Cocoonababy Nest for Newborn Babies with Sheet 

Our summary: the cocoonababy nest has been one of our best sellers for years now and with good reason - it's a natural, supportive and reassuring place for your newborn baby to feel comfortable and secure in, as it's similar to being in the womb. It's not flat so they can keep the naturally rounded c shape of their spine, with legs slightly raised as in the womb, and with access to theirs hands, a source of fascination for them. We've never had a bad review!

The Cocoonababy nest was originally developed for premature babies on the neonatal ward of the North Hospital (Hôpital Nord) in Marseilles, France.

As time went by, the medical team realised that if full term babies were to lie in a similar nest they would also benefit from the advantages gained by the preemies. So, working closely with the medical team, Red Castle France created a larger version of the Cocoonababy nest for full term infants to use for the first four months of their lives. This model is available throughout France and abroad in shops and on websites which sell Red Castle products. In the Cocoonababy nest, your baby lies on his back in a semi-foetal, “contained” position. Whilst conforming to the medical recommendation that newborns should sleep on their backs, in the Cocoonababy nest, a child feels as safe and secure as he did when in his mother’s womb.

The semi-foetal position helps him to sleep longer and better. It also helps to avoid startle reflex (when a peaceful, sleeping baby suddenly throws his arms outwards and wakes up crying). It limits the risk of your baby getting a flat head, suffering from reflux and, by enabling your baby to touch his face and mouth, it helps him learn to control his movements (liberate and direct his motricity). The semi-foetal position also helps your baby develop relationships with those around him whereas lying flat on his back he would be looking at the ceiling or would invariably have his head turned to the same side (which is the position he adopted latterly in the womb).

This newborn version is for children weighing 2.8kg (6.2 lbs) and more. The Cocoonababy nest includes:

  • an adjustable wedge which can be moved down the nest as baby grows, during his first 4 months.
  • a white Fleur de Coton fabric fitted sheet.
  • a Tummy band which maintains the child in an ideal position without impeding his freedom of movement.

During the first few months of a newborn baby’s life, the ergonomically shaped Cocoonababy will reassure your baby and help him or her adapt as well as possible to their new life. Lying in the nest, the baby, having left the boundaries of his mother’s womb, feels ‘contained’ and comforted.

The Cocoonababy allows your baby to adopt a semi-foetal, cradled posture with his or her shoulders and spine slightly rounded. This has many advantages including:

  • It allows your baby to touch their face and mouth like he or she did in the womb giving them reassurance.
  • It can help reduce gastric reflux.
  • It can limit the risks of cranial 'flat head' syndrome, commonly caused when baby sleeps on his back on a traditional mattress.
  • It frees and directs the baby's movement, which can help hand eye co-ordination development.
  • It can improve the interactivity between the baby and those around him/her.
  • It can be used to co-sleep with your baby.

It is not recommended to put it outside in the sun to air it and let the sun “sterilize” it, because the sun may discolour the foam.

Suitable for 0-4 months

Dimensions: 69cm long x 39 cm wide x 17cm deep (at the top - approx 14 cm for the rest)

Very comforting
26 April 2021  | 

I find it very comforting for my little baby boy. It makes him feel snug and cosy. And I'm very happy with the product. I am hoping it leads to good sleep habits. So far he is snoozing every 3 hours after a feed.

Great product
28 March 2021  | 

I bought the cocoonababy recently and I am delighted it's as good as I had hoped it would be! My daughter is happy, comfortable and safe when she's in it and it leaves my hands free. I was informed upon ordering that there would be a delay as it was out of stock but I didn't need it urgently and it arrived sooner than I expected. Great service as always!

Our little baby was so small (6 pound 11 ounces ) and wouldn’t settled in her co sleeper. She also hated being swaddled. Once the cocoonababy arrived we managed to get some sleep and our little bub was so happy and cozy in it. It’s a wonder product that travels easily , can be used day / night. Worth every penny x

Great purchase
06 June 2019  | 

Love the cocoonababy, my little girl sleeps soundly in it day and night. She looks so comfy in it and it’s great for wind pain as she’s not lying flat. It’s expensive but I don’t mind paying for it as it works!

A must for all new borns
10 July 2018  | 

I can not recommend this enough, I had this for my daughter & she loved it she slept so well in it & I found I was more relaxed as she was safe & cosy. I used this instead of a Moses basket. It is so much easier to move around than the basket. My only regret was that I did not get one for my son who was born the previous year. I have told many others about the cocoon & they all agree that it is fantastic. Some are put off by the price but if someone close to you wants to buy you something, tell them about it ! They can buy it themselves or club together. I purchased this Cocoonababy for a lady in the office who is going on leave shortly. She really wanted one but found it pricey (Earth Mothers is the best price I've found so far!) We did a collection & will be presenting it to her shortly.

Absolutely Fantastic service and a dream product!
29 March 2018  | 

I bought this as a present for my sister, it is an excellent product for newborns! A dream bed for babies. Really great service with next day delivery😊. My niece was very unsettled in the hospital crib and the minute she got home settled so well in the cocoona baby, loving life😍.
