Safe T Sleep® Sleepwrap® vs copycat and homemade products

 For all safety products it is wise to ENSURE SAFETY by knowing the origin, testing and safety history.

The patented Safe T Sleep® Sleepwrap® is the original and only safe Independently Hospital Clinically Proven* baby swaddling wrap. *

Since its conception in 1976 and it’s delivery on the world market in 1992, hundreds of thousands of babies worldwide have slept safely with a ‘Safe T Sleep’ Sleepwrap, with no reported Cot Death/SIDS/SUDI fatalities or injuries! This speaks loudly for itself.

It is the most practical, portable and versatile baby wrap as it will fit over all types of traditional and modern swaddling, sleepwear, sleeping bags and beds worldwide.

Safe T Sleep products are made from high quality, specifically constructed, breathable, 100% natural cotton fabric that will safely last for one baby aged Newborn – 2years old.

Beware of untested imitations and over-used second-hand safety products.

Copycat products appear to be the same and of similar quality, however they provide no ‘evidence’ of trialing, testing or a proven safety record. They have much less history in the market, relying simply on the record of the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product over the years.  In the absence of clinical research and medical endorsement, it is uncertain whether these other products are constructed well enough and sufficiently durable to keep a baby safe for an extended period of time, and so may pose a significant risk for babies.

Our Mission: Sleep safety and comfort for babies. Peace of mind for parents, grandparents and caregivers.

Every year Cot Death/SIDS/SUDI (sudden unexpected death of infants) and mostly accidental suffocation still claim the lives of thousands of babies worldwide. Every year approximately one in seven babies aged 0-2years who are hospitalized due to falls, are from preventable falls from cots and beds.

Safe T Sleep founder and innovator Miriam van Gisbergen has nursed some of these injured babies. She has dedicated the majority of her working life to helping young mums, evidence-based research, positive -parenting education, quality and reliable business procedures and baby product safety. About us.
