Without being essential, the deckchair is a very comfortable alternative to your arms and bed, during the first weeks of the infant, usually up to about six months or more depending on the model. It allows the baby to participate in the family life during his / her moments of awakening while ensuring a greater freedom of movement in the house.

In the beginning, adopt the most elongated position possible. Then, over the course of the months, you gradually straighten it up. So, especially about 2 or 3 months, when he begins to take an interest in his environment, he can actively look at everything that happens around him, reassured by your presence. If he falls asleep for a little nap, just think of tilting back the file horizontally. Nevertheless, the deckchair should not be used in place of the cradle (unless otherwise designed) or for long periods, but the current models are very comfortable and well thought out to respect the morphology of the small ones.

Some are very designed and settle proudly in the living room, without decomposing the decor! Others, very practical, fold and are easily carried away with friends or in the garden. Traditionally, they offer two positions: swing or fixed. The current trend is to sophisticate the technique and propose natural swings, according to the movements of the baby. However, the current models are very comfortable and well thought out to respect the morphology of small. Some are very designed and settle proudly in the living room, without decomposing the decor! Others, very practical, fold and are easily carried away with friends or in the garden.

Security

  • French standard NF EN 12 790 of June 2009 applies to fixed or folding deckchairs for children weighing up to 9 kg or not sitting alone. It determines safety requirements regarding locking the folding system, no risk of pinching or fingering of the fingers, but also the angle and height of the seat, the stability, the resistance of the carrying handles.
  • Always place the deckchair on the floor and not on a table or a bed (unless specifically designed), as it may tip over if the toddler wiggles. Alternatively, a larger child may have an idea of moving it.
  • Take the time (a few seconds at most) to tie the baby to the harness. Moreover, do not leave the handles accessible to the toddler: he can pass them around his neck …
  • Respect the weight and the maximum age recommended by the manufacturer. Indeed, from the moment when the child sits alone, wants to wiggle and move on his own, he can make sudden movements to disengage, bend and unbalance the deckchair.
