Soothing and safe rocking in new cradle from BABYBJÖRN
BABYBJÖRN Cradle is designed to lull a baby gently to sleep.
It has a completely unique patented rocking action and every single detail has
been designed with safety in mind. After six years of product development and
testing by families and pediatricians, it is now set for its market launch for
“Babies tend to fall asleep in their prams. My idea was to capture
that same rocking movement. I also wanted to design away all the risks of
sleeping in a cot. Combining this in a single product took time,” explains
BabyBjörn Vice President Andreas Zandrén, who developed the cradle.
Lulls your baby to sleep
The Cradle has a unique
rocking action, which gives a softly sprung movement when rocked by hand or
foot. The cradle also turns your baby’s own movements into soothing rocking that
lulls your baby to sleep.
Secure supervision of your babyEasy to move around your home
is designed to give parents secure supervision of their baby. The cradle’s
transparent mesh fabric and low height make it easy to check that the baby is
sleeping safely and peacefully.
The Cradle is perfect in the
early months when a new-born baby alternates short periods of sleep and
wakefulness. The compact and
light cradle is easy to move from room to
The cradle has been tested by a large number of families in several countries
and its rocking action has been well received. Babies enjoy lying in the cradle
and parents like the fact that babies who wake in the night occasionally rock
themselves back to sleep. The cradle weighs less than six kilos, which makes it
easy to move around and use for daytime naps.
All BABYBJÖRN products are developed in consultation with pediatricians and
experts. While developing the cradle, Andreas Zandrén met American physician
Mark Brandenburg, author of the book “Child Safe” which gives parents
advice on avoiding accidents in the home. Doctor Brandenburg gives this warning
about cradles in his book:
“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
Doctor Brandenburg objects to cradles because they may get stuck at an angle
which can be dangerous for the baby. But he confirms that there is no risk of
this happening with BABYBJÖRN Cradle, as it stands firmly on the floor
and does not rock in the traditional way and so cannot get stuck in any one
position. Furthermore, all sides of the cradle are made of a mesh that the baby
can breathe through.
