Going back to the womb
The Original TummyTub is a new concept which claims to ease the transition from the comfort of the mother’s womb. Babies naturally adopt the foetal position and quickly calm and relax.
Why it matters
Capitalising on the strong parental bonds that exist, baby products have long since positioned themselves as the best/most comfortable/healthiest for your baby. With innovations like the TummyTub and the baby paint which are supposed to improve development are we seeing that a higher level of benefit is becoming necessary?

People who suffer from sleep apnea – a sleep disorder characterised by abnormal pauses in breathing – now have a new device that could help them get a better night’s sleep. Japanese scientists have developed a teddy bear shaped pillow (called Jukusi-kun) that monitors a person’s frequency of breath and blood oxygen levels. The bear then wakes them up with a “paw move” to correct their sleeping position.
