In New Zealand’s original hanging hammock bed your baby sleeps on their back for day and night sleeps with good airflow and heat regulation. The suspension is moderated by a specially designed steel spring which provides the type of movement babies are used to in-utero and by being carried.
The superior comfort provided by the hammock’s cocoon-like environment and c-curve minimises pressure on your baby’s developing spine and nerve pathways. This baby bed ensures even support instead of an uneven weight concentration on baby’s head, shoulders and pelvis, which can develop into structural problems such as plagiocephaly (flat-head syndrome) in some cases. The slightly raised position of the head and shoulders is helpful to prevent reflux.
The natural New Zealand wool mattress draws moisture away from the body providing warmth in winter and coolness in summer. Our mattress has sufficient length to ensure that there is a padding to protect your baby’s delicate fontanelle, while the combination of baby’s weight and the curves of the bed make it extremely difficult for a new born to roll over once they are placed on their back.
The swivel snap-hook will ensure that any twisting tension is naturally absorbed while our wooden spread bar held in place by cotton ties, keeps the fabric apart. Correct placement maximises the triangular proportions of the hammock and ensures adequate airflow. Our steel spring has an internal safety strap for 100% peace of mind. The baby hammock supports babies from newborn up to 15 kg (33 lbs).
