In the beginning you don't need a crib, in fact one of the worlds most respected authorities on infants, Dr. William Sears (M.D) recommends the use of a baby hammock as the natural swinging, rocking and bouncing motion induces sleep and keeps babies asleep longer. Unlike adults, babies are triggered to sleep by motion; haven't you noticed how your baby during pregnancy sleeps while you're active and then loves to kick you in the ribs when you're lying down at night.
The difference between a baby hammock and other nursery furniture, including cribs or a baby bassinet, is the way the baby is supported. Before a baby is born, they are cozy and squished in the womb where they experience a lot of movement. Once born, sleep in flat and static surfaces such as cribs and baby bassinets can be challenging for babies since they are accustomed to a warm womb-like environment. Hushamok's baby hammock has been designed to mimic this womb-like environment for newborn sleep. Our innovative leafspring is unique to Hushamok and provides a gentle rhythmic rocking motion that helps newborn babies sleep better and longer.
We believe they're even safer than cribs. A study on carbon dioxide rebreathing in infants from the University of Otago in New Zealand shows that baby hammocks have virtually no carbon dioxide build up which is what it believed to be one of the causes in SIDS. Because of the natural motion of the hammock, carbon dioxide does not become trapped around the baby, which when re-breathed is said to cause the deadly acidosis. The 100% organic cotton contributes to a healthy sleeping environment for newborn sleep. For optimum results we recommends baby is swaddled while in the hammock. Hushamok use is in line with the recommendations in the prevention of SIDS that babies should ALWAYS be placed on their backs.
The Hushamok baby hammock has not been treated with any fire retardant chemicals. Our mattress cover is made from cotton. The natural cotton is un-dyed providing the most natural eco-friendly sleep for your baby.
Hushamok baby hammocks offer a natural soothing motion, it is an undulating movement that gently rocks babies to sleep. This movement helps babies fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer . Hushamok does not recommend using any pillows, wedges or positioners in the baby hammock as these may pose a suffocation risk to baby. Hushamok recommends swaddling, and if that doesn't agree with your baby that's not a problem. Our four-point leafspring means that the hammock cannot tilt so you and your baby can explore to find the perfect sleep spot.
Yes, our baby hammock is designed for both day and night sleeps. The more a baby uses the hammock, the more they learn to self-soothe and go to sleep unaided.
