Having your baby sleep close to you for the first few months is recommended so that your baby can get used to the outside world, but it is also a reassuring way for parents. The cradle is therefore the ideal alternative to the cot.
Here is our selection of the most beautiful rattan cradles to furnish and accompany your baby through the night: a selection of original design cradles made from natural, sustainable and renewable materials. Our favourite is the MARELIA cradle by THEO: a pretty Cododo cradle to put next to the parents' bed for the first nights with baby.
The baby cradle, whether made of wood or wicker, is an important element in the care of your baby. It must meet various safety standards to ensure proper use and, above all, optimal comfort for your child.
Therefore, certain requirements are necessary for the safety of your baby.
The baby cradle must meet the NF EN 1130-1 standard. This standard guarantees that the baby cradle is suitable for use according to various criteria. Your baby's cradle must be rigid and stable. The stability of the support is essential to prevent any risk of disaster. The cradle (bassinet or not) must have a minimum height of 20 cm from its sides and a spacing of less than or equal to 7 cm for its bars in order to avoid any jamming of your baby's head.
The cot should be made from materials that are durable and non-toxic for your child. Make sure that the products are well designed; paint, materials, finishes, so that your baby does not sleep in an environment that is harmful to his health. Therefore, beware of the vintage rattan cradle or wicker bassinet found at a flea market or bought second hand, it is unlikely that these products meet the safety and quality standards that our society imposes and recommends today to protect our children and their safety. Beware of the vintage charm of a rattan cradle or a baby bassinet as a bed.
We recommend using the cradle until the age of 6 months. From this age onwards, the child begins to be more flexible, master of its body and able to stand up. It is advisable to change your baby's sleeping position once he or she has reached 6 months.
There are different types of cradles to suit the needs of each parent and child.
- Standard rattan cradles
Standard cradles are the most classic baby cribs you can find. This type of baby bed offers a fixed structure and a swing function. The rocking function helps to soothe or put baby to sleep. You can find different types of standard cots that will be with or without wheels. If you opt for the rolling function, you will be able to move the cradle wherever you want.
- Rattan cododo cradle
The co-sleeping cradle is ideal if you want to keep in touch with your baby even during the night. Characterised by one of the folding edges, you can be close to your child whenever you want. We love the French brand THEO and its beautiful selection of rattan cradles.
- The folding cradle
The folding cradle is an excellent option. It allows you to gain more space in your child's room when you have a small space. It allows you to save and maximise space. You can also unfold and fold it easily for any trip you have to make. For an evening or a weekend away from home, it is ideal for not disturbing the baby's sleep.
- The wooden cradle
The wooden cradle is the most common of all. Made in different ways from wicker or rattan, it offers all the security required but also all the aesthetics of the expected visual.
This type of cradle is made from durable and solid materials. The rattan cradle provides optimum comfort for your baby's sleep. The material from which the rattan cradle is made also guarantees safe use. Rattan is a material that is resistant to traction and pressure and offers you a long-lasting piece of furniture. A nice rattan cradle will be perfect to accompany your child throughout his six months and can also be used for another small child.
The wicker baby cradle is environmentally friendly due to the quality of the material. The wicker cradle is above all a key element in the decoration of your toddler. This type of furniture offers a vintage look. As vintage is becoming more and more popular in interior design, the vintage wicker cradle will fit perfectly in your child's room.
The rattan baby bed brings a lot of cachet to the room in which it is located and gives all the authenticity of wood within your space.
In your child's room, you can match the rest of the room with your vintage cot. To do this, choose a rattan wardrobe or a changing table made of the same material. With a vintage rattan nursery, you will plunge your child into the world of the past.
