Hanging Baby Cradles
February 19, 2011 § Leave a comment
A year or so ago I fell in love with the hanging baby cradle by Leander. How can you not? It is a beautiful, Scandinavian design that is simple yet sophisticated. The gentle movement in which the cradle moves lulls a baby to sleep and promotes the babies sense of orientation, an important early development. The suspended cradle can be attached to either the ceiling or a stand, so it can be moved from room to room if needed. Leander products are also made from organic, sustainable materials, healthy for both baby and earth.
Suspended cradles, primarily available only from European manufacturers, have become very popular in Scandinavian countries, but not so in the U.S., or at least yet. Kindekeklein, Knoppa and Hushamock, have similar cradle designs to Leander that are also eco friendly and Kindkeklein makes a hanging twin cradle.
It is years till I have a baby, my precious puppy not included, but a Leander cradle will be the first piece of nursery furniture I get.
