Having a newborn baby is a scary time … amongst the joy of meeting and falling in love with my newborn I questioned every single little thing and even though Jacob is my third child I can honestly say that none of my babies have been the same, with their own little quirks and loves.
Jacob’s obsession from day one has continued to be one that is hard to maintain in that he loves to be held … and I mean permanently but with Joshua and husband and all the stuff that needs my time attention too … holding my baby while he sleeps is nice but not maintainable 24/7.
In those early days I had no idea how to detach myself from him when he was sleeping and so we devised rolled up blankets to pop in the bottom of his Moses basket to give him the feel of being held but it worried me that the extra padding would cause him to overheat or put him into the wrong position on his back.
If you have not heard of Plagiocephaly before it’s a condition that flattens the back of babies head by continually being against a flat surface either in a cot, baby bouncer or car seat and some statistics out there now claim it can affect 47% of babies!
When the Cosydream arrived I loved the look of it and most of all I loved its breathable material and the quality of them with its luxurious feel. It has a washable cover and the bottom positioner is movable to fit as baby grows with velcro patches on.
I loved the fact it’s a whole unit and not in lots and lots of piece so its easy to pick up and move from cot to bouncer.
It’s such a lovely idea to help with aligning the spine and taking the pressure of the back of the head I certainly wish we had been using this from the beginning instead of running around at night hunting for extra blankets to use … thankfully they are now a thing of the past.
Babymoov have created several products to help with spine alignment and also to use under baby’s head to prevent flat head syndrome and you can find those on their website babymoov.co.uk
