The ideal sleeping bed for newborns and babies up until one year of age
The Schwebebettchen is a hanging cradle out of the idea of a hammock for babies.
The main point during developing the bed was put upon the post-pulse oscillation. With common cradles this effect does not hold for long, a hammock on the other hand, does not have solid ground.
The Schwebebettchen rocks and swings even at the slightest movement of the baby, for instance when moving an arm or turning the head. The bed, therefore, is in motion most of the time. Similar to the fetus in the womb, the baby in the Schwebebettchen is part of an organic system. The baby is experiencing the dynamics of balance and gravity, and at the same time, is part of it. Welcome on Earth!
The Schwebebettchen is made of cotton (i. e. Canvas or Panama) or a blend of cotton and linen. The norm bed is white (see picture without deco). You can agree with us upon additional colors or decoration beforehand (ca. € 20 extra charge).
The Schwebebettchen consists of two cushion rolls which secure your baby not to roll onto the sides of, even when the bed is being pushed more intensely. The cushion rolls are available in two versions:
polyester fleece, washable
sheep wool filling with lavender. Not washable. These rolls contain an additional cover (€ 12 extra charge).
The bed does not contain a matress. It is possible to cushion the bed with lambskin or a woolen blanket. It is also possible to order a small matress on demand (ca. € 19 extra charge).
All fabrics of the bed are washable with 30° celsius. Exceptions are the sheep wool cushion rolls with lavender filling. Only the extra cover is washable.
The Schwebebettchen is generally being delivered without a shelf for the ground. It is not possible for us to store and deliver such bulky packages. It is quite easy to obtain a shelf in the right size at any DIY store. We recommend contaminant-free plywood. We will, of course, inform you on the ideal size of the shelf when you order/we deliver.
We pay for the shipment outside of Berlin (only for Germany!).
