What do Koala mums and dads think about it?
Utilizzandolo giornalmente il problema di appiattimento della testaè molto molto migliorato nel giro di qualche mese.
Il bimbo ha la testa molto più stabile e in posizione corretta
Su consiglio dell'osteopata l'ho preso per mio figlio e devo dire cheè molto utile
Creo q está ayudando a redondear la cabeza de nuestro bebé de 3 meses pero lo más importante es tener sesión semanal con osteopata y fisio. Portear y portear. La slmihada solo si está dormido. Yo la utilizo en todos los sitios
Me ha gustado que venga en una bolsa con cremallera robusta también me ha gustado que venga con dos fundas. Son fundas de calidad y la almohada parece ser cómoda merece la pena comprar esta almohada.

Frequently asked questions on this product
Have Koala Perfect Head Pillows been certified?
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.
What can a Koala Perfect Head pillow help with?
• Distributing pressure evenly across the head, thanks to its structure and material-type • Helping babies remain on their back (without restraining them)
With young babies, and if Koala Perfect Head Maxi isn’t positioned properly, isn't there a risk that it may cause a baby’s neck to bend?
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.
Where can you use Koala Perfect Head?
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.
Where can you use Koala Perfect Head Maxi?
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.
What are the age ranges for using Koala Perfect Head and Koala Perfect Head Maxi?
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.
What is Koala Perfect Head made of?
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.
Can I wash the memory foam? How many degrees should I wash the pillowcases at?
!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.
How to maximise the effectiveness of Koala Perfect Head pillows?
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.
