John Spence Nursery is a neonatal intensive care unit and we use the hammock for babies who are difficult to settle such as neurologically impaired babies, chronic lung babies and babies withdrawing from maternal narcotics. These babies appeared to be soothed by the rhythmic rocking of the hammock created by their own breathing. We are pleased with the results we have seen with the use of the hammock in the nursery to date.
First of all, I would like to thank you for your wonderful customer service! You have been so patient and helpful with all of my questions and concerns. Dealing with your company has been a wonderful experience from the beginning!
Now, for the real thanks...if only I could afford to buy a ticket to Australia so that I could hug you! I cannot tell you how much the baby hammock is changing my life!
I have a 6 month old daughter. Until I found the hammock she would ..
I am sending you few photos and good news - David is a peaceful boy and even he has his hammock just few days, he likes to sleep in it. In the maternity hospital baby bed, he didn''t like to sleep so much. Comparing to our first son-Tomas sleeping 3,5 years ago, when he was baby and David now I see that with David is much easier to handle he is much more peaceful and sleeping longer and I believe thanks to hammock. Thank you again.
My daughter is only a week old but already she sleeps 4-5 hour stretches at night between breast feedings in her Amby hammock. She also takes lovely 2-3 hour naps in it during the day. If l lay her down in her crib or a bassinet on her back, she will wake and fuss within 1/2 hour. Your hammock has made my job as a mom so much easier. I will be eternally grateful to you!
P.S. Your customer service is excellent and shipping to the U.S. was so fast, I was amazed!
I am convinced that the secure and tactile environment created by the hammock really gave our daughter Mackenzie her a jump start emotionally and physically. She is now 15 months, and too big for the hammock, but she stayed in it until she was approx 10 months old. She was a very happy and contented baby who absolutely thrived (even surprising the child health nurse at her steady and top-of-the chart weight gains week after week), and would sleep peacefully in the hammock for hours at a time ..
The Maternity Unit of this hospital has a quantity of hammocks, which are proving to be most successful. It is easy to keep a number of hammocks moving at the same time because of their good balance and engineering. These are well accepted by parents and on occasions we hire them out. We would highly recommend the Amby Baby Hammock.
My son is used to being carried in a sling most of the time during the day as he loves being close to me. When he drifts off to sleep, I can put him into the hammock and know that he feels cosy and safe. I've tried to place him on a mattress for sleeping, but he wakes up looking for something to be next too. I can only assume he feels too exposed and is looking for a more 'womb-like' experience.
I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the hammock!!! Lily (6mths) is making the transition from our bed to her new bed wonderfully! She took to the hammock for naps no problem and we are now working on the nightime sleeps which seems to be a bit trickier. Although Lily is not sleeping longer( which I am blaming on teething), she is sleeping more soundly. The length will come in time.
When she is fussy or after nursing we simply put her in the hammock and give it ..
Within the first 30 seconds of Luc being put in his nest he was fast asleep. He even went down awake! This was unheard of! From a little boy who couldn't sleep for anymore than 2 hours at a time at the most he is now sleeping for a minimum of 7 hours at a time at night. And if he manages to wake himself up and isn't hungry, his movement gently rocks him back to sleep! I now wake myself up to check he is OK, rather than him waking me up because he isn't OK. I can't thank you enough!
We have used the hammock when the situation has arised for our less acutely ill babies. For these infants it has been very comfortable and the parents have been very impressed with it. The frame is in constant use with the baby bouncer and this has really improved the development of our chronically ill infants-who have missed a lot of the early stimulation that well babies received. We would like to thank you for allowing us the opportunity to trial the hammock.
Even though we use a hammock that was handed down to us (we only bought a mattress, sheets and the snuggler from you) we want to let you know that we are happiest with the hammock. Ella loves it and we realise the huge difference to the sleeping habits of our elder daughter. We could not have chosen a better bed for Ella (and for us!).
I got the hammock and I am so thankful for such a great invention! My baby loves it! He was so used to being held in my arms or his dad's arms that he wouldn't fall asleep if he wasn't being held and rocked, and walked around, you know, and he is now over 15 lbs! He looks so comfortable in it, and what a relieve for our backs! Thank you.
Many thanks for your fantastic product. My 8 month old is a dedicated breastfeeding sling-worn baby. He is used to catnapping when he chooses, and does not like to be put to bed. He wakes up at 1 1/2 to 2 hour intervals.
My hammock arrived yesterday, and I couldn't wait to try it out. I was not disappointed. For the first time in all his life, my baby allowed me to put him down for naps. I bounced him to a blissful sleep for an afternoon nap yesterday, and for both morning and ..
I have lost count of how many days it has been since we got our Amby - I think less than a week - but I cannot remember what we did without it! It is a miracle for us. I am so happy. Thank you , thank you, thank you.
Just a brief note to tell you how happy we are with the hammock we recently purchased from you for our babies room. The staff are so impressed with the soothing effect the rocking has on a distressed and fussy baby. They are quickly soothed and drift off to sleep. We also like the versatility and mobility factors. We use the hammocks both indoors and out and the fact that it is fully washable is a definite asset when used by a lot of babies. We are planning to purchase more hammocks in the ne ..
I am writing to express our gratitude to you and your company for the hammocks you have so generously donated for our nursery. The new model "Nature's Nest" is a safe, comfortable and very attractive addition to our sleep room and we are finding it particularly suitable for our 'older' babies who have outgrown the original model. We have been using the original hammocks for a number of years as was obvious from the photograph in the "Brisbane News". May I say that they have proved to be most ..
I am just writing to thank you for the wonderful support that your product provides to babies and Parents. Our baby, Miles, came to us after a long and arduous labour. He had colic and would not sleep for a continuous amount of time; basically he was up every hour. He would only get a couple of hours sleep on either of us, where he could listen to our heartbeat and our breath, or, sleep in our bed where neither of us would sleep for fear of SIDS. It was only after my partner doing a lot of re ..
I would like to add myself to your long list of grateful parents – I have been using the nest since my daughter’s birth 8 months ago and could not be more pleased with it. I have recommended it to a number of other mums and also my local early childhood clinic took down your details as I was so thrilled with it. Too many good points to list them all but stand outs have been:
1. Margot learning very quickly to self settle – a great boon as her 2 older brothers were also needing ..
We are now using your baby hammock and Maria’s colic is much better and her sleeping habits have improved 100%. It’s an absolutely amazing, almost magic, baby bed which has not only helped Maria sleep longer and more comfortably but has made my life so much better. I am so thankful I gave it a go, thank you for your help.
I am so grateful that we found the Amby. The hammock was originally given to us as a baby gift for our second daughter by my mother. She thought it would help with sleeping through the night since we had had a very hard time with our oldest daughter's sleeping habits. We got the Hammock when Becca was 3 days old and she's been in it ever since. At 2 months Becca was diagnosed with some intestinal problems that among other things caused severe reflux problems. The Hammock kept her in the "semi ..
I just wanted to thank you for the Amby Baby Hammock. It has become a life saver. Our son would not sleep unless someone was holding him. We had purchased a crib which was hardly ever used. We next tried a co-sleeper which didn't work either. We resorted to bringing him in bed with us. He moves around so much during the night it was impossible to get a good night sleep.
Then I discovered your hammock. The first night we used it, we kept checking on him to make sure he was okay because he w ..
I am still a happy hammock user, and my baby is 20 months old at this writing. In fact, I am expecting another baby, and may have to purchase another hammock if I can't get the current user into a bed in a few months! Anyway, as we near the end of winter, (and cold season) I wanted to comment on a good effect of the hammock which you do not comment on, and might be of some help to other parents. I have found that colds and coughs did not linger, and were not a night time sleep disturbance, du ..
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for this wonderful product.
We brought our new son home 3 weeks ago, and have been amazed at how well he sleeps in the hammock. Our first night home he slept almost six hours! I have told many friends about the hammock, and have even recommended it to a family friend with a very premature baby. I ended up having a C-section, and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get the baby in and out of the hammock, but even with a 9.5 poun ..
