Quite disappointed in my slumberpod right now. Went to set it up for the second ever use and the pole snapped. I leave for camping in 2 days so now I have to figure out how to make this expensive tent usable. The first time we used it my baby slept quite well in it so other than the cheap poles I did quite like it.
HI Kristen! We're so sorry to learn about your pole issue! Please email us and we'll get something worked out for you! Also side note SlumberPod is tested and approved for indoor climate controlled areas only. You can also check out our YouTube channel on tips to help set it up without putting a lot of pressure on the poles!
We decided to invest in a Slumberpod after borrowing one from a friend. It is a game changer! We just did a month-long road trip with my one-year old son and it makes traveling with a little one so much easier! We didn't have to worry about covering windows or stashing our son away in a bedroom closet, or having to pay for accommodations with an extra bedroom. Set up and take down is super easy, and it rolls up into a small bag that is compact and transportable. The fan was one feature that I really appreciated in the end. We were traveling during a heat wave and some of our accommodations didn't have AC. Having the fan made me feel more at ease about my son not overheating. One minor issue is that the Slumberpod has a small pocket for cameras that has a plastic window. Even though it the pocket is designed for camera-use, ours would get very hot against the plastic (we have a Nanit camera that has a temperature monitor). We were able to get around this using a small mesh window at the top of the Slumberpod instead. Sometimes the mesh made it hard to see unless the camera was perfectly placed but it did the trick. But again, this is a very minor thing - overall the Slumberpod is fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Thank you for investing in your own, Adrienne! We're so happy to hear you all are loving it! Please note that the monitor would read the inside of the pouch temperature and not inside the SlumberPod. Be sure you're reading your baby monitor warning labels and instruction manuals. We do know that most all monitors go through extensive safety testing to shut down should temperatures rise to levels that are unsafe. Also SlumberPod is tested and approved for indoor climate controlled areas only.
I have LOVED my Slumberpod. I travelled back to back weeks with my 7 month old son, and he slept like a dream! Even slept in a few days on the road. I actually think he might sleep better in his Slumberpod than at home!
I think I expected it to be 100% blackout based on reviews, but just for full transparency (no pun intended) I would say it’s like, 95% blackout. I tested it in daylight and my baby slept great. I highly recommend.
Hi Adriana - thank you for taking the time to share your experience with SlumberPod! We really appreciate your 5 star review!
Worked exactly as advertised and saved our vacation! We weren’t stuck in nap jail
We look forward to many more vacations, Karen! Thank you!
This has been the most amazing purchase! It has saved us while camping and travelling and has completely imitated her blacked out room at home. If you’re on the fence about purchasing, I highly recommend it!
We appreciate your 5 star review, Alyssa!
