Safe Sleeping Tips for Baby – Gunapod Luxury Duvet Sleep Sack
from Lisa Weidknecht
As a new parent, safety is always the top priority. You want to make sure your baby is sleeping as safely as possible. Once your baby falls asleep, you likely sneak away to tidy the house, do some much needed laundry, or even catch some sleep yourself, which means you aren’t supervising your baby. It’s not possible to supervise your child 24 hours a day, so making sure you have the safest products for your baby is very important.
Safe Sleeping Tips for Baby:
- Babies do not need pillows. The NICHHD recommends that you avoid pillows for babies under one year of age. They recommend that parents never place baby on a pillow to sleep and never add pillows to the crib. This is to reduce the risk of SIDS.
- Babies do not need crib bumpers. According to the AAP, there is no evidence that crib bumpers protect against injury, but they do carry a potential risk of suffocation, strangulation, or entrapment because infants lack the motor skills or strength to turn their heads should they roll into something that obstructs their breathing.
- Blankets are not recommended for babies, either. For more than a decade, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the NIH, and safety experts have warned parents against using soft bedding in infant cribs, either over or under the baby. That includes blankets and quilts. That doesn’t mean letting babies freeze; experts recommend safe one-piece sleepwear and keeping the room at a comfortable temperature.
The safest way for babies to sleep is on their backs on a flat mattress with a tightly fitted sheet. You want to make sure your baby is not too hot not too cold to sleep comfortably. If you are cold, your baby is cold. The Gunapod Luxury Bamboo Duvet Sleep Sack takes into account both the safety of your baby as well as the comfort of your baby.
This adorable Gunapod comes in several different prints, including this Alphabet print which is perfect for either a boy or a girl, plus pink and white hearts for girls, and blue and white stars for boys. Gunapod exceeds the strictest standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CPSIA, so parents can be assured their baby is sleeping safely.
A Gunapod is a wearable blanket, made of soft-fibered rayon fabric made from eco-friendly bamboo — a self-replenishing plant that is both plentiful and naturally harvested. The hypoallergenic bamboo fibers actually breathe better than cotton. The fabric is breathable, moisture wicking, and antibacterial. Perfect for protecting sensitive skin, and for keeping your baby’s body from getting overheated. The silky soft bamboo viscose spandex envelops premium insulated lofty fill. Plus, it’s channel stitched to keep the down-like fill from shifting, ensuring even, all-over warmth, and a perfect night’s sleep.
Gunapod comes in small for 0-9 months, medium for 9-18 months, large for 18-24 months, and extra large for 24-36 months. The fabric is so luxurious that you’ll wish it came in adult sizes. Gunapod also features a patented Wonderzip System that allows parents to easily change diapers while keeping the rest of baby covered for warmth. It unzips from the bottom so it can also be unzipped for extra air flow on warmer nights. It also has a wide, long fit so baby can kick and move legs and feet without restrictions. The large armholes and shoulder snaps make dressing baby for bedtime quick and easy. Even the zippers have little covers to make sure baby is comfortable!
Gunapod has won several awards for their ingenious design, including Mom’s Choice Awards, Dr. Toys Best Picks, First Candle Safe Sleep, and Family Choice Award. Gunapod will help baby sleep more comfortably and more safely, which means parents can get a better night’s sleep too. I absolutely love the Gunapod Luxury Bamboo Duvet Sleep Sack. It’s a perfect gift for new parents!

Luxury Wearable Blankets For Baby Are A Reality With Gunapod
A review by My Sparkling Life
The days of adding blankets to cribs are long gone…we all know keeping a blanket out of the crib reduces SIDS. If you live in a house like mine where even you are cold most of the time, how do you keep baby warm without them suffocating? Wearable Blankets have been the key for a few years now and Gunamuna has taken them to a luxury level with their Gunapods.
Extra lush and snuggly, our new Luxury Duvet Sack provides your baby with the ultimate sleep experience. With super-soft, silky viscose from bamboo that envelops premium fill for extra warmth, it feels like a down comforter. Plus all the exclusive features that have made Gunapod the choice of moms. You’ll love it so much, you’ll wish we had one in your size.
I actually do wish they made them in my size! We might have just spent half of our review time snuggling with it…it’s really that soft! The Gunapod is designed with a 4 way zipper (we’ll talk about in a moment) & snap closures on the shoulders. These features make it super easy to get on and off a wiggly baby. I love the Zip garages that provide added protection for baby’s skin (the little flaps of fabric over the zipper pull).
The Gunapods WONDERZiP® is a 4-way all around U zipper that really makes life easier. With this design it provides easier diaper change & with it’s sleeveless design it enables you to regulate baby’s body temperature for continual comfort — ensuring healthy airflow. The generous fit provides baby with plenty of space to fold legs + spread out, move arms freely & the roomy Gunapod sack can’t be kicked off. That means baby stays comfortable and safe all night long.
All of these features is why Gunapod is a top pick for this years Baby Shower Gift Guide! Now…if someone could get to making me some sort of mermaid blanket out of this plush fabric, that would be great! Mumpod perhaps? 🙂

If you’ve had a baby, or lets be honest, a long living pet breed or ever bought a boat, picking a name is no small task! There’s so many things to consider…Is it too popular or too “unique”? Is there a nickname or will you use just the full name? Will the name work for an adult too or does it feel too babyish? What will the monogram be…does it spell something inappropriate or weird that may become an unwanted nickname? Is it too short or too long? Does the name flow with the other names in your family? Will you love the name forever and ever? GAH!!!!!! So.Much.Pressure! Asking friends and family can be helpful but sometimes that backfires too…everyone has their opinion or knows of someone with that name and their opinion of the name may be clouded because of the person they knew.
But at least we have ALL been there at least once! And sometimes waiting until you meet your new addition helps make choosing their name a little easier. Aanndd sometimes that complicates things because you are on a deadline for paper work.
At Gunamuna, we struggled with this too. We are moms, we are pet owners, but also, when we make a new product, we have to name it. We created our Luxury Duvet Gunapods, and because we were SO excited about them we were at a loss for the perfect name and so we named them what they are: Pink Hearts, Blue Stars, and Alphabets. All are fine names. Short and to the point, but we decided we need to punch things up a bit and find some names that really truly fit them. Our fleece have names: Blueberry, Carrot, Charcoal, Chocolate, Cocoon, Pink Peppermint. Why should they have all the fun? Unlike with naming humans, pets and boats, we can change their names even though they are many months old. And unlike baby naming, we actually DO want your help! In honor of Valentines Day, w recently we asked our Instagram fans for some names for our Pink Hearts and this is what they came up with:
“Sweetheart” “Carry your heart” “Lots of Love “
“Smitten” “Love at First Night” “We Heart Sleep”
So many good options! How will we ever decide? We would LOVE for you to vote for your favorite or toss one of your own ideas into the ring! We can not wait to see which name will win!

Gunapod Luxury Duvet for Baby: Review & #Giveaway
Having a newborn can be scary. SIDS was always a worry when my kids were babies. You have to be careful and keep blankets and other items out of the crib. Sleep sacks are a safer alternative to blankets. Gunapod makes a really nice wearable blanket that is perfect for keeping baby safe and comfortable. Gunapod features a Wonderzip system that makes diaper changes easy and helps control the temperature to prevent overheating. It opens completely from underarm to underarm with 4 separate zipper pulls so you can configure it how you like. Unzip the bottom to accommodate a stroller safety strap or allow baby to kick freely. There are shoulder snaps and generous armholes for comfort. I like how the front zipper has a little flap at the top to cover the zipper pull so that it won’t irritate baby.
You can rest assured that this product is safe because it was made with adherence with the strict standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CPSIA. I got the super adorable pink heart print Gunapod Duvet for my brand new niece. I was amazed by how soft and cozy the fabric is. Seriously, I want one in my size! The secret to it’s luxuriously soft feel is the soft-fibered rayon fabric made from eco-friendly bamboo — a self-replenishing plant that is both plentiful and naturally harvested. The hypoallergenic bamboo fibers actually breathe better than cotton which makes it perfect for protecting sensitive skin and for keeping your baby from overheating.
Another thing I love about the Gunapod Duvet is that it is made so that it can be used longer than a normal wearable baby product. The size small fits 0-9 months! My niece was only 2 weeks old when this photo was taken and there’s lots of room for her to grow! The Gunapod Duvet is available up to size XL which will fit up to 36 months.
The fabric of this particular style is amazing but the other ones look pretty amazing too! The plush fleece look super soft! Be sure to check out everything they have to offer at www.gunamuna.com.

Gunamuna has the perfect Valentine’s for your little one. Introducing their newest version of their wearable blanket – Gunapod® Premium Luxury Duvet.
Featuring the unique all around WONDERZiP® system. Which helps you have the easiest changing of the diaper while you are out on the go. And helping to keep the little one from getting too hot. Because it will open from the underarm to underarm.
While featuring 4 separate zipper pulls that work in many different ways. You can unzip from the top to the bottom and leave the top of the Gunapod® snapped together. Or you can unzip all the way down the front to give you easy access to your baby. Because if you unzip the Gunapod® along the bottom, it will accommodate a car seat or stroller safety strap. Which gives your baby the freedom to kick all they want too.
Also snaps on the shoulders with a big and loose neckline. If you need to, you can unsnap the shoulders and lift your baby out from the top of the blanket. I really love the big loose fit. These are so amazing and so super soft and comfy that I wished they made them in adult sizes. Because I would keep one with me while traveling.
While they are super extra lush & snuggly offering your baby the ultimate sleep experience. While it really doesn’t get any better than this. Super-soft, silky bamboo viscose that wraps around premium fill that helps to keep your baby super warm. It really does feel like a down comforter. It keeps your little one snug as a bug. While meeting the strictest standards of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CPSIA.
Leave a comment and let us know what you think about the new Gunapod® Premium Luxury Duvet by Gunamuna. Think your baby would love this as much as I do? Hopefully they make them in adult sizes soon.
