Frequently asked questions about the Wrapper

  • What are the draw strings for on the Wrapper?

    By tightening the draw strings, you can easily make a hood. Babies namely loose most of their heat via their heads. Please make sure that the draw strings are stowed away correctly in the special pockets.

  • Isn't the Wrapper too warm to use in the summertime?

    No, the Wrapper isn't too warm for the summer. An important characteristic of fleece is that it regulates heat so your baby will never get too warm.

  • Why are there no holes in the Wrapper New born and Original for use in a car seat?

    At Lodger safety always comes first. If the Wrapper were to be fitted with holes to fasten the seatbelt belts through, the Wrapper would no longer comply with the safety regulations a play mat must comply with. Furthermore, in the event of an accident you must be able to remove your child from the car seat in two operations, and this is why the Wrapper is not meant to be used in a car seat because you would need to carry out too many operations in order to get the child out of the car.

  • I can't choose between the Wrapper made of fleece and the Wrapper made of cotton.

    They are two different products which complement one another greatly.
    The Wrapper cotton is primarily designed as a wrap cape to keep your child warm while feeding or during a maternity visit. You can also use the Wrapper as a play mat in the play pen.
    The fleece Wrapper is larger and is designed to keep your baby warm when travelling in the cot and is also ideally suited as play mat for indoors or outdoors.

  • Does my child need to wear a jacket if I go outside with them in the Wrapper?

    In principle, the Wrapper replaces your child's jacket. Because the Wrapper is easy to open and close you can regulate the child's temperature quite well. If you go outside with the Wrapper you do not need to dress your child extra warmly. If it is nice weather outside you may also partially fold open the Wrapper. Because the Wrapper is made with 100% polyester knitted fleece, the material has a very high level of air permeability and good heat regulation.

  • How do I wash my Wrapper?

    The Wrapper is easy to wash. Do not use bleach or softeners. Tumble dry, low temperature. Do not iron. We advise you to close the velcro tape before you wash.

Frequently asked questions about the Bunker

  • Is a Bunker not too warm in the summertime?

    This four season foot muff consists of two parts. A soft, removable inner lining (Booster) and a warm outer layer. By using the two layers together or separately the Bunker is suitable for many different weather conditions. On cold, harsh winter days, you use them both together. If it's a bit less cold, you can use just the fleece foot muff without the inner lining. Is all you need a soft little seat for in the summertime, then you can use only the inner lining. The Bunker is made of knitted fleece, which is especially developed for Lodger and uniquely permeable to air and breathes well.

  • Can the Bunker be used in any pram or buggy?

    The Bunker is a universal foot muff and can be used in any pram or buggy with a 5-point harness. In this way, you can make extra long use of the Bunker, because when you go from using a pram to a buggy you can keep using the same Bunker.

  • What are the draw strings for on my Bunker?

    By pulling on the draw strings you can fashion a hood. Babies loose most of their heat via their heads. By simply drawing the strings, and placing them in the special pockets, you can safely cover your baby's head so that he is protected against the cold weather whenever necessary. When it is cold, your baby can always be safe and warm in their foot muff.

  • How long can I continue using a Bunker?

    Because the Bunker is a universal and multifunctional foot muff, you can use it for a very long time. When you are no longer using the pram and your child is still in the buggy, you can still use your foot muff in it. As long as your child is still in a buggy, you can guaranteed enjoy the Bunker. Compare this with other foot muffs, which you can only use for a few months or a year.

  • What is the difference between the Bunker and other foot muffs?

    The Bunker is a variation on the Wrapper which uses the same wrap method. Using this simple wrap method the Bunker can easier to use than other foot muffs with for example zippers. To place your child in the buggy, all you have to do is fold over the fleece parts and your child is in place. The whole Bunker opens and closes easily with Velcro; no grabbing for shoes, socks or pieces of biscuits. And when you go inside, all you need to do is open the Bunker up.

Frequently asked questions about the Hopper

  • Why are there three closers on the zipper of the Hopper?

    With the three-way zipper you can create openings for use in the car seat or create an opening for easily changing your baby's nappy.

  • How do I use the Hopper in a car seat?

    By not closing the lower zipper all the way, an opening is created at the bottom which you can enter the safety belt through. A second opening can be created on the top, by leaving space free between the other two zippers.

  • What does the TOG logo mean on the packaging?

    TOG indicates the thickness of the material. The higher the TOG value, the warmer the product. The Hopper Sleeveless has a TOG value of 1. This means that it is suitable for a room temperature between 21 and 24 degrees Celsius. The Hopper Sleevess has a TOG value of 2,5. This means that it is suitable for a room temperature between 13 and 18 degrees Celsius. You can increase the TOG value by let your child wear pajamas or a by using a blanket as the Lodger Dreamer.

     

     

     

Frequently asked questions about the Bubbler

Frequently asked questions about the Shelter

  • Why carry my child in a horizontal position?

    During the first 3 to 4 months of the baby's life, its head puts too much load on the baby's neck and back. By carrying the child in a horizontal/foetal position the body is optimally supported. The baby feels safe and comfortable in the foetal position and because of the direct contact with the parent. Physical contact is not only important for bonding with the parent, but also for the development of the baby's brain and endocrine system.

  • What can I use the Shelter for?

    The Shelter is a multifunctional baby sling and wrap cape for the car seat in one. You can use the Shelter as a baby sling immediately after birth until the age of around 5 months. Once your child is able to sit upright, you can use the Shelter as a hip carrier (until approximately 18 months/12 kg). Additionally, until 12 months, the Shelter can be used as a comfortable wrap cape for in the car seat instead of a jacket or blanket.

  • From what age can you use the Shelter?

    The Shelter can be used directly after birth (minimum weight 3.5 kg) as a baby sling and from the moment your child can sit upright until around 18 months (12 kg) as a hip carrier. The Shelter can also be used as a wrap cape for in the car seat until around the first year.

  • What are the draw strings for on the bottom of the Shelter?

    Using the draw strings, the shape of the Shelter can be easily adjusted and be made bigger or smaller. This way you always have the best fit for your baby when you use the Shelter as a baby sling. From the very first day you can therefore already carry your little one against your chest. When your child grows, you can loosen the draw strings.

  • I am due in the summer, which Shelter should I buy?

    This depends on how you wish to use the Shelter. The Shelter is a multifunctional baby sling which can be used from birth as a carrier and as soon as your child can sit upright as a hip carrier (until approx 18 months). Furthermore, you can also use the Shelter as a wrap cape for in the car seat until around the first year. The Shelter Fleece is primarily suitable to be used outdoors and the Shelter Cotton for use indoors and during the warmer months outdoors as well.

  • If I use the Shelter as a baby sling, do I still need to support my baby?

    No, you do not need to give your baby extra support.

  • Why do the security belts of the car seat go over the Shelter and not under/through the fleece/cotton?

    Our products are tested extensively with regard to safety and comfort by renowned testing organisations. According to the safety regulations, in the event of an accident you must be able to remove your child from the car seat in two operations. Unlocking the safety belt is the first operation and removing your child from the car seat is the second operation. The Shelter therefore complies with the security regulations (EN:13209-2:2005 norm for baby slings), because the safety belts of the car seat are fastened over the Shelter.

  • My baby slides down in the Shelter, will he suffocate in this way?

    If your baby slides down in the Shelter, you must tighten the draw strings located at the bottom of the Shelter in order to adjust the fit of the carrier to your baby. You do not have to worry that your child will suffocate in the Shelter because the material is highly permeable to air. By way of a test, you can try blowing through the fleece/cotton fabric. If you have questions about the Shelter or any other products you can always contact our customer service via customerservice@lodger.com or call: 0031 (0)348-407172

  • How do I wash my Shelter?

    The Shelter is easy to wash. Close the safety clasp before washing. Do not use bleach or softeners. Tumble dry, low temperature.

  • What does the TUV logo mean at the packaging of the Shelter?

    TUV is an international testing and certification mark that products test for safety. When a product has come through the strict inspection, the logo may be used. The TUV logo on the packaging of a baby carrier indicates that the product is approved and safe to use.
