Description

 

Just better for your back in a mini version, as it is based on the Original Ergonomic Cot with the unique Australian Patented and Design Registered design, created specifically to reduce the stress placed on carers and mums by increasing the base height and making access to the child easier. The design allows parents and carers to get closer to the child to reduce the impact of the weight of a child.

Why a specific cot for the early learning sector?

In mid 2011, Work Safe Victoria discovered carers were suffering from multiple skeletal injuries caused by the repeated manual handling and bending into cots. The injuries caused vary but are caused primarily by the repeated bending into lower level cots. Work Safe Victoria proceeded to issue Early Learning Centres infringement notices and required centres to change their cots to a more suitable cot to reduce the injuries caused.
The options for Early Learning Centres were limited to Cots that did not meet Australian Standards or metal cots which didn’t meet the comfort and assurance requirements of parents and carers.

The next step . . . In consultation with various associations including Work Safe Victoria, Kindergarten Parents Victoria (KPV), Good Start Childcare, Fair Trading Victoria, Fair Trading Queensland and one of Australia’s leading ergonomists Chris Fitzgerald, babyhood took up the challenge of developing a Cot specific for the this industry’s needs. This was no easy task as it required new innovation, new technology and the consensus of all the related parties as to what was best for carers, babies and parents.

Almost 14 months later babyhood designed and manufactured the original Ergonomic Cot, which was proudly launched at the KPV Conference.
The unique Australian Patented* and Design Registered Cot was designed to reduce the stress placed on carers by increasing the base height and making access to the child easier. The design allows carers to get closer to the child to reduce the impact of the weight of a child.

Standards and Regulatory Requirements.

The Original babyhood Ergonomic Cot is tested to AS/NZS 2172:2003 and complies with AS/NZS 2172:2010 – Australian Standard for Domestic use Cots as well as the Commercial Tip Test Standard. The cot is tested by the highly regarded NATA accredited testing facility AFRDI (Australian Furnishing Research and Development Institute) to ensure that the cot is safe and meets with the Standards noted above.

Why a mini version?

Since the great success of the Original Ergonomic Cot, it has become apparent that centres with smaller spaces and parents and grandparents would love the Ergonomic Cot, for their smaller spaces . . . so we designed a smaller version with all the great features of the original, just smaller.

Safe Sleeping Practices

When using a babyhood cot we recommend that you follow safe sleeping practices. Whilst we appreciate and respect a parent’s right to make the right choices for their family, there are guidelines recommended by the medical experts for safer sleeping for your babies because we all want happy and healthy bubs.

These guidelines include:

  • flat mattress
  • firm mattress
  • on their back
  • no excessive bedding or loose toys

 

If you have questions about how to use our products please call us or email us, we are always happy to guide you to create a safe environment for your baby using our products.

All products are covered by a specific warranty. Please refer to your product instruction manual for details of the warranty relating to the product. Alternatively please contact us at sales@babyhood.com.au for more information.

Timber is a natural product; that is part of its beauty, so a colour variation, knots in the timber and grain pattern are both natural and to be expected. We do not colour match timber during fabrication as the waste from such practices would be environmentally irresponsible, so you will see some variations in your products. We believe this is what makes our timber products naturally beautiful. These variations are unavoidable as timber is seasonal and will vary between season, including the way in which the paint appears on different surfaces. These variations will not be considered manufacturing faults or defects under our warranty.
