Kanoe Baby Hammock: Leave Your Baby Hanging

09/25/2008 at 08:00 AM ET

When a five-month-old baby awakens from a nap as a result of some noise or another from her big (and loud!) brother, chances are pretty good that she won’t be very happy. Unless she’s sleeping in a Kanoe Baby Hammock ($290) in which case it seems that chances are good that the gentle bounce of the hammock will simply lull her back to sleep. I can’t even tell you how many times some loud noise causes my daughterto stir and then I look up to see the Kanoe Baby Hammock bouncing herslowly back to sleep (the weight of the baby in the hammock createssoothing, gentle bounces — just like if a baby were in your arms andyou gently rocked them back to sleep).

Ever since we hung the Kanoe Baby Hammock in our home, our baby has hadsome extremely peaceful naps. Not only is it breathtakingly gorgeous,it’s also delightfully useful with my now-8-month-old daughter. It’s even a perfect place to put my daughterwhen she’s awake and I need to pop her down somewhere safe for amoment. She calms down as soon as I put her in and it gives me a secondto do whatever it is I have to do.

The Kanoe Baby Hammock is made from certified 100% organic cottoncanvas and dyed with low-impact, non-toxic dyes — important to knowwhen you will be placing your baby in it. Installation is prettysimple: locate a ceiling stud, screw in the supplied eye lag(you get two of them with your hammock and can buy more sothat the hammock can be moved to many locations — even outside!), clipon the hammock, and it’s good to go. The straps are simple to adjustand if you have a colicky baby, you can even set the hammock at anincline to give them some relief.

Another amazing feature is that it can support weights of up to 50pounds (and more, once the spring is removed) so an older child can use it- an investment that will really grow with your child. Can youimagine how much a toddler would love climbing into a hammock fornaptime?
