Hello 👋🏻 I'm Charlotte, the Mum behind the @poddle_pod 💕! The concept of our Pod was inspired by my fifth child Deacon, who would fall asleep in my arms but would cry every time I put him down. I was struggling to keep on top of the daily chores, as well as looking after myself. My Daughter Lily-Mae was two years old and I also found it very hard to spend some quality time with her.
I was talking to my mum one evening explaining how I needed somewhere to place him that gave him the same sensation of being cradled in my arms and we came up with a basic version of what the Poddle Pod is today. Over a space of a few months, Deacon tried different versions until we found one that worked. He went from having cat naps to a decent quality, long nap time, which meant he was refreshed and happier upon waking and I had some time to catch up with the chores, play with my daughter or even just sit down with my feet up and a HOT cup of tea. It was fantastic to use when visiting my friends and family as it had the smell of home to it which was familiar to Deacon and he loved Tummy Time in his Poddle Pod.
Fast forward 6 years we still make the Poddle Pod in the UK with our 5 staff who are mostly family, we now supply many hospitals and nurseries throughout the UK as well as helping many parents with their own little 'Deacon' to contend with.
Thanks so much for all the lovely pictures, likes and comments ❤️ please keep them coming, it’s a dream come true to see your little ones enjoying their Poddle Pods xx
