Nature’s Sway Baby Hammock (Healthy Magazine Favorite)
Moms we talked to said this was more of a necessity than a luxury. A specially designed steel spring provides the type of movement babies are used to in-utero and by being carried. It also provides a cocoon-like environment that minimizes pressure on the baby’s developing spine and nerve pathways. Made in New Zealand, the special wool mattress material provides air flow and heat regulation.
