Cuscino per allattamento
E' molto comodo ed indispensabile.
Very comfortable for my baby
Cuscino come da descrizione del venditore. Il mio bimbo di 3 mesi si trova comodo sia durante l'allattamento sia durante le ore notturne nella culla. Non ho fatto delle foto ma sembra che la plagiocefalia posizionale sia migliorata. Lo consiglio. Segnalo l'accuratezza nell'imballo.

Frequently asked questions on this product
How do you use Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding?
Insert your arm through the hole and slide it up to elbow height or to where your baby's head usually rests. Ensure your baby's head is aligned with the pillow's central indent, this will allow for an even distribution of pressure across the entire head.
What is Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding for?
Whilst being breastfed, the baby remains in the same position, pressing its head against their mum’s arm, for a long period time. This position facilitates the onset of flat head syndrome (positional plagiocephaly) or it can cause any existing flat head condition to worsen. With Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding, you will have a support on hand to help you prevent and treat flat head syndrome throughout the day, even when breastfeeding.
Can I use it even if I am bottle feeding?
Of course. Whilst bottle feeding, the baby's head remains in supine position (facing upwards) and, more often than not, the mum tends to use the same position and side for feeding, which favours the onset of plagiocephaly.
Can I use it together with Koala Hugs?
Of course, Koala Hugs is a useful support for mums, it helps them to avoid tilting their back towards the baby when feeding. However, it does not provide the right support for baby's head, which needs to rest on mum’s arms. This is where KPH Breastfeeding comes to the rescue!
Can I wash the pillow?
The inner pillow can be easily removed, and it comes with a second replacement pillowcase, so you can wash your pillowcase. However, please note that the pillow itself cannot be washed, memory foam should not be washed in water.
Can it be used for breastfeeding in various positions?
Of course. Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding has been purposely designed for use during breastfeeding, formula feeding, in the rugby-hold or lying feeding positions. It really does adapt to your every need.
Can I also use it as a pillow instead of KPH?
No, we do not recommend replacing KPH with KPHB, and this is why: The central indent in the Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding is larger than that of the Koala Perfect Head, this allows the pillow to fold when breastfeeding. Koala Perfect Head indent is smaller and the memory foam is thicker and more supportive.
Can feeding position cause or aggravate flat head syndrome (plagiocephaly)?
During the first few months, a baby is fed every 2-3 hours for a duration of 20-40 minutes. This means that we are feeding our baby for about 5/6 hours a day. Whilst being fed, the baby's head rests on their mum’s arm (a rigid and uneven surface) creating localised pressure. This pressure, over such a long period of time, can cause or aggravate plagiocephaly.
