A baby nest, or a cocoon, is a compact baby sleeping pod that ensures your newborn feels safe and secure. Thoughtfully designed to be oval-shaped with raised edges, the baby nest mimics the feeling of being in a mother’s womb to foster a sense of safety and familiarity for your baby.


A baby nest is a nursery essential that’s versatile for sleeping and lounging while keeping your baby safe and cozy.


Features of a baby nest


In recent years, baby nests are starting to replace swaddles - for a good reason. Baby nest provides the feeling of warmth and safety of a swaddle, without the hassle of wrapping them up properly and the risk of getting loose after long hours. Not to mention, the raised sides of the baby nest ensure your baby remains in a designated protective space.


Of course, there is no harm in using both together. Here are some of the many features a baby nest has to offer.


1. Multi-functional

A baby nest is your one-spot wonder where your baby can safely lounge, nap, and sleep all day and all night. It can even double-up as a quick nappie fix station. Enjoy playtime with a dangling arch mobile, or blow belly raspberries as your baby remains safe and snugin their cozy little space.


Look for one with an extendable base to maximize the lifespan of your baby nest. The Doomoo Cocoon: Organic Cotton Babynest is a widely popular choice among parents, and its extendable feature allows for use from birth up till 8 months.


2. Lightweight and portable

Portability is always a plus for versatile products as you would want to use it on various locations- indoors or outdoors - and the baby nest is no exception. This oval-shaped essential is light, easy to bring around the house, and over to your in-laws’ or friends’ place for them to fond over your bundle of joy.


Do remember to store it in a clean travel bag, or back in its original reusable packaging if you’re planning to bring it out for a trip.
