Hanging cribs?

I saw a picture of a hanging crib. It said that hanging cribs (similar to a hammock) are great for babies. That it feels more like in the uterus and helps them sleep. Has anyone used a hanging crib or have any information?

Re: Hanging cribs?

En Utero a baby is weightless, floating. A baby hammock would not create that same effect and it would put pressure on the cervical spine, forcing it to curve, destroying the normal C-curve, causing pressure and putting the spine out of alignment. It would also create a flattened occiput, which prohibits proper formation of the brain. All of our babies sleep on their bellies. All have rounded heads, proper C-curves etc. We all see a chiropractor, too. I was told to put C2 on her back. She nearly choked to death from spitting up. Once on her stomach she slept better, didn't choke and didn't startle at every noise.

For patios or outdoors I would think it would be great...but, not as an only crib. More like a spot to hang out.
