Brilliant idea, my daughter slept through virtually from the very beginning. She has only just moved into her cot bed at 5 and a half months.
The only downside to begin with was that there is no way to really use traditional bedding, however, we started using grow bags within a week of her being born, she was always lovely and warm and I was not worried about her getting the bedding over her head.
Great for self settling, the gentle rocking that my daughter made by fidgeting was sufficient to rock her back to sleep.
It's a huge shame that this product did not last until the advertised 9 months although having read other reviews I never expected it to, you would have to have a small baby for it to last that long.
Worth every penny!Read moreLess

"Wonderful hammock that my baby slept so well in she…"
Wonderful hammock that my baby slept so well in she was sleeping through by five weeks. Perhaps she would have done anyway, who knows, but I do think the hammock helped. It held her snugly so she couldn't roll around and as there was no empty space around her, I'm sure she felt more secure than she would have done in a large moses basket or cot. She also looked so cosy in it that it made everyone who saw it want an adult version.
We had it by the side of our bed so we could easily give it a little rock if she woke up, and rocking it certainly helped her go to sleep in the first place. The only drawbacks are that the frame takes up quite a lot of space, so it could be a challenge to squeeze it in in a small bedroom, and, worse, the claim that it is suitable up to nine months - our baby had outgrown it by six weeks. Although she technically still fitted in it (just), by that point she wanted room to stretch and move more freely. Still worth it though for those crucial first few weeks.Read moreLess
