Ellie Ears pillow is NOT a medical device. Please consult with your qualified medical professional with your specific questions.

Always use under the direct supervision of a responsible caregiver

Ellie Ears replace the rolled towels or blankets often recommended for positional support, which slip and unravel. They do NOT attach to any restraint mechanisms or go behind the baby's back, where restraint mechanisms are placed.

The thin fabric that connects the pillows rest in the empty space behind baby's neck, with pillows resting on either side of baby's head. If positioned properly the pillow continues to allow for intentional range of motion, and will not push baby's head forward, or chin to chest.
