Becoming a parent for the first time, or the fifth time, also comes with many worries and at Little Gummi we don’t think sleep time should be one of them! When ever our newest addition would draw closer to arrival, we always researched and over-thought the bassinets that our Little would go in. This can be cumbersome especially when you live in a studio (that’s us!) so we are really excited to talk about Dad invented Crescent Womb.
there are multiple factors that play in to why we really like the idea of Crescent Womb. One of those factors being the low cost compared to a traditional bassinet or basket. Replacing a bassinet with this neat little baby hammock saves money as well as space. Many of you all know we live in a studio and as a family of four with a German Shepherd, this can be ultimately challenging so saving space through great products like Crescent Womb makes our lives so much easier at Little Gummi.
The hammock simply hooks on to each corner of babies crib, connecting first by a buckle and then pulling to tighten and lastly fastening to secure.
I am not sure exactly what types of cribs the Crescent Womb was tested on, as the photos show only standard sizes, but it works in our Bloom Alma Mini Crib as well as our standard crib and it can be adjusted perfectly to fit either accordingly.
Until speaking to the creative behind the product, I had no idea something like this even existed and I can say it is truly a product I wish we had with our first who is now 2. Flashback to 2014, as Little Gummi began its cultivation and our daughter was born we went through the transition into parenthood without much knowledge of what to expect. We learned as we went and a huge surprise to us was crib safety. We didn’t know until having our daughter that certain things needed to be done to prevent SIDS and babies should use sleep sacks instead of blankets. That stuff was simply not talked about during the hiatus of “congratulations on your new baby!” and surprisingly, around 80% of parents are in that same situation.
Crescent Womb is intended to break the barrier between those uncertainties by providing a safe environment from the start. They do this by creating a technique that is intended to mimic the mothers Womb through the form of a hammock. We know already that during the newborn days (and even beyond) Littles like things that remind them of ‘home’ which is why they are at their utmost peace during a bath or they become calm when hearing cues of Shhh. As soon as Miller hits the ‘Womb’ he goes in to fetal position and just smiles. Keep in mind, Miller is 6 months and rolling and while it isn’t possible for him to roll off or out of this, suggested use is up until the point that baby can roll/crawl/pull up on things.
Crescent Womb works in the same way. It creates a soothing environment that calms baby and ensures ultimate peace of mind for parents. Along with a soothing sleep environment also comes a comfortable climate control through the mesh netting that composes the sleeping part of the hammock. We love all of the benefits with this hammock and its ability to go where we go, which means no routine will go amiss and wherever we are, we will sleep just as well as our Little.
