A mustard seed pillow is a small-sized pillow for newborn babies. It is filled with natural mustard seeds and sealed in a cloth pillow cover to keep under a newborn’s head for support.

A mustard seed pillow provides the ideal support to the baby’s head and distributes even pressure around the head, neck, & shoulders to prevent Flat-head Syndrome in babies. Mustard is also believed to give warmth to the baby and helps regulate blood circulation, reduce ear infections, calm colic, and protect the baby from cold.

A newborn baby’s head is soft & tender. Its shape can change in the first few months from birth. A mustard seed pillow offers the right support to change the shape of the baby’s head to look rounder.

When should you use a Mustard Seed Pillow? 
It is best to use the Mustard Seed Pillow right after the birth for the baby till 6 or 9 months. However, this pillow can be further passed on to another baby and used for several years.

Is it washable?
Yes, the pillow is suitable for both machine and hand-wash. Just remove the outer pillow cover, unzip the inner cover and remove the mustard seeds. Then wash both the outer & the inner covers for the best hygiene.
