Insert the arm inside the hole and slide it up to the height of the elbow or where your child’s head normally rests.
Have the baby’s head coincide with the hole in the center of the pillow, in this way the pressure will be distributed evenly over the entire skull.
During breastfeeding, the baby stays still in the same position, pressing the head against the mother’s arm for a long time. This position could lead to positional plagiocephaly or worsen an existing one. For this reason it is good to prevent Plagiocephaly at any time of the day, including breastfeeding.
Of course! In any case during breastfeeding, the baby’s head always remains in a supine position and often the mother doesn’t alternate the arm. This behavior can lead to an increase in the possibilities of positional plagiocephaly, which is exactly why KPHB is even more useful in this case.
Of course, Koala Hugs is very useful for mothers, so that they don’t bend the back towards the baby while breastfeeding, however it can’t give the right support to the baby’s head that will have to stay on the mother’s arm. This is why KPHB is of great help!
The pillow is easily removable and it’s sold with a spare pillowcase, so, yes, you will be able to wash the pillowcases but not the pillow itself, we would love to remind you that the memory foam can’t be washed in water.
Of course, Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding can be easily used to both natural and artificial breastfeed, in the rugby ball hold or while lying down. It really is perfect for every need of yours!
No, we do not recommend replacing KPH with KPHB, that’s why:
- Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding must be used under the supervision of an adult because of the double layer of fabric that allows you to wear it, while with Koala Perfect Head you can let your baby sleep peacefully as its memory foam is perforated and anti-suffocation.
- The hole of Koala Perfect Head Breastfeeding is wider than that of Koala Perfect Head, this allows the pillow to bend during breastfeeding. The one in Koala Perfect Head, on the other hand, is smaller and the memory foam is thicker and more sustained, making it more suitable for prolonged sleep.
In the first month of life, feedings occur every 2-3 hours and last from 20 to 40 minutes. This means that we breastfeed our baby for about 5/6 hours a day.
During breastfeeding (or during artificial feeding) the baby’s head rests on the arm (which is a rigid and uneven surface) creating localized pressure. This pressure for such a long period of time can cause, or aggravate, plagiocephaly.
