Not safe for babies who can roll over or have acid reflux

Customer Feedback

Many parents found it very useful and convenient for when shopping with younger, smaller babies. However, some report the design to pose a potential safety hazard for babies who like to roll over which can cause them to flip over or remain hanging upside down. It is also hard to fit on most shopping carts.

Before we even begin to consider an infant hammock, let’s answer the question are baby hammocks safe. We believe infant hammocks are safe as long as parents install them correctly and ensure their babies are protected. Newborns and infants that cannot support their body are at a risk of rolling on their stomachs if the hammock is tilted and not level.
