BEAN FILLING CANNOT BE PURCHASED FROM THIS WEBSITE WITHOUT A SNUGGLE POD IN THE SAME ORDER. WE WILL CANCEL AND REFUND IF PURCHASED SEPARATELY.
We charge a flat rate of $25NZD for beans, which includes the cost of shipping them to you from a third party.
Or while you're waiting for your Snuggle Pod® to arrive, you can grab a bag from the stores mentioned above, online or in-store, so that you can have them ready for when your Pod arrives!
Most beans come in 100lt bags. Use only 65lt (or two thirds of a 100lt bag) of this to fill your Pod! As Bub grows, empty the beans a little, to suit their comfort level.
The Chibebe Snuggle Pod has been designed to give your baby the most restful, safe & comfortable experience possible. Filling the Pod is always at the discretion of the carer, but we recommend filling with approx. 65lt of beans (this is about 2/3 of a 100lt bag).
The Pod is designed for Bub to be able to take in their surroundings and be a part of your daily activities with you. Overfilling the Snuggle Pod will make the surface too flat, and Bub will be staring at the ceiling, not at you or their surroundings. Ceilings are boring, even cool ones with posters of Peppa Pig and stuck on them get a little too much after a while.
Make sure the seat is inclined, so Bub is sitting upright, with their head resting back on the pod. Imagine yourself, sitting in an adult beanbag. If it is too full, like a pouffe, you can't fully settle in it, and you would roll off, right? But if it were not so full, you are all nestled in it, and can't roll it, or get off it unless someone helps you out. It's the same idea with the Snuggle Pod.
Filling it so that Bub can sit IN it, not ON it, means they can't get out of it without your help, and they can't roll it, and they get to chill out and look around and even watch Peppa Pig on TV (not the ceiling).
But the most important reason you want to sit them upright in their Pod is because the Pod is intended to help relieve reflux (GERD) and prevent flathead for your precious little one.
So, as you can see, we're super serious about what we do, but we kinda love how we do it!
