    Mine is in a hammock now, he is 10 and probably should have been in one earlier if his dad was not so overly cautious

    My 2 year old has been sleeping in a hammock since he was born :-)

    It's excellent when we have a family outing. When it's his nap time, we just hang him up in some bush, and off he goes to la-la land :-)
