Safety

Quality & Safety all-in-one product is hard to find...now with Mini Beanz the long search is over! Mini Beanz was not only created for our own little ones but for yours too.

Mini Beanz Bean Bags are lined with a separate inner bag to hold all those thousands of little beans that can threaten the safety of our little ones. A safety zipper that can only be opened with a paper clip ensures your little one cannot unzip the bag. The safety measures don't stop there! The outer Mini Beanz Base Bag ALSO has a safety zipper that can only be opened with the use of a paper clip. So for those parents who can just never be too sure, you can relax and have peace-of-mind with Mini Beanz! Please be sure to remove all paper clips after filling your Mini Beanz Bean Bag.

Mini Beanz strongly advises no baby should every be left unsupervised on any bean bag or be put to sleep/nap on the bean bag. A firm flat surface such as a cot or bassinet is recommended.

Children can suffocate if bean bag filling is swallowed or inhaled. Do not let children climb inside a bean bag. A bean bag is not a safe sleeping surface for an infant under 12 months of age. Do not place a bean bag near an open fire.

 

Helps Prevent Flat Head

From first hand experience Flat Head (Plagiocephaly) can be daunting. Not only do you want to make sure your baby is comfortable, you also have to remember to rotate and repositon their head at every nap time, very hard to do when you are sleep deprived yourself.

Flat head occurs when your baby is spending too much time lying on either side of their head, causing external pressure to their soft skull. Their necks can also become tight and the use of Physio may be needed to help relieve tightness in their neck/shoulder muscles.

Since your baby spends alot of time on their back, you can now reduce the risk of flat head syndrome by placing your baby on a Mini Beanz Bean Bag inbetween play / sleep times. Whether it's for a quick feed or chill-out session, your baby will lie on their back with no pressure being put on their fragile skull. This is all because Mini Beanz Bean Bags contain micro-beans which mould around your baby's head creating support with no pressure.

Helps Relieve Reflux

Any Parent who has has a child with Reflux would agree that they would try anything to alleviate their childs pain. We as adults are in pain from a little Heart Burn, let alone our little baby with no sense of understanding what is happening to them.

We have tried almost everything for our babies, from baby drops, changing formulas and finally elevating our babies beds. This is what helped the most. Reflux is generally caused by acid in the stomach finding its way back up into the esophagus causing a burning sensation.

During and after feeding was probably the worst. Mini Beanz Bean Bags can help relieve reflux in babies. By placing your baby on a Mini Beanz Bean Bag you are able to position your baby in an upright position by pushing and moving the beans to the back of the bean bag during and/or after feeding.  This positions your baby in a slight/moderate incline to prevent the onset of Reflux.

Waterproof

You can rest assured that your Mini Beanz Base will not be ruined by any of your babies little accidents as  both the newborn and infant/toddler cover have a waterproof backing to prevent spills seeping into your base.

Machine Washable Cover

Mini Beanz Bean Bags have two waterproof machine washable covers included in your package. Each cover is easily removed by a zipper. The newborn cover comes with a harness to safely hold your baby in place, whilst the infant/toddler cover is plain so it can be used for many years ahead. We recommend to either hand wash or machine wash on a gentle cycle with cold water. They are best air dried to prolong the strength and life of the cover. Do not tumble dry.

The Satin or Polyester Base of the Bean Bag can be wiped clean with a damp cloth/sponge. You can then wipe over with a dry towel to remove any damp spots left over by your cloth/sponge. We recommend not to use any detergents that can stain the fabric. Do not use abrasive or cream cleansers.

BONUS: Rest assured that your Mini Beanz Base will not be ruined by any of your babies little accidents as they both have a waterproof backing to prevent unwanted spills.
