    […] Some day, in the distant future, any future offspring of mine will be copping a plea in front of a judge, saying that they went on several drive-by mailbox-whacking sprees because their mother was a dirty hippie. […]

    $107 for cardboard?!

    What happened to the age-old tradition of using a drawer for the tiny ones while traveling? No recycling needed – simply return to original use.

    BTW My daughter was horrified when I suggested the drawer to her while out with grandchild. After some confusion, I reassured her that the drawer would be removed before use as a baby bed, and granddaughter would not actually be shut up in the dresser.

    Okay, I will again comment on this item, as I did when the previous proto-type was first submitted….

    PLEASE READ THE ACTUALLY INTRO TO THIS PRODUCT WHICH IS NOT LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE! Here it is:
    Manufacturer: Green Lullaby.

    Designer: Ruth Keenan.

    Description: This cardboard cradle meets all the usual standards. It’s flame retardant and meets the EU’s safety and performance for cribs and cradles. However, unlike traditional cribs, you won’t need any tools to assemble it and you can either store flat when done or recycle the cardboard. Keep this crib in mind for traveling as well. For infants up to three months old.

    DID YOU MISS THE ‘FLAME RETARDANT’ PART!

    It is bad enough that this item is made from cardboard, most likely with all the wonderfully chemical filled glues, etc. to match but is also covered in retardant. Why are you promoting this product????

    Just because something may be considered eco friendly (though I cannot see how, as it is not even listed as having any recycled component), does NOT make it human friendly!

    Hi,
    I’m the designer of the eco-cradle.
    I usually don’t comment on what people have to say about this product, because I understand the concerns. I am a mother of two myself (I designed the cradle for my first born)
    But at Michelle Thomas’ concerns I felt that I had to react:
    The flame retardant that is used on the cradle is a propriety invention – a completely non-toxic non-hazardous material.
    The product itself (and packaging) contains cardboard made mostly of recycled cellulose, and all adhesives, print colors and additives
    are water based and non-toxic.
