We are delighted to be reviewing the Lovenest from Babymoov and in turn helping to raise awareness of World Plagiocephaly Awareness Day.
Babymoov is supporting World Plagiocephaly Awareness Day on April 4th to highlight the little known condition that affects half of all babies under the age of one.
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.
Littlest View from a Daddy has been trying out the Lovenest from Babymoov this week. At just 9 days old, she’s all about laying down and looking cute so it’s been perfect for us. We’ve mainly used the Lovenest when changing nappies and enjoying walks with the pram. It’s been a welcome addition as it allows for a slight lift away from the flat surface with the comfort of suitable cushion. As the Loveliest is washable at 30 degrees it makes it really practical too! We give a thumbs up to the Lovenest not only because of its practicality but also because of its super cute appeal!
What is Plagiocephaly?
Plagiocephaly affects as many as 47% of babies between 7 and 12 weeks. Preventative treatments recommended by health practitioners focus on repositioning baby’s head as much as possible, to vary the pressure spots on the skull. All too often though, positional plagiocephaly is diagnosed too late, leaving parents to seek out often costly alternatives.
Committed to helping prevent flat head syndrome, Babymoov has worked with a French paediatrician – Dr Maidenberg – to create an affordable, simple solution: the Lovenest (£14.99 RRP). The 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 4m.
Babymoov is also responsible for the Cosydream (£29.99 RRP) – a specially designed sleep positioner, developed by experts to deliver the ideal anatomical sleep position for newborn babies. The Cosydream provides the correct support and posture, with a specially shaped headrest to reduce the risk of Plagiocephaly, during those precious early months, ensuring a safe, comfortable and peaceful night’s sleep. The Cosydream is available in two colours and is suitable from birth to 6m.
