About the cradle

Life is movement and development

A newborn child has already lived for nine months in a soft and round world. The organic shape of the cradle gives the child a safe and natural framework for his or her start in life.

A good life begins with the soft stimulation of the child’s ability to move and develop his or her motor function. In the Leander cradle, the child is also secure through calm and gliding movements, like in mum’s tummy.

The Leander cradle is suspended from one point. Therefore, you can easily move the cradle with one arm and without using force so you child feels safe. The child can set the cradle into slight motion so he or she gains greater awareness of his or her body. This stimulates the sense of balance and strengthens the child’s development.
