The Ko-Coon nesting pod, a new favourite!

When the Ko-Coon nesting pod arrived on my doorstep I was skeptical; we never had one with Aria and she was just fine, what difference could the Ko-Coon pod make? Turns out, quite a bit, so much so that even Dan is a convert!

Ko-Coon is a local company based in Cape Town whose aim is to make things a whole lot less overwhelming for parents – their merino wool products are handmade by the local community using natural fibres and neutral tones making them the perfect fit for any baby room and home. Their products range from the Ko-Coon nesting pod and beautiful moses baskets (with stands) to sensory receiving blankets and merino wool pillows.

After browsing their site for a while, you will notice that they put a huge emphasis on using merino wool where they can. After reading up about this particular material, I believe that this is one of the key stand out factors that sets a Ko-Coon nesting pod apart from the rest. Merino wool is incredibly impressive and has so many advantages when it comes to infants. Some of the benefits that stood out to me:

  • It is antibacterial by nature. This gives me such peace of mind that when Maia is sleeping in her pod, it is clean literally from the inside out. In the same vein…
  • It inhibits dust mites, mould and mildew. I certainly do not want those little critters anywhere near my child!
  • Just like a down duvet, it is cool in summer and warm in the winter, helping to regulate your child’s temperature.
  • Merino wool is completely hypoallergenic as well as breathable which means that it is great for little ones who might suffer from respiratory problems or allergies.

Now that you have some background into Ko-Coon and what sets their products apart, let’s chat about the nesting pod, because if you’re anything like me, you’re probably rolling your eyes and thinking, “not another baby gimmick” because I certainly did. Okay, so first things first, what actually makes up the Ko-Coon nesting pod and what do you get when you purchase it, I’m about to go into a whole lotta detail about each item including what they can be used for once your bub outgrows their pod, because you know, we like major bang for our buck.

The nesting cushion: This is the base or “mattress” of the pod and is made of that glorious 100% merino wool, covered by a weaved cotton fabric. It provides support for your baby but it doesn’t put any unnecessary or harmful pressure on their neck or spine. The cushion makes a great little mat for tummy time and can also be used as a pillow once your child needs one.

The border: My favourite part of the pod because it allows me to customise the pod according to Maia’s growth. So when she was a teeny tiny newborn, we made the pod smaller in essence. Now that she’s growing, we’ve widened things up a bit so that she still fits. It gives your child that snug and safe feeling which is extremely important during the forth trimester (the first 3 months after birth). I’ve used the entire pod as is for tummy time, but you can also take the border out and use it as your support tool. It also comes in handy to help prop your child up when you’re teaching them how to sit, as well as a make-shift bed rail underneath the sheet for when they move into a toddler bed.

The cover: Made from a soft knit fabric, the cover of the Ko-Coon nesting pod makes your baby feel as snug as a bug in a rug. It zips open and close so that it’s really quick and easy to change when you need to. I have two white ones and a stone one, both equally as gorgeous.

The puddle pad: Okay so this doesn’t come in the nesting pod bundle but it’s too good not to mention and well worth the buy in my opinion. The puddle pad goes on top of the nesting cushion (inside the cover) to protect it should your baby’s nappy leak, so like a waterproof made of natural fibres. It folds up really nicely and would also make a great change mat for your car or nappy bag.

This information is all good and well but what do I think of the Ko-Coon nesting pod, and why. Truthfully I love it. It has honestly become one of my must-have baby items and for a good few reasons:

  1. It helps with sleep, well in Maia’s case it definitely does. I find that she settles a lot faster and drifts off to sleep a lot quicker when she is in her pod.
  2. The nesting pod is really versatile and we have used it all over the house from her cot, to our bed and even in the lounge in her moses basket. I have used the pod for Maia to do tummy time and it works brilliantly. It’s also such a helping hand if she is awake but I need to help Aria with something (like for example, breakfast), I can plonk Maia on her pod, in her basket and I know that she is happy and safe while I attend to Aria.
  3. We can rest easy at night knowing that Maia is safe and secure in her nesting pod. For such a tiny little person, a cot is a really big space – I like the fact that the Ko-Coon nesting pod keeps my babe all cuddled up in one spot in the cot.

Would I spend my hard earned money on a Ko-Coon nesting pod? Absolutely yes. Would I recommend it to friends and family? Without a doubt in my mind. If you’re looking for a baby/nesting pod, I cannot recommend this one from Ko-Coon enough, not only is it so well made and versatile, it’s well priced, it’s locally made and it’s endorsed by pediatric occupational therapists and physiotherapists. They have also recently launched their “trade in baby bundles” which is such an incredible initiative and gives you 20% off your purchase!

1. Comment on this blog post and tell me what aspect of the Ko-Coon nesting pod most appeals to you.

2. Make sure you are following both myself and Ko-Coon on either Instagram or Facebook (or both!) and tag one friend in the comments of this picture on Instagram or Facebook (or both!)

Giveaway will run until 8 April 2019 at 20h00.

    Another thing I love about it is that it can be used anywhere which I think is great. My first born was a terrible sleeper when we would go out or be away from his cot. And I wish I had something like this then so he would think he was still in his bed hehe we ate expecting our 2nd baby in October and would love this prize so so much ❤️

    Sarah! Such a good post. Thanks for this. No plans yet for baby no. 2, though the practice doesn’t hurt. That said, when he/she does arrive I need a better plan for sleep time. I was so nervous about cot death that my little guy had zero blankets or cushioning around him. No comfort whatsoever, so naturally he only slept on me or when he was being carried, which is not ideal for sleep deprivation. So I guess the fact that the Ko-Koon is a safe space but still cuddly is a win from me. Xx

    I strive to support local brands and when I first heard about Ko-Coon I was immediately drawn to their ethical approach to produce sustainable, relevant products. Coming from the Eastern Cape I believe that merino wool is an excellent natural fiber that keeps baby’s temperature regulated as the weather changes. The Ko-Coon Nesting Pod is elegantly simple yet functional in design. Our little man is due in July and I would love to have a Ko-Coon Nesting Pod to see him through his early development stages.

This pod could have been placed between me and my husband in bed and would have made life so much easier than to get up all the time. She looks so lost in her cot.

As active people we want to be able to take our little guy with us to the tennis club and golf club but don’t want him to have to sleep in his pram the whole time! The portability of these pods means he can be put to sleep anywhere without lugging around too much stuff! I particularly love the Ko-Coon ones because of the merino wool. I grew up on a merino farm and we used to spend hours playing in the wool. Our skin was always nice and healthy and we hardly ever got badly sick! Natural fibres are always better!!

    As a first time expecting mom I can already picture myself not wanting to leave my angels side , especially at night . The first thing that I love about the Ko-Coon nesting pod is that I’ll be able to have him or her next to my bed side at night as opposed to down the passenger in the 2nd bedroom . Secondly after reading up about the Ko-Coon nesting pod and finding out about how it’s environmentally friendly using merino wool really spoke volumes to me because it’s supporting our community on our home soil . And let’s not even begin to talk about the beautiful Moses look , it really brings such a antique look to it that I really love so much . To be honest because of its mobility and light weight it will even make it easier to have him or her downstairs with me while I’m busy . I’ve been following Ko-Coon on Instagram and have already showed my partner (who loves it too ) .

    I love the fact that it’s so versatile… I’ve heard so many good things about pods but I’ve been so hesitant about getting one because of the idea of “how long will I actually use it for”. But to know that the Ko-Coon nesting Pod can change and grow with baby is awesome to know, and that it can be used in so many different ways makes it seem like something every mother should have rather than it being an unnecessary luxury… Definitely changed my opinion!!

    I just love everthing about the Ko-coon nesting pod but what apeals to me most is the hypoallergenic qualities it possess. With both my bous suffering from sinus allergies and many (o, so many) sleepless nights I would really like to be better prepared for baby sis’ coming soon. Minimising all allergy hazards and have the peace of mind that baby is save and snug would be such a comfort! And maybe I’ll get more sleep this round as well, bonus!

    I love lots about it! But really like that it inhibits dust mites, mould and mildew, and that it is antibacterial. We have allergies in my family, so keeping things free from dust and mould is important to me. Great that it is hypoallergenic too.

    My favorite part of the kacoon would be the versatility. I would love to be able to have one perfect product for the little one to sleep in, to be save, for tummy time and that I am able to move it to where I am in the house.

    The hypoallergenic feature sells it for me! As someone with a cat who I hope will take a liking to our baby, there will be lots of cat sheddings all around 😂 I would love to know that bub is sleeping in her spot safe from cat dander!

    There is so much to love, but firstly, I love that this is local – I like to support local when I can! I also love the Merino wool aspect and the antibacterial properties. As a first-time mom, I can see myself using this A LOT!

    I like the fact that it’s a lot more natural than some other pods on the market that seem so hard and it comes at a reasonable price too. I would love to win this! Baby is due on the 15th and we’re so excited!

    Hi there!
    So, first, the reason I’m entering this competition… My sister is about to become a first time mother, and she deserves the best!
    See, to get to this point, where she is having a beautiful (busy) baby boy, there have been a broken hearts and some concerns… but all of those were overcome and now (after quite some time) we are anxiously awaiting the birth of my nephew… but after all that, I want my sis to have everything her heart desires, which at the moment includes this. So I’m really hoping we’ll win ☺️🌸

    I absolutely love the fact that you can adjust “The Border”… How smart and how brilliant that my babe can fit perfectly and stay cozy throughout her sleeps in the Ko-Coo Nesting Pod *hand clap*. I also LOVE the antibacterial properties 😉

    My favourite part of the pod is the fact that you can customise the pod according to the baby’s growth, great that we are able to use it in different stages of the baby’s life & also saves bucks!

    It helps with sleep, well in Maia’s case it definitely does. I find that she settles a lot faster and drifts off to sleep a lot quicker when she is in her pod.

    I love the fact that it is a local company based in Cape Town and that their products are handmade by the local community. The benefits is also something that stands out for me.

    As a first time mom, im a little overwhelmed with this beautiful kid needing me to hold him all the time, so what appeals to me most about the Ko-coon is that it helps a baby sleep better and more (here’s hoping😉)Also the fact that is it made of a breathable natural fabric and is proudly South African.😊

    I am also Sarah! I found out about Ko-coon by searching online for organic baby-mattress alternatives, and also organic mattress covers (as Alina said in our phone conversation, there is no point in purchasing an organic mattress and then covering it with a plastic, chemically-processed waterproof sheet!
    My first baby, Elisabeth, is due in four weeks time and I want to choose the healthiest option for her (her father has serious mould and dust-mite allergies). I also don’t want her to be exposed to Polyurethane and all the other nasty gases released by commercial mattresses!
    I am intrigued by the qualities of pure merino wool: specifically the fact that it is resistant to mould and dust-mites and is anti-bacterial while also being hypoallergenic.
    I found your blog page by googling “reviews of Ko-coon” as I wanted to read an independent opinion of the product.
    Maybe it is too late to enter this competition, but I saw that it closes at 8pm tonight so thought I may as well take a chance 😉
