Can you sleep a baby on their tummy in the Sleepwrap?

We can give 'objective' advice only and share with you what we know from our and other parent’s experiences and subsequent feedback. Over the past 21 years we have heard from several mothers who have told us that tummy sleeping their baby in the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap has worked well for them. They were aware of the back sleeping recommendation.

The Inventor's three children and a myriad of parents over a period of 21years time tummy -slept their babies in the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap. And also over the past 21years the majority of parents that we have received feedback from have back or semi-side slept their babies in Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap and we are extremely proud of the safety record since 1992.

Paediatricians recommend this for certain conditions of the baby/child. The current recommendation is to sleep baby on their backs. Research shows this is safer for babies assuming they are not wrapped in a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap. We hope this is helpful.

When and how is my baby able to be taught to turn within the Sleepwrap?

Babies tend to develop in 'stages' rather than ages. Once babies are between 7-9 months, have a strong neck and upper body strength control, are trying to roll over and back again simply use your observational and gut instinct by using your hands to gently teach / help baby to roll ...they usually just 'get it' quite quickly. Pick a time when you are both relaxed and make it a little fun :)

All babies are different of course and this may be a frustrating period for everyone as they go through this developmental stage of rolling over and back again. Whether in a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap or not baby will be going through this stage.

Without the Sleepwrap during this stage babies may end up in awkward, cold or potentially dangerous positions. They may also be at risk of standing, climbing and falling.

This happens to nearly one in five 0-2yr olds who are hospitalized each year from falls...being just the Tip Of the Iceberg! Lots of tummy time and floor time on a nice, clean, solid warm mat out of drafty areas encourag

Do babies seem to like being wrapped in the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product?

Parents tell us that their babies seem to find it very cosy and comfortable, and that their babies seem to sleep better, longer and more restfully. There are hundreds of years of well documented evidence which show that babies usually like the feeling of security from being wrapped or swaddled. The use of the Sleepwrap product allows either a total swaddling combination and/or the shoulders, arms and legs to be totally free. The baby’s body has a lovely degree of natural, flexible movement.

An older baby out of the high SIDS risk period can/may be taught how to turn freely within the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product and sleep in their desired sleep position. For young babies, often the cot/crib is far too big an area to have no ‘boundaries’. You can make a lovely cosy, nest in the cot/crib with the help of the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product.

To add to babies cosy comfort in winter time you may also consider using a hot water bottle (temperature tested on your wrist to ensure it is warm NOT hot). The water bottle can be placed on top of the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap while you are feeding or attending to baby. The ‘warm’ NOT hot water bottle can be placed at babies feet or next to their body for a little while to help them settle. When the product has been used together with loving, trust building parenting skills, older babies tend to do the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product up themselves.

This is because they like the feeling so much and it has become a positive sleep association. In a nutshell it gives them a feeling of security, therefore a more restful sleep and consequently a better sleep for the entire family. Some mothers also use the large Travel model for safer co-sleeping.

The Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product was invented as a ‘wrap’ and aid to nurturing positive parenting for use during sleep and the few moments before and after sleep. Good loving, relaxed human supervision is the best supervision.
