How to choose your cradle?
The crib is the most suitable sleeping mode for a newborn. It does not last very long: only the first six months, according to the corpulence and the tonicity of the baby. It is, therefore, a substantial investment compared to the time of use. However, compared to the baby bed that will take over, the cradle has advantages: it is designed just the size of the newborn that does not feel lost, but on the contrary secure, contained, in a real cocoon. It is also at a right height for the parent who cradles it, and finally, it moves smoothly from room to room.
On the safety side, the manufacture of cradles is subject to the European standard NF EN 1130-1 / 2. It ensures no risk of pinching or tipping.
Baby Bjorn’s Harmony cradle: good height
With its sober and modern Nordic line, it is made of ventilated fabric. Right size up to 6 months. Easy to assemble and fold down when traveling.
Our opinion: a well thought out design. On its slats of soft metal, it oscillates to the rhythm of the movements of the baby if one gently swings with the foot. And as it is low, one is perfectly at its height when sitting next to it. Congratulations! Up to 8 kg. Mattress provided.

Smart Crib by Micuna: super cocoon
From an original Spanish brand, here is a real nest in very soft and antiperspirant fabric. It offers a beautiful depth, a super full tower, well protective and removable to be washed.
Our opinion: very practical casters, modern design, and excellent comfort. It truly inspires confidence. But why sell it with blanket and pillow, two accessories to banish because of the risks of choking? Up to 12 months (15 kg). With mattress and bed cover.
