    My older 2 were not given a pillow until they were around 2yrs old and they never had flat heads and I will be sticking to that with DS2 no matter what it just isn't worth the risk IMO. Plus all the babies I know that have ever had flat spots usually correct themselves when they start rolling over.

    The last little one I cared for was in the NICU and they had her on a gel pillow. If it was a SIDS risk they wouldn't be using it in the NICU. I have the Mije Baby Head Rest. It is not a "pillow" as such and does not pose any SIDS risk. Works really well to prevent flat head, and helps to correct an already flat head.

    I don't see why out of all the other posts mine was the one singled out, I was just stating my opinion on the subject and what I know from what I had been told. The good thing about living in this time is that everyone is entitled to their opinion and the great thing about public forums on the internet is that everyone can voice their opinion, and not using a pillow is mine however if a Dr suggested it then I would probably use one but using one just to prevent a flat head then no sorry I feel it isn't worth the risk.

    thanks for the input....i sourced a mimos pillow in melbourne. Acutally my family chiropractor, Dr Gillian Nixon, sourced one and is now going to stock them. Vital Spines in East Ivanhoe 94997005 www.vitalspines.com.au if anyone else in melbourne wants one.
    WE have already had great changes with DD with her chiropractic care but want to do more while she is sleeping etc. Thanks for all the input bub hubbers! xx
