This Baby Bean Bag is a Life Saver

Written by: Kelly Jones | Date: 25/09/2017

For the first several months of my daughter Willow’s life, she suffered with silent reflux.  It was a really tough time for her as she was in pain, feeding was horrible, her voice went hoarse from the vomiting and it also gave her oral thrush.  Not only was she suffering, but I was having a hard time of it as at first I had no idea what it was that was making her upset as you can’t see silent reflux as they swallow it

I had tried everything to relieve her symptoms but the only thing that seemed to do any good was cuddling and rocking her.  From that she became quite clingy and needed me to be in my arms or in her sight all the time.  By the end of the day my entire body would tremble from constantly carrying her around and jiggling her and trying to calm her.

Then I stumbled across the baby bean bag and it was for me a complete game changer.  It was so soft and comfy and she was actually happy to sit in it after a feed.  I move easily move the beans around inside the bag so she could sit up after a feed and watch the world go by as she digested.  Or I could flatten it out so she could lay down a little for a rest.

 

This was my life saver as I was finally free from constantly cuddling and jiggling and I could actually straighten my arms! Even better I could get things done around the house.  I’d have in the the kitchen while I cleaned.  I would take it into the bathroom with me while I showered. As the base is made of waterproof fabric I would have her outside on the grass while I gardened.

The bag came with 2 removable washable tops. One had a harness which I would use to strap her in and when she outgrew that I simply zipped it off and replaced it with the plain top that was harness free.  The fabric on the top is really easy clean too. I remember I accidentally spilled printer ink on it and it came out with a soak and a go in the washing machine.

When Willow was happily sitting up unaided, I emptied more beans and sat it up like a regular bean bag. Now, at nearly 5 years old she still uses it to chill out on.  She keeps it in her bedroom and carries it to where she would like to be.  Plus it’s not as big as an adult bean bag and doesn’t take up as much room.

This simple yet clever baby bean bag was such a good buy and I was so amazed at how versatile it was, that I created KJ Essentials so I could get this amazing product out to mums Australia wide.  Since then I have made thousands of parents and bubs as happy as I was and it is a product I am so proud to sell.  I know it works and I know it is definitely worth the purchase.

 

 

I have posted pics here of my daughter from the first day  I had her in it, to now.

My little one loves his teddy bear play mat and sleeps on it all the time.

Basically anytime he's sleeping while I'm not in bed, he's on his bear mat.

Ever since he got it he doesn't like sleeping in his bouncer anymore.

Thank you for such great service and all your help with phone calls and holding products ect and super fast delivery as well.

I purchased a gorgeous blue bean bag for my friend at work.
I was able to pick up the bean bag, already filled, en-route to the baby shower!
The mum-to-be absolutely loved the bean bag, and her little boy looks divine in it now!
Highly recommended :)

The baby bean bag is a fantastic new concept that is a great alternative to a bouncer. An item that will grow with my daughter for years to come.
The product has been well researched and the workmanship/fabric is of high quality.

I bought the KJ Essentials plush lamb play mat for my little girl and it is one of our favourite things!

We love that you can just throw it in the wash so that she always has a clean soft place to lie and play on.

It is awesome for tummy time as the non slip backing keeps it in place while she is rocking and rolling and head banging and the padding stops her from knocking her head every time she drops it.

When we aren't using it, we keep it her nursery for looks - it is the cutest floor rug!

We also take it to places like mothers group meetings and to grans so that we know
she has a home comfort that is safe and hygenic and comfy

Kelly I cannot thank you enough for your assistance and patience.
Your after sales service was brilliant. If only all businesses could provide the
same level of after sales service life would be so much easier.
Especially when you are a tired and confused new mum!

I have bought a beanbag, elephant playmat and the owl nightlight. They're all amazing quality!

Perfect for my little grey and white nursery.

I couldn't be happier with my purchases.

The option of afterpay is brilliant and takes away a lot of stress, shipping is fast .

Not to mention; It feels even better buying from an Australian owned business. (Complete with a hand written thank you note from Kelly on the invoice)

I would recommend this company to anyone.

I bought this bag for when my granddaughter comes over to play.
She loves to sit in it on the back porch and watch the birds in the trees.
