The Amby Baby Hammock was an invention of necessity. It was created by Ambrose Hooi in Australia in the late eighties as a measure to help his daughter who had become an unsettled, restless and colicky baby at 4 weeks of age. This led Ambrose to design a rudimentary hammock that immediately helped Ying-Li to sleep and better deal with her colic. (Learn more about the story at amby.com.au). This has subsequently been the experience of thousands of parents and babies who have moved across to using a hammock rather than a traditional cot.
