Why use Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap products with babies 9-months or older? or why bother using a Sleepwrap product if babies can undo the fastening strips?

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. The Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product was developed by a mother for her own children as an AID to positive parenting skills and safer sleeping practices.

In conjunction with nurturing, trust-building, relaxed human supervision, the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product helps prevent cot/crib, bed, bunk falls and aids with safer more comfortable restful and secure sleep. Just as a car seat is designed for safe travelling and not leaving baby in the car while shopping, the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product is designed for safe sleeping to help ensure your baby will not turn, creep, climb, fall or get cold during sleep and the few minutes before and after sleep.

Remember, the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product is not intended as a restraint for a wide-awake tossing infant. If you are experiencing sleep problems with your child, know that this is a common challenge with parenting and that there are many schools of thought and resources to assist you in the community and on the internet.

We at Safe T Sleep (NZ) Ltd will help you where we can.

The KISS Solution – Keeping It So Simple with the NEW Houdini Strip: The little Houdini Strip will give extra closure-protection to the babywrap part of the Sleepwrap making it even safer for little Houdini’s yet the product remains a comfortable ‘wrap’ with no harsh or potentially dangerous fixtures. It simply slips over the left side of the ‘babywrap’ part of the Sleepwrap and the right side of the ‘babywrap’ part simply slips underneath the NEW Houdini Strip.

Therefore, after you have fed, winded, changed, read and/or sang to, and cuddled baby, the last thing to lovingly and snugly wrap around your loved, relaxed, sleepy (not necessarily asleep) baby, is the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product. Then tuck a large sheet and/or breathable blanket right underneath the sides and bottom of the mattress.

Then give the linen a little tug so as to allow a little natural movement. Enquire about Safe T Sleep booklet on tips for better, safer sleeping

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

My baby turns around in the Sleepwrap product – what can I do?

The Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product was invented by a mother as a ‘wrap’ for use during sleep and just the few moments before and after sleep. It is not intended as a restraint.

Therefore if you wish to ‘help’ keep baby off the tummy you will need to follow the product instruction leaflet within the product package and also please see the safety options listed in Q12. Somewhere between six and twelve months, babies are at the developmental stage of experimenting with varied sleep positions.

Most parents prefer to keep their sleeping baby off the tummy for at least the first nine to twelve months (a good time to encourage tummy-time and rolling over is during supervised ‘floor time’.) NB: An older baby, who can turn from tummy to back and back again and is out of the high SIDS risk period, can be taught to turn within the Sleepwrap and sleep in their desired sleep position. Whether inside a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product or not, this developmental stage of turning onto the tummy would be taking place.

It is accepted internationally that tummy sleeping during the high SIDS risk period (approx 6-12 months) increases the risk of SIDS - cot death.

Remember, during this stage babies may also still be at risk of creeping into awkward, cold or dangerous positions. Refer to: NZ Medical Journal 2002: 115:193-4. There is also the risk of climbing and/or falling out of bed. Human supervision is the best supervision; the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product will give extra safety and comfort to baby and aid your peace of mind in conjunction with loving and regular supervision and skilled parenting techniques.

If you decide that your older baby, out of the high SIDS (cot death) risk period, can sleep in his/her preferred sleep position, ensure that the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap product goes around the MATTRESS REALLY TIGHTLY, although the ‘baby wrap’ part which goes around BABY should only be COMFORTABLY SNUG NOT TIGHT, allowing a flat hand to fit comfortably between baby’s chest and the Sleepwrap.

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.
