The founders of Hushamok became new parents in 2006. Taking the advice of a friend to use a hammock to sooth their restless newborn, they loved the results but realized that they needed to update the traditional hammock that originated 1000 years ago. The modern and innovative designs they create enable babies to sleep comfortably on their backs and to gently elevate their heads to prevent symptoms of acid reflux. Hushamok hammocks are lightweight, durable, and easy to transport making them perfect for home as well as travel.
