BEAN FILLING CANNOT BE PURCHASED FROM THIS WEBSITE WITHOUT A SNUGGLE POD IN THE SAME ORDER. WE WILL CANCEL AND REFUND IF THIS PRODUCT IS PURCHASED WITHOUT A SNUGGLE POD IN THE SAME ORDER.
Bean bag filling is available at any good department store, like these ones at Walmart, or these ones at Home Depot for Canadian customers, and these ones at Target if you are in Hawaii. Or, why not grab them from Amazon?
There are 3 options for acquiring bean filling for your Snuggle Pod:
- We charge a flat rate of $31USD for beans, which includes the cost of shipping them to you from a third party.
- If you are gifting, we can send an Amazon gift card to the recipient along with their order, so they can grab the beans at Amazon after receiving their gift from you! They will need to order a 100lt bag, which is the most common size sold.
- While you're waiting for your Snuggle Pod® to arrive, you can grab a bag from the above stores or any other quality department store that sells beanbag. You will purchase a 100lt bag.
Use only two thirds of a 100lt bag of beans (65lt) to fill your Pod! As Baby grows, empty the beans a little, to suit their comfort level.
I love the colors and design of the pod! My baby is 3 months old and ahe absolutely adores it. So comfy. I would of loved if it came filled or gave an easier way to get the beans in. Static electricity is not a friend.
My baby has not used this very much yet, but if assembled following the suggestions it’s pretty easy- just time consuming because the beans like to stick to everything! So be ready with a space you can work on filling without worrying about it going everywhere. it seems very well made and easy to adjust as needed, not to mention very cute!! It’s awesome that it is something he can grow with, and supports him well. It will be nice to have something cozy for him to hang out in!!
I purchased the chibebe snuggle pod after seeing it recommended by other moms online who have babies in the Pavlik Harness or spica cast. We love it so far.
My only problem is the beans! We used a poster board to make a funnel type thing to pour the beans into the chibebe bag and were in a dry bathtub (I’d recommend this as the best way) but we still got beans everywhere! I wish chibebe would sell their inner bag of beans already filled. I would pay extra for this! Everything else has been great but it was truly a pain filling the bag.
Our son has laryngomalacia piggybacked with horrible, painful reflux. The chibebe has been a huge relief for us in the daytime after feeds, especially as he has gotten bigger and harder to hold upright for extended periods of time! The only concern we’ve had is the adjusting strap for the seat is hard to tighten and loosen. I pulled to adjust it the other day and a piece of the plastic clip snapped off. It’s still usable, just had to tie it up. Will see if chibebe will replace this part as I don’t think this should happen! Other than that we love our chibebe and highly recommend!!!
We bought this bean bag chair for our 4-month-old who is in a Spica cast. Despite the long wait (shipping), we love the chair. It's very high quality and the baby is really comfortable in it. Worth the wait!
Rikka in customer service deserves a raise for dealing with my panicked emails about shipping delays.
<p>Everyone should know that Claire was AMAZING!! Due to this whole covid catastrophe, postage was delayed at the carriers end and we felt helpless. Claire was amazing and for her to leave this review after the shipping delays shows just how awesome Chibebe customers truly are, and is why we do what we do. Thanks Claire....we'll pass your comments onto our amazing Rikka, and happy podding!</p>
<p>PS: Bub is adorable and so happy we could help keep your brave hip dysplasia Bub comfy :)</p>
