Dee from Upsi Daisy sent me their Snuggle Pod to try out with my Mika-moo, who was 9 months old at the time I received the Snuggle Pod. Mika is, what they call, a late bloomer. At (now almost 10 months) 9 months old, he was sitting up, totally unsupported but making NO effort whatsoever at crawling. He was quite happy to sit, be carried or spend 20 minutes in his Tigger bouncy-thing. But not crawling. So, in my opinion, the perfect stage of babyhood for a product such as the Snuggle Pod.
At first sight of the Snuggle Pod, I wasn’t that he would be happy to sit still in it, that he would get irritated and want OUT. One morning, I needed to be up early and at work by 7am, which meant that I would either need to have the stealth of a triple-black-belt-ninja, so as to not wake him up whilst showering and getting ready for work, or risk having him wake up and then fashion safe places for him to sit on the bathroom floor while I went about my
business morning routine. As Murphy would have it, as I attempted a silent sneak past his bedroom door to the bathroom, he must have heard the tiny squeak of a floor board and he was up. So I grabbed him, and the Snuggle Pod, and headed into the bathroom. I strapped him in (as shown in the picture above) and popped a bath toy into his little paws. He was comfortable, relaxed and didn’t complain once while I showered and got myself dressed and ready for work. Awesome!

Our Snuggle pods are just perfect for baby to safely recline in and can be used in indoors or out with a protective waterproof bottom! The pod is suitable for newborns and babies who suffer from reflux and will last up to about 8 years old! Snuggle pods are available in durable denim with various funky fresh coordinating fabrics and an inter changeable snugly fleece tops with secure straps to keep baby safe. Pods are filled with micro beads and have 4 pockets to pop dummies and other bits and pieces in.
Separate fleece tops can be bought without the secure straps for 1-year-old tots and up to use on the snuggle pods.
Should you prefer a Snuggle pod made out of an alternative fabric to the denim, please advise and we’ll be happy to manufacture one in your very own choice of fabric.
I like the fact that we could buy a fleece top without the straps to use it as a “bean bag” as the boys get bigger, as well as the fact that the covers are removable and washable.
Great idea and product! For more information and pricing, please contact Dee at firstname.lastname@example.org, 011 658 0431 or 084 708 6482
