“If you’re about to become a parent or know someone who is, consider buying one of their cradles. Not only will it help keep one baby healthy and happy, it’ll do the same for a family in South Asia where such a gift could be lifesaving.”

“I was surprised to see how content my baby was, as soon as I put him inside Giving Cradle! He instantly cooed and rocked himself– it made him SO comfortable and happy! Plus — putting it together was a snap. Such easy and effortless assembly, and a much more lightweight and portable build, compared to other cribs and cradles we’ve tried! Thank you, Giving Cradle!”

— Natalie

“My baby sleeping safely is the one thing I have been so anxious about as a new parent. I would constantly wake through the night to check my newborn’s breathing, so when I saw the Giving Cradle with its breathable mesh sides I was sold. Until this point I hadn’t found a mesh cradle that I could easily move around the house and it makes me feel so good that it gives back to a family in need.”

— Charlotte

“Oh how I wish I had had a Giving Cradle for the first 5-6 months before my babies started sitting up! It’s off the ground, you can see the baby in it, it rocks, it meets all the highest safety standards, and it’s soooo much easier to move than those folding playpens. It’s my new perfect baby shower gift and I will keep it in mind for my grandchildren!”

— Dr. Jyoti


Exceeds Safety Standards


The Giving Cradle has been tested to make sure it is free from harmful chemicals such as lead, phthalates, arsenic and mercury.

No Flame Retardants

The Giving Cradle and the accompanying mattress meet all flammability requirements under US and Canadian regulations.

Safety Certified

The Giving Cradle has been certified safe by the Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association. It exceeds all mandatory safety standards for the United States and Canada. See below for the full list of regulations.

Promotes Safe Sleep

Strong and Stable

Did you know that bamboo is stronger than steel? The Giving Cradle has undergone vigorous strength and stability tests to ensure its safety.

Flat, Firm Mattress

To reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), it is essential that an infant sleeps on their back on a firm, flat surface to help prevent their airways from becoming restricted. The Giving Cradle has a flat, firm base built into the mattress.

Breathable Mesh

Good ventilation helps reduce the risk of SIDS. The Giving Cradle has breathable mesh fabric on all four sides, from the top of the cradle all the way down to the mattress. This allows your baby to breathe easily and to be visible from all angles.

Easy On Parents

Lightweight and Portable

For the first 4-6 months, an infant should sleep in the same room as its caregiver during daytime naps and at night to be easily monitored. The Giving Cradle can be conveniently moved around the home to wherever you are with your baby.

Removable, Washable Fabric

The Giving Cradle’s fabric component can be easily removed from the bamboo frame and washed on a gentle cycle.

Waterproof Mattress Cover

The cover provides daily protection from accidents and can be washed on a gentle cycle for easy cleanup.

Space-Saving Design

The cradle measures approximately 33 x 18 x 16 inches (L x W x H) and weighs only 12 lbs.
