Real nest of enlightenment and comfort, the Cocoonababy® nest reassures babies and help them adapt smoothly to life after birth. While respecting the medical recommendation to sleep babies on their back, the elongated semi-fetal position in the Cocoonababy® nest allows babies who have lost their known landmarks in the womb of their mother to feel safe and content. This position present many advantages, including improving the quality and length of time of your baby's sleep.
Until now, there has been no way to simulate the feeling a newborn experiences in its mother’s womb. The Cocoonababy® Nest gives your baby the best start in life. Watch this video to find out how...
HOW DOES THE COCOONABABY® NEST PROMOTE SUCH DEEP SLEEP?
A feeling of peace and calm, in a space reminiscent of the mother’s womb…
Thanks to the enveloping shape of the ergonomic nest, your baby lies in a semi-foetal position, which helps to reassure baby and promotes deep sleep.
The contact of baby’s shoulders and arms against the cocoon limits the effect of the Moro (‘startle’) reflex, preventing unnecessary disturbances during your baby’s natural sleep cycles.
A combination of supportive and reactive foams, allowing baby to move freely and safely (unlike memory foam)…
Freedom of head movement limits the risk of plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome).
A comfortable body alignment — especially the head, hips and shoulders…
The cocoon’s slightly inclined position helps prevent and relieve symptoms of gastric reflux and colic, while the positioning of the hips and knees is ideal for baby’s physical development.
When baby is awake, the slight incline also encourages interaction between you and your baby, as they don’t stare directly up at the ceiling.
An ergonomic design that evolves as baby grows…
The cocoon ‘ wedge’ is repositionable with simple velcro fastenings and can be easily adjusted as baby grows, then later removed when it is no longer necessary.
A perfectly hygienic mattress…
The Cocoonababy® foam is protected by two removable, breathable and washable covers: A waterproof protective cover, and a fitted cotton sheet.
WHEN TO USE THE COCOONABABY® NEST?
The Cocoonababy® Nest will accompany your baby during every sleepy moment, at bedtime or naptime, at home or away, by providing the ideal environment for peaceful sleep and optimal physical development.
Look at the position of the baby in and out of the nest. It is clear to see that the baby’s position in the nest is optimal for both comfort and support.
