REFLUX RELIEF: The Snuggle Pod may assist in relieving GERD (reflux). The Snuggle Pod was designed to be flexible and respond to you and your baby's needs. Post-feeding, just adjust the position of the beans to allow your bub to sit with his or her head in a more elevated position. By keeping your little one's head elevated, the pod has been reported to significantly reduce the symptoms of infant reflux and make sure that your little one has the kind of restful and healthful feeding experience that allows him or her to grow and flourish.
FLATHEAD SYMPTOMS: The soft seat may assist in helping to prevent flathead. Chibebe Snuggle Pods have been reported by those who care for babies, to make a significant difference in preventing the development of flathead. By nestling an infant on a flexible surface that also keeps pressure off the head by keeping it slightly elevated, Chibebe Snuggle Pods are one of the best ways to avoid or reduce the condition. Chibebe's bean bag-design allows the Snuggle Pod to respond to a child's form, instead of forcing the child to adjust to the pod itself. Chibebe Snuggle Pods are really one of the best ways to keep your bub healthy and feeling happy!
LARYNGOMALACIA: Infants with laryngomalacia will often present with inspiratory stridor, a sort of wheezing or high-pitched squeak that occurs during breathing. The Chibebe Snuggle Pod has been reported to significantly alleviate reflux and make a huge difference to a child with laryngomalacia. We are also longtime supporters with the organization Coping With Laryngomalacia in its efforts to improve the lives and conditions of children suffering from this condition.
As you can see, the ultimate in comfort is just a bonus!

The Chibebe Snuggle Pod has been designed to give your baby the most restful, safe & comfortable experience possible. Filling the Pod is always at the discretion of the carer, but we recommend filling with approx. 65lt of beans (this is about 2/3 of a 100lt bag).
The Pod is designed for Bub to be able to take in their surroundings and be a part of your daily activities with you. Overfilling the Snuggle Pod will make the surface too flat, and Bub will be staring at the ceiling, not at you or their surroundings. Ceilings are boring, even cool ones with posters of Peppa Pig and stuck on them get a little too much after a while.
Make sure the seat is inclined, so Bub is sitting upright, with their head resting back on the pod. Imagine yourself, sitting in an adult beanbag. If it is too full, like a pouffe, you can't fully settle in it, and you would roll off, right? But if it were not so full, you are all nestled in it, the base is flat on the floor so you can't roll out of it, or get off it unless someone helps you out. It's the same idea with the Snuggle Pod.
Filling it so that Bub can sit in it, not on it, means they can't get out of it without your help; they can't roll it; and they get to chill out and look around and even watch Peppa Pig on TV (not the ceiling!).
But the most important reason you want to sit them upright in their Pod is because the pod is intended to help relieve reflux (GERD) and prevent flat head or your precious little one.
So, as you can see, we're super serious about what we do, but we're kinda cool in how we do it!
Bub couldn't live without this beanbag to stop his reflux. I can't believe i never knew about it before. Fantastic!
I love this beanbag. My DD wouldn't sleep in her cot, and my sweet MIL came to my rescue, and said she had bought one of these for her friends daughter once. It is simply the best solution when you have a crying baby who won't sleep anywhere but in your own arms. I was tired. i was so tired. I couldn't function and was moody most of the time. I was sleeping while holding my daughter, which wasn't ideal, but i had no choice. But now, l am able to get her drowsy in her snuggle pod, and then pop her into her cot to sleep as advised by Chibebe, but i can do things now, thanks to Chibebe helping to get her drowsy enough to sleep in her cot. I also get to have a nap myself, sometimes! It has been nothing short of a game changer for me, and l am back to my old self and my daughter is happy in her snuggle pod, and that makes me a happy Mumma. I read somewhere that every baby should have a chibebe snuggle pod, and they're right. It's the very best thing l have ever received, and not only for babies, but also parents (especially parents!) This literally saved me from sleep deprivation and possibly even hating motherhood, which would have been the worst. So thankyou to my MIL, and a HUGE thankyou to chibebe!
