If you are looking for something different for your baby but still find yourself using traditional baby sleeping pads, then why not try sleeping pods? Sleep pods are specifically designed to aid in the transition from traditional sleeping arrangements to those of cribs or beds, using the same wide, padded sides and narrow, firm sleeping surface to cuddle your baby tightly and mimic the texture of a real womb, creating a more secure environment for baby to sleep in. Sleep pods have now evolved to the point where they can even be used on cars! These sleep systems allow you to use car seats for your baby, and many infants have had wonderful experiences sleeping in these car seats when mom has left for work early in the morning.
The main reason that sleep pods are better than traditional baby sleeping pads is that the surfaces of these are flat and smooth, unlike the squishy, plush, loose, and pillows that can suffocate a baby. Another benefit to pods is that there is scientific evidence to suggest that babies that are cooped up in tight spaces and small sleeping spaces experience significantly fewer incidents of SIDS or sudden infant death syndrome. It is believed that this snug feeling creates a calmer sleeping environment, allowing for more restful sleep for baby.
There are two primary types of sleep system for babies: the traditional sleeping bag and waterproof mattress pad. Baby sleeping bags are designed with a zipper around the outside to close the feet and thighs to create an enclosed sleeping area, like a blanket. Although this method does have the advantage of keeping baby warm in cold temperatures, it also limits their range of motion, meaning that babies may spend some of their time in the bag rather than sleeping soundly in the bassinet, or in a separate sleep area. Waterproof mattress pads have a waterproof inner layer that helps keep moisture away from the baby's sensitive skin. It also helps to keep the baby comfortable, because they don't need as much room to move. However, the pads do not have a "closure" like the bags do, and babies may still roll off the pads into bed with a sleeping partner, ruining the comfort level of the pad.
The main features of baby sleeping pods are convenience and comfort, because they combine the warmth and comfort of a sleeping bag with the secure comfort of a crib. Most of them are filled with a highly absorbent foam or soft material that allows baby to stay warm and well insulated during cold nights and cool during hot nights. The main features of most of the models available on the market today focus on convenience and comfort. Some feature a two-in-one sleeping pod design, which is a convenient way to use one sleeping bag and change it into a crib by simply removing the attached "foot" part. Other pods, like the "medal" style, have a closure on each end with Velcro straps to close tightly.
Most of the "sleep" in a baby pods are shaped like a shell that has a couple of mesh windows, allowing air flow and ventilation. These baby pods will keep your little baby well ventilated and comfortable. There are three sizes of sleep in a baby pod; a newborn, a mid-crib sleeper, and an adult size. Most of the pods have a six-sided snap closure on the front so that they can be easily and quickly attached to your car seats, strollers, and other baby gear.
Most of the pods available are made from a combination of quilted and knit materials, so that they offer protection against rips and tears. The inside lining of many of the pods is made of a moisture-wicking material. This prevents your baby from becoming too overheated while sleeping. Sleep in sleeping bags, also known as "mattress", is often more comfortable than the traditional mattresses sold for infants. The best quality mattresses for babies are made of memory foam, which works to cradle and contour your baby's body just the way it was designed to do.
Sleep in a Pod also offers you the opportunity to get a Snooztime Bed. These adorable looking beds are actually designed with a button on the back that makes them "snooze". Because babies spend the majority of their time sleeping, this is an excellent choice for parents who are concerned about the health of their little one.
The Sleep in a Pod system is very easy to use; simply place the pods inside your car seats, strollers, or other baby gear, then attach the Snooztime Bed to your bed for a secure, warm, quiet night's sleep. The best part about using these amazing pods for your baby is that the manufacturer guarantees that your baby will get a sound, comfortable night of sleep each time!
