About this product
The Clevamama™ ClevaFoam™ Baby Pillow is the only pillow that has been scientifically proven, by world renowned university Trinity College Dublin, to protect the round shape of your baby’s soft head and helps reduce the effects of Flat Head Syndrome (Plagiocephaly). This comfortable and luxurious pillow has the added benefit of Airflow™ which will draw away moisture and increase airflow for the ultimate “Snug-ability”.
Specifically engineered for babies, the study found that ClevaFoam™ reduced the pressure on baby's head by 50%, while providing 80% more support. The tests also found that the pillow‟s profile is sufficiently low and the material is not too stiff, the babys head will be allowed to rest in a natural position that does not restrict the airways.
The pillow should remain in a flat position and should no longer be used once your infant can move or roll around in the cot.
What is Plagiocephaly (Flat Head Syndrome)?
Deformational Plagiocephaly, the medical condition more commonly known as ‘Flat Head Syndrome’, which affects many infants, especially since the widespread introduction of recommendations to place sleeping babies on their backs in order to prevent cot death.
Torticollis can also lead to the Flat Head Syndrome due the nature of the condition which is a tight or shortened muscle in one side of your baby’s neck causing the head to tilt or turn to one side, resulting in the infant resting its head in the same position.
If you have any concerns about Plagiocephaly, seek advice from your GP or Health Nurse.
