Cocoons for newborns - cutting-edge items indispensable for parents

What it is?

Chest babySuch an unusual thing with the amazing name “baby cocoon” can replace several household items at once. And if the baby will sleep in it, the sleep will be strong, since the child cannot wake himself up with his hands.

This subject was invented by neonatologists from France. Their goal was to prevent the stress that occurs in newborns after it leaves the mother's womb. Outwardly, it resembles a bag with a “window”. Cocoon for a newborn can be crocheted or sewn of soft fabric. Thus, being in a cocoon, the baby feels very comfortable.

The advantages of this interesting subject are that when a child is placed in it, it takes the shape of its body.

Besides:

  • it will be convenient for children in a cocoon to turn, podlyatsya and raise legs;
  • ease of use for adults;
  • esthetics;
  • various designs and shapes.

Cocoon Varieties

Depending on the purpose of use, cocoons for newborns are of two types:

  • for changing clothes and diapers (envelope, pouch);
  • mattress-chaise, placed in the crib (pictured).

First option

Baby envelopeAs mentioned above, it is used as a replacement for swaddling. Although many generations were grown with their help, cocoons are more relevant now. Crochet cocoon for a newborn can be of different sizes. But in order to avoid irritation and allegri, it is better to use only natural threads and fabrics for knitting (sewing).

According to many experts, swaddling makes it difficult to understand the world for newborns, as a tightly wrapped baby in a diaper cannot move freely. Of course, this greatly simplified the lives of parents. But the crumb at the same time does not feel comfortable. Today, if you want the “legs” to be even, use free swaddling or pay attention to the cocoon-envelope (on the picture).

Knitted cocoonKnitted cocoon (or cocoon-envelope) is more convenient to use.It will take a couple of movements, and your baby is already in the bag. It is especially relevant in the winter. Instead of a pile of clothes, which usually in the cold time we put the child on, use a cocoon. And if it is knitted (crocheted, or knitted), it will create an environment resembling the womb of the mother. The child will be not only comfortable, but also warm.

The big advantage of these “devices” is that you can do it yourself. That is very amusing young needlewomen. A knitted or stitched cocoon filled with mother's love will create for the crumb an enveloping sensation of pleasant crampedness. Especially since by “hooking up” with a hook, you can embody a wide variety of schemes, obtaining original patterns or an unusual design.

Cocoons for newborns are knitted not only with crochet, but also with knitting. The principle of knitting is quite simple.
All movements are performed in a circle. Needlewomen even compare the principle of knitting with a sock and a hat. Cocoons for newborns fit in the size of babies. But with a small allowance at the top, as the knitted material is quite elastic.

Second option

Mattress chaise longueCocoon for newborns in the form of a mattress resembles a small bed of ergonomic shape.It can be installed in the crib so that the child sleeps in it. And just on a flat surface as a deckchair, if you want your child to be near you. Mattresses are made of soft material. They are able to take the form of the body of a newborn. Therefore, when the crumbs are placed in such a device, it becomes very comfortable and cozy.

Being in a similar cocoon, the baby is removed from the spine. It is rounded, and the child assumes a posture similar to the intrauterine one.
This allows the baby to relax and happily explore the world and perceive the environment.

The advantages of these ergonomic mattresses include:

  • ergonomic shape reduces the likelihood of colic in newborns;
  • reduces the risk of muscle tone;
  • the lungs are fully saturated with oxygen;
  • due to the elevation in the upper part (under the head), the probability of asymmetry of the child’s head (plagiocephaly) decreases;
  • safety of the baby thanks to the fixing belt;
  • easy to use and carry;
  • dimensions allow you to use a cocoon as a bed, placing it in a crib, as in the photo.

Baby on mattressThese inventions are available in various sizes. Each has its own purpose. For example, small mattresses-cocoons are provided for premature babies. They can be found in the departments of neonatology. There are also bigger mattresses. They can put the children from the moment of birth until 4-5 months. Choosing cocoons for newborns is not difficult. Enough to focus on the product range and age of the baby.

Most young parents prefer similar modern mattresses. Of course, crocheted (knitting) cocoon-envelope is also convenient, but it only replaces diapers and a few items of clothing. But ergonomic mattresses open new opportunities for newborns:

  • the baby sleeps calmly and for a long time, which affects his mood and protects the nerves of the newly minted parents;
  • the child can look around without load on the spine and neck;
  • thanks to the girdle fixing the baby, parents are sure of the safety of the children.
Conversion-cocoon for a newborn is probably the best modern invention of neonatologists.
The sum of all the benefitswhich has a crochet / knitting cocoon, an envelope-cocoon or an ergonomic baby mattress, will not only help the child to develop better, to get acquainted with the world, but also to make life easier for young parents.
