We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?

Emily: This memory foam pillow is nice soft and has a very cute koala head shape. This pillow is very helpful for me when i change my babies nappy just after feed. This pillow is actually designed for babies have a misshaped head or some babies choosing to sleep always on the same side. My little ones head is already good shaped. But my baby is usually sick after feeding and it under his head. It has a spare pillow case and easy to change and use one in washing.

Katie: The pillow is lovely quality it’s really soft and a good design to help babies head. You can put the baby down without worrying they will end up with a flatter head. It has a removable washable cover which is great as we all know how babies can spit up! And it comes with a spare cover which is amazing so you can put another straight on when one needs washing.

Safa: The pillow is great of your baby constantly turns head to one side , my current baby does. I found it helpful as they were less likely to tie to left which he is prone to doing. Works really well in different settings, I’m cot and bouncer and when on floor on mat. Means I didn’t have to constantly keep turning baby’s head.

Would you recommend this to other parents?

Phylis: Koala Perfect Head is well designed and easy to use, my babies feel comfortable using it for both overnight sleep and day time naps. It is compact making it easy for me to move it about and use whenever it is needed. My babies seem to like the slight elevation and appear more comfortable than when laid on a completely flat surface. Koala Perfect Head is small enough not to pose a huge risk to my babies however while babies are still very young I only use it when I am within close proximity of sleeping babies. So far, there has never been any cause for concern.

Amy: I would recommend this to mums that say there baby needs support or help with baby that sleeps one sided. It is a great size and is easy to move around from cot, playmat to pram. It’s great for extra comfort in the car seat for longer journeys. It’s is also a really cute design and comes in different colours.

Safa: The product feels luxurious, the material is soft and foam is clearly good quality. I found it easy to transport in babies bag to when we went to visit parents for the weekend. Didn’t take up much room at all. The cover is washable and easy to remove and put back without any faff or fiddling. Also it came with spare cover.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Katie: If you were choosing a pillow I would recommend it. It’s so soft I would be happy to sleep on it myself! Great shape, removable cover that can be washed. If the category was best pillow I would definitely say a winner however the category is best product for a newborn and I think there are products out there which are way more useful that would be more deserving.

Safa: I think for the purpose for which it was designed this product is useful and yes I would choose it to win. As well as being easy to use and practical it’s also very comfortable and feels luxurious. The foam feels of great quality. I like the fact that I could use it in the cot, bouncer and floor mat.

Jodi: I’m not sure there’s anything they could do differently. It would be great if it fit in the swing but it’s already very small and flat so I doubt they can change it to help that. Same goes for safe sleep, maybe a way of allowing parents to leave it in the crib safely overnight but I’m not sure what the answer would be.

Jodi: I would edit the phrasing on the packaging. It reads as though it has been translated into English, so would recommend getting an English speaker to review the way it reads. The packaging also says "two pillow included", however there was only one actual pillow but two pillow cases. I believe the intent was to advertise there being an extra pillow case (cover) but it reads as though you might expect two actual pillow
