Fillings

The filling is what counts

The filling is perhaps the most important component of our pillows - it determines how well a pillow is suited for the respective purpose, but also how breathable it is, the durability, price and much more. As a genuine specialist for breastfeeding pillows, we offer you the choice of 4 different fillings. Each filling we offer has its special advantages and areas of application, but also certain disadvantages to some extent which we do not want to conceal. Our favourite is the Original EPS micro-bead (bead diameter 0.5-1.5 mm), which we would like to recommend to midwives for equipping their practices and instruction rooms, as well as to pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.

1. EPS-Beads

In our opinion, there is nothing better for filling pillows used during pregnancy and breastfeeding! It is also the top-selling and optimum filling material for good reasons. It is durable, hygienic, anti-allergic and inexpensive. Excellent heat and moisture transport as well as its special lightness and the unequalled adaptability and pressure distribution make it the ideal aide. We offer EPS beads in three different qualities depending on need and application:

1a. EPS Micro-Beads (ø 0,5 - 1,5 mm)

EPS micro beads

Noiseless & as fine as sand

High durability

The finest filling 0.5 - 1.5 mm is cuddly like sand, but nevertheless as light as a feather. Ideal for daily use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Especially pregnant woman love this particularly noiseless filling.

1b. EPS Rehab-Beads (ø 01,5 - 2,5 mm)

EPS rehab beads

High durability

Good breathability

This robust filling with a diameter of 1.5 - 2.5 mm is excellently adaptable, however, it is distinctly heavier and somewhat coarser than the original micro-beads. Due to the larger gaps, the breathing characteristics are improved, e.g. beneficial for long-term patients. Another problem is that the heavier filling slowly loses its volume when subjected to heavier use, e.g. during change of position.

1c. EPS Standard Beads (ø 01,5 - 2,5 mm)

EPS standard beads

Inexpensive

Good adaptability

The bead size is similar to rehab-beads, however, somewhat lighter. Ideal for practice sales to occasional users and families with a smaller budget. Outstanding price-quality ratio for mothers who use their pillows during pregnancy and as a breastfeeding pillow.

Especially high-quality hollow fibres for professional long-term use. The patented high-tech fibres have a down-like, soft feel and are absolutely noise-free.

3. Spelt

Spelt

Highest possible breathability

Good heat transport

The pure natural filling is cleaned several times and heat treated. A somewhat higher maintenance cost and a shorter lifetime of the filling has to be taken into account, in order to enjoy a real natural bedding material. Also, this filling is not always recommendable for allergy patients. Special advantages are, however, even better breathability and moisture absorption. The higher weight of the spelt pillow can also be an advantage in many bedding applications.
