A good night's sleep is now possible thanks to the ergonomic Cocoonababy Nest for babies designed by French Obstetricians and used at home and by health experts around the world. The Cocoonababy is a unique baby mattress designed for newborns' optimal sleep.
Today the Cocoonababy® is used by thousands of health care professionals (midwives, osteopaths, physiotherapists, psychomotor therapists, etc.) in hospitals, medical and maternity clinics.
Approved by professionals in the neonatal field to assist in the development of premature babies, the Cocoonababy® meets all applicable regulatory requirements (Bedding Decree No. 2000-164 of 23/02/2000 as well as all safety requirements).
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…
There has been a lot of talk in the news the last few days about the rise in the number of babies developing a flat spot on their skull called plagiocephaly. It is an avoidable condition caused by prolonged pressure on the baby’s growing skull, flattening the back of the head. Doctors recommend tummy time to help and encouraging babies to move their heads from side to side. The Cocoonababy Nest helps limit flathead by allowing freedom of movement of your baby’s head within the nest whilst supporting their head, hips, body and neck.
