Trust us. We know how important it is for you to be able to have your hands free when you have a baby. There’s work to be done, showers to be had and meals to be consumed. Some babies sleep well, some don’t. Some need movement, some don’t. Some need noise, some don’t. Babies all have different needs, which is why we’ve chosen four fabulous baby loungers that are safe, cozy and just the thing you need to keep your baby entertained while you drink that cup of coffee that’s been cooling since 7am.

  1. Snuggle Me Organic Infant LoungerMade in the USA, the Snuggle Me Organic Infant Lounger has been dubbed the “jack of all trades” pillow because it doubles as a safe co-sleeping pillow.

Made using 100% organic cotton for the cushion fabric and 100% cotton fleece for the hand-made removable cover, this version is filled with their signature polyester fiber fill, making it completely washable and resilient. Bring to bed, tote around the house, or take traveling, the Snuggle Me Organic is a fabulous choice for your little one!
