While some moms resort to putting the pedal to the metal to put their lil ones to sleep, others swear by their swings. One New Zealand mom has a new twist on lulling our tots to sleep with the Miyo Baby Hammock ($200) that simulates the natural swaying motion babies tend to love. The 100 percent cotton hammock can be hung from the ceiling or attached to a stand to cradle babies up to nine months old, forcing them to lay on their backs, thus encouraging proper spine development and reducing the risk of SIDS. The soft cotton is also supposed to reduce the possibility of flat heads that are commonly found on children who spend a significant amount of time on their backs.
Would you put your tots in such a baby hammock if you knew it would ease them to sleep?
