What are the benefits of using a NurtureOne Cushion?
NurtureOne™ is dedicated to helping parents provide a tranquil, secure resting environment for their newborns, promoting a seamless integration of baby into our world.
A newborn baby is a gift and an inspiration. Parents feel an overpowering desire to do everything they can to ensure their babies feel loved, safe and relaxed. With your baby′s need for containment and peace in mind, we have designed the unique nurtureOne™ nesting cushion.
A nesting cushion like the nurtureOne™ Cushion, into which your baby can snuggle, is designed in such a manner that it does not compromise the baby’s breathing space or restrict movement. The nest shaped cushion with its broad band that spans from side to side over the baby, offers touch and proprioceptive input. Its boundaries provide resistance for him/her to kick against and to move within the necessary limits. This proprioceptive environment will also assist in calming your baby.
The cushion assists with snug position for sleeping, which in turn encourages calm and relaxation. Allowing for a smooth transition from breast or bottle to crib without changing position, the nurtureOne™ cushion is our answer to every parent′s question. How can I help my baby sleep well?
