Being a parent is a full time job, and the work hours get extended a wee bit more if your young ‘un is still a baby! Well, one has to wait hand and foot for your little joy that eats, cries, pukes and poops. One actually has not even a single trace of energy left for anything else after attending to a toddler. But, looks like things might change for the better!
A team of researchers at Kyuushuu University in Japan have designed the Suima crib, which, they claim will rock your baby to sleep if it wakes up crying. As futuristic as it may sound, this idea works on a simplistic principle. The crib hears the baby cry on a microphone and then automatically sways side to side once in every 1.8 seconds, something like the movement of a parent’s arms when wrapped around the baby, to induce sleep.
Getting your hand on one of these Siam cribs is pretty easy too. You can rent one for approximately $100 or purchase one between $4,500 and $5,500. Boy, doesn’t it sound like such a dream! Now, you can actually neglect your kid for some time with a guilt-free conscience.
