Cozy and nurturing

With padded sides that gently contour to your baby’s shape, loungers are the perfect spot to place newborns during the day so that they feel comforted and calm in a familiar environment with the feeling of being hugged. Play with babies in the nest, hang toys for tummy time or let family members keep them entertained while you do other important things around the home!

Features to look out for

These features will make your lounger a great investment for newborn babies:

  • Breathable fabrics that are hypoallergenic
  • Machine-washable
  • Handles for portability
  • Removable cover
  • An arch for hanging toys during play time

Providing a calming space

Baby loungers are designed to mimic the soothing environment of the womb, closely cradling the entire length of the baby’s body to make them feel warm and snug. They’re a fantastic investment that helps newborns transition from mummy’s tummy to sleeping in their own space with less stress and overwhelming sensory overload.
Nestle your newborn into one of our quality loungers and keep them feeling supported while you have your hands free to get other things done.

Portable and easy to store

Take your lounger anywhere with portable baby nests by brands like Done By Deer and Liewood. The Gro Babylift by Liewood is a 100% cotton organic baby lounger that provides a safe place for babies no matter where you go. With two handles and a wooden board for support, it’s perfect for placing on beds, couches and even some prams and strollers.
Find them in a variety of darling designs that will fit in beautifully with your other baby essentials, including carry bags, swaddles, muslin wraps, bassinet sheets and more.

Breathability and easy to clean

Soft, natural fabrics that are hypoallergenic and breathable are the safest options when it comes to protecting delicate baby skin and keeping babies comfy. At Metro Baby, find 100% organic cotton baby nests by Snuggle Me Organic that are non-toxic, breathable and GOTS certified with a polyester fill that makes them machine washable.
Removable covers are much easier to clean than the entire baby lounger and are a great option for convenience. You can purchase loungers on their own or with a cover that can reduce the amount of times you’ll need to clean the lounger.

Safety should always be on your mind

With a little one in the house, safety is always number one. Baby nests are super safe but you still need to keep in mind the safety advice, such as:

  1. Never leave babies unsupervised in nests.
  2. Never place the nest in a crib.
  3. Don’t place nests on soft or uneven surfaces.
  4. Don’t carry babies inside the nest.
  5. Nests are not co-sleeping spaces due to padded sides.
  6. Nests should not replace a crib with fitted sheet as the safest place for babies to sleep.

What age can babies use loungers?

Loungers are designed for newborn babies up to around 9 months of age who are not yet crawling. Their snug fit is made to mimic the familiar feeling of the womb to calm newborns and help them to adjust to the big world more easily.
Supportive with padded sides, loungers keep babies safely on their back while some can even minimise the discomfort of reflux.

How long should a baby sleep in a lounger?

Baby nests should not be used for sleep, no matter how comfy and cosy they are. If your little one falls asleep, gently lift them out of the nest and place them in a safe and supportive place like the bassinet or cot to sleep.
