Baby king platform bed is outfitted with a pacifier
A new baby king platform crib bed has been designed for a mother and her baby by the company Bed, to help the child sleep more soundly and stay asleep longer.
The bed features an extra-large pillow that is adjustable to fit the baby and the child’s height.
Bed, a company that specializes in child-friendly bedding, made the bed in partnership with a nonprofit that is helping to make sure the U.S. child and youth population is well-nourished and safe, the New York Times reported.
Bed’s first product, the King Bed, was introduced in 2012.
The company has since introduced the King-Ace, a baby-size bed with a different design and a built-in pacifier.
Bed plans to expand its line of King-Beds and expand to a wider variety of babies.
The company is working with the U-M Health System to design a bed specifically for a child, the Times reported, citing the company’s CEO, John O’Donnell.
O’Donnell said in a statement the company had worked with the University of Michigan Children’s Hospital to develop a bed that was easy to install and was designed to make the King platform crib as effective as possible for children.
Bed also works with other organizations, including the Ulysses S. Grant National Institutes of Health and the National Institutes for Health Children’s Vaccine Development Center, to develop technology to make it easier for parents to take their children to bed.
The product’s makers have also developed a sleep coaching program that parents can download to their devices and share with their children.
