Origins of the Cocoonababy Nest…
Cocoonababy Nest was originally developed in Marseilles, France.
By observing the needs of the babies she was treating, Danielle Salducci, started to design and make mattresses which would enable newborns to make movements similar to those made inside their mother’s womb.
The initial stage was to medically research and to determine a posture for the premature baby which could be described as a ‘follow-up womb'. The parameters were based on the vital functions (heart, oxygenation, and respiration), the sleep patterns and the level of the influence of stress on various pathologies. The second stage was the postural research. The ‘follow-up womb’ posture is determined by the support given, the way the baby is held tightly or ‘contained’ and the curled up posture of the child’s body.”
Danielle Salducci and the team soon realised that the benefits reaped by the premature babies would also apply to full-term babies.
