COCOONABABY, THE BABY'S NEST FOR A BETTER START IN LIFE
Good night's sleep is now possible thanks to this ergonomic 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' day time and night time optimal sleep.
The Cocoonababy® was created in 1995 by Daniele Salducci, a paediatric physiotherapist at the Early Medico-Social Action Centre in Marseille, France.
By observing the needs of the babies she was treating, Daniele Salducci, started to design and make mattresses which would enable newborns to make movements similar to those made inside their mother’s womb.
The initial stage was to medically research and to determine a posture for the premature baby which could be described as a ‘follow-up womb'. The parameters were based on the vital functions (heart, oxygenation, and respiration), the sleep patterns and the level of the influence of stress on various pathologies. The second stage was the postural research. The ‘follow-up womb’ posture is determined by the support given, the way the baby is held tightly or ‘contained’ and the curled up posture of the child’s body.”
Daniele Salducci and the team soon realised that the benefits reaped by the premature babies would also apply to full-term babies. After several more years of research and a partnership with RED CASTLE®, these nests are now available internationally for use at home.
