Baby sleeping pods are the optimal invention for keeping your tiny newborns both snuggly and safe at nap time.

Sleep pods are designed to help ease the transition from sleeping in mummy's tummy to sleeping in beds or cots, with the padded sides and narrow sleeping area helping to cuddle your baby and mimicking the feel of a uterus, making them feel warm, comfortable and at home. Baby sleep pods are great products for multifunctional use, designed to use by a parent's bed, cot, carpet, sofa or stroller.

These pods are also a great place for your slightly older babies to play and roll around on their tummies under appropriate parent supervision. Their lightweight feel also makes them great for travel and portability.

The Lullaby Trust state these pods should always include a firm mattress, which your baby should lie flat on and that all products purchased for baby sleeping should comply with British Standards and follow safe sleep guidelines. It is important that babies only sleep in these pods under supervision and that you do not use them overnight, to eliminate the possibility of your little one overheating or rolling over in a position that blocks their airway. The Lullaby Trust warns if a baby is set to sleep on a soft surface, there is an increased risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) so it is important that this is avoided at all costs. We've highlighted what we believe to be the top baby sleeping pods for style, coziness but, most of all, safety.

Baby pods are often an essential item for expecting mums and dads and can really help to make life that little bit easier and more comfortable for both baby and parents in their first few weeks.
