Reflux Relief: The special shape of the bean bag has been reported by parents to help relieve 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, carers report that the pod significantly reduces the symptoms of infant reflux, ensuring 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, moldable seat may help 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 designed 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.
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 is endorsed by USA based Coping with Laryngomalacia™, for significantly alleviating reflux and make a huge difference to a child with laryngomalacia. Coping With Laryngomalacia™ aims to improve the lives and conditions of children suffering from this condition.
As you can see, the ultimate in comfort is just a bonus!
How Much To Fill The Pod?
About 10,265 beans, to be exact! But to save time counting, we recommend filling with approx. 65lt of beans (this is about 2/3 of a 100lt bag). 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.
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 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 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 flathead for your precious little one.
Babies love the Podding Experience with Chibebe®, and we know you will too!
