Mia created the Snuggle Me in 2007 after having twin boys. She struggled juggling both of their needs and the needs of a toddler at the same time. She told her family that all she needed was someone to come in and just HOLD a baby. They got to work and designed a portable nest that would simulate the feeling of being held. It was the very first baby lounger, a brand new category of product. The Organic element of the brand was also of huge importance to Mia; she wanted to make sure her baby was held with only the best quality and safest materials. That is why all the materials are GOTS organic certified cotton because it holds the highest standard in the world for fabrics.

The Snuggle Me Organic Lounger is a baby nest designed to softly cocoon your baby in a safe and secure resting place. The Snuggle Me can be used for lounging, supervised rest, playtime, tummy time and more. It is uniquely designed with a patented central hammock which supports your baby’s head and neck in an optimum ergonomic position; promoting the development of head & neck muscles and helping to prevent flat head syndrome. Your baby’s head will be naturally elevated above the head and neck thus soothing reflux symptoms.
Snuggle Me Organic strives to be as natural as possible. The Snuggle Me Organic Sensory Lounger is made from 100% organic materials. All Snuggle Me Organic loungers are made with GOTS certified organic cotton fabrics and a hypoallergenic polyester fiberfill. GOTS Certified fabrics currently hold the highest and most strict material safety standard in the world. It ensures that zero chemicals are used in the growing process AND the manufacturing process of the fabrics. This certification is much higher than the popular OEKO-TEX certification used more commonly in baby gear.

Every component of the Snuggle Me is USA-made, even the very cotton threads are grown in the USA. The GOTS certification also extends to the Snuggle Me lounger covers, and the dyes used, which are water based with no animal or plant bi-products. The lounger is designed for use from 0-9 months, however, the lounger does adapt as your baby grows, and it is designed to accommodate a baby whose legs drape out of the center sling and over the end of the lounger. The added longevity adds to the eco-friendly nature of the product, since it can be used over multiple years.

The Snuggle Me Lounger is not only an extra pair of hands for busy parents, but the quality and materials are the safest you can get for your baby. Snuggle Me goes the extra mile to ensure all their materials, right down to the fibres and dyes used, are 100% organic. In addition to these core features of the product, the lounger has other notable features. Thanks to the virgin polyester filling both the loungers and the covers are machine washable, making it a breeze to clean. The unpadded center and snug fit of the lounger helps keep baby on their back and in place, yet it can also be used for tummy time. Finally, the lounger is suitable for use from birth, up to around 9 months.
