What is the difference between Mawok and a traditional cradle?
The main difference between Mawok and a cradle (or a bassinet with a fixed base) is the way the baby lies. Inside the mother's womb the baby is used to a close and enfolding environment with a lot of movement. Once the baby is born, flat and static surfaces like beds are completely unknown to the baby and do not support the baby's development. The strength of Mawok is thus that it is similar to life in the womb. Suspension creates a rocking that your baby recognizes and loves. The soft carrycot is a safe environment for a baby who seeks proximity and movement.

This cradling is also a way to recreate the environment of the womb, just like Mawok does.
