The magic is in the slightly raised and unpadded patented center-sling!
When you lay baby on the center-sling, the sides of your Snuggle Me will gently pull in against baby, giving the feeling of a hug. This is a unique, patented feature only found in the Snuggle Me. Because of their protective patents, no other lounger can give this sensory experience to your baby.
The exclusive design creates a unique fit around baby's torso, ensuring baby is not able to roll or turn within the lounger. It actively hugs baby, recreating the womb.
Keeping baby safely in the back position is newborn safety 101. We encourage all new families to take this into consideration when they are looking at other lounging options. Babies should not be laid on padded surfaces where they are able to roll or turn.
HELPS PREVENT THE "MORO" (STARTLE) REFLEX.
The startle reflex is a protective newborn reflex that causes unneeded stress on baby. Because the Snuggle Me securely contours to baby and provides physical support all around, it is the only lounger that truly tames the Moro (startle) reflex in infants. Again, this is due to the patented center-sling that forms around baby and provided the physical support they crave.
HAND CRAFTED IN THE USA DREAMED, DESIGNED, PATENTED, MADE IN THE USA.
10 years ago, the first Snuggle Me was made at a kitchen table on a used sewing machine with fabrics from the local sewing store. Staying true to their beginnings, Snuggle Me continues to employ local, Minnesota sewers to craft each and every Snuggle Me with care.
They've also chosen to only use fabrics manufactured here in the USA. Why? First, because they value supporting family-owned US businesses and second, because all fabrics made in the US are under the regulations of the CPSIA, which have the strictest regulations on fabric manufacturing in the world.
The Snuggle Me is uniquely designed to contour to baby's head and torso. At first, they WILL be able to fit all the way into the Snuggle Me center-sling, but as they grow, and begin to learn how to roll over, they will fill out the center-sling, and their legs will begin to drape over the bottom end of the lounger. This prevents them from rolling over while in the Snuggle Me itself.
This is perfect and exactly how to help baby still stay secure, yet remain on their back. If baby were able to fit fully into a lounger during this stage, they could potentially roll off or over in the lounger. Remember: when looking at other loungers where baby can roll, it is never safe for baby to lay on their tummies, no matter how "breathable" the fabric. The Snuggle Me is the only lounger that takes this important safety factor into consideration through it's design.
Baby has truly grown out of the Snuggle Me when their bottom begins to come up onto the end of the nest when laid all the way down into it, but not when their legs drape over the end. This happens to occur around the time that baby is beginning to seek more "space" while sleeping (around the 5-6 month mark) and can actually be the perfect time for baby to transition baby.
