The cradle has a gentle springy movement similar to that of a pram. You can easily rock the cradle with your hands or feet, but it will also respond to the child's own movements.
This modern cradle facilitates supervision of your baby. The mesh fabric and the low height mean that you can watch your child sleeping securely in the cosy cradle.
The cradle is ideal for the first few months when your baby will sleep little but often. It is light and compact so you can easily move it around the home, from room to room. The Cradle enables you to be near your child at all times – day and night.
A modern cradle with a stable construction. Protective anti-slide pads will prevent the cradle from moving around and protect the floor.
The sides of the cradle are made from soft and airy mesh fabric. As this allows the baby to breathe through the fabric, you need not worry if the baby's face is close to the sides of the cradle. You do not need to buy a crib bumper for the cradle because the sides are made entirely of fabric – there are no bars or loose parts to trap tiny hands or feet.
The airy mesh fabric of the cradle and canopy allows air to circulate freely. The springy movement is gentle and controlled. There are no loose parts. This is what we call safe design.

Andreas Zandrén, the then Head of Product Development at BabyBjörn, was entrusted with developing a new cradle that was functional, intelligently designed but, above all, safe. This task was a real challenge and many ideas were considered before the development team had finally produced a prototype that met all of the strict requirements.
During the development phase, Andreas had read American physician Mark Brandenburg's book "Child Safe", which gives handy tips to parents on how they can prevent their children from hurting themselves at home. The book included a special warning about cradles and mentioned the scarcity of safe cradles which were available on the market. Andreas asked Dr. Brandenburg to meet him and take a look at his prototype.
Doctor Brandenburg welcomed Andreas into his home in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He examined the prototype and was actually impressed – its unique design solved the biggest safety issue!
Doctor Brandenburg contends that the greatest risk with cradles is that they can get stuck at an angle that can be dangerous for the baby. But this cradle stood firmly on the floor, did not have a traditional rocking movement and so could not get stuck in any one position. Furthermore, this solution also created a gentle and soothing rocking movement that would help the baby to fall asleep.
After Andreas and his team had made some minor changes suggested by Doctor Brandenburg, the cradle was finally ready to be launched. After six years of product development, the proud development team was finally able to introduce the new BABYBJÖRN Cradle to babies and parents around the world.
