"Expensive but worth it!…"
I was very dubious about buying this as it's quite expensive and there is no way of knowing if it will work until you try it. With my DD it worked like a miracle! It was the only place that she would sleep other than on me. It's adjustable, so will fit a variety of size babies (DD was born on the 50th centile but quickly climbed to over the 98th). It's very stable, safe and somehow helps even bad sleepers to relax.Read moreLess
"Expensive but worthwhile…"
Our baby slept on his Cocoonababy in his cot from birth to 5 months (and he was on 95th centile). He would never sleep in the Moses basket when we tried that in the day but seemed really comfortable and settled on his Cocoonababy.
He slept through the night (11pm to 7am) from 7 weeks. We were also able to use it away from home a couple of times by putting it in a travel cot in a holiday home and at relatives' houses.
It cant be used inside a Moses basket as it is too high but can be used either by itself (on the floor if necessary), in the parents' bed or directly in the cot from the start. There is a tummy strap for extra security.
We have finally moved our baby off it as he has started to wriggle around too much but as he was used to being in his cot anyway, the transition away from Cocoonababy to cot mattress has been ok.
It is expensive and you will need a spare sheet as well which has to be purchased separately, however its resale value on ebay remains high.
If you can afford this product, i would recommend it and if you sign up to Jojo Maman Bebe's site you will get details of site wide discount events so should be able to purchase it for 10%-15% off if you bide your time and wait for an offer.Read moreLess

"The best of both worlds when co-sleeping…"
DD found this baby mattress wonderfully comfortable and I found it extremely practical with the sleep positioning belt very useful for keeping my side-sleeper out of trouble. If you've got a big bed, you can put it beside you so you've got the benefits of co-sleeping without the worries or discomforts. It's also light and easy to bung in the car for snoozing in other settings. Highly recommended.Read moreLess

"I was really unsure whether to buy a cocoonabayby mattress…"
I was really unsure whether to buy a cocoonabayby mattress as I was worried that it would just be another fad item to add to the many baby seats etc I had brought for my first child. I decided to purchase as it was my only costly buy with my second child.
I have to say I have not been disappointed. Although pricey I would most certainly recommend this as a good buy. 100 time better than a moses basket and not that much more expensive. My son has slept well from the word go (6/7 hours from 2 weeks) and loves to lie in it during the day watching his mobile go round. He is much more content when in his cocconababy than when lying flat.
I would also say that if you are looking for a safe way to co sleep with your child then this is an excellent option as you can have the mattress next to you in bed.
A really excellent purchase.Read moreLess

"Sleep. A word that will run circles around your brain…"
Sleep. A word that will run circles around your brain for the first months (or years!) of your child's life.
I loved Cocoonababy! My baby slept through the night from day 1, she didn't had fat head, no reflux and was happy all the time! I could take her with me everywhere in the house (on a carpet in the living room, on the floor in our room)...It was developed by Drs in France and it is approved by the Australian authority called TGA (Therapeutic goods of administration) which reassures me a lot!
I got lots of info from this website: www.pacificare.com.au.

"Out of all of the years working with babies, I…"
Out of all of the years working with babies, I have never come across something like this.
Originally made in France, the Cocoonababy was introduced to me through my work as a maternity nurse to twins just recently.
To describe it from the aesthetic, it looks similar to what a memory foam matress would look like if one was made for a newborn. However, the Cocoonababy is so much more. The benefits are endless : provides support for baby's back and neck, prevents 'flat head syndrome' in newborns, reduces gastric reflux and allows babies to interact with their surrounding environment due to correct positioning.
To be honest, atRead moreLess
