Why Would You Put A Baby in A Cage Like This?


'Have you ever seen these weird and scary looking baby cages before? Who would put their baby in one of these contraptions and why? The baby cage was invented and patented in 1923 by an American woman; Emma Read, but ironically the cage never really took off in America. 

According to the patent these wire cages enabled the baby to get a breath of fresh air and some therapeutic sunlight. The cage provided enough room for toys and play and “the cage could double as a place to sleep, with removable curtains working to prevent a draft.”'
