Cradle Baby Bowl

Solid Surface Cradle Baby Bathing Bowl®

Newborns are in a “primary curve” C-shaped fetal position upon birth and for the first few months of life, they do not yet have the muscles to support their head. Research has shown that keeping an infant’s spine straight is not a sound physiological position and in addition to stressing the baby’s spine, it can also negatively influence the development of the baby’s hip joints (Dr. Evelin Kirkilionis, University of Freiburg).

Straightening the baby’s spine immediately after birth is not healthy.
Giving birth is stressful for the mother and healthcare providers have made advancements in reducing this stress for mothers. If you do a web search for reducing the stress of child birth you will find most results are geared toward reducing the stress for mothers.

At ASST, we know that reducing the stress of birth for the child is important to every parent and the desire for every parent is to have a happy, healthy baby. We worked with the labor and delivery team at St. Joseph Medical Center in Baltimore to develop our Cradle Baby Bathing Bowl®. Our Cradle Baby Bathing Bowl® is ergonomically designed to support the newborn and reduce the risk of Healthcare Acquired Infection. From Africa to Australia, our Cradle Baby Bathing Bowl® is part of new life around the world.


COVID-19 has changed our lives and it has changed commercial construction. Since March of 2020, we have all learned to adapt to the new world we live in. Commercial construction is one of the most dynamic environments to work in and with Covid-19, it has become even more challenging.

Social distancing, hand washing, wearing masks and health monitoring are some of the necessary requirements to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19. When working in an already fluid environment, commitment to these health measures is of utmost importance.

At ASST (pronounced ə-ˈsist), we understand the importance of mitigating the risk of spreading Covid-19 as well as the importance of getting projects complete. On March 13 2020, our management teams went into action. We knew that this was big and we knew that we had to make immediate changes for the safety of our employees and our customers. On March 15, we had all of our offices disinfected by a professional service. On March 16, all office employees started working remotely and immediately after that, we added shifts to our fabrication facilities to promote social distancing. These are just a few of the measures that we have in place to protect our employees and our customers.  We know that the world we live in is dynamic, just like the large commercial projects we successfully complete. Because of this, we are prepared to complete any Division 6/12 healthcare, education and corporate space project and do it safely.
