What is the Amby Bed Hammock? Why is it Good for Baby? And Why is it Great for Mom? Find Out Here...
The Amby baby bed is a hammock with a womb-like design. It provides baby with the natural elements of closeness and motion experienced during the nine months of pregnancy.
The Amby hammock hangs on a spring. Every time baby stirs or moves in his sleep the bed is set in motion with a gentle up and down, side to side and back and forth movement. Exactly the same movement that your baby feels while cushioned in the amniotic fluid of the womb.
The closeness and motion of the Amby bed provide your baby with the security he needs in a world that is way too big and scary.
Due to several incidents involving the Amby Hammock and ongoing investigations into its safety for infant sleep, Creative Baby Nursery Rooms is no longer recommending the purchase or use of this product.
You can place the Amby hammock right next to yours within arms reach. If your baby is restless, you can reach over and bounce the bed to comfort him and send him back to sleep without leaving the warmth of your own bed.
Responding to your baby's needs as soon as he cries will enhance the feeling of security engendered by the Amby hammock.
You can bring baby into your bed for nighttime feeds without having to get out in the cold - a lifesaver for cold toes on a winter's night.
The Amby hammock has been shown to encourage longer and more restful sleep, which means you and dad will enjoy more rest too.
On the practical side - the hammock is light enough to be moved to a convenient place for you to watch your baby during daytime naps - great peace of mind for a stressed out new mom. And because the Amby bed encourages longer nap times, maybe you can catch a few minutes of much needed sleep too!
Bouncy Baby Bonuses of the Amby Bed
Baby gets the benefit of spending the night swaddled in womb-like comfort. This provides your baby with the security he or she needs during the early months of emotional development.
Colicky babies find comfort in the 3D womb-mimicking motion. The bouncing movement eases cramps and gas in that little tummy.
Babies with acid reflux find relief from pain. Adjusting the inclining bed to the most comfortable angle for your baby reduces the pain, while the gentle rocking motion lulls baby back to sleep.
Restless sleepers tend to have more peaceful nights. Every time baby stirs, the bed is set in motion soothing baby back to dreamland, just like when she is in your arms, swaddled in comfort.
The womb-like environment of the Amby hammock is perfect for prem babies. Premmies often crave closeness and motion and have to be held much of the time during the first few months.
Babies tend to wake up slowly and peacefully in the Amby hammock, lulled gently in and out of dreamland until they finally surface. This is in stark contrast to the abrupt arousal experienced in a conventional crib that causes many babies to cry upon waking.
Health Highlights of the Amby Bed
The bed has been thoroughly tested and is JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association) certified.
The Amby hammock promotes back-sleeping. An important factor in SIDS prevention.
The Amby's soft bottom and sides keep baby warm and cozy though the night in winter. During the summer, the open top and mesh sides allow air to circulate keeping your baby cool and preventing overheating which is also associated with SIDS.
The Amby hammock is made with 100% raw cotton. No dyes, chemicals or fire retardants are used. The less chemicals your sensitive cuddle bunny is exposed to, the better.
Research has shown having baby sleep in the parents' room for the first year reduces the risk of SIDS. Note that this does not apply to babies sleeping in the parents' bed, which has been associated with an increased SIDS risk. If you choose to place the Amby baby hammock beside your bed, you can sleep easy knowing that you are doing the best for your baby.

The Aesthetic Advantage of the Amby Bed
The bed comes in blue, white or natural raw cotton to fit with your bedroom decor.
Disadvantages of the Amby Bed
The only down-side is that this is a temporary sleeping spot for your baby.
The Amby baby hammock has a weight limit of 25lbs, and is recommended for use from birth to 12 months. When your baby reaches 25lbs in weight or 12 months of age, whichever occurs first, he or she will have to be moved to a permanent crib, probably in the baby nursery room.
