    Mawok Hammock for Baby

    Mawok Hammock for Baby Home GadgetBabies like to wake up when you’re transfering them from your arms to the cradle. A product from a Swedish design company could help fix this issue. The Mawok is a versatile baby hammock that is lightweight, easy to transport and can be fixed in a permanent or temporary position. And unlike traditional cradles, this hammock soothes baby by rocking up and down, rather than side-to-side.

    The Mawok can be used from birth to approximately six months and provides two modes of suspension. In permanent mode, the unit is attached to the wall. In mobile mode, the unit can be hung over a door. This ensures that your baby always sleeps in their own bed.

    The hammock is made from 100% calico cotton, provides a cosy and comfortable sleeping solution for baby and is ideal for traveling or overnight stays. It can be placed next to your bed for added convenience if (or more likely, when!) baby awakes during the night.

    When the child is small, the hammock can be supported with one metal spring. As the child grows, this is increased to two springs. The hammock is designed to flatten and adjust to baby’s weight and offers support for the back. The baby is placed on their back in the hammock in accordance with SIDS guidelines.

    Mawok uses steel springs that are 24 centimeters long (9.45”). The springs are designed to create the optimum vertical movement for the baby and a safety cord is included. The hammock weighs just 3kg (6.6lbs) and the cotton covered Styrofoam mattress measures 29 x 78 centimeters (11.42″ x 30.71”). Mawok comes with a matching bag measuring 40 x 30 x 11 centimeters (15.75 x 11.81 x 4.33”).

    The hammock was designed by Swedish company, Mony Inc which is operated and owned by Monica and Anders Landberg. They designed the Mawok hammock in an attempt to solve some of the problems associated with sleep in a child’s first year of life.

    A Mawok package includes a permanent and mobile suspension attachment, the soft hammock in orange or brown, bedding and bag and can be purchased for around $250. (
