    Lounge Pods | Baby Nests FAQs

    Baby nests are safe to use from birth until around 6-9 months or until they can independently roll onto their tummy. Baby nests are perfect to use around the home as they are light, portable and easy to clean. As a safe space for baby to rest, enjoy supervised tummy time or self-soothe, baby nests are especially handy for parents who need their hands free and want a portable yet safe space for their newborn to rest. However, you should note that baby nests are not a substitute for a cot or safe sleep space. For newborns and babies, make sure you follow the safer sleep guidelines advised by the Lullaby Trust.

    Whenever your little one is sleeping, they should always be placed on their back on a flat, firm surface in order to reduce the risk of SIDS. Unlike baby nests, which are perfect for supervised resting and even tummy time, The Lullaby Trusts safer sleep guidelines always recommend a clear cot free from nests, cushions and cot bumpers when sleeping. You can use your baby nest on the floor or sofa - as long as you're close by and able to supervise while they're resting. Lastly, you should only use a baby nest during the period where your baby is unable to roll onto their tummy on their own.

    Anti-flat head baby pillows help to distribute the weight of baby's head evenly, preventing Plagiocephaly – or ‘flat head’ syndrome. 'Flat head’ syndrome is a common newborn condition affecting around 1 in 5 newborns, which is why some parents choose to opt for a baby pillow that offers support for baby’s neck when lying in a safe position on his/her back. In collaboration with a Paediatric Ostepath, Babymoov offer award-winning solutions like their Love Nest Baby Pillow specifically designed to help prevent and reduce signs of flat head syndrome, while also improving comfort for your little one in those important first few months.

    According to The Lullaby Trust, certain sleeping products for babies, such as sleeping pods, nests, hammocks, cot bumpers, pillows, duvets, and sleep positioners, do not comply with safer sleep guidelines. Although their link to SIDS is uncertain, independent investigations from MadeForMums uncovered 7 non-UK cases where babies passed away while co-sleeping with their parents in a sleeping pod or nest however medical reports reinforced the fact that the fatalities were associated with bed sharing and not the sleeping pod or nest.

    Baby nests offer a multitude of benefits, ensuring your little one is snug and secure. These adaptable items are ideal for newborns up to six months of age, although some styles can accommodate infants up to nine months. The length of time the nest is usable will depend on your baby's size and the specific product you choose. Generally, a baby nest should not be used past the point where the baby can roll over, push up onto their hands and knees, or sit up independently. Therefore, we strongly recommend reading the manufacturer's guidelines to ensure correct usage.
