Once a child is born, it initially feels deprived of the protective mechanism and the feeling of security from the womb which is why rocking in the Koala baby hammock gently and quickly lulls your baby to sleep, gives comfort and security, and promotes baby's sense of balance. Further, the hammocks snug shape helps your baby to learn hand/foot co-ordination, and, by taking weight of baby's tummy, provides relief when s/he has trapped wind. In order to optimally take advantage of this positive effect, it is not recommended to use any stiff / hard underlays in the hammock.
Guaranteed mobility: The Koala baby hammock is suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use, as a nightime sleeping solution, as a travel crib, as a daytime napping place, or simple rocker. The hammock cords can also be adjusted so that baby's head lies higher than it's legs, enabling them to be able to look out of the hammock.

Why babies belong in hammocks: Every doctor and most parents know: Babies are born with a round back. The medical term is total kyphosis, a curvature of the spine, which basically has adapted perfectly to the space available within the womb. During the first year, the spine straightens until the child starts to stand up and begins to walk. But nevertheless - in particular since the industrial revolution and, later on, modernization - it has become normal for most parents in Western countries to put their babies into a position,in which the spine is straightened contrary to its natural, healthy curvature, in particular in the first few months following birth: Babies lie in beds on straight, hard mattresses. Just take a short glance at a hammock and you will realize that on a hammock you lie in a different position than in bed.
If a hammock has the correct size and quality and is hung up properly, it adapts to the natural shape of the body and evenly supports all parts of the body, which means that you do not just lie on your shoulders and pelvis as is the case when lying in bed. Furthermore, both doctors and midwifes have observed that hammocks are good for the development of the sense of balance and they ease troubles relating to flatulence and general tension. In particular new-borns love being in tight surroundings and bumping into a soft boundary with their little heads and bodies. If, at the same time, they rock gently, they feel as safe and protected as in the womb. So throw out traditional baby beds and let your babies enjoy softly swinging, ergonomically advantageous hammocks.
