Water-cradle / cradle


Cradle is a necessity for each family with an infant,but the traditional cradle cannot provide the baby with much interactivity.However,water has a sound balance.It's true that a baby has been living in water for ten months before he is born.So,the water cradle can satisfy parts of the feeling similiar to that in mother's womb,in which even a subtle movement can produce a corresponding feedback.In addition,the peaceful sound and the stability of water can contribute to a sound sleep.Half of the lower part of the water-cradle is a ballon-liked hollow capsule which will automatically shape a recess to embrace the baby when filled with gas.
