The Poddle Pod is a clever weight activated snuggle nest, designed to give your baby the sensation of being cradled in your arms which helps settle them to sleep. You can then use your free arms to take care of yourself, tackle the household chores, or maybe spend quality time with your other children. They are especially handy to take with you when visiting friends and family and because the Pod smells like home, it helps to settle your little one wherever you are. There are two size variations available.
The Poddle Pod has a clever weight activated hammock centre. When you place your baby in the Pod, their weight makes the sides pull in to give them a gentle snuggle, giving you an extra pair of arms whilst your little one naps securely. The unique design makes the Poddle Pod especially good for helping to soothe babies that suffer from reflux and also helps to prevent flat head syndrome.
The Poddle Pod was designed around a 4 month old baby, who then went on to use his Poddle Pod until he was 8 months old. The Poddle Pod is ideally used from birth until around 6 months old. As every baby varies in size and development, 6 months is a rough guide. The Toddle Pod is a wider and longer version of the smaller Poddle Pod and is designed to be used with babies from 6 months onwards. If your baby wears 3-6 month clothing and are confused to which Pod to purchase, we would recommend purchasing the Toddle Pod to ensure you get optimum use.
The Poddle Pod measures approximately 24 inches long by 16 inches wide (Inner Pod 14 inches by 6 inches)
The Toddle Pod measures approximately 30 inches long by 19 inches wide (Inner Pod 19 inches by 7 inches)
This is a difficult question to answer because every baby varies in size and development. As a guide for newborn babies, they should be positioned in the centre of the Pod on their back and their full profile should be visible from the side. As they grow their head will be supported at one end, whilst their legs drape over the other end (Just like they are when they are cradled in your arms)

The safe sleep guidelines set by the Lullaby Trust advise pillows/cushions/sleep positioners & bumpers in cots/cribs are not recommended for overnight sleeping, so we advise our customers to follow these guidelines.
