Inglesina Electa: Is the Electa carrycot safe and ok for daily naps of a baby?

Di • 14 Mar 2023


My question about the Inglesina Electa is about the carrycot and its Welcome Pad. It is supposed to be medically conceived for the baby's head to mitigate the risk of Flathead Syndrome (plagiocephaly), and I have read just positive reviews about it! On the other hand, I have read concerns about these kind of mattresses or pillows. I wouldn't like to regret my purchase taking into account that one of their main assets is one of my main worries. I would like baby take their daily naps in it. In your experience, would it be a reason for concern?

I hope you can help me. Thank you!

Heya, Di,

I personally also heard only good stuff about Inglesina carrycots, and personally could recommend the carrycot for sure. I think I know what you mean - a baby should NOT use a pillow at all, as it is a health risk. The carrycot itself doesn't have one though; it is more of a shaped surface that helps with the right shape of the head. It is even possible for the baby to sleep on it on its belly, so I would not really worry. The whole Welcome pad can also be removed if you'd not find it useful - and the carrycot itself is really nice and large, so it will last you for at least those 6-8 months of age.

I think the carrycot is the best part of the stroller, and although I don't think the seat is bad, it is not as awesome honestly (and you will use the seat longer than the bassinet, so take that into consideration). I would not worry about the carrycot; they're really doing a good job there.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
