What parents say about nurtureOne™
All three of my babies used the cushion for most of their first year. It is a wonderful sleep aid, letting you put your tiny baby to sleep on her side safely. It snuggles and holds the baby so that putting them down to sleep is easier. You can pick up the whole bundle, baby and cushion, if you need to move to another room. Also great for taking out at night, so their familiar bed is with them. I even used it in my pram. Definitely would recommend for all parents and babies.
Hierdie kussing het voorwaar die lewe vir my soveel makliker gemaak. Ek pluk tot vandag toe, ja nege jaar later, steeds die vrugte daarvan. Jana my dogter is ′n baie rustige en gemaklike kind en raak tot vandag toe nog dadelik aan die slaap as haar kop ′n kussing raak. Dit is vandag my sesde kussing wat ek koop as ′n geskenk vir ′n nuwe mamma. Die kussing maak nie net vir ′n oomblik die lewe vir jou makliker nie, maar jy investeer soveel meer in jou baba en groter kind se lewe. Jy sal vir jare nog die vrugte pluk.
The nurtureOne™ nesting cushion was the most useful gift that I received - my baby loved it and slept well on it in many places: friends houses, the sofa, coffee shops and a even a long haul flight. It is so easy to carry, use and wash. It was a lifesaver
As a third time mom I was grateful to find something so versatile for my little boy. The nurtureOne™ cushion has so many uses and it is containing, warm and cuddly and safe. He slept with it in his carry cot, couch, cot and lap. It often helped to soothe him when he was craky as it became like his 'dudu'blanket.
I have used the nurtureOne™ for both my baby boys and it was incredible. The fact that it is totally portable meant that wherever we went (and we travel a lot), they would have their safe, comfortable 'nest' with them and I knew they were fully supported and nurtured within it.
I used the nesting cushion with my kids. I particularly enjoyed using it in my own bed, as I breastfed and co-slept. I could easily move baby without disturbing it too much, on the cushion itself. I also felt less scared of accidentally rolling over baby in my sleep, as the baby had its own, confined space. With my youngest I borrowed a special, store-bought crib that you're supposed to use if you put baby in your own bed, but I found that he was uncomfortable, so I switched back to the cushion. In the latter he seemed to be cosier, without real risk factors for cot death.
What professionals say about nurtureOne™
I have been using and demonstrating the benefits of the nurtureOne™ Nesting Cushion for nine years now, and it has become an essential tool for me in teaching new parents to settle both contented and fussy babies. It is so much more comfortable as a sleeping mattress than the standard hard mattresses and wedges, and enables parents to transfer a settled baby, out of arms and into their cot/place of sleep. My parents are delighted and relieved at how much better their babies sleep, and it empowers them enormously. Importantly, too, it is safe.
Neither of my children was born prem. In fact, both weighed almost 4kg at birth and I refused to put them on any cushion but the nurtureOne™ cushion. From the moment they popped out, I used the nurtureOne™ cushion. They always moulded perfectly into the soft body-hugging cushion and were always so comfortable. When everyone else′s babies were wriggling around the cot, my babies slept soundly, safely tucked in to their cushions. As an occupational therapist, it was important for me to give them a comforting sensory environment so as to ensure a smooth easy transition from womb to world. The nurtureOne™ cushion ensured that they were always positioned in a safe, developmentally correct position within a beneficial tactile and proprioceptive environment. It also meant that wherever we went with our babies, they slept as though they were in their own beds because our cushion accompanied us on all our outings. After the dummy, it was my most prized possession!
The nurtureOne™ cushion was the best present I received with my second child. My third child loved it so much, he used it well into his second year! Both of my boys found it a soothing, comforting and nurturing sleep environment - everything a mother wants for her baby. As a therapist, I gladly recommend it to parents of both term and preterm babies, as it facilitates all the therapeutic outcomes we aspire to in terms of regulation and motor development. A wonderful, wonderful product!
Newborns are particularly sensitive. They crave to be enveloped, warm and snug: all the things that remind them of the womb. I have worked successfully over the years with the nurtureOne™ cushion, particularly for those colicky, fussy babies who have difficulty settling to sleep. In my opinion 'a must' for all newborn babies!
The success of the nurtureOne™ Nesting Cushion is evident in the responses from our clients. Mums can feed the baby, supported in the nest, and then transfer to the crib without too much disruption. Babies remain calm when they are snug and secure.
