The Stokke Xplory is my preferred pushchair to use at the moment as it’s so nifty and nimble for the school run. However, now winter is truly here I have struggled to find a cosytoes that fits, or a blanket that H-Bear won’t kick off. Then I stumbled across Nod Pod on Instagram, and discovered their amazing blankets with legs – and it’s been a game changer!
The Nod Pod is an innovative baby blanket. The blanket has legs, so it can be used with baby carriers, pushchairs and car seats, without the need for holes or zips to accommodate straps and buckles. The top part of the blanket wraps around your child, keeping them lovely and cosy without restricting their movement and annoying them.
The blanket also has a hood to keep your child extra cosy! Although at 18 months, H-Bear isn’t the biggest fan… But I can see this being an amazing feature for very small babies in carriers during colder spells.
The unique design of the blanket also means that they can be moved from the pushchair or car seat, still wrapped up, keeping them cosy and undisturbed.
The blanket is made from super soft fleece, and is lightweight. You can easily regulate your child’s temperature by removing the hood, or opening up the top part of the Nod Pod.
The inbuilt legs in the blanket also mean that no shoes are lost en route when H-Bear starts to play his favourite game of ‘remove the shoes and socks’! Hurrah!
I’m sad that I’ve only just discovered Nod Pod blankets, as they would have been so useful when both children were teeny – especially during the nights Nick spent driving Busby around to get her off to sleep at 3am! However, I’m so glad to have discovered them now as H-Bear is always super cosy when we’re out and about. It also means he can snooze in the garden in his pushchair and remains lovely and warm.
The Nod Pod comes in sizes 0-6 months, 6-12 months and 1-2 years, and I honestly can’t recommend them enough. Especially if you have a Stokke pushchair, or baby wear lots.
Prices for the Nod Pod start at £22 and their selection of blankets can be found on the Nod Pod website.
