Nest Baby Bed
Clever yet simple baby bed and travel
cot in one, suitable from birth to 1 year.
parents who, with a sleeping baby, have paced darkened rooms for hours,
night after night, only to find baby wakes the minute we stopped, this
is truly one of those "I wish we'd known about these when our
children were small" products. Designed to create a womb-like
environment for babies, to help them to sleep easily and peacefully
in the first months and year. When we came across this product we did
a bit of research and found a wealth of glowing parent testimonials,
some of which you can read here.
The designer of these "baby hammocks"
came up with the idea when trying to cope with a colicky baby. Natures
Nest is the only baby bed designed to replicate baby's sensations in
the womb. The bed cradles the baby in a three-quarter lying position,
like the position adopted by babies throughout most of their time in
the womb, and like the postion that you cradle baby in when holding
her. It provides a snug and secure environment, with gentle vertical
bouce and a swinging motion, that will give the sensation of floating
and, we imagine, simulate the sensations felt by baby in the womb as
the mother moves about.
As your baby moves, the bed will move with him, soothing him and often
lulling him back to sleep. The motion might be expected to soothe baby
when he is uncomfortable and reduce unnecessary night time waking. The
Natures Nest will fit into the smallest rooms. It can be next to your
bed and hangs just below bed height to enable you to see your baby and
your baby to see you!
Once in the Natures Nest, it is virtually impossible for your baby
to turn onto her tummy, so baby is kept in the recommended sleeping
position, on her back. Natures Nest provides an opportunity for your
baby to have a more gentle transition from the womb to the outside world,
before being expected to sleep in a conventional, flat and static bed.
Nest is easily portable and comes with its own travel bag. The cots
weigh just 10Kg (22lb) and are easy to assemble. Baby sleeping in her
own familiar bed rather than in an unfamiliar travel cot is likely to
make for a more peaceful visit away!
The Amby Natures Nest meets relevant safety standards in the EU and
USA. Click here for more information
provided by the manufaturer. These baby hammocks can be found in hospital
neonatal units, nurseries and other places where a soothing environment
for even very fragile babies is helpful.

babies you can buy a a heavier duty spring for babies up to 40lb. If
your baby is older than newborn he will still enjoy the soothing sleep
environment of Nature's Nest.

Quality, machine washable sleeping
We discovered lambskin fleeces quite late on when our second child was
still co-sleeping. We found that his lambskin helped him move to more
independent sleeping. These make a lovely gift for a new baby or new
These lambskins are of the best quality, specially
prepared for infant use. The natural properties of lamb fleece reconcile
temperature differences, keeping baby cool in summer and warm in winter.
Being soft and warm to the touch lambskin is comforting for the baby,
perhaps helping baby to relax and sleep peacefully. Lambskin allows
the skin to 'breathe' and is naturally bacteriacidal and dirt repellent.
