Cocoonababy: helping your baby adapt to life on the outside

Written by Tim Barnes-Clay

From womb to world, the Cocoonababy is the perfect gift to your newborn.

It’s such a precious and monumental moment when your baby is first placed in your arms – you’re filled with joy and love for your newborn. For your baby, it’s also a time when they leave behind their snug and warm ‘home’ for the last nine months. The security of their habitual cramped yet comfortable darkness is replaced with bright lights, open space, shapes and movements.

It is completely understandable, then, that after leaving their cosy confines, a baby is startled with how far they can now stretch their limbs.

Introducing the Cocoonababy

This is where the Cocoonababy comes in. It’s suitable from newborn to approximately three months and can be used as a daytime lounger to help ease transition from mummy’s tummy to the outside world. Plus, it can aid baby’s development too.

Welcoming baby gently into the world, the Cocoonababy offers baby a comforting, reassuring, womb-like surrounding through its slightly inclined, semi-foetal cushioning.

Importantly, it can also help limit the onset of some of the most common adaptation difficulties that can upset babies during their first months including reflux, colic and waking with a start, as well as improving the overall quality of their sleep.

Designed with health care professionals and used by thousands of parents worldwide, this safe, lightweight and portable cocoon can be used room-to-room or popped in the car to take out when visiting family or friends near or far.
