This Innovative Tech Bed Instantly Stops Babies From Crying By Mimicking A Real Hug

The bed even has a "heartbeat."

Sometimes, no matter what you do, you can't stop a crying baby — no matter how much you hold them, walk around with them, feed them, burp them, change them, cradle them, and more. It's distressing to not know what's bothering your child, and hard on parents who likely have had no sleep themselves. 

While we have yet to invent a device that can tell us exactly what a baby needs, parents are turning to an innovative cushion they claim helps stop their infants crying.

The Babocush Newborn Comfort Cushion is a large cushion that parents can strap their baby securely on to, to calm them. The baby lies in a comforting hug-like position that mimics the traditional way you hold a baby over your shoulder. 

This semi-upright cushion, combined with a heartbeat-like vibration mimics the closeness a child would experience from a real hug.

The bed is meant to help ease reflux, wind, startle reflex, flat head syndrome, and colic. Because babies aren't slumped over when they're in the Babocush, the high-tech cushion also helps to open up their airways. 

CEO, founder, and mother-of-two Kerry Nevins explains on the Babocush website that she was first inspired to create the product after her son was born. "When my son Harry was born, he was only settled and content when resting against my chest," she wrote. "He cried in his bouncer, cried in his pram and cried in his cot – he even cried in his car seat. And so my quest for designing the ultimate swaddling cushion with soothing sounds and motion began!"

Babocush was "born."

The goal was to develop something that was comfortable for babies, was safe, and allowed parents to complete their other chores.

In a video about the innovative bed, CEO Nevins explains, "It has been really important that we got it completely right and safety was so important. And we had to know that it really did work and that it was really just right."

The 100 percent family-owned and family-run company states that 90 percent of parents saw a reduction in their baby's crying by 70 percent when they were using the Babocush Newborn Comfort Cushion. Additionally, 95 percent of parents claimed their babies slept better at night with the cushion.
