  • Cocoonababy Nest - Ergonomically Designed for Newborn Babies

    3 During the first few months of a newborn babys life, Cocoonababy the ergonomically shaped nest for babies will reassure your baby and help him or her adapt as well as possible to their new life. Lying in the nest, the baby, having left the boundaries of his mothers womb, feels contained and comforted. The Cocoonababy allows your baby to adopt a semi-foetal, cradled posture with his or her shoulders and spine slightly rounded. This has many advantages including: * It allows your baby to touch their face and mouth like he or she did in the womb giving them reassurance. * It can help reduce gastric reflux. * It can limit the risks of cranial 'flat head' syndrome, commonly caused when baby sleeps on his back on a traditional mattress. * It frees and directs the baby's movement, which can help hand eye co-ordination development. * It can improve the interactivity between the baby and those around him/her. The COCOONaBABY nest comes with: a removable wedge which enables the nest to adapt to the childs size for the first 4 months. a white, made-to-measure Fleur de Coton fitted cotton sheet a Tummy Band which maintains the child in the ideal position yet does not restrict his movements (also available as an accessory). Frequently Asked Questions Q. My health visitor says that babies should lie on a firm surface. The nest seems soft so Im not sure about using it. A. She is quite right a child should not be placed on a soft surface as his body will sink into it. However on a flat, hard surface a baby cannot lie in a cradled posture which reminds him of his mothers womb and reassures him. The Cocoonababy nest is neither soft, flat, nor hard: it is designed in such a way that its base is firm yet its surface soft. This ergonomic design has many advantages: it keeps baby on his back but cradles him, allows him to move his arms and head freely and to interact with those around him. Q. After using the nest for a few days my baby seems to lie more deeply in it. Is this normal? A. This is perfect - This means that the special fabric covering the foam has moulded itself to the shape of the foam. Your baby is really in his nest ! Q. I have noticed that since I bought my Cocoonababy nest you have added a belt is this for safety reasons ? A. In fact we designed this Tummy Band to reassure parents who worried that their baby might roll out of the nest. Although we advise to stop using Cocoonababy nest well before the child could roll out (ie. as soon as baby starts trying to change position in the nest) we decided that since the Tummy Band would not alter the functions of the nest, nor hinder babys movements, it could only enhance the use of the product. It has been validated by the medical profession and in fact the light pressure it makes on babys tummy reassures him too. Q. I read that a child is able to move in the nest but you say that he cant get out of it. A. When we say that a child can move in the nest we mean that he can turn his head and move his arms allowing him to discover his hands. However, during the first months of his life he is unable to roll onto his side or turn over in the nest. Q. You say that the Cocoonababy nest should be used day and night. Is that not too much? A. Thanks to its shape and the materials used to make it, Cocoonababy nest is the only product which can be used day and night for the first months. The posture adopted by your child in the nest has been studied in depth by medical specialists and is the best one for your babys comfort and development. So it is important that baby should be in the nest when he is not in your arms, on a playmat or out for a stroll. It reassures and comforts him, gives him the freedom of movement which encourages his eye-hand development, and allows him to interact with those around him when he is not asleep. Q. I am worried that my baby may slip between the bars of his cot and the sides of the nest? A. There is no risk of this happening so long as you follow the Instructions for use closely and stop using the nest as soon as your child starts trying to change position in the nest. A child is physically incapable of getting out of the nest alone before 3-4 months. Q You seem to find it important that a baby can touch his face in Cocoonababy. Why is this? A. In the womb a baby can touch his face and even suck his thumb. If he is on his back on a flat, hard surface a newborns arms will lie on either side of his head in a 3 branch candlestick posture. He cant touch his face as he hasnt the strength to move his arms upwards and it is said that in this posture babies suffer from "separation anxiety" as they are lying in a space too big for them and they lose their bearings. In the Cocoonababy nest baby can touch his face, mouth and body thereby feeling the limits of his own body. Q. Some mothers say that there are other products on the market made in visco-elastic foam (foam with a memory) which are the same thing as the Cocoonababy nest. A. This is not true. The Cocoonababy nest is not made in visco-elastic foam. It is made from two different kinds of foam, one used for reactivity, the other for comfort. The products made in visco-elastic foam maintain the child in the position in which he is placed on them and are therefore to be avoided until the child has gained his own motor skills (around 4-5 months). The Cocoonababy nest produces the opposite effect: it helps the child move his head and arms at an early stage thus gaining motor skills. Q. Can the nest be placed in a carrycot ? A. No because a carrycot is not deep enough. The sides of the cot or the cradle should be at least 20cms higher than the top of the nest (in conformity with the safety regulations and bedding standard). Q. Can my baby wear a sleeping bag in the Cocoonababy nest ? A. Yes, he can however, choose a small size (65cms maximum) suitable for a baby up to 4 months. A bigger size would be too bulky. Q. My baby seems to be very hot in the Cocoonababy nest. What should I do? A. It is normal that lying in a cradled position your baby will feel warmer than if he is lying flat on his back. Imagine if you yourself were to sit curled up in an armchair, as opposed to sitting on a straight backed chair with nothing around you. Just put less clothes or covers on him and by touching the nape of his neck you will be able to establish if he is too warm or not. Q. I have seen baby beanbags which look as if they are similar to the Cocoonababy nest ? A. No they are not the same. The products which are filled with small polystyrene beads maintain the child in the position in which he is placed (just like memory foam). The effect they have is totally opposite to the advantages procured by the Cocoonababy nest. Q. Can I use the Miracle Blanket to swaddle my baby when he is in the nest ? A. Yes, it is possible to swaddle your child in the Cocoonababy nest. However, a child which starts life in the nest will most probably not need to be swaddled : in fact, the semi-foetal, cradled posture which his body adopts in the nest will help the child to feel secure, prevent him suffering from startle/Moro Reflex (sudden, uncontrolled arm movements) and reduce the chances of his suffering from gastric reflux. It will help him sleep better too. Q. The Cocoonababy nest seems quite small to me. I dont really think my child will be able to use it for four months. A. If you have a big baby, when he gets to 4 months old he may be longer than the nest but this is not a problem. Simply remove the wedge and allow your babys legs to rest on the bottom edge of the nest with his feet over the end. What is important is that at all times baby must not be able to push against anything with his feet and put himself into a hyper-extended posture. Q. I have a cushion I bought to support me during my pregnancy. Couldnt I use it to cradle my baby like the nest during the first few months ? A. Support/feeding cushions are generally filled with polystyrene beads. If you place your child in the centre of the cushion it will effectively make him feel cradled or contained in a small space but he will automatically remain in that posture - which will not necessarily be the right one. Leaving him lying in an incorrect posture for a few hours during the day or during the night is not recommended. Products made from beads can sag so parental surveillance is essential at all times. There is no substitute for the Cocoonababy nest which has evolved through years of medical observation. Q. If I put my baby in the nest during the daytime, how can I distract him? A.You could put the nest onto a play mat with a toy bar on it or put him in his cot with a mobile to look at - but ensure that the toys are level with his feet and not directly above his head. Contrary to usual practice, it is very important that a child lying on his back should have his gaze drawn towards his feet to encourage him to adopt a cradled posture. If his gaze is drawn above his head this encourages a hyper extended posture which is detrimental to his comfort and development. When lying in the nest, baby will also be able to watch the other family members and he will be happy to participate in what is going on around him. Q. On the new model, you have added a Tummy Band. What is its purpose? We all know that the motor skills of a child less than 4 months old would not permit him to get out of the nest. This question, however, is one which is recurrent among first time parents. From now on, the Cocoonababy nest includes a Tummy Band which, thanks to its special design, does not restrict babys movements. It will reassure his parents and baby will feel even happier as this small band has a calming effect! In fact, as does swaddling, it applies the same light pressure on babys tummy as your hand would to appease colic and it incites the child to adopt a centred rather than an extended position. Suitable for 0-3 months Please note delivery may take up to 2 weeks.

  • Moby Wrap

    3 The comfortable and award winning baby carrier. Moby Wrap Baby Carriers are amazingly comfortable and easy to wear. The design uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the weight of your baby. Why we love the Moby Wrap: 100% Cotton Triple-Wrap Design for Safe, Secure Carrying Uses the entire back and shoulders to distribute weight, making it more comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Wide piece of fabric to wrap over both shoulders. Keeps your baby warm while freeing both hands. Develops a strong and secure attachment to parents. Can be used for a preemie to 35 pounds child. Allows you to have skin-to-skin contact with your baby, helping to soothe and calm. Moby Wraps do not put a lot of extra material or bulky padding between you and your baby. Your baby can hear your heartbeat and find comfort in the warmth of your body within its cuddly confines. Designed to keep babies happy, the Moby Wrap emulates the feeling of being carried in your arms. It wraps snugly around babies and secures them with three different sections of fabric, holding them close to the wearer's chest (mums, dads or carers). This gives infants the ergonomically-correct postural support that they need. When it's time for baby to sleep, one of the shoulder fabric panels can be used to support the back of baby's head for comfort. This makes it an ideal accessory for busy moms and dads that keeps your baby close and happy while on the go. It uses ultra-soft, 100 percent cotton fabric to securely hold babies, providing them with the support they need. The Moby Wrap also keeps you comfortable: it is free of straps and buckles, evenly distributing baby's weight across your body to prevent discomfort and fatigue. The Moby Wrap is long enough to fit all sizes of baby wearers and babies - preemie to 35-pounds. The Shoulder Support Prevents Discomfort and Fatigue: With no straps, buckles or other fasteners, the Moby Wrap is exceptionally comfortable to wear. Unlike carriers with straps that can dig into your shoulders, the Moby Wrap envelops your entire back and both shoulders keeping you comfortable. It also evenly distributes weight across your back and hips to make it easier to carry your baby for long periods without fatigue. In addition, the wrap can be adjusted to fit nearly any body type and size. It Promotes A Strong Bond with your Baby: The Moby Wrap helps promote a strong, close relationship between adults and babies. Its design mimics the natural way of holding a baby and permits skin-to-skin contact with your infant. The Moby Wrap features tapered ends to eliminate unnecessary fabric bulk. It also provides an effective means of soothing fussy or cranky infants: babies feel safer when they feel the warmth of your body and hear your heartbeat. With a Moby Wrap, even the busiest parents can bond with their babies and give them the care, warmth, and intimacy that they deserve. It's Stylish, Durable, and Easy to Clean: Moby Wraps are available in a variety of styles, including prints, solid colors, and designs. If we don't have the one you want in stock, we can order it for you within a short time (just add your choice to the comments box). The fabric is 100 percent breathable cotton with ideal one-way stretch. The Moby is also machine washable and was made with extra length to ensure a good fit even after washing and shrinkage. It is designed to hold children from 8 to 35 pounds. The design of the Moby Wrap uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the weight of your baby. Unlike other carriers, which have narrow straps or go across one shoulder, the Moby Wrap is a wide piece of durable fabric that is wrapped over both shoulders. It is amazingly comfortable and easy to wear. There are no buckles, snaps or other fasteners (that may break or bend). It is easy to adjust the fit of your Moby Wrap by varying how tightly you wrap yourself and baby. Moby Wraps are one size which means all caregivers can easily and comfortably share one wrap.In a Moby Wrap, baby is secured by three sections of fabric for triple wrapped security. A Moby Wraps one-way stretch cotton and wide width ensure that your baby is held close and tight. When sleeping, the back of your babys head can also be secured under the cotton fabric for added safety. You can finally have both hands free and know your baby is safe and secure. Each Moby Wrap comes with an easy to follow full-color instructional booklet containing wrapping instructions and safety information. "Moby Wrap is a must have for not only moms who want to get laundry done and for baby wearing mamas, but also for the mothers of babies with special needs...who NEED the extra security of being wrapped. Babies who NEED mom close. Who NEED to hear mom's heartbeat. Who NEED to heal. My baby falls into this last category and I firmly believe her recovery and overall well-being was a result of a good combination of Faith, Hope, Love and the Moby Wrap." - Stephanie "I absolutely love my Moby Wrap! I got it as a gift when I was pregnant with my second child. I would say it is a must for Mommies with more than one child! It has saved my day a million times! And it is the only "carrier" that does not kill my back after a long period of time." - Allison "I am so in love with my Moby Wrap! My daughter and I have used it non-stop since we got it, because it's so much easier than lugging around a stroller. We have the freedom to stop into an antique shop or hike around the woods for a bit, and she gets to experience everything first hand! Plus, my husband (who wears a 2X) can wear it too, and of the numerous wraps/carriers we tried, this is the only one that they were both comfortable with. We couldnt have half the fun we do without our wrap. Thank you!!!" - Heather"Just put my daughter in my new Moby Wrap for the first time. She fell asleep immediately and it feels so much better on my back than my other baby carrier!" - Andrea"I get to use my fuchsia Moby with my second daughter coming in March! I've had it since my first daughter was born and love it! Thanks for making such a great product!" - Amanda Instructions for use: http://www.mobywrap.com/instructionpages.aspx?Topic=instructionvideos
