Sleep is the Holy Grail of parenthood — yet most new moms and dads are shocked by how elusive slumber becomes once baby arrives. The designers at Hushamok know how important it is for moms, dads and newborns to catch some shut-eye, so they created a dreamy sleeping haven for baby in their Organic Baby Hammock and Stand. Designed to provide a cozy transition to life outside the womb, Hushamok’s organic hammock is an ingenious alternative to baby bassinets or cribs. The hammock‘s natural swinging and rocking motion helps induce sleep and enables baby to sleep longer. Babies suffering from infant colic and reflux will also be especially comforted and relieved by the constant swaying motion.  The hammock comes with two matching organic sheets, and a mattress that is entirely free of flame retardants. The stand is crafted from sustainably harvested European Beechwood, a wood chosen especially for its wear-resistance and strength, and is held together with aluminum castings, which receive top marks for durability, recyclability and sustainability. Hushamok’s hammock and stand’s sleek design also makes it a gorgeous, aesthetically pleasing addition to any space.

We’re thrilled to be giving away this beautiful Hushamok Organic Baby Hammock and Stand worth $492 to one lucky Inhabitots reader.

  5. Tasha says:

    We are now happy parents of a baby girl and we have a 4 year old son as well and he loves to “read” to the baby the story of “Snowflake”, the story relevant to the festival Michaelmas. It tells of being born into the world anew and having to face being alone, and darkness, then taming the dark to find the light, and finding your light and not being alone anylonger. I think he likes it mostly because of the dragon that’s in it. On a different note, we would and could use a wonderfully designed piece of hammock comfort for our little one to soothe her so that I can spend more time with my boy!

    My favorite book to read to kiddos is “The Three Questions” by Jon J. Muth. I just love the message of this book. It’s about a boy named Nikolai, who is trying to find the answers to three important questions in life so he will always know how to be a good person. He ends up finding the answers (and inner peace) by helping others along the way. My toddler loves this book, but my new babe is still a bit young for this. I can’t wait to share the story with her too.

    The Story of the Easter Bunny by Sheila Black, it is a great story that teaches children three main lessons, to just be themselves, to accept others for who they are and to help those in need without worry about what is in it for them. I absolutely loved this story as a child and the illustrations are wonderful.

  46. Ashflutter says:

  56. tonyayoga says:

    We have quite a few but “Goodnight Gorilla” is so fun for us because we have stuffed gorilla friend to read along with us. It is such a picture simple book that inspires a curiousity in our one year old. She loves to pause at the all black page with just the eyes

  57. michellebhenry says:

    I love reading the Paper Bag Princess to my daughter who is 5 months and my 4 year old son loves all seek and find books.

  58. Valarie says:

    For our 4 year old, any of the Bumblebee Boy books because they are well written with good illustrations and the fill the need for SUPER-HEROS! For our 2 year old, anything he’ll sit still for which usually means no book and rather a story that mommy tells while we walk around the room getting ready for sleep. We are also expecting so this hushamok would be a wonderful win and we could all read to the baby while he/she drifts off to sleep 🙂

  59. sgs says:

    Where the Wild Things are ….because it encourages imagination and was my favorite book as s child.

  60. nicolerinaldo says:

    My favorite book to read to my daughter is called Tenzin’s Deer. It’s about love, caring, healing, nature and not holding on to something. Its beautiful!

  61. TaylorHengenNewman says:

    Our most recent picture book discovery is “Wink, The Ninja Who Wanted to Be Noticed.” My two-year-old LOVES it, and requests it many times in a row. Its story is witty, its images are cool and cute (paper cutout creativity to the max) and its message is one I wholeheartedly approve of: that each person’s personality can shine when we find a way/place/path to express ourselves fully, just as we are.

    By the way, I never enter giveaways but WOW do I hope to win this one. Here’s hoping! Thanks for the opportunity. 🙂

  62. amandajiggles says:

  65. david francescutti says:

    Our baby is due November 1, 2012. We don’t know what it is yet but we do know it will be loved. the story i look forward to sharing with our child is called a new blanket. It is about an old woman who lives in a drafty old cabin. Her grown children each bring her a new blanket to stay warm but she hands these off to her cow, goat and dog, recognizing them each for the help they afford her. It is a beautiful story that extoles the virtues of gratitude, selflessness and love.

  66. castlekella says:

    Anything, I would be happy to read a shopping list to my future baby. The joy of having a baby and just being about to sit and read before bedtime would be amazing.

  67. nlinsday says:

    Where the Wild Things Are, It’s a favorite from my childhood.

  68. NThien says:

    A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni-a classic story about wanting to belong and friendship with beautiful watercolor illustrations.

  69. blugrn says:

    I can’t wait to read classics like Little Red Riding Hood and and Hansel and Gretel. They are a bit on the dark side but for some reason i knew that it was just a fairy tale when I was little. A kids imagination runs wild with these stories and is able to keep going long after the story has ended.

  70. aahaft says:

    I can’t wait until my children appreciate the book I Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. For now we read the usual- Mama Llama Red Pajama, Moo Baa LaLaLa, Goodnight Mood, Something From Nothing and their Life Books a book sort of album I have put together for each of them with pictures showcasing their different stages and events in their life and written in storybook form

  71. jaimeann7 says:

    My favorite book to read to my 1 year old daughter is I’ll See You In the Morning. It’s such a cute little message about everyone and all the creatures going to sleep and to not be afraid of the dark. I actually saw this amazing organic hushamok after my daughter grew out of it and it would have been great for her reflux since I could never lie her flat. We are trying for baby number 2 so I would love to have this!

  72. novellie26 says:

    We love to read THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT at night time to flourish their imagination. I love the series because it was passed down by two generations and always reminds me of our summers at grandma’s house. My children love that I read the books in two more languages, as they get to know their parents native languages. With a new baby on the way, our daughter now picks books from the same series, explaining that she can’t wait to read them to her new baby sister.

  73. Lindazenk says:

    Winnie the Pooh because that is what my mom read to me. It is timeless

  78. LorraineMorford says:

    We read so many! But Goodnight Moon is an all time favourite, especially because my oldest can help read it to my youngest.

    Joel the Troll by William Friis. It’s a wonderul book written for his grand children.

  84. arh78 says:

    I love “Guess how much I love you” it is so cute and the drawings are beautiful

  85. nelle brien says:

    My favorite bed time book to read is Goodnight Moon right now to read to our 6 month old. It’s a simple story with lots of opportunities to point out easy to say words.

  86. neversremedy says:

    I’ve been replenishing my stock of early childhood readers, especially Sendak and Seuss. One I know I can’t wait to read to this one is, “In the Night Kitchen.”

  87. sakisura says:

    We change our favorite books to read our son seasonally… right now our favorite is little goblins ten for Halloween. The story rhymes and the illustrations are outstanding

  88. asemel says:

    right now it is Once Upon an Ordinary School Day
    (Colin McNaughton (Author), Satoshi Kitamura (Illustrator))
    My son loves it and the pictures are beautiful. He says, the words by himself all the time, so the book makes him happy.

  89. organicmommyluv says:

    Ernie’s Big Mess, it was my favorite growing up. My dad had it memorized and so did us kids =) It’s fun to share that with my own children now.

  90. stepanie2 says:

    one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish by dr. suess. a classic that always gets the job done

  91. aformo says:

    We used to read Goodnight Moon, but lately, Little Critter books have been the chosen pre-sleep read!

  95. rainemarie says:

    I love Goodnight Moon and I Love You Forever. Both are beautiful books. I even get teary eyed with I Love you Forver. I love being a mother. 😉

  96. sarahwomer says:

    Jamberry! One berry two berry pick me a blueberry… 🙂 because it’s such a fun book, stimulates the imagination and awakens the nature explorer in us all. Plus whatever my first born wants to read to the baby as it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever to have him sit and read books to my tummy and now to his baby brother (even though he’s only a week old and is asleep– we know he feels the love). 🙂

  97. amanda alvarado says:

    I look forward to reading Goodnight Moon and Where the Wild THings Are because they were my favorites growing up!

  98. vimal_koshy says:

    I usually narrate lullabies to my kid as it makes her sleep faster and I can get my sleep too 🙂

  99. jenkcrewell says:

    The story I look forward to reading the most is the hungry caterpillar, it was one of my favorites, just had my baby boy yesterday!!!

  100. osusdontcry says:

    I don’t have a particular book that I like to read to my children, but I do love our ritual of mom, dad, and 2 girls snuggling down together in our family bed to read together every night. This hammock would be perfect for our newest addition-until s/he is ready to join us in the bed at night.

  101. goatmama says:

    Where the Wild Things are! One of my all time favorite books. I can’t wait to read it to my little one!


  102. greenspan says:

    the story of King David! Shmuel it starts and continues to Kings. It is a great inspirational story how to be humble and still dedicated to being right. It is a great story how to be a leader of a nation and still be a servant of God. It has its ups and downs and really makes you think about being successful in life. King David is the true hero of the common day. We don’t know what it’s like to have a king chase us, and then have our own son dethrone us.
    Me and my wife just got married a month ago and can’t wait to have our first kid!
    She is already an aunt to over 20 kids.

    Shalom from Israel!

  103. mgilbert06 says:

    Very Hungry Caterpiller is always a favorite here. The boys also love when daddy “reads” Good Dog Carl, he always comes up with a good story!

  104. tellagraham says:

    I’m looking forward to reading The Warm Fuzzy Story by Claude Steiner with my son. It was my favorite story when I was a child. It taught me that love was meant to be given freely, rather than hoarded.

  105. 2percentOwl says:

    Goodnight moon because it is so sweet and soothing to honor everything we are a part of.

  106. mfergie says:

    My personal favorite is where the wild things are. Neither of my daughters has enjoyed it yet but I find that I enjoy their favorites just as much even if I don’t really like the book. The enjoyment they get from their favorites is more enjoyable to me than the book we are reading. Since the baby we are expecting is a boy I’m looking forward to seeing how his favorites differ from the girls.

  107. ivoryempress says:

    My three year old loves reading Angel in the Waters. I am pregnant with my second and we like to talk about the baby’s home and the angel that lives there too.

  108. vegmamma says:

    “Goodnight Little Bear!” I loved reading this bedtime story to my nieces…
    Now, my husband and I read this lovable story about a Dad Bear looking all
    over for his Baby Bear, to put him to bed! It entertains the child and the parent
    who enjoys reading to their child/children.
    I follow you on Facebook and am an email subscriber.
    Also, I “LIke” Hushamok on Facebook.
    Many thanks, Cindi

  112. Cindy Young says:

    I love The Giving Tree.

  113. MeadCrenshaw says:

    I love to read The Little Golden Books which I’ve saved all my life from my childhood. My mom used to read and collect them for me!

  114. jennipugh says:

    Love you Forever! I loved that book as a child and share it with all of my children.

  115. melodyalbrecht says:

    I can’t wait to read How Much I love You, it has been one of my favorite books for a long time. We just had a baby boy on Friday, this would be beyond amazing

  116. kahoyle says:

    I love to read the Nightlights books. They have really beautiful messages hidden in their lovely short stories. Through imagination and mediatation, the stories help our little boys find calm and the sleep they need!

  117. HB says:

    Books come and go – but our bedtime song never changes – Little Raindrop by Justin Roberts. Beautiful song for a beautiful guy.

  118. luvmyruby says:

    Our favorite is “I Love you through and through” because my 3yr old can read it with me 🙂

  119. mikerochesky says:

    “Oh The Places You Will Go” Who wouldn’t want to learn as much as your child?

  120. daniellarbz says:

    Ferdinand the Bull. Beautiful book, with wonderful illustrations. Shows children that it’s alright to not be part of the crowd and to follow your inner voice. No need to be someone who you are not.

  121. Landryl says:

    We’ve been reading the Beatrix Potter books. I love the old-fashioned language and explaining what things are. They always lead to interesting discussions because they don’t spell the moral out as much as modern books.

  122. sugarpaws says:

    Ryland gets not one but sometimes 3 bedtime stories read to him every single night without fail. He looks forward to either Mommy, Daddy, Ti-Ti..or a comination, to read to him! My favorite is whatever one that he picks out that evening..though a favorite lately has been “Good-Night Construction Site”. There are so many! I believe that this is aVERY IMPORTANT part of his routine!

  123. jodytx says:

    we are reading this week…’s the great pumpkin, charlie brown! Piper has discovered Halloween! she loves spooky reads! funny 2 yr old! hoping for a sibling!

  124. benizhere says:

    It would have to be the very hungry caterpiller to read to my 3 year old daughter. The hushamok is just like a cocoon so we can pretend to be caterpillars!

  125. kevinmcc says:

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a great book to read to your kids.

  126. Jason.Thomas-WH says:

    Good Night Moon. It was my daughter’s first favorite book. She wanted it read to her every night. Haven’t read it to her in year since she is 14 now, but the story is permanent in my memory!

  127. znufkin1 says:

    The Cat in the Hat-dr seuss

  128. sssayesss says:

    I love reading to my children, but I cannot wait until they are old enough for me to read Roald Dahl books to them. My grandmother read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to my dad and his brothers and my father read it to my sibliings and myself. I would love to pass on this tradition with nightly chapter reading!

  134. careeza13 says:

    My son loves How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight and I Dreamt I Was A Dinosaur. A friend got him some dinosaur magnets for his 2nd birthday, so he has been learning the names of all the dinosaurs. I think its hilarious that he can say Diplodocus. But his favorite is T-Rex!

  135. RandiS says:

    Love You Forever. It was my favorite as a child and I still love it to this day…such a beautiful story!!

  136. jadejohnson84 says:

    I cant wait to read The Faraway Tree Stories by Enid Blyton to my kids as I have only Enid Blyton to thank for introducing to me the wonderful and fascinating world of books. I love the idea of fantastical friends living in a tree and visiting weird and wonderful lands. There will always be adventures waiting for them, whatever happens; funny, magical adventures that will delight children again and again. I loved the sheer use of imagination throughout this book…it’s exciting ways leaves you wanting to read more and more. Enid Blyton and The Faraway tree will always have a special place in my heart.

    i would play
    this song.
    maybe the kermit the frog version .
    and speak of the love and light we all essentially are n to never forget that.
    such an important lesson that even us as grownups wander from.

    I love to read I Love You Forever and Stellaluna. Both of them show how strong a mothers love is. And Stellaluna has some funny pictures that make the kids laugh 🙂

    If You Give a Moose a Muffin Big Book by Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia Bond.

  141. doogy2223 says:

    My son will not go to sleep without me reading him “My Dad Loves Me!” by Marianne Richmond
    It’s a simple book we read together. It shows a different father and child animal on each page doing something special. He shows me the “baby” and the Daddy” in each picture… and we act out the gesture. It’s a great bonding book. It was actually given to me for my newborn by someone at work but he’s not ready for it yet… but my 2 year old loves it.

  142. shazzylynne says:

    I love to read I See Me…. She loves the pictures and I love the message that everything is a mirror for who she really is.

  143. Delana@inhabitots says:

    Thank you inhabitots for this wonderful give away! My favorite book to read my daughter right now is called When the Earth Wakes, by Ani Rucki, the illustrations are simply beautiful! The story is about the earths seasons, and the illustrations tell that story with a Parent bear and a baby bear playing during spring, summer, fall and finally winter! My husband loves to read to her from the brothers Grimm Fairy Tales, because he likes the life lessons you find in each story and he gets really into the characters and does different voices for each one, our daughter doesn’t take her eyes off him! We are trying for our second child and the hushamok would be great to have in our home!

  144. heygeorgiegal says:

    I love to read Jazz Baby by Lisa Wheeler to my 22 month old daughter. She claps along with the story and kisses the baby “night night” at the end. 🙂

  145. GrandmaAlana says:

    GOODNIGHT MOON was my favorite to read to my son, now it’s my favorite to read to my grandchildren. Such a classic for sweet dreams.

  146. lizwiz says:

    Definitely ‘Where The Wild Things Are” and everything else by Maurice Sendak. Shel Silverstien a close second! I was a wild child and my husband has a boundless imagination, so I want to read books that make my kids realize anything is possible, but also that family and closeness are important.

  147. Kumachan says:

    The Great Valentines Day Balloon Race by Adrienne Adams. This book was my wifes favorite book as a little girl, and she just found a copy of the book after months of searching. I would be a monster not to wear out the pages of this book for our little one.

  148. CoutureKids says:

    I love love love “Sometimes I like to Curl up in a Ball.” I’ve read it every night for 2 years!!!!

  149. Bebo says:

    I like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle. Kids are very curious and this book brings a lot of curiosity. They want to know what will happen to the cute little caterpillar if he continues to eat. Not only is this book colorful and fun to read, it starts to teach the kids the days of the week and how to count. After reading it about 10-20 times, the kids will then tell YOU what the catepillar will do next! It’s very exciting and puts a smile on your face when the kids feel like you don’t know the answer and they need to tell you. =)

    Where the Wild Things Are <3

  151. sruxin says:

    The bedtime stories I most look forward to reading to my three year-old son are, naturally, those that elicit the greatest, most animated reaction from him. He likes a great story, but for him the visuals are just as important as the narrative itself. So we gravitate towards highly detailed, graphically-rich books like Richard Scary’s “What Do People Do All Day” or Maurice Sendak’s “Some Swell Pup.” Through these, his imagination takes the furthest flight, as we depart from the story and he takes over the narrative, asking “what’s this?” and “why that.”

  152. delina says:

    Robert Munch’s ‘Love you Forever:” was my favorite book to read to my children. It made me cry every single time so the reasons for reading it have more to do with my own childhood and lack of relationship with my own parents….and it is a wonderfully loving story

  153. becsav79 says:

    I am an Australian Early Childhood Educator and I read many stories to my special little people at Kindy! Two of our favourites are “Where the Wild Things Are” and “Guess How Much I Love You”. xoxo We could really do with one of these in our Nursery, it is so beautiful! xoxo

  154. verosl says:

    I hope to read her my own illlustrated story someday. I hope to write a multi-cultural children’s story which can be translated to many languages and is read in two at a time to encourage bilinguism in young children. I have illustrated a children’s book previously but now that I am going to have a child of my own, I know she will be an inspiration and I look forward to reading it to her at night after she has given it her approval and it is in it’s first edition.

  155. NY2Vegas says:

    Goodnight Moon was always a favorite of my twins. It wasn’t too long winded, it had a rhyming scheme, and my daughters were able to remember the words. My cousin just gave birth to a boy and I plan to read him that book too.

  156. Jaywar says:

    Knuffle Bunny, We have your bunny!

  207. MTutko says:

    We love On the Night You Were Born. My first is 16 months and some abnormal ultrasounds gave us a good scare during pregnancy. It still makes me tear up when I read it to my perfectly healthy little man!

  208. teawithtori says:

    I love reading Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin by Tad Hills. The illustration and text is adorable, it’s easy for my daughter to follow along, and it’s getting her ready for Halloween. We usually read it a few times before we move on to the next book.

  209. Femme says:

    I love reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle to my Mr 2.5 years. He loves to join in, since he knows the words by heart now. I can’t wait to read it to #2, whenever he or she may come to be! This is such an awesome prize!

  210. ElizabethRodriguez says:

    Our favorite bedtime story (we read our 22 month old 2 books, goodnight moon and buenas noches a todos) is buenas noches a todos by Sandra Boynton. I love that the story follows his bedtime routine (except for the exercise on deck). He feels connected to the characters and the routine has made bedtime anything but a battle! I can’t wait to start reading this book to my second son, due next week, 10/23!

  211. jen.momoftwo says:

    My favorite: Curious George.

  215. alealani says:

    I look Forward to reading our 4 month old son Ke’ohi Professor Noah’s spaceship, a book I had as a kid. It tells about how the earth was getting polluted and the animals didn’t know what to do. Owl says he saw a great invention and the man who built it must know how to help. They go find professor Noah, who has built a spaceship to take the animals and himself to a new world in the future which is not polluted. They accidentally go to the past though, but it is still not polluted. It’s such a colorful book & even though he doesn’t understand it yet, it has a powerful message I am glad he will grow up learning.

  216. DLeahman says:

    The Giving Tree because it is one of the best memories for me growing up as a child. That little green book with the little red apple, the tall tree and the little boy forever stick in my mind when I think of a child’s book. It didn’t matter how old anyone was in the family – it was read to all and a lot. This little book has been passed on to my nieces and nephew as well. A wonderful book at any age!!

  217. Heathertmeeks says:

    Although our tiny little flower child is still in mommy’s tummy, her little ears can still hear. That’s why mommy and daddy like to read ” where the wild things are” before bed. This book teaches children to be themselves and to express individuality. It also teaches children to have a creative imagination. We want our baby to grow up and be who they are meant to be, not who the world expects them to be.

  218. MelisaCianci says:

    I love you as big as the world ” David Van Buren”. I love this book and cannot wait to read it to my precious litttle princess because I love her because she is mine, and because she is a beautiful gift to both my husband and I. As the book says ” I love you because you are you”, and I will love her because she is who she is.
    Such a wonderful message to share with your child, that you love them. Without love there is nothing!

  219. shartrey says:

    There are soo many great books I could choose but I definitely have to go with Goodnight Moon. I love this book!! I used to read it to my baby brother almost every night when he went to bed. I’m really looking forward to reading it to my lil one when he is born.

  220. Donnalynn038 says:

    I loved reading “Goodnight Moon”. When they got old enough to talk, they would say the sentences when I would pause.

  221. DP18045 says:

    This hammock looks and sounds so neat….just perfect for a newborn and I was so excited when it popped up that I could enter a chance to win it!
