Besides being a beautiful and stylish addition to the nursery (just look at these baby nest designs) and providing a cozy spot for your newborn, a baby nest is actually a product with many versatile and beneficial purposes.
So, you might be asking yourself if a baby nest is necessary? Why use a baby nest? What are baby nest benefits?
Today we bring you 5 really great reasons which will make you consider adding a baby nest to your baby shopping list.
1. BABYNEST CREATES A FEELING OF SAFETY
You baby lived for 9 months in a cozy and comfortable surrounding. When born, the environment around your newborn becomes much larger and therefore, unfamiliar. It is important to make sure your baby still feels safe and that can be difficult at the beginning. Baby nest in a way mimics this cozy cocoon that babies love. It gives them a feeling of safety and familiarity that is essential to them.
Important note: make sure to always place your baby on the back and keep an eye on your baby even when in the nest.
2. BABYNEST IS A MULTI-PURPOSE PRODUCT
Baby nest is that one spot where all these activities can comfortably take place. You can easily place your baby nest on the couch, table, bed, floor or in the pram and place your baby in for a quick nap or simply to lounge in. It is also a great spot for nap changes! Playtime is also fun in the baby nest as your little one can be active but will not fall or roll over. You can also place the baby nest under the baby gym as some extra support in the first months. The bottom of the nest can be opened so this is one of those products that your child can use for a long period of time for different purposes.
3. BABYNEST “GROWS” WITH YOUR BABY
The bottom of the EcoViking baby nest can be opened, allowing your baby to fit the nest as he/she grows. The top and the sides will remain in place, providing safety and comfort for your little one. Therefore, a baby nest is one of those products that your child can use for a long period of time for different purposes. We call this a smart investment!
4. BABYNEST IS LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASILY TRANSPORTABLE
If you are a parent already, you know how important it is to have baby gear that is easy to pack and transport, especially when you are alone with your baby. Baby nest can be easily packed and transported in the car or even in the stroller basket which means you can take it with you when visiting family and friends or when traveling. EcoViking baby nest comes with a practical traveling bag making it simple to take to the beach or to the park for a picnic. This was your baby’s fave spot (after your arms, of course!) is always with you.
5. BABYNEST COMES WITH REMOVABLE AND WASHABLE COVER
