Can my baby sleep on the side in the Mimos® pillow?

No, the Mimos® pillow is specially designed to sleep and rest in the supine position (face up), the position recommended by experts. But Mimos allows free movements of the head so the baby can turn the head to the sides.

  1. Are there any flame-retardants in the Mimos® pillow?

No, since these chemical components are not good for babies. Even so, Mimos complies with the ignitability regulations BS5852 and ISO 12952.
