Designed to assist in relieving reflux and flathead symptoms in newborns, the Chibebe Snuggle Pod is a multi-award winning baby beanbag. It is the ultimate seating solution for use from birth. It even grows with your child, thanks to the included baby & toddler seat tops, which means your baby gets to bond with it from birth, using the baby seat, and continue to do so by simply swapping it over to a toddler seat top, for many more years of use, up to their tweens!

REFLUX RELIEF: The special shape of the bean bag is designed to help prevent GERD (reflux). The Snuggle Pod was created to be flexible and respond to you and your baby's needs. Post-feeding, just adjust the position of the beans to allow your baby 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 by carers all over the world 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 is reported to prevent flathead. Chibebe Snuggle Pods is raved about 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 widely reviewed to be 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 baby 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 designed 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!

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 Baby 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 Baby will be staring at the ceiling, not at you or their surroundings.
Make sure the seat is inclined, so Baby is sitting upright, in a seated position, 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 Baby 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 can chill out and take in their surroundings, including watching you do your thing!
But the most important reason you want to sit them upright in their Pod, is because this is how the Pod was designed, to help prevent reflux (GERD) and flathead for your precious little one.
Babies love the Podding Experience with Chibebe®, and we know you will too!
