Dandle®LION Crown Cradle

The Crown Cradle may reduce the potential impact to the infant’s head by redistributing contact pressure, supporting the cranium, and providing a pathway for more symmetrical skull growth. It helps the bedside caregiver to confidently developmentally position the baby, provide appropriate alignment of the spine, and support the developing brain and skull.
