For most people, the name “Baby Bjorn” conjures up images of the well-known front-body baby carrier. This Swedish company has branched out into other baby accessories, including the BABYBJORN Cradle, a bassinet suspended between two elegant wooden legs atop sturdy steel bases. Parents love being able to soothe their baby by rocking (or letting the baby’s own movements gently bounce) the cradle. Users also praise the cradle’s lovely, simple and practical design.

What’s so great?

 

Perfect for newborns and babies under 6 months old, the cozy the BABYBJORN Cradle is lightweight and easy to move from room to room. Parents who want to keep a close eye on their tiny tykes appreciate a reassuring view afforded by the cradle’s low height and transparent mesh fabric sides.

In fact, at least one user commented on the advantage of the cradle’s low profile: the ability to see and/or reach in to pick up the baby without even having to climb out of bed. The mesh fabric also allows for plenty of air circulation and lets your baby breathe freely even when his or face is very close to the sides.

Finally, the mesh is removable and washable, as are the cradle’s included mattress and mattress cover. A matching breathable mesh canopy makes a cozy yet sheer covering.

Greenness of the white cradle

Finally, health- and safety-conscious parents felt good about the fact that the cradle’s fitted sheet is made of organic cotton fabric and contains no hazardous substances. Tested and approved in accordance with safety requirements, the BABYBJORN Cradle meets both European and American safety standards.
