But What’s a Baby Bean Bag?

A baby bean bag chair is exactly what it sounds like – a miniature bean bag for your little one to chill out in!

An infant bean bag is usually filled with dried beans or polystyrene, so they can adapt to your little one’s needs by moulding to their body shape and size. Combined with a soft fabric surface, a baby bean bag is a brilliant and comfortable alternative to traditional bouncers and rockers that don’t necessarily suit every tiny tot.

Newborn bean bags also come with an adjustable harness to keep your little one secure, which is perfect for when they start to get a little wriggly (though you should never leave your baby unattended)!

Still not convinced? We investigate the baby bean bag chair to find out just how valuable they can be for new parents.

6 Benefits of Children’s Bean Bags

1) Support

There are thousands of small springy beans inside a toddler bean bag that support good posture by moulding to your little one’s body.

Standard furniture can either be too hard and uncomfortable, or so soft it provides no support at all. The best baby bean bag seat will achieve the perfect balance between the two. It should be flexible for complete cosiness, and supportive enough to hold your little one.

Children’s bean bag chairs also keep your youngster upright, helping to prevent common conditions in babies like flat head and acid reflux – though we can’t promise you won’t come across any milky spit up!

2) Comfort

By adapting to your little one’s head and spine, a baby bean bag chair is great for maximising comfort. The soft filling allows your baby to sit how they like, as the bean bag chair conforms to your infant’s natural position. This offers extra comfort for babies who don’t like to settle in a firm chair that doesn't adjust to their body.

Infant bean bags also have comfy fabric surfaces that are soft on your baby’s skin, keeping them extra cosy during nap times!

3) Multi-Functional

An infant bean bag grows with your youngster. Some are available with removable straps, so you can take away the harness when your baby's sitting up and moving around independently.

You can even find some baby bean bags that are extra versatile and can be used between the ages of 0-3 years, so your little one can stay comfortable all the way through the toddler stage! Just make sure to always check the age label and safety instructions before making a purchase.

When they’re older, a children’s bean bag is an excellent choice for a multi-functional seat that can be used by kids and adults. They’re especially useful for when your baby hits the teenage years (it’ll come round faster than you think!) and wants their own stylish cool seat.

4) Easy to Clean

Managing baby mess is no mean feat. Most parents will tell you how difficult it is to survive the unavoidable food throwing, milk dribbles, dirty nappies and those baby hiccups that aren’t just a burp.

But the best baby bean bag seats have wipe-clean surfaces, so you can easily mop up spills. Some also have a removeable outer layer that can be popped in the wash if your baby has a little accident.

5) Portable

Lightweight and simple to carry, toddler bean bags are completely portable and will travel with you wherever you and your baby go.

Whether you’re visiting granny’s house or off for a weekend away, an infant bean bag can come with you. Even if you’re just moving the seat from room to room around the home, there are many designs that come with grab handles for easy transportation. Don’t forget to take your little one out first!

6) Stylish

Children’s bean bag chairs aren’t only a practical feature for your home – they look great too! Funky and cool, they make a trendy addition to any modern interior design.

Baby bean bags don’t just have to be functional. There are lots of colours and unique designs available, so you can easily find one that matches your décor. From a princess pink baby bean bag to a jazzy printed chair, there’s lots of styles out there to freshen up your living room, bedroom or baby playroom.

Should I Buy a Baby Bean Bag?

Of course, knowing how comfortable your baby’s going to be in any kind of chair is impossible until they’re actually in it. They might favour a bouncer, a bean bag, or maybe they won’t sleep unless they’re rocking in mum’s arms. If you can, ask your new mummy friends if you can test things out with your little one and try before you buy.

Remember your baby has their own unique personality and will change their mind – often! If you do end up choosing a children’s bean bag, pick one which adapts and grows with your little one. When they’re ready, your baby will snuggle up and get cosy in no time.
