The Cranial Cradle Collection: Form following Function

There are many topics that parents much research and learn prior to the arrival of their newborn baby.  Some of the most significant decisions that you as a parent will make will come when learning how to design a safe sleep environment and in choosing an appropriate bassinet and crib mattress for your baby.  You’ll find that it’s important to feel secure in knowing that when you lay your baby down to sleep each night, that you’re giving your baby all of the advantages in life to safely thrive and prosper.

Cranial Cradle has designed an innovative line with your baby's proper cranial development in mind.  Our Collection of Pod Crib Mattresses and Pads for Bassinets and Diaper Changing Tables have contoured pod areas for both your baby's head and body.  The contoured pods provide maximum comfort and support by reducing external pressure on your baby's head, while keeping your baby safely nestled within the contours of the pods.  Our intuitive design cradles your baby as gently as you do.

The Cranial Cradle Collection has brought a heightened awareness to consumers and parents across the world about the importance of following safe sleep guidelines for infants. When parents are considering the most important purchases for their child's nursery, the sleep surfaces and bedding, it is critical to assure you take into consideration the quality, duration, form, function, design and safety standards that each product represents within the infant bedding category. Our revolutionary interior pod design is not only innovation at its finest, but is also a trusted, quality design that meets and exceeds all safe sleep standards and guidelines set by The American Academy of Pediatrics, the leading organization for pediatric sleep research.

Cranial Cradle Pads for Bassinets & Diaper Changing Tables are made with 2.75 inches of superior quality, high-density, ultra-firm foam core padding and are uniquely designed, rectangular pads with a contoured pod for your baby's delicate head and body to help relieve external pressure on your baby's head which may reduce the risk of positional plagiocephaly, cranial deformations, and cognitive delays caused by flattening of the cranium. Your baby’s body is safely nestled and fully supported within the contours of the pod. The 100% vinyl fabric cover and antimicrobial surface make cleaning and diaper changes a breeze!

Cranial Cradle Pads for Bassinets & Diaper Changing Tables have also been designed to fit standard hospital labor-and-delivery unit and neonatology unit bassinets, diaper changing tables, warming tables and incubators which may be utilized by newborn patients.  The Cranial Cradle Pads for hospital use consist of our hallmark contoured pod design for both the baby's head and body.  The contoured pod provides maximum comfort and support, and reduces external pressure on the baby's head, while keeping the baby’s body safely nestled within the contours of the pod. For added antimicrobial action, just wipe the 100% vinyl fabric cover with a wet disinfectant cloth like Lysol™ or Caviwipes™ whenever there is a mess, or to sanitize prior to or subsequent to patient use.

The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress is a uniquely designed crib mattress with a contoured pod for both your baby's delicate head and body. This revolutionary design includes a sculpted pod area to reduce the external pressure on your baby's head during the critical first 0-5 months when their heads are taking shape.  Pressure that is exerted by laying a baby down on a flat surface can lead to plagiocephaly, a condition more commonly known as “flat-head syndrome.” The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress is crafted with superior quality, high-density, ultra-firm foam for amazing comfort, and the contoured pod also provides additional neck support. The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress allows for parents to take their efforts to prevent plagiocephaly one step further and perform The Repositioning Method each night. Parents need only to simply rotate their baby’s head slightly from side-to-side each time they are laid within the contours of the pod to sleep.

This revolutionary design includes dual interior sculpted pod areas to reduce the external pressure on the heads of both twin babies during the critical first 0-5 months when their heads are taking shape. The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning is crafted with two recessed pod areas, one for each baby, which allows for alternation each night, for each baby into the other pod. This is known as The Repositioning Method.  Repositioning is a posturing method used for infants to ensure that they are not exerting weight on the same area of their developing craniums each time they are laid down to sleep.  Upon alternating babies between pods, parents need only to simply rotate their babies’ heads slightly from side-to-side each time they are laid within the contours of the pods to sleep, and The Repositioning Method is complete. Even if you don't have twins, The Cranial Cradle Pod Crib Mattress for Twins & Repositioning allows you to reposition your baby daily from pod-to-pod to avoid the same sleeping pose which can lead to plagiocephaly, or “flat-head syndrome”.
