With birth, a baby leaves the security of the womb and discovers the world. In the first months, mum spends especially much time with your baby and seeks physical contact. Although a cot is small, it can seem very big to a baby. This is where a baby nest that encloses your baby helps. This way, such a nest gives your baby a feeling of security. Thus, your baby feels comfortable in the first months and sleeps securely in a cosy nest.
The different baby nests
If you have never seen a baby nest before, imagine an inflatable. So these nests consist of a thick border and a thin bottom. The border can be compared to a bedroll. At the end, most nests are open: You can change the size with two strings or a Velcro fastener. This way, your baby is always snugly wrapped and feels comfortable. Since these little nests have a small pack size, they are also ideal as a travel cot for the first few months. Babies sleep in these cuddly nests until they are about 6 months old. After that, most babies feel safe in their little bed even without this nest. Some parents also place the little nest in the parents' bed so that the little treasure sleeps safely with mummy and daddy. There are also models from pram manufacturers that are exactly the right size for your own prams.
Important when buying a nest for your baby
Since a nest encloses your baby tightly, it is especially important to look at the materials. So if you want to buy a baby nest online, look for pollutant-free materials such as natural cotton - quality seals are helpful here. The nest should have a washable cover, as cleaning is then particularly easy. If you already own a pram, look at the manufacturer's accessories. Maybe the brand also offers these cuddly nests. Then use your model not only at home, but also in the pram.
