Frequently asked questions on this product

Which positions can I breastfeed in with Koala Hug Baby?
There are several positions to choose from to breastfeed your baby.
It’s important to choose a quiet private place for feeding time, to sit in a comfortable position which doesn’t restrict your movements and to be able to change position without straining your back or arms with your baby's weight.
You can find further guidance on the various positions you can use on this link.
Can I use Koala Hug Baby for bottle-feeding?
Of course! It’s also ideal for bottle-feeding. By positioning your baby towards you or dad with their head resting on the higher edge, it’ll help prevent post-feed reflux.
In addition, the pillow reduces tension in your shoulders and arms.
What recommendations should I follow to ensure I use Koala Hug Baby pillow correctly?
It’s important not to use the pillow when your baby is sleeping, and also to ensure your baby's airways are always clear.
When using it for relaxation, avoid resting your baby snuggled in the middle of the pillow or resting too high on the pillow to ensure they can breathe properly and freely.
The pillow is not designed for use in cribs or beds.
How can I tell if my baby is latched on to my breast correctly?
Your arms and shoulders should be relaxed and ready to bring your baby close to your breast.
When your baby is latched on properly you shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort.
Once your baby is in position, bring them closer to your breast, making sure that their mouth is in front of your nipple.
Your baby should suck with their mouth wide open, taking in most of your areola and nipple.
You can find more useful information on how to enjoy a pleasant breastfeeding experience on this link.
Can I use Koala Hug Baby for nursing my baby to sleep?
Koala Hug Baby is only designed for use under adult supervision and for while your baby is awake.
How long do I have to wait for Koala Hug Baby to reshape to its original size before use?
Koala Hug Baby is delivered inside a vacuum pack for two main reasons: to ensure maximum hygiene during delivery and to minimise volume, thus, reduce impact on the environment.
Once the vacuum pack is opened, the pillow returns to its original size within approximately 24 hours.
How can I wash Hug Baby?
It can be machine-washed at 30°. You can also tumble dry it on a low temperature cycle.
