A. Your baby's safety is our #1 priority. We not only meet the standards set by the ACCC (as established in the Trade Practices Regulations 1979, amended December 2004), but go above and beyond the mandatory standards with our own voluntary tests conducted in a world renowned consumer testing laboratory to make sure we have the safest and most secure product for your child.
A. When buying for your young ones— especially newborns— it's important to know what safety measures the manufacturer has taken to ensure it is a baby-safe product.
1) Has the material been tested for unsafe elements that could harm your baby?
2) The outer base coating….is it plastic (PVC) or fabric with a water resistant lining? Plastic obviously has a much higher flammability danger; therefore, it would seem logical to use a water resistant fabric instead.
With so many different types of baby beanbags out there now, it's important to know that it is not mandatory standards practice for a baby bean bag to be laboratory tested for harmful elements such as the above mentioned. They are simply required to meet the basic Australian mandatory standards for beanbags (i.e.: zipper latches that lead in to the inner beans to be removed and a specific warning label to be attached to the bean bag).
Right from the start Bambeano has regularly undergone a series of voluntary baby safe testing performed by accredited and nationally recognized testing laboratory(s).
When a baby or child uses a Bambeano product, you can rest assured that in addition to the Australian Mandatory Safety Standards Practices, the Bambeano brand has gone even further toward ensuring a baby safe product for your child.

A. Whilst the Bambeano Baby Beanbag is tested from birth to all ages, it is specifically designed for newborn babies, and up to about 7-8 months, depending on the size your baby. After that, the Bambeano Baby Beanbag can be used by bigger children by switching out the infant harness seat top for a toddler top, which is perfect for children up to about 8 years of age, although, they are tested for use for all ages. They are so comfy, we even use them here at Bambeano HQ for pow wows!

A. Easy……. Every beanbag comes with its own internal Bambeano monogrammed beanbag sleeve. Before inserting the internal bag into the base cover, you simply fill the internal bag and, after closing the lockable zipper safely, insert the filled bag into the outyer Bambeano designer cover base!. We recommend filling the internal bag in a bathtub....this way you can quickly clean up any overspills of beans. You will need a paperclip to open and close the zipper as certain zippers won't have a zipper puller due to safety regulations. Don't forget to remove the paperclip afterwards!
A. Beans can be purchased from your local vendors, like Kmart, Big W, or Target. It should cost approximately $11.98 - $14 for a 100lt bag. You will only need about 70lt of this to fill a Bambeano Seat.
A. 10,986 beans, to be exact...but a less precise way we can recommend is that you fill the Bambeano Seat three quarters full— approximately 70 litres of beans (about 2/3 of the 100lt bag). Remember, the more beans you add, the harder the Bambeano baby bean bag becomes. If fewer beans are added, the more the baby will sink further into the Bambeano. In the end, it is up to the discretion of the parent to ensure the right amount of beans for the ultimate seating experience for Bub!
A. 'Flathead' occurs when an infant's head is pressed continuously against a flat, solid surface. Since the Bambeano is designed to form easily to the shape of your baby's body and head, the pods work towards easily sidestepping this common phenomenon.
A. Most children experience reflux if they are not properly elevated after feeding. The Bambeano's elevation can be easily adjusted— just shift the beans toward the area of the beanbag where your child's head rests to raise his or her angle of elevation and help prevent reflux.
A. Every child is unique! The right time for this transition should not be based only on size, but also on your child's level of strength and coordination. If you insist on an answer, about 7-8 mnths old would be average, as they start to get a little fidgety and just want to get out and about at this age!
A. Bambeano seats are made by the makers of thew Chibebe Snuggle Pod, which is used in hospitals, medical centers, special baby practices and by thousands of happy mothers across Australia. The Bambeano will be used by the same facilities as it meets the same strict requirements that these facilities require.
A. No baby bean bag is not designed as replacements for a bed or a cot. A bean bag of any type should never be used as a substitute for a bed or cot. The Bambeano is designed first and foremost to help relieve baby reflux and flathead symptoms and to help them be happy, content and independent, and able to be aware of their surroundings and enjoy it freely yet safely. The bonus is that you are able to keep baby near you at all times, wherever you are. This means that baby is safe and comfortable always. It is because of all these factors, that Mums and Dads all over Australia are saying that they don't know what they would have done without one!
