What are the dimensions of the JoJo?
The JoJo is larger than most loungers, with a smaller end and larger end (hence the egg shape). The smaller end is uniquely designed for newborns and infants. We find that babies fit comfortably in the smaller end of the egg shaped JoJo until they are craving more shoulder room, rolling from tummy to back, at approximately 5 months.
The larger end of the JoJo is universally used for 6 months and above. The JoJo can be used so long as the torso of the child fits in the center sling (top of shoulders to bottom). The top perimeter of the JoJo is used as an ergonomic pillow and legs comfortably drape over the bottom perimeter.
What makes the JoJo better than other loungers?
For a few reasons:
The JoJo is the only lounger on the market that can be used, and exclusively, from infancy to toddlerhood and beyond. No need to purchase a larger lounger when baby grows out of the infant lounger. Simply switch directional lay in the JoJo and TaDa! One lounger, all of young childhood.
The JoJo is made of 100% cotton - no polyester fill or synthetic material. This means that the JoJo is breathable AND firm, durable AND easily washable.
The JoJo is CPC accepted (child product certification) as well as CPSIA certified for safe and non-flammable material.
How long can I use the JoJo?
The JoJo is the only lounger in the marketplace to be just as beneficial for a newborn as it is for an active toddler.
We currently have babes up to 4 years old, and as young as 10 weeks premature, using the JoJo.
The JoJo can be used so long as the torso of the child fits in the center sling (top of shoulders to bottom).
Can I wash the JoJo?
Yes! Both the JoJo cover and the JoJo itself are machine washable. Care instructions appear on each label. We recommend cold cycle and air drying, but in a pinch, tumble dry on cooler settings.
Is the JoJo safe for my baby to sleep in?
Please see our Sleep Guidelines for a full discloser about the JoJo and safe sleep, however, here’s a short answer:
The only environments that the FDA certifies as “safe sleep spaces” are the crib, a bassinet, or a play yard. No infant sleep positioner is safe as a long term sleep solution.
Always attend to baby when using a sleep positioner of any kind.
Can I use the JoJo in the crib?
Safety is our number one, and of course your number one, concern. Because of this, we don’t recommend that the JoJo be used unattended in a crib. The JoJo should be used a supervised sleep environment only.
What about SIDS or suffocation risk?
Please talk to your pediatrician about the best sleep environment for your baby.
Please only use as a tool for aiding sleep development, attended sleep solutions and familiar rest environments. The JoJo does not prevent rolling or decrease or prevent the risk of SIDS or suffocation.
The JoJo is not intended for unsupervised sleep.
The Mompreneur LLC strongly encourages safe sleep practices that caters to each individual family. You can find the AAP’s recommendations on safe sleep practices here, however, please use your own discretion for your family’s sleep solutions. Always consult with your pediatrician for recommendations on safe sleep.
