Pepi-Pod® Safety Briefing
Have you bought, or been given, a Pepi-Pod® sleep space? Then here is where to find safety information to discuss with a trusted health professional.
Did you know that babies only breathe through their noses?
As well, they have a large and heavy head, a loose jaw joint and a large tongue. Together, these things make babies vulnerable during sleep. Every part of the Pepi-Pod® package has been designed to consider safety for young babies, as they move through this vulnerable stage of their development. This is a time, when it is possible for babies to block their own airways if they find themselves in certain situations.
The links below explain the safety features of the Pepi-Pod® sleep space and show how to make it up.

Discuss with your health professional

If you are offered a sleep space as part of a programme, you will receive a full safety briefing from a trained distributor as part of the programme. If you buy one through Trade Me you will receive this summary and be directed here.
Please help spread the education
We hope that everyone who gets a Pepi-Pod® sleep space will help spread the education about what makes babies vulnerable and how to protect them when they sleep. This is an important part of the programme. With your help, more babies can be protected. Thank you for your support in this way. The 'Your Tube' card and tube in each pod pack is to help with this.
