The Must Have Product for Baby Sleep on the Go
Imagine you and your family going on vacation for the first time in what, two or three years? And you're nervous about how your baby is going to sleep. How will you black out the room? How is it going to work sharing a room with our baby!? Will we have to go to bed at 7 pm every night?
These were exactly my thoughts before I found the SlumberPod! As I am writing this review, my daughter is 10 months old and I couldn't imagine traveling with her prior to the SlumberPod. I love this product and I am going to explain all of the reasons why!
What is the SlumberPod?
The SlumberPod is a portable, privacy, sleep nook for your baby or toddler (yes, your toddler can use it as well!) that fits over your play yard or travel crib. The SlumberPod is a completely black out, bottomless, canopy for your child to sleep in when they are away from home. It meets all consumer product safety tests for baby products and was revised for CO2 rebreathing. One of the things I like most about the SlumberPod is how light and small it is and that it will easily fit in a carry-on.
Setting Up the SlumberPod
The set up for the SlumberPod is incredibly easy! It can be done by one person by simply inserting the two tension rods through the canopy and it immediately pops up. My husband completed the entire set up in about six minutes our first time pulling it out of the box and the next time we used it, it was about four minutes.
Where To Use the SlumberPod
The SlumberPod can be used at hotels, daycare, a church nursery or at grandma and grandpa’s house, among other places! I recommend it for anywhere that is not your child’s normal sleep environment.
Benefits and Features of the SlumberPod
I love this pod due to it allowing a great sleep environment for your little one with very little effort. The SlumberPod can be used by babies or toddlers (it fits a toddler cot or inflatable toddler mattress) and so it is something that you will use for years. While in a new sleep environment you don’t have to worry about blacking out a room or worry about room sharing because you can easily give your baby their own sleep space with the SlumberPod.
The canopy comes with an insert inside so you can add a fan (or you can purchase a SlumberPod with a fan). You can also add a video monitor at the top of the SlumberPod as there is a clear plastic pouch you access from the outside. I love the feature of being able to add a camera!
Cost of SlumberPod
The basic SlumberPod with no fan attachment retails for $169.99. Now this may seem high but I really do feel it is worth the investment simply because you will be able to use it for your baby and then all through the toddler years. Now if your baby doesn’t sleep away from home very often at all, then yes this may be steep and not quite a great product for you. But if you plan to travel then I think this is a must have. After your are done using it I feel confident you’d be able to sell it for nearly what you paid for it. So this is a win win!
I want to point out that I am an affiliate of SlumberPod but I joined the program AFTER I bought the product. This is in no way sponsored by SlumberPod and this review is completely my own. I truly do love this product and am so excited to travel more with our kiddos. Especially with the baby who doesn’t love to nap!
