Description of the mattress Cocoon Baby
Loving and caring parents to a newborn child buy a lot of goods designed to facilitate the processes of feeding, wearing and falling asleep. One of the innovative products for newborns are the products Cocoon Baby (CocoonaBaby) of the French company Red Castle. The products are designed taking into account climatic features and include models for all seasons. These are anatomical mattresses for cribs, carrying, sheets and envelopes for walking.
Who needs the mattress "Cocoon Baby"
It is a mattress for children of the first months of life, in shape resembling a cocoon. Especially its purchase is recommended for babies with low weight (up to 3 kilograms) or premature babies.
Why a cocoon?
The mattress was originally developed by leading experts in the field of pediatrics and neonatology (the science of the first days of life of newborns), taking into account the physiology and anatomy of small and premature babies. In the future it was proved that the use of "Cocon Baby" and in newborns with normal weight helps to avoid many neurological diseases. After all, the correct development of the baby is possible only with the creation of certain conditions for this. And newborn babies with low weight and especially premature babies need a condition close to intrauterine.
The mattress "Cocoon Baby" for the newborn is made in a special way. The body of the child is enveloped from all sides, repeating its shape, creating sensations close to the pressure of the walls of the uterus while the baby is inside the womb. At the same time the baby's legs are in a slightly bent position, above the head. The chin is pressed to the body, which does not prevent the child from turning his head and looking around. This is the most correct and physiological posture for newborns. The baby on the baby bed "Baby Coacon" (photo), installed in a baby cot, can be around the clock.
Mattresses in the form of a cocoon are safe for the baby and are convenient for the mother during feeding. Mummy can take the child directly on the mattress and carry it to the parent's bed or keep on her lap. This creates an additional height and does not have to put your hand under the baby during breastfeeding.

Safety precautions when using Cocoonababy products
The product "Cocoon Baby" can be used not only for sleeping a baby, but also for carrying it to near distances. It should be remembered that the maximum time for finding crumbs during transportation in a cocoon should not exceed 1.5 hours. This is due to the fact that the child's backbone for a year has not yet fully grown and formed. Long-lasting vibration and movement can adversely affect the ligament bones of the newborn's spine. The problems that can arise are micro-traumas and deformations. That's why it is also not recommended to use spring mattresses for babies.
Mothers about the mattress "Cocoon Baby" reviews write only positive. And also recommend the use of the product and for bathing the child, but always under strict control.
How to choose
Before you buy the product, you should familiarize yourself with all variants of mattresses-cocoons. There are 3 varieties, differing only in size.
№ 1 - mattress for premature babies. Often it is with its application that the child adapts to the environment even in the hospital.
№ 2 - "Cocoon Baby" for children with low weight (up to 2.7 kg). This weight can often be observed in babies born before the appointed time, or in multiple pregnancies.
№3 - is intended for children up to 4 months. At this age, children begin to turn over on their side or stomach, and the need for a cocoon mattress disappears by itself. This size of the mattress is usually purchased also for children born on time and with a weight of 3-5 kg. To fix the child on the mattress in a correct position a special belt is provided. Some sources claim that cocoons can be used up to 6 months, even when the child's legs go beyond it.
In terms of length, width and height, the different numbers of the mattress-cocoon correspond to the average statistical parameters of the growth and weight of a child of one or another age. In its composition, the mattress consists of 100% synthetic filler - polyurethane. The material does not lose its shape. The first layer is softer, and it is "accepting". The inner layer is basic, more elastic. Polyurethane does not cause allergies, nor does it contribute to the accumulation of dust mite allergens. All mattresses are completed with a snow-white cotton sheet-pillow case. In addition, you can purchase replaceable. The weight of the product without packaging is up to 1 kg.
