Mesh fabric has two major advantages. The first is that your baby can breathe through it if your baby's face is very close to it. The second is that you can see through the fabric, which makes it easy to keep an eye on your sleeping baby.

What is special about the rocking action of the BABYBJÖRN Cradle?

The movement is similar to that of a pram with spring suspension. The cradle is easy to rock in all directions. You can rock the cradle with a gentle hand or foot movements.

The cradle is set in motion by your baby’s movements and a baby who wakes up may lull themselves back to sleep. Some sleep experts claim that children do not sleep as deeply when they are in motion. But the cradle stops rocking once your baby falls asleep, so he or she does not get accustomed to constant movement while asleep.

In what way is the BABYBJÖRN Cradle safe?

The cradle has been developed in consultation with experts, including American doctor and child safety expert Mark Brandenburg. Dr Brandenburg is convinced that the BABYBJÖRN Cradle does not have any of the risks commonly associated with cradles. In his book “Child Safe”, he writes:

 

”Injury occurs when a baby rolls so far to one side that the cradle fails to rock back in the other direction. If the cradle becomes angled to a degree that prevents an infant from moving off the railings, pressure against her chest can become great enough to prevent breathing.”

 

Dr Brandenburg contends that cradles can get stuck at an angle that can be dangerous for the baby. But he confirms that there is no risk of this happening with the BABYBJÖRN Cradle because it stands firmly on the floor and does not rock in the traditional way and so cannot get stuck in one position.

 

In addition, all sides of the cradle are made of a mesh fabric that your baby can breathe through, even if your baby’s face is very close to the side of the cradle.

Why is the BABYBJÖRN Cradle so small?

The compact size of our cradle makes it easy to move, as well as being snug and cosy for your baby, just like being in Mummy’s tummy.

 Babies old enough to sit unaided should not be using a cradle – they can start to climb and even fall out of the cradle. That is why we have made our cradle small – your baby should grow out of it when it is time to move on to a larger bed.
