Mimos Tummy Time Pillow & Side Pillow

  • Proven effective for prevention and treatment of plagiocephaly
  • Recommended by doctors, orthopedists, and physiotherapists
  • Worldwide Class 1 medical device

The Mimos® Tummy Time Pillow and Side Sleeping Pillow is a multifunctional adjustable pillow designed for Tummy Time and side sleeping. It helps prevent and correct plagiocephaly, promotes muscle and sensory development, and can be used from the first weeks of life.

Comes with a storage bag and an instruction manual.

The Mimos Pillow is designed with a unique "torus" structure, consisting of 32 layers of 3D mesh fabric. This patented construction ensures optimal air circulation, allowing your baby to breathe safely and comfortably. It is classified as a Class 1 medical device with various certificates and studies supporting its effectiveness and safety:

The Mimos Tummy Time Pillow

The Mimos® Tummy Time Pillow positions the baby in an ergonomic posture to practice Tummy Time. This position is beneficial for preventing and correcting a flat head. It also promotes the baby's muscle and sensory skills.

The Mimos Side Pillow

Relieving pressure on the affected area of the skull and applying additional pressure for at least 30 minutes per day on the non-flattened part is crucial for correcting a flat head. This is why physiotherapists integrate lateral position exercises combined with a side pillow into the treatment plan for this condition.

How it works

The Mimos® Pillow is ideal for both Tummy Time and side position. This pillow is a safe, supportive, and medically classified tool for practicing Tummy Time and the side position. Both positions not only promote overall baby development but also aid in the prevention and treatment of a flat head (plagiocephaly).

What is Plagiocephaly?

Plagiocephaly is the most common craniofacial condition in babies. It's characterized by an asymmetrical shape of the skull, where one part of the head is flattened or shifted to one side. Plagiocephaly can have various causes, such as a baby's preference for a particular sleeping position or certain physical factors.

How Mimos helps

In our mission to support parents and babies in preventing and treating baby head flattening, we have received these before and after photos. We work hard every day to raise awareness among parents about preventive measures and treatment options for this common issue. We share success stories to inspire others and encourage action. With dedication and passion, we continue to guide and inform families about prevention and treatment.

Experts about Mimos

As a pediatric osteopath, I highly recommend the Mimos pillow for babies with plagiocephaly or a flat head. In just a few weeks, this pillow can make a significant difference. It's a product we recommend to parents of babies with a flat head on a daily basis, and we've even mentioned it in our book, Cherished Baby and Child.

Frank Kelleher | Pediatric Osteopath

As an experienced pediatrician, I recommend the Mimos pillow for children with plagiocephaly. It reduces pressure on the skull and reportedly improves skull shape more quickly than without intervention. Since the NHS currently cannot support the purchase of expensive helmets, I prefer to recommend this affordable product.

Dr. G. R. Lawson | Consultant Pediatrics

The Mimos pillow is well-designed. It reduces pressure on the back and sides of the baby's head, and the shape of the pillow helps maintain the baby's neck in a nice position. Additionally, it's made of breathable material, comfortable for the baby and reassuring for the parents.

The Mimos pillow is a convenient, simple, and lightweight tool that parents can use and integrate into their sleep routine. It aids in the natural rounding of the baby's head and contributes to resolving a flat back of the head as quickly as possible.

Carly Aspden | Physiotherapist & Clinical Director

I highly recommend the Mimos pillow for use, for instance, in a stroller or crib to prevent and improve the flattening of the delicate bone structure of the skull.

Avni Trivedi | Pediatric Osteopath

We have analyzed a total of 15 different pillow brands on the market, and only the MIMOS® brand pillow appears to be both effective and safe in our assessment.

Dr. Josep Maria I Costa | Head of Neurosurgery, Hospital Sant Joan de Déu

We are the leading clinic for manual therapy for plagiocephaly/brachycephaly in Herts. We have been recommending Mimos products for quite some time! We use the Craniometer and straps to assess, measure, and monitor improvement in plagiocephaly. We find the combination of the Craniometer and straps absolutely fantastic and easy to use.

Alex Bidlake-Corser | Clinical Director & Osteopath, The Penn Clinic

I have completed my postgraduate training in specialized osteopathic treatment of children. I regularly see and treat babies with plagiocephaly at my clinic in Reigate. I often recommend adding the pillow to the treatment to achieve the best results. The craniometer is a great tool for objectively measuring progress during treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the Mimos Tummy Time pillow?

The Mimos Tummy Time Pillow is adaptable to your baby's developmental stage.

1. When your baby is just starting tummy time, you can stack the two pillows together for full support. This elevates your baby to a higher, ergonomic position and supports the legs, making it easier for your baby to practice tummy time.

2. As your baby progresses with tummy time and becomes stronger, they will need less support. In this case, use only the larger pillow. This provides support to your baby's knees and upper body.

3. In the final stage, before your baby can independently do tummy time, use only the small pillow to support the upper body. By gradually reducing support, you are training your baby to practice tummy time independently and strengthen their muscles.

Always use the pillow under supervision and never leave your baby unattended during tummy time.

How do I use the Mimos Side Pillow?

For correcting severe skull deformities, it's important to relieve pressure on the flat side of the head and apply extra pressure to the non-flat area for at least 30 minutes per day. Physiotherapists often use side exercises as part of the treatment plan for skull deformities. This position is significant for babies with severe skull deformities.

Using the Mimos Side Pillow can sometimes be challenging because the baby can easily roll onto their stomach. The Mimos Side Pillow helps the baby to remain in this position through back and front support. Side is typically recommended until the baby can roll over on their own; the average age for babies to roll over is between 3-9 months.

Instructions for use:
Adjust to the correct size: The Velcro makes it easy to adjust the pillow to the length and size of your baby.
Use during playtime: Use the pillow during playtime in the baby gym. Place the baby on the non-flat side of the head and encourage play with some toys.

With these instructions, you can effectively use the Mimos Side Pillow to help correct your baby's skull deformities. Always use the pillow under supervision and never leave your baby alone in the side pillow.

Why are Mimos Pillows more expensive than other pillows?

The Mimos Pillow stands out due to its special 32-layer 3D mesh fabric, which ensures continuous air circulation and breathability, making the pillow 100% safe for your baby. This unique material and handmade production in Barcelona, Spain, guarantee the highest quality. The Mimos Pillow is the only pillow in the world recognized as a Class 1 medical device and CE certified, made possible by our collaboration with pediatricians and physiotherapists worldwide.

Are Mimos Pillows hypoallergenic?

Yes, Mimos Pillows are hypoallergenic. They are made from high-quality materials carefully selected to minimize allergic reactions. The 3D air mesh material used in the construction of the pillow is breathable and promotes good air circulation, helping to dissipate heat and moisture. This helps create a comfortable and healthy sleep environment for the baby while reducing the risk of allergic reactions.

However, it is important to note that every baby is unique and may have individual sensitivities. If your baby has known allergies or sensitive skin, it is always advisable to consult a healthcare provider or allergist before using a Mimos Pillow to ensure that the pillow is suitable for the specific situation.

How long does a Mimos pillow last?

Generally, it is recommended to regularly inspect the Mimos pillow for signs of wear and damage. While there is no fixed expiration date for a Mimos pillow, it is important to replace the pillow if you notice it starting to lose its shape, if there are tears or damages, or if the pillow no longer provides the desired support.

The durability of the pillow can also be influenced by following the proper maintenance instructions.

Additionally, it is important to note that the Mimos pillow should not be passed on to another baby or child. The pillow is specifically designed to support the shape of an individual baby and can adapt to that specific shape. Passing the pillow to another child can result in a loss of optimal support and reduce its effectiveness.

To ensure safety and the best results, we recommend purchasing a new Mimos pillow for each baby or child. This way, you can be sure that the pillow provides the right support.
