Frequently asked questions on this product
Can I use Koala Cuddle Band from birth?
For sure! Koala Cuddle Band can be used from day one.
What is Koala Cuddle Band’s maximum weight limit?
Koala Cuddle Band can carry a maximum weight of 9kg, meaning you can use it throughout the first year of your baby’s life.
Can I use the baby carrier during summer months?
Babywearing in hot weather is entirely up to you. However, generally speaking there’s no problem; the carrier provides comfort and will keep both you and your baby cool. 🙂
During summer we recommend:
• Wearing natural fabrics, that goes for both you and your baby, who can even wear just a nappy if it’s very hot.
• Taking breaks if you’re sweating a lot.
• Changing and resuming after a short break if clothing becomes wet.
• Placing one of our 30x30 Koala Soft Touch muslin cloths between your baby’s face and your chest, it will help absorb any sweat and you’ll both feel less hot and sticky. Always make sure that your baby’s airways are clear.
Is Koala Cuddle Band rigid or stretchy?
Koala Cuddle Band is an elastic strip with a reinforced back support, recommended during the first year of your baby's life!
How do I wash Koala Cuddle Band?
You can wash your Koala Cuddle Band in the washing machine at 30°C with similar coloured fabrics. Koala Babycare recommends that you do not bleach, do not iron, do not dry clean or do not tumble dry your carrier band.
It's my first carrier wrap, will I struggle to put it on?
No – not all, it’s super easy. At the top of this page, you’ll find a video tutorial guide with all the instructions for using your baby carrier correctly.
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.
