The ErgoPillow's™ ergonomic shape provides great neck and head support for your infant and can help prevent or correct plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome). And isn't it adorable, too!? Though the medical benefits of using the pillow are our priority, we also know that cute, modern colors and patterns go hand in hand with how we want to present our babies. We hope that the ErgoPillow™ will find a favorite spot in your nursery.
How can the ErgoPillow™ help with my baby's flat spot?
This supportive infant pillow helps release pressure from your baby's skull when lying on his or her back. The ErgoPillow's™ center is softly padded, and the neck area is intentionally designed narrow to fit your baby ergonomically (unlike most travel neck pillows that push your baby's head forward toward the chest). Also, babies often have a preferred side that they lie on. This can over time lead to deformation. The sides of the ErgoPillow™ are very soft yet still provide side support by cradling your baby's skull, helping to prevent flat spots from forming.
Up to what age will the ErgoPillow™ fit my child?
The pillow is designed to fit most babies up to 12 months. However, its ability to help shape your baby's developing head will start to taper off around 7-8 months. By 9 months your baby's skull will have become too firm for shaping by this passive means alone. The pillow will, however, continue to protect your baby's flat spot from becoming more pronounced while being treated with other methods. Regardless of what stage of growth your baby is in, you should always consult your pediatrician with your concerns.
Where and when can I use the ErgoPillow™?
It is important for parents to remember that the ErgoPillow™ is not intended for unsupervised use! It is not designed to be used during sleep. Due to the risk of SIDS, the American Academy of Pediatrics goes so far as to dissuade parents from allowing any loose objects within the baby's sleep environment.

The ErgoPillow™ is designed to help you in both positioning your child and preventing him or her from favoring one side. The pillow works great during wake time, wherever your baby may be. It is perfect for car seats, baby swings and under the baby gym. Also, it is a must on long flights. It is important to keep constant vigil on your babies habits when a flat spot exists. The ErgoPillow™ takes a lot of the work out of this maintenance. And isn't it cute too!?
