This was a shower gift from a friend who already had kids and knew what we really needed. We love the snuggle pod because the baby is so happy in it and it’s really helped us cope with being new parents. Its light enough I can grab it with a spare finger and toss it wherever I need it while carrying the baby, blankets, whatever else I have. At the beginning, our baby had reflux and needed to be upright most of the time so it was a godsend to be able to angle her up in that so she was comfortable and not crying while giving my arms a break. It often sits in the corner of the bathroom where she happily kicks and watches me get ready in the morning or take a shower. I can prop her up to watch me in the kitchen and know she is safe off the cold hardwood floor and won’t get stepped on by the dog. Something about it really is comforting to her and it’s nice to have somewhere for her to happily play outside of my arms. The design is nice and fits into our home without looking too preschoolish and it is very easy to clean. Now that she is a bit older and more wiggly, the strap is crucial to keeping her from inching off. It will be nice to swap over to the toddler cover when she is older and can have her own special bean bag chair.
We received the Chibebe Slumber Pod as a gift for our second son and it is absolutely brilliant. Our little boy is 5 weeks old and fits snug in it....and the harness is great too keeping him safe and sound...will be especially useful as he gets a little bigger and more active! And thats the great thing....along with how funky it is, the pod will be useful for a long time as he grows bigger. His big brother, who is two, also loves to hang out in it while he watches TV. A perfect solution for bubby to have a rest and relax with the rest of the family. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Our little miss 8 month old loves her Chibebe Slumber Pod as it is on her level and she can crawl into it and put herself on it when ever she needs to. We love the Chibebe as it can be moved to anywhere in the house for her to rest in supervised and in comfort. It is easy to transport so when visiting friends it goes into the car with us, so she always has her own place to rest. The quality is fantastic, designs are beautiful and diverse I believe everyone will find a design they like in the range. With the Toddler seat also available I know our little one will get to enjoy her Chibebe for many years to come. Easy to fill, and with the safety features on the zips it means little fingers can not get to the beans inside making it highly unlikely you will get a snow storm in your lounge room. Best thing we have found is on restless nights we have been able to get comfy on the floor and put the Chibebe beside us, and she will chill out in it while we rest beside her keeping her happy. Due to the height of the pod, we can easily let her hold our hand to feel our touch, while we are able to be reasonably comfortable as well. The pod itself is so comfy I have caught hubby using it as a pillow during their play times :)
Our 3 week old princess, Emiliana, chilling in the Robopod Snuggle Pod, next to her three year old big sister, Tajah, on her bean bag.
We receieved a Snuggle Pod on Monday, thanks to an LM support group, and my little girl loves it. She is all smiles. Thankyou so much.
After a long day out on a cold winter's day, little Evann's switched from Cranky Grump to Cheeky Cheerful as soon as he arrived home to the comfort of his Pod. Been like that since birth, and still the same at 6 months old. So why is the Chibebe Snuggle Pod the best baby bean bag ever? I think the picture sums it all up.
Hello fantastic Chibebe Team! Here are some pics of my little bebe enjoying time in her Chibebe Snuggle Pod. She thinks it's the best baby beanbag ever because she can sit in it securely while her big brother introduces her to Charlie and Lola and may other fantastic toys! They can chat and laugh while she is sitting safely harnessed in. That way, she can giggle as much as she likes without sliding off her beanbag. Mama loves it because it has a little bag that holds all the beans inside safely. Brilliant planning! Love the safety! Love the comfort! I love that she'll be using it for years to come! Oh, and another reason we love Chibebe....the seat comes off for a wash! Beautiful! Thanks, Chibebe Team!
My daughter Kaylie loves her Snuggle Pod it also helped her with reflux when she was a newborn.
Got our delivery today!! Love it and Maddie loves it too. All she needs now is a Wii remote to play Mariocart all day!!!
Newborn Jakob using his brand new Chibebe baby beanbag! It's so secure and comfy he is so restful in the spot!!
Here is Sophie (about 2 months in this pic). She loves her snuggle pod so much she is cheering and waving her arms in the air!!
Our Chibebe Snuggle Pod is the best thing ever coz I recently fractured my spine and, spending weeks in hospital and having a 5month old, I had no idea how I was ever going to survive. Between his awesome dad looking after him and days spent in hospital on my bed with me, and in his pod watching T.V, we survived. Still battling through my pain but our pod has been our life saver. Before this we travelled lots and our pod came EVERYWHERE with us. From picnics in parks to tables in McDonalds our son sits in his where ever we go! I have hundreds of photos of him in it from the day he was born.
Hey guys! Just had a photoshoot of a couple of kids in your Pods, and they loved them!
The little boy just loved chilling out on it, and the little girl......well, I just wanted to let you know that you are right.....babies and kids can't lie when it comes to these things, and it was obvious that they just love your pods!
My baby girl Vivienne is loving her Chibebe beanbag & rocker so much we're giving one to her cousin once he/she is born! Thanks Chibebe for creating such a great product.
I love hanging out with my fur brother in my Chibebe Snuggle Pod. It's just so comfy and gives me a great view of Mummy while she eats her lunch (with two hands thanks to Chibebe - what a lucky Mummy!).
Chibebe is the best baby bean bag ever because it is so helpful, my 3 week old Ava loves it and mummy can get some things done! Took a few days to finally get a photo as every time I put her in it for a photo she would want to sleep! (editors note: the Snuggle Pod is not for sleeping in. If Bub gets tired in their Pod, simply transfer them to their cot!).
Samuel (and Mum, Amanda)
My name is Samuel - born 30/08/2014. My lovely Aunty and Uncle bought me a snuggle pod and I’ve loved it from the very day I came home from hospital. It helped my Mum to get me to settle and also manage a shower in those early days.Now I like to rest in it when things get a little much and I need to chill. :) (editors note: we love how the little man is already flexing his baby muscles in his Pod!)
Just wanted to email and say we love the snuggle pod!
We knew we had to get one when we where out shopping for a new car seat for Alexander and the shop also sold your snuggle pods, we put Alexander in it while we chose the car seat, he was so happy in it I had to find out more!
I came home and did some research and ordered one off your website.
I now wish we got one sooner! Alexander is so happy to chill out, talk and play with his toes while being able to see he world around him so I am happily cook dinner, have a shower and do house work and I know he will be happy.
Thank you for creating such a awesome bean bag!
Ps: love the tote bag you sent us too!
Here's a photo of Alexander, 5 months and loving it!
We got a couple of emails from lovely Betty, and have included them both below!
(pic 1) This is my 3-month old baby as she snuggles cozyly in her favorite Chibebe Snuggle Pod.
(pic 2) This is little Tahlia in her favourite Chibebe bean bag. I remembered I sent you her photo when she was only 3 months in this very bean bag. She is all grown up now and just turned 15 months.
You wouldn't know it, but Natashas little girl is in a spica cast. It seems the Snuggle Pod is helping her to rest in a comfortable position in her cast. Such a brave little one, and that smile. Oh that smile!

Indie just loves a cuddle in her snuggle pod! 💖 she has come a long way since developing distinctive sleeping positions in her early days...from the archer, starfish and la Tigre, the pod is still her favourite seat in the house.
The perfect example of how the Snuggle Pod is the ideal seat from birth and for many years after!
How many other baby products can be used for so long and be so useful for parent and child?
We are delighted with our Snuggle Pod as it gives us the luxury of moving it around effortlessly where we can safely keep an eye on our son, Taj when he has his quality time with our fur babies!
I love the Snuggle Pod because it soft, secure and versatile... he loves the Snuggle Pod because he can kick back and take it all in and chilld out as he pleases in absolute Snuggle comfort... ☺

Had such a fun morning of catching up, baby admiring and sharing ideas. All five bubs were so content in their @chibebesnugglepod it actually gave us so much time to chat. These baby beanbags are designed with comfort in mind and are angled in a way that helps babies with reflux. You can move them around easily, as we did when we realised what a gorgeous day it was and moved outside!
My baby girl Vivienne is loving her Chibebe beanbag & rocker so much we're giving one to get cousin once he/she is born!
Thanks Chibebe for creating such a great product.
I was given this snuggle pod 'n rocker as a gift when i was pregnant with my little boy and i just love it! I love the bird print and the interchangeable coloured seats. It is so beautifully made and the fabrics are great quality.
I also love the fact it is an item that he won't only use as a baby but he can use it for years as a small child.
I have also ordered one for my friend for her baby shower!!

The most beautiful morning, Our little Maddie had many milestones this weekend we are turning and rolling happily. But my favourite is her holding her hand to suck her thumb.. She loves her @chibebesnugglepod which has been a blessing for months xxx
Look who has a Pod at home and one at Grandmas!
My wife and I (and baby Camila) already have a snuggle pod which Camilla loves and uses most of the time so we are real advocates of your product. So much so, we are just planning on getting another for her grand parents house...
...we really love the product!

Here is a pic of Eden and her Chibebe Snuggle Pod - she loves it as you can tell!!
Trade Fair Pic!
We came across this pic just now, of a gorgeous Bub at one of our trade shows watching all the goings-on, on a Chibebe Snuggle Pod...In the middle of the hustle and bustle, she was so chilled and comfy!
We couldn't resist...we just had to show this little one off, on our Woodlands design Snuggle Pod!

She really does love the pod. Kicks her legs away with such delight every time she is in it!
Baby Tristan is sooo content in his Snuggle Pod. His huge, beautiful eyes just ooze with satisfaction of the comfort he is experiencing!
Thank you sooo much for your generosity and helping other LM babies out there!! It means the world to me!! I also wanted to say a huge thank you to all of your team which I am sure played their part in helping us and CWL out!

Hi! I've attached a photo of Emiliana - how cute! I just wanted to say thank you so much for the baby bean bag. It's Emiliana's new favourite thing. In the morning I take it into the bathroom and sit Emiliana in it.
She's very happy to sit in it while I have a shower. So thank you again! Without it, I'd still be in my pyjamas at 3 in the afternoon.
Indiana relaxing in her chibebe beanbag. Definitely an awesome beanbag. A great item where I can put her down and know she is safe while I attend to my 4 and a half year old and 22 month old.
We're not sure, but we at Chibebe think he's thinking: 'Luuurvin' the Pod! I can just chill forever on this thing. Thanks Mum!'
Foxy lil cub loves her Chibebe!
Meet Amaya! Best pod. Easy assemblage. Light-weight. Useful indoors and outdoors.
My one year old goes and gets her chair every time we are in the lounge room and definitely knows it's hers. I initially overfilled it slightly - I have found that about half filled with beans is a good amount. Looking forward to her being able to climb on it herself!
