I’m sure you have all heard of the Sleepyhead Deluxe Pods, but have you heard of the PurFlo Breathable nest? Here’s my PurFlo Review.

I hadn’t but whilst searching for some way to put Emerson down so I could pee without holding him, and making him feel comfy and cosy. I always saw mentions of the Sleepyhead Pods, but I could not justify the price of one, especially if he didn’t end up loving it. That’s when I saw a very similar item for half the price! Super cute designs, changeable covers and two size to grow with your littles.

Did we love it?

110% yes! Emerson slept in it during the day when I couldn’t hold him, he loved it! We would nap together on the bed with him in his little pod. This was before we started bedsharing full time. Tara (crazy dog), loved watching over Emerson whilst he was napping in his Pod.

PurFlo Breathable Nest Review

Do we recommend the PurFlo Breathable Nest?

YES! Especially if you’re looking at the Sleepyhead and just cannot afford it like us. Although he did grow out of it around 5 months as he’s a long baby but there is a bigger size if you wanted to move up. We haven’t as we bedshare now and he is a little wriggle monster! Also I’d miss the cuddles in the night and the tiny hands reaching out to find me for comfort & security.

Have you tried a sleeping pod that your baby loves?

Leave it in the comments I’d love to check them out! On the other hand if you didn’t try one, did you swaddle your baby instead? Or do you have any tricks to help your baby sleep in comfort and safety?
