Based on previous experience, I am 99% sure we could use one of these for the newborn days. With both girls we ended up co-sleeping for a while but it only helped them sleep but not me as I was so worried about squashing them. I think either a poddle pod or sleepyhead would mean they would either settle better in the moses basket/crib or if I did have them in it on the bed I would be more confident about them being there. I am rubbish at swaddling and both girls had strong startle reflexes.
Does anyone have any experience of either? I am swaying towards the sleepyhead purely because it's more expensive (ridiculous I know)! I was hoping to get on e*bay but they still seem to hold their value so well I might as well buy new.
Or, am I being fooled into thinking I actually need either of these?

We had the sleepyhead and it was fab. We used it on the bed to begin with as Ben wouldn't sleep in the crib, we then eased him into the crib, he was in it for ages and we went back to it for a while when he started to be able to rollover. I loved the fact that he could fall asleep downstairs with us then when we went up to bed we carried him in the sleepyhead and he would stay asleep. It also allowed us to stay over at my parents as he slept in the sleepyhead. Sorry if I've rambled I wouldn't have been without it!

I've got the poddle and toddle pod and love them. My toddle just arrived today and it's the first time in months my baby has slept without being on me (he has outgrown the poddle). I prefer the look on the poddles as they seem more snug whereas not sure a sleepyhead would cocoon a newborn but since I don't have one I can't really compare the two brands.
