Are Hushamok Baby Hammocks Safe?
Hushamok use is in line with the recommendations in the prevention of SIDS and babies should ALWAYS be placed on their backs. Medical studies that have shown that baby hammock have virtually no carbon dioxide build up which is what it believed to be one of the causes in SIDs. Because of the natural motion of the hushamok the co2 is not trapped around the baby which when re-breathed is said to cause the deadly acidosis. The 100% natural cotton material and hypoallergenic poly-filled mattress contributes to a healthy sleeping environment for babies. The natural balance and motion of the hammock sometimes means baby can shift in the hammock. Hushamok recommends baby is swaddled to minimize babies movement. Should baby slide to the side of the hammock simply reposition baby so that he/she lies in the center of the Hammock.
