Our pediatrician took the company line and would recommend using the pillow simply, because of the suffocation risk factor that goes a long with babies and pillows. However, if you are playing on a play mat with your baby for hours a day and are worried about him getting a flat spot (or maybe already has one and you're trying to avoid getting a helmet! - like us) then you don't want your babe on the back of his head the whole time. The catch of course, is your baby needs to play and learn to roll, etc... So, this is a great option - we love our Babymoon Pillow! I think it's worked great. Sometimes he's stays in it, sometimes he squirms his way out of it, but I think it's helped his head shape tremendously. After we had begun using it, I told our pediatrician and she didn't scold us or anything, and in fact thought his head shape had improved. We only used it at night in the earlier stages, when he wasn't turning or rolling in his sleep. We still use it during the day if he's put on his back to play. Now he easily rolls out of it when he feels like it, which is fine.
