Question: I heard that sleep positioners can be dangerous as babies can suffocate against them if they roll from their back to their stomach. Is this a risk with the Cocoonababy?
A: The Cocoonababy is not a sleep positioner but an ergonomic mattress. It does not introduce any suffocation risk. The Cocoonababy should only be used from birth until the age of 3 months, or when your baby starts rolling. Before then, babies are physically incapable of turning in the nest in such a way that the sides of the nest could impede their breathing. In addition, the tummy band ensures that babies stay in the correct position in the nest at all times.
Question: What happens when my baby grows out of the Cocoonababy? Is it difficult to transition to a flat mattress?
A: In general, it isn't hard for babies to transition from the Cocoonababy to a flat mattress. A baby needs about 3-4 months to adapt from the nautical space (mother's womb) to the aerial space. When babies start rolling (about 4 months of age) it is a sign that they are old enough to "settle by themselves" and won't have any difficulties in getting to sleep without the help of the Cocoonababy. What you can do to facilitate the transition is take the wedge off when your baby is about 4 months, starts rolling and is effectively growing out of the Cocoonababy. Continue to use the Cocoonababy for nap time (under supervision). At night, start sleeping your baby flat on a mattress. After a few days, you should be able to sleep your baby flat on a mattress for both naptime and night.
Question: Can I reuse the Cocoonababy for my second child?
A: Yes, as long as your Cocoonababy is in good condition and you have followed all the care instructions, you can use it for your second child. The foam cocoon should not be washed as any contact with water or humidity will damage the foam. The waterproof cover of the Cocoonababy and the fitted sheet are both machine washable and must be dried completely before use or storage.
Question: What is the Cocoonababy made of? Is there any harmful or toxic component?
