The Scandinavians sure know how to make stylish furniture and the so-ro cradles are no exception (so-ro means “be calm” in Norwegian). These gorgeous-looking cradles are designed with forward rocking motion – as opposed to side-to-side – so the same movement when you rock the bub in your arms which ‘according to research of the brain’s interpretation of sensory input, forward rocking motion is the most comfortable and soothing motion for the baby”. Another fab feature of the so-ro cradle is that it has three grades of elevation at the head, which aids healthy breathing, and is especially helpful for infants with colds or stuffy noses.
The core of the super stylish so-ro cradle is made of beautifully curved plywood Baltic birch with American walnut or laminated white. And there’s a double version for twinnies that has a removable dividing wall!!!
Unfortunately it costs an eye-watering $800 (or a *gulp* $1200 for the twin version). But don’t let the price tag deter you, after all, if Jennifer Garner and Torri Spelling can buy one for their newborns, why can’t we?! (don’t answer that).
