Re: Are baby hammocks safe?

We have a Kanoe and loved it! My DS really enjoyed sleeping in it and bouncing himself to sleep

I read that thread. When I bought our hammock, it said that it cradled the baby in the same position as being in a mother's arms and conformed to their natural shape. Also it said that since they are not laying on a hard surface, that flat head is not an issue. Flat head is something seen from sleeping on a hard flat surface, not from a hammock.

But I think this is something that each parent must decide for themselves. We used it and loved it with our second baby, but decided on a crib with our third
