Monday April 4th is Plagiocephaly Awareness Day! and Babymoov have been working with a French Paediatrician Dr Maidenberg to launch a few products onto the market designed to protect your precious newborn from becoming one of the 47% of babies between seven and twelve weeks who suffer from this condition.
Positional plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome) is diagnosed when a baby’s head is flattened at the back or side. It is caused by pressure on the soft skull bones, which have not yet fused, and become moulded into a different shape. This can occur when an infant spends excessive periods of time lying or resting in the same position on their backs; in pushchairs, car seats, bouncers and cribs.We have been sent out, a very badly named in my opinion, product - The Lovenest - but please don't let that put you off. The product is an
innovative, ergonomic design, featuring a special incline, ensure pressure is evenly distributed across the infants head, thereby helping maintain the natural curvature of the skull. It also works to ensure good ventilation during sleep and is made from soft, breathable fabrics. Suitable from birth and for use in pushchairs, bouncers, cots and cribs, the Lovenest is available in a range of colours (Blue, Smokey & White) and is suitable from birth to 4 months, and 4m +
Now I have to say when I took it round to my daughter I fully expected it to end up as a arm band or a hat for one of the twins and I really did not think it would stay in the pram but surprisingly enough it has. The pillow itself is soft and lovely to the touch. The item comes complete, no separate cover, but washes well, the only down side is it cannot be tumble dried. Spud says it is nice and comfy and she likes it. My daughter combines this with some tummy time which can help to prevent flat head syndrome as well.
We were sent this product in return for sharing this post.
