Picture Perfect: Seamus Harrison's picture of son Maz sleeping peacefully in a hammock under a jury-rigged umbrella won the family first prize in the NZ Herald's summer photo competition.

Hammock Camping advises parents and caregivers of infants and children to always remain physically present and actively vigilant when children are using hammocks.
All infants and children must have continuous adult supervision when using any hammock.
Hammocks are designed for 'adult relaxation' and are not intended to be used as a swing or playing device for any children.
