I love our Snüzpod. I knew as soon as I heard about them that I would want one for our baby. This was before I was even pregnant! I think the fact that I wouldn’t have to get out of bed to tend to the baby appealed to my lazy side.
Thankfully Little M loves it and (for the moment at least) goes down to sleep really well in it. We use it at the bedside but I keep the side zipped up while we’re asleep – I’m too nervous about co sleeping and we have a little gap between the Snüzpod and our mattress which isn’t recommended.
However, it’s fab for when she’s settled to sleep in my arms in bed as I can slide her across into the Snüzpod rather than lift her up and down – a particular bonus with Little M as she has a very sensitive startle reflex.
I also love the mesh side – it means I can see Little M any time just by opening by eyes. This is great because at the moment I’m super paranoid about every little noise she makes (or doesn’t make!).
On a completely superficial basis, we also chose the Snüzpod because it’s just so aesthetically pleasing – it looks really stylish which, considering it’s going to be a permanent fixture in our bedroom for the next six months or so, is a definite plus.
In addition to this, Snüz do a range of Designz bedding which is just gorgeous. We’ve got the Cloud Nine set and also the Rootin’ Tootin’ set. Both are such lovely prints and the blankets are reversible, too, so you can choose which pattern you have on display.
Have you got a bedside crib or a Moses basket? Perhaps you’ve had one of each. Which do you prefer?
Disclosure: We bought our Snüzpod ourselves but were sent a set of Designz bedding for the purpose of this review. However, all opinions are my own.
