WHAT SIZE OF NESTO PAD SHOULD I BUY FOR MY BABY?
The Nesto Pad is available in two sizes, MINI size( 0-8 months) and MAXI (0-12months). The MINI is intended for babies approximately 0-8 months. The MAXI is approximately 30% longer and wider than the MINI pad and is intended for tots approximately 6-12 months. Our experience is that parents seem to think their baby has outgrown the MINI size before baby is uncomfortable. As your baby grows, unbuckle the MINI pad to give their legs some room.
We also do not encourage the use of the pad more than 6 months, as the transition for the baby to the crib should start from 4 months onwards. With time babies need more space to stretch their limbs and babies like to move around and crawl more often.
It is best advised that babies should use the pad more and more for lounging/play time and tummy time in the growing months and slowly help the baby to transition from the pad to the crib for nap time.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MINI AND MAXI NESTO PAD?
The MINI Nesto Pad is the ultimate docking station for your baby ages 0 to 8+ months old. Multi-functional and multitasking, the MINI offers a comfy spot that lets baby lounge, play, cuddle, do tummy time and get diaper/nappy changes. The MINI Nesto Pads are lightweight and portable with versatile add-on accessories, such as the mosquito net for outdoor time and Play Gym to support active movement and motor skills.
As your child grows, our MAXI Nesto Pad provides both comfort and support to kids ages 4 months to 12 months. The Grand size is approximately 30% longer and wider than the MINI. It is the perfect place for playtime, family movie night, and story time. Older tots love to move their favorite lounging spot around the house, and it’s also ideal for travel—to grandparents’ house or on holiday/vacation.
The MAXI can also help ease an older child into their new toddler or big-kid bed when they’re otherwise ready as the sides provide a sense of security.
