Hushamok: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

The Hushamok baby hammock ($430) has garnered all kinds of adoration from the interior design world for its unusual shape, but I can't help but wonder if it's too modern for most baby rooms.

It was designed to appear "womb-like" and cradles the child in a washable cotton hammock with a padded base. Would you let your lil one hang in a Hushamok?

I think it looks really cool, but I voted other because it is so expensive! I could make something similar for a lot less!

Darn it, I clicked the wrong one. I like the looks of it. A bit pricey for two months worth of cradling though.

This does look much like the Amby bed, which is supposed to be great. The price however? Not so great.

This doesn't look like a baby could use it for more than a couple of weeks. Not for $430. That's a waste of money for people of any income level.

No thanks. It has more of a decorative purpose than its intended use. After the baby has outgrown it, probably in a month, I guess it can be switched and used as a planter.

A similar bed (the Amby Baby Motion Bed) was a lifesaver for us. My baby refused to sleep anywhere but in my arms until we got the hammock. After that, he started to actually take naps! I don't know about this one, but the one we have is totally safe and is even recommended by Dr. Sears. My son stayed in it until around 9 months, when he wanted to roll over and sleep on his tummy.

Looks kinda dangerous to me. One wrong move and baby's on the floor...No thank you.

The concept is great. In reality, paying $430 for something I could only use for a really short amount of time is ridiculous.
I voted no, but after thinking about it - it might work. But only for the first few months, after that no way jose. Unless you had them swaddled really well. In the apartment I live in now, before I came some people said there were hippies that kept their baby in a hammock, and I mean a real hammock. It does look pretty cool though.
