Your baby can feel more comfortable and relaxed with our product, as it creates a familiar environment that helps them fall asleep easily. Our air-permeable mesh, which features small holes, provides a low-stimulus atmosphere while allowing you to see your little one. You have the option to open or close the Cap based on your preference, while still maintaining a low-stimulus and familiar atmosphere for your baby. On busier days or when your baby is more restless, we recommend closing the Cap to minimize outside distractions.
Additionally, the Cap serves as protection against mosquitoes and other pests during the summer season, which is a nice bonus.
To ensure your baby's safety and stability while using the PIKO, simply utilize the provided sheet and fasten it securely underneath. This will prevent any sliding and provide a comfortable surface for your little one to rest on.
Ensure that your baby always sleeps in a cozy and secure environment by opting for a sleeping space that is not too spacious. If your baby outgrows the smallest size, converting it to a larger size is a breeze.
The PIKO comes in different sizes, with the smallest being 74 cm in length and perfect for a crib or co-sleeper. The largest size is 96 cm and can accommodate your child up to one year old, but we caution against using it once your child can sit up unaided.
We suggest using the smallest size until it no longer fits your baby comfortably. Since the PIKO is portable, transitioning from one crib to another is easier.
Your child will enjoy the comfort of the PIKO for years to come thanks to its sturdy sleeping base and easy dismantling. To ensure their safety as they become more mobile and start pulling up, it's important to gradually taper off the use of the PIKO during a quiet period while maintaining their bedtime ritual. You can start by keeping the PIKO open and then move on to daytime naps without it. If everything goes well, gradually reduce the use of PIKO until it is no longer needed.
Customize the POD according to your preferences by using the PIKO App:
We suggest selecting one sound for bedtime and another for when your baby is restless. Once you have chosen these sounds, we recommend avoiding any further changes. Consistency is key in creating a familiar environment for your baby, and this can only be achieved by playing the same sounds repeatedly.
The light and sound will automatically turn off after a set duration, which can be customized independently for each. The time range for both options is between 15 seconds and 12 hours.
You have the freedom to choose the sound that suits you best from a variety of pre-selected options, including white, brown, and pink noise, which are known to have a positive impact on your baby's sleep.
You can also record sounds yourself. The mother's voice is a good example, because this feels very familiar to your baby.
Has your baby grown out of the Cap? Then you can continue to use the POD as a night light with sound by placing it on a bedside table.
You can keep track of your child's sleeping schedule in a log. The POD alerts you when your little one cries, and this information is also recorded in the log. Maintaining a logbook helps you understand your baby's sleeping habits. Are they getting enough sleep per day? If so, they will be more well-rested. If their naps last more than 45 minutes, they have completed a full sleep cycle and will be (reasonably) refreshed after the nap. If your child is awake for longer than the recommended time, they may struggle to fall asleep and/or sleep for shorter periods. By paying attention to these details, you can determine what is working and what needs improvement. This allows you to make adjustments for a better routine for both you and your baby.
The advice provided explains how to establish a good rhythm and sleep patterns according to age. It also includes sample rhythms for different age groups. If there are any issues causing discomfort or irritability, such as colic or reflux, we provide guidance on how to address them.
You can access the PIKO manual digitally through both the website and the App. Additionally, there are helpful videos available that demonstrate how to set up, adjust, and travel with your PIKO. This eco-friendly solution eliminates the need for physical manuals and ensures you always have the information readily available.
Customize your POD settings through the PIKO App. You can adjust the duration of the automatic light and sound shut-off independently, ranging from 15 seconds to 12 hours. Select from pre-set sounds, including white noise, which are carefully chosen to promote better sleep for your baby. You also have the option to record your own sounds, such as the mother's voice, which can create a comforting and familiar environment for your little one.
Would the PIKO and sheets fit in the bag along with a separate room for the POD? If you're planning to purchase a mattress, this bag also accommodates it. Moreover, there's ample space for storing clothes, diapers, and other essentials, making it a versatile diaper bag.
As parents, we all desire a world that is habitable for our children when they become adults. Therefore, we prioritize utilizing sustainable materials and ensuring our production process is as localized as possible.
The PIKO CAP's wooden frame is crafted from birch wood in Estonia using raw materials that are environmentally friendly with an FSC® label. The glue used is formaldehyde-free. Additionally, the cap's mesh is made from recycled materials, while the sheets and mattress cover are crafted from organic cotton. Instead of a printed manual, you can easily access it through our website or app. Our approach is both convenient and eco-friendly.
Our focus is on local production, minimizing transportation costs by optimizing logistics. To achieve this, we have strategically located our manufacturing facilities. Electronics are produced in Someren, mattresses in Helmond, and sewing in Ede. Assembling and conducting quality tests on the PIKO is done in-house at our Nijmegen facility.
