Hush a Baby
September 5, 2007

That swing your best friend swears by isn’t doing the trick. The baby’s just not feeling the nursery rhyme it plays over and over, and you’re so not into the primary color plastic.

New Zealand is becoming the latest epicenter of cool baby gear (watch out, Scandinavia), proven more so with the intro of the Hushamok hammock. This womb-like design (developed by nature-loving parents) cradles baby with the rhythmic rocking of its innovative leaf spring. Factor in the hypoallergenic mattress and soft cotton sheets, and maybe naptime will finally bless you all.

And yes, it looks lovely in the living room, but don’t worry – you can take it with you on your travels (it’s totally portable). We wouldn’t leave you stranded.
