WilderNest®s are perfect for camping, or any type of travel as they are also lightweight and easily pack in to any travel bag or backpack. They are made from a heavier weight cotton which makes them extra durable but being 100% cotton they are still soft enough for everyday indoor use.

Safety Concerns and All The Important Stuff
Designed with safety as a priority BabyNest®s and WilderNest®s were designed with your Little Ones health and safety in mind to make life easier for you.
I check the quality of all the Nests before shipping to ensure that no seams are loose, that no stuffing can escape, and that everything is safely attached if your little one was to start pulling/sucking any part of it. The rope is just long enough to tie up at the bottom, but once open (laying flat) there should not be much rope sticking out, however it may stretch slightly over time.
When in use:
Baby's head should be positioned at the top of the Nest at all times and away from strings.
When the Nest is open always ensure the strings are pulled in entirely.
- Place Nest on a flat surface and away from any edge that it could fall from.
Do not place close to fire.
The Nest is not intended as a toy.
- Soft objects such as stuffed toys and pillows should be kept out of the Nest.
- SIDS recommendations for safe sleeping should always be followed.
Health Canada Warning:
Babies should never be left unattended in baby nests, nor should the nests be placed inside another product, such as a crib, cradle, bassinet or playpen.
Baby nests should never be placed on standard beds, water beds, air mattresses, couches, futons or armchairs. Placing a baby nest on these soft and uneven surfaces can further increase the suffocation risk.
The safest place for a baby to sleep is on his or her back, alone in a crib, cradle or bassinet that meets current Canadian regulations.
When buying a product for a baby to sleep in, it is important to keep the following in mind:
A baby's sleep surface should be firm and flat.
- Products with soft surfaces or padding should be avoided.
Products with attached cords, strings or ribbons pose a strangulation risk.
Large openings or gaps in a baby's crib or other sleep environment are unsafe.
Health Canada does not recommend bed sharing or products that are intended to be placed in the adult bed, or attached to the adult bed, because of the risk of suffocation and entrapment. Health Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada recommend room sharing, using a crib, cradle or bassinet next to your bed, as a safe alternative to bed sharing. Research has shown that it is beneficial for babies to share a room with one or more caregivers, as it may reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
