After new mothers give birth, their adorable infant is usually taken and placed into one of many hospital cribs. These cribs are often left beside the bed of the mother or kept in a corner of the room.

In order to create more intimacy between mother and child, the Gelderse Vallei hospital in the Netherlands offers clip-on cribs that attach to a mother's hospital bed. This sentimental innovation allows mothers to instantly bond with their baby from the comfort of their hospital bed. In addition to its charming qualities, the clip-on crib also relieves the stress of transporting back and forth to the crib, which makes breastfeeding, soothing and changing the baby much easier.

While the Gelderse Vallei hospital is the only institution to provide these hospital cribs, expecting mothers around the world are hoping this innovation soon touches their hometown.
