Rated 5 out of 5 by KevinK Baby loves it
We bought this when baby was 2 weeks old after virtually no sleep as he didn't like being flat on his back and would only sleep in our arms.
We were reluctant at first due to price, but it's been a great purchase. We keep it in the cot and he knows that when he's lying in it it is night time and he sleeps for longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jooliara One of our best buys
We bought this prior to the birth of our son, albeit with some trepidation given the price. Our son has slept in his Cocoonababy every night since he came home from hospital at two days old. He is now 19 weeks old and with sadness we will soon be waving a fond farewell to the Cocoonababy, as he's getting just a tad too big for it. He has always looked comfortable and snug and has slept for 6+ hours per night (virtually without exception) since he was just four weeks old. The product is so light that it is easy to take around and we've taken it away on holiday as we didn't want to risk the little man not getting a good night's sleep. We discarded the 'waist band' virtually immediately as he found it too restrictive and the size couldn't be adjusted. Even though he was a smallish baby it didn't fit, but he's just fine without it. The Cocoonababy works well with the baby in a sleeping bag. Also, when we bought it we struggled to find information to confirm whether it could be used with a breathing/motion sensor - the answer is that it can! Overall a great purchase and I would certainly recommend to my friends (and have done so). Wish they did one for bigger babies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lulak Brillant item!
We bought this to use for my second child and it has been a great purchase. At first we were a bit unsure about getting it because of the price, but I am glad we did.
She has slept in it really well from day one and we use it round the house when she naps in the daytime. My first child wanted to be held all the time and could only sleep on you. I didn't want the same to happen this time so I bought the cocoonababy. I really wish I had it for the first one!!!
Definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaroImogensMummy Best thing we bought her!
We really needed help getting her out of our bed and into her cot, as we knew it wasn't safe for her to be in with us. After two weeks of almost no sleep i took the plunge (i'd held off because of the cost) and ordered one of these and it worked from day one. She slept in it straight away for about 3-4 hours at a time with it in her cot and we've taken it away with us too, worked perfectly for her. The only item i wouldn't buy again is the pink spare cover - the colour is really sickly, i only use it briefly for her while i'm washing the beautiful white one. Worth every penny to get your sleep back and her safe in her own bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huxley Invaluable - don't hesitate to buy it!
I've never reviewed any other purchase but I feel compelled to let all new parents and soon-to-be parents know how fantastic the cocoon is.
We have a very clam and content baby boy and I am convinced that this is largely thanks to the cocoon. I bought it before he was born and we have used it ever since returning home from hospital. He sleeps in it but also enjoys lounging in it, watching the world go by. The fact that it tilts at a slight angle not only helps the issue of reflux but it allows him to see what is happening around him and interact with people more than he would be able to if he were lying flat.
We carry the cocoon around the house with us all day and take it with us if we are visiting friends. I put it on the dining table, on the living room floor, the bathroom floor (when I'm showering)….If I'm particularly tired during night feeds, I sometimes pop the cocoon next to me on the double bed and can rest assured that I am very unlikely to squash the baby as he is raised and protected in his big foam dish.
I avoided buying too many 'baby paraphernalia' products and I'm glad as this one purchase has served the purpose of many different items rolled into one eg. a moses basket, a crib, a bouncer….So, although it might seem pricey for a bit of foam, I think it is well worth the money. Put it this way, if I was on a dessert island with a newborn this is what I'd take.

Rated 5 out of 5 by julzs Our best purchase
Our son has slept beautifully in his nest since the day he came home, he is now 6months old. It has proved incredibly useful when visiting friends or family as well. Only wish he wasn't fast outgrowing it as not looking forward to the transition into just the cot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dannifurniss Amazing- best buy ever!
I swear by this product! My daughter felt really secure in it and slept through from 3 months. It was transportable and we were able to take it overseas with us and she slept really well too whilst away. its durable and comfy and i would use it again should be have a second.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tara82 An expensive mistake - baby hated it
We bought this for our second daughter who was a much less settled sleeper than her older sister had been. Having read the reviews I was hopeful that we had come across something which would help her to feel secure and calm her down.
But she hated it from the start. The position seemed very unnatural, forcing her head down towards her chest and she seemed constrained by lying in the well of the cocoon.
Eventually I couldn't bear her distress any longer so we just gave up, persevered with the cot and she did settle down and now sleeps well. But I do regret being taken in by the marketing hype and spending so much on the Cocconababy.
