    Compré el cojín perfect head maxi y al sacarlo de su envoltorio estaba bastante plana eh dejado unas cuantas horas a ver si cojia algo de forma y nada entonces quería saber si es así (plana) o ahí que hacer algo diferente Gracias


    Il cuscinoè strafighissimo. L'ho acquistato quando mia figlia aveva 5 mesi e dimostrava una asimetria cranica visibile anche a occhio nudo. Dopo due mesi del sonno con questo cuscino la testaè diventata perfettamente simmetrica. Mia pediatra non credeva all'inizio che potessi aiutare e mi proponeva già metodi alternativi che non vi posso dire avevo paura. Adesso mia bambina ha 3 anni e mezzo ed ha la testolina perfetta ci dorme ancora con il suo cuscinetto.Anche se giunta l'ora di cambiarlo con uno adeguato alla sua età. Perciò sono pienamente soddisfatta del acquisto e consiglio vivamente questo prodotto!!

    E excelente. Recomendada por fisioterapeuta

    Tube I cual ente el cojín de esta marca pero a medida que el bebé creció y se movía más en la cuna me re sultana difícil mantenerlo en la posición. Compré esta almohada para la cuna de 60x 120 cm y queda perfecta. Se la llevé a mi fisio y me dejó la aprobación para su uso preventivo de plagiocefalia


    Encantada con el producto

    Super Kissen

    Unser Baby schläft sehr gut auf dem Kissen. Es ist schön weich und der Kopf hat sich schon nach 2 Wochen positiv verformt!

    Frequently asked questions on this product

    Yes, of course, Koala Perfect Head pillows have:

    • Design Patent
    • CE Certification
    • Ergonomic Product Certification by the German Institute for Health and Ergonomics (IGR)
    • Oeko Tex Certification
    • The memory foam is polyurethane, without flame retardant agents added.

    • Distributing pressure evenly across the head, thanks to its structure and material-type
    • Helping babies remain on their back (without restraining them)

    Positioning your baby's neck in the centre of the pillow, near the central indent, ensures maximum comfort. In this position, with their shoulders off the pillow, pressure across the skull is evenly distributed and it promotes correct posture for baby’s neck, cervical area and back.

    The pillow has a deliberately slimmer design around the neck area to prevent baby’s head from tilting forward, and blocking the airways.

    Koala Perfect Head is a small and compact pillow, specifically designed for use in carrycots, cribs, bouncers and prams up to one year of age.

    Koala Perfect Head Maxi is wide and slim (50 cm wide) and designed specifically for use in cots, co-sleeping cribs and wider cribs by infants, babies, and toddlers up to 3 years of age. It is also ideal for use during playtime when a baby is lying on a play mat.

    Koala Perfect Head pillows, as long as used carefully, are designed to be used from the first few months of your baby’s life. However, they are indicated for different uses. Koala Perfect Head can be used up to 12 months old in smaller baby carrying supports, while the Koala Perfect Head Maxi can be used right up until 36 months in co-sleeping cribs or cots.

    Please note that in both cases, from 0 to 6 months (or until the baby can roll over independently) you should use the pillow under adult supervision.

    Both pillows are made of 100% high-quality BASF German Memory Foam. Two pillowcases (made from 75% cotton and 25% polyester) are provided with the pillow. Materials used are Oeko Tex certified.
    The pillows are free of zips, buttons and metal parts to maximise baby's safety.

    !Do not wash the memory foam in water or in the washing machine!

    Memory foam loses its original shape when immersed in water, making it unusable. You can clean the surface with a well wrung out cotton or microfibre cloth and let it air dry flat away from sunlight. You can wash the pillowcases at 30°. However, we recommend that you do not bleach them, do not iron them, do not dry clean them and do not use stain removers or solvents.

    The effectiveness of our baby pillows in the Koala Perfect Head range in distributing pressure evenly across the head is linked to a combination of simple, yet important, daily habits, for many of which there’s a Koala Babycare product to help.

    The multi-functional pregnancy and breastfeeding Koala Hugs pillow offers comfortable support to an infant's little head during a feed. It can also be used under supervision for Tummy Time, which strengthens a baby’s neck muscles, and from six months old it can be used as a sitting aid to keep your baby from resting their head.

    Koala Cuddle Band
    is an ergonomic baby carrier wrap which slips on easily just like a T-shirt. Using Koala Cuddle Band throughout the day or to carry your baby reduces the amount of time your baby spends lying on their backs and consequently, limits localised pressure across their skull.
