Surface washing is a simple way to care for your toys. Just use a damp cloth to spot clean your item. We also recommend surface washing for toys that have a squeaker, rattle, or musical appliance inside. 

Unfortunately, if these types of toys are washed in a washing machine, they will become water-logged. We do not recommend any other alternatives to washing your item beyond what is stated on the tags. 

Seven years from the date of manufacture. Major manufacturers adhere to a seven year "expiration date" from the date of manufacture to insure that changes by automakers in seat technology, as well as advances in child car seat technology, work together to enhance child safety. Please check your car seat for the date.

The newborn sling is suggested for use up to 3 months. However, should the child be able to have controlled body movements prior to that (such as rolling),  we recommend that you discontinue use of the sling. 

The reclining side of the tub can be used until the child has the ability to sit up (an average of 8 months old) Discontinue use of reclining end once child is able to pull up to a sitting position and begin to use the upright toddler seat at opposite end instead.

The tub, in any stage, is recommended for children under 25 pounds. Once the child reaches 25 pounds, we recommend discontinuing use of this tub. It ultimately is up to the parent to gauge their child's development and decide when to move the child between the 3 stages of use.

Feeding Tray: The feeding tray is top rack dishwasher safe. Use normal settings. Do not use high temperature setting (sani-cycle). You can also wash the feeding tray in warm water using a mild liquid soap and rinse thoroughly with clean water.

Seat cushions: The fabric side can be cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge using mild liquid soap. Wipe with clean water, and then wipe dry or let air dry. 
For machine cleaning: Remove the seat cushions and wash in cold water on gentle cycle. Do not use chlorine-based bleach. Tumble dry low or hang to dry. Do not dry clean. Do not iron.

Straps and Safety Harness: Clean with a damp cloth or sponge using a mild liquid soap. Wipe with clean water and then wipe dry or let air dry. For machine cleaning: Remove the straps and safety harness completely from the seat. Machine wash in warm water on gentle cycle. Do not use chlorine-based bleach. Hang to dry. Do not dry clean. Do not iron.

Seat and base: Wipe surface with a damp cloth or sponge using mild liquid soap. Wipe with clean water. Air dry.

It is important to thoroughly clean all parts of the pump according to the product instructions.

The tubing does not need to be cleaned. Only air passes through the tubes, and if water gets inside the tubing it will ruin the pump motor. To clean the exterior of the tubing use a clean damp cloth and wipe clean.

In addition to cleaning, mom should also gently lift the end of the flapper immediately before every pumping session. This simple step helps ensure that the flapper can move freely for optimum effectiveness.

Please note, the JJ Cole Bundleme has been fully tested and meets all applicable physical, mechanical, chemical, and flammability requirements. Beyond that, every car seat manufacturer has different stipulations regarding the use of after-market accessories. Please consult your car seat manual or contact the manufacturer directly for further information.

The Bundleme can be machine washed. It must be laundered correctly in order to ensure longevity of the product. Please be sure to follow washing instructions on the care content label and/or those listed below for your particular product: 
Down Bundleme: Machine wash cold separately. Tumble dry low. 
Knit Bundleme: Machine wash warm separately. Tumble dry low. 
Original Bundleme: Machine wash warm separately. Tumble dry low.
Polar Bundleme: Machine wash warm separately. Lay flat to dry.
Urban Bundleme: Machine wash warm separately. Tumble dry low.

There are no specific temperature recommendations for the Bundleme.  The Original Bundleme and the Urban Bundleme are both intended to be used in place of a coat or snow suit in cold winter conditions. They have the same function and are intended to be used in comparable temperature ranges.

The Frog Pod and the Whale Pod both attach to the bathtub wall with either super-strong adhesive strips or screws. You may choose which option to use. We also offer a suction cup option as well as a silicone adhesive option, both sold separately.

The amount of weight the Frog Pod or Whale Pod can hold varies, depending on the mounting option used. The adhesive strip option will hold up to 10 pounds of toys and accessories and the screw-mounting option will hold up to 20 pounds. The suction cup option will hold up to 5 pounds and the silicone adhesive option will hold up to 10 pounds.

The Frog & Whale Pods come with four super-strong adhesive strips already attached to the wall bracket. This unique adhesive creates a semi-permanent bond that will withstand moisture. The adhesive can be removed and will not leave any residue on wall surfaces.

The adhesive strips and the suction cups both require a smooth, flat surface for mounting. Acrylic, glass, and fiberglass surfaces, as well as ceramic tile, are ideal for mounting the Frog and Whale Pods using the adhesive strips or the suction cups.

The adhesive will not stick to silicone tile, estimated to be 2-3% of all household tile. When using either the adhesive strips or the suction cups, avoid surfaces that are textured, pebbled, or uneven, as well as surfaces with very small tiles. It is also important to avoid mounting the Frog Pod or Whale Pod on a curved surface, such as in the corners of fiberglass showers.
