Poddle Pods - worth the money?

Hi All,

As the title says really, has anyone used one and did you find it useful? Did you use it instead of a bouncer? Just wondering if you would "need" both?

I had both - totally different to one another.

DS grew out of the poddle pod around 3 months if not earlier but bouncer lasted longer. I used poddle pod for daytime naps & it was super.

I would def have both if you can afford it.

We used a toddle pod which is the next size up from the poddle. It was brilliant!
DD seemed to prefer it a lot more than her bouncer.
DD2 will be here soon and I will use it again for naps downstairs. I've also bought a second hand swing this time though and not bothered with a bouncer

Just remember the advice is for babies not to sleep in these or be left unattended due to risk of suffocation and over heating x

Check the NHS and Lullaby Trust website for more info- I know they're popular and look lovely and comfy, but personally I wouldn't take that risk.

The problem with these is that the baby is not straight and flat in them. Their necks are at a funny angle when they are suppose to be flat thats why i decided against one.

I got a nap mat instead.

Are Sleepyheads a better option? They seem to be designed for sleeping in.

They are still classed as what the nhs calls a "baby nest" and are not recommended for babies to sleep in. X

Is the recommendations not to leave -any child 6 months & under sleeping at any time unsupervised?

DS napped in the poodle pod beside me on the sofa.

They look cute but I just used to put my twins on the floor on a blanket during the day and they slept fine!

What about a Tiny Love 3 in 1 Napper?

Lasted til 8mo with mine. Perfect for daytime sleeping, and as a rocker etc.
