Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Baby Sleeping Pods
Baby Sleeping Pods perfectly wraps the baby within a cocoon and limits only the space around, leaving the baby feeling secure and comfortable as in his/her mother's womb. It can be utilized in several ways: In the nursery – the Baby Sleeping Pod offers maximum protection from the hard edges of the crib, the low shelves of the pod assist laying the baby on the stomach, which is important, for instance, when a baby has an accident or a hard fall. At night – the Baby Sleeping Pod can serve as a bed that can be pushed back into the nursery. This will allow the baby to have more time lying down to sleep. Furthermore, the Pod can also be used as a cot for the baby to grow up with. At night, the Baby Sleeping Pod can even serve as a cot for the toddler as well.
The main features of the baby sleeping pods include safety and comfort of the baby. The main feature is its special material called the "Somniphobia" that allows the baby's head to breathe easily. The fabric is made of a breathable fabric, making it possible for air to flow through and circulate inside. Also, since this fabric allows air to pass, there is less chance of suffocation during the waking hours. Also, the material is highly absorbent and can hold the body heat of the baby.
There are two main types of baby sleeping pods. One type is called the bumper and the other one are the slumber bench. The bumper sleep system comes with padded sides that have pillows at each corner. These pillows can also act as safety cushions. If the baby's bottom is touching the pillow during the whole night, it will prevent him/her from suffocating. Plus, the baby will be able to sleep peacefully since there will be no risk of being disturbed by sound, light, or vibrations that can disturb him/her.
Meanwhile, the slumber bench baby sleeping pods have a frame-less design. This feature gives parents more freedom in selecting the best one that can perfectly fit their nursery room. There are now manufacturers that produce both standard and double bench versions of the cockatoo. It has padded sides, and it is also equipped with a Velcro strap or an adjustable band.
Aside from the standard and double padded benches, there are also portable versions of these baby pods. The most popular among them is the sleepyhead, which are also equipped with padded surfaces. The manufacturer uses premium fabric to ensure utmost comfort and ease of use. In addition, they are equipped with a pair of Velcro straps for convenient and easy adjustments.
Although there are a lot of advantages of using this type of snuggly bed, some parents may think that it can lead to some disadvantages as well. One of these is overheating. Most of these sleeping pods are made from lightweight materials, such as quilted cotton and polyester. These materials are non-flammable, but there are still some families who would not want their little ones to be overheated while sleeping. Some manufacturers, on the other hand, have managed to address the concerns of these parents by introducing a couple of pads placed on the upper portion of the bench.
Another major concern of parents is the safety of their child while they are sleeping. Some experts believe that the baby sleeping pod provides a lower level of security since there is no barrier to prevent the child's head from hitting the pillow or the mattress. Since most of these units come with a mattress pad that can absorb the impact, most parents have nothing to worry about.
Most of these baby sleeping pads are designed to fit any standard size crib. Although most brands provide the best quality, price and durability, you may be concerned whether these pads will not conform to your current crib or mattress. To address this concern, most of these units do not use heavy materials that will damage your precious baby's mattress. In addition, most of these products have been tested to meet very specific standards. This means you can be assured that you will get the best protection and comfort for your baby and he will also get the kind of comfort and support that he needs.
