What are the benefits of your baby sleeping in a bag?

- freedom to wriggle about without being restricted or tangled up in a blanket.
Choosing the right tog for your baby
- The Lullaby Trust suggests the ideal sleeping temperature for babies is between 16-20 ֯C, with babies under 12 months being particularly vulnerable when it comes to overheating.
- When picking your tog, understand that the higher the tog, the thicker the material and lining will be of the sleeping bag.

- 1.0 Tog is recommended for warm summer temperatures between 21-23 degrees C (69-74F)

The UK leading bedside cribs key features are improved breathability, creating the optimum sleep environment for your baby. A unique surface-level air-flow vents allow air to pass through the crib at a surface level where your baby rests, while an air-permeable mesh liner can be easily unzipped and machine washed to keep things fresh and free from bacteria.
Breathability while your baby sleeps means the ease with which air circulates freely and plays a part in aiding temperature regulation by ensuring increased airflow. With breathable holes in the base of the crib paired with an improved mattress and 3D mesh surface for enhanced support and machine washable cover, it promises comfort, breathability and safety all in one expertly designed crib. With newborns spending on average 16-18 hours a day sleeping, it makes sure their environment is as safe as possible.
When considering the sides of the SnuzPod4, it’s important to remember that the 3D Mesh aspect of the ComfortAir liner is over 8mm thick, so the fabric does not lie directly against the wooden side parts. This allows air to circulate in multiple directions. Keep the crib or standalone mode away from radiators or any source of heat to avoid overheating. Similarly with windows due to drafts, try and make sure they are kept at a consistent temperature.
What’s the difference between snuzpod4 and snuzpod3?
The main difference is the new ComfortAir system which is mesh vents and a breathable liner that helps airflow and helps regulate your baby’s temperature. It also has a new half-height wall setting that can be left in place during the night making it easy to access your baby without having to zip down the wall. It fits taller beds with a maximum mattress height of 73cm and meets all the latest bedsite crib safety standards.
Maximum mattress height you can use with a snuzpod?
The minimum height of your mattress should be 53cm and the maximum height is 73cm.
Why your snuzpod sits lower than your bed?
There is a safety regulation that means there must be a 12cm residual barrier or wall that means your baby can not roll onto your bed while you are asleep.
Why can’t the tilted reflex be used through sleep?
It’s in line with EU standards and safe sleep guidance to place a baby on a flat horizontal surface. We can only recommend that the reflux tilt be used while your baby is awake.
How to clean a Snuzpod?
When it comes to nighttime accidents the mattress protectors are fully waterproof and are crafted from a waterproof membrane, sandwiched by a layer of luxury cotton. Absorbing any accidents it keeps your baby clean and dry for a better night’s sleep. The fabric cover can be sponge cleaned with a mild detergent; we would recommend allowing this to fully air dry. The ComfortAir liner can be easily removed and machine washed.
