Can the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap help prevent my baby from getting cold – kicking all the blankets off?

Yes, see FAQ #17.

Many babies like comfortable, secure boundaries and the feeling of being held and ‘tucked in’, they then sleep more restfully.

The Sleepwrap is used with all types of traditional, soft muslin & other modern babywraps like the Love To Dream, baby sleeping bags, pyjamas/sleepwear or any type of natural fibre babywrap and baby is tucked in with large, natural fibre sheets and breathable blankets that are large enough to tuck right underneath the mattress with a little ‘tug’ to allow feet to move. The Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap makes all these options a safer practice.

With a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap, almost all natural movement is possible for your baby during sleep; the Sleepwrap holds a newborn baby to approximately 6months of age gently and safely in a more secure position in any bed.  It is important to tuck a large sheet and/or blanket, preferably a soft breathable blanket, over baby and well underneath the sides and foot of the mattress to hold sheets and blankets in place.

As the baby is held in the centre of the cot, they are less likely to push themselves up into corners or down into the bottom of the cot, pulling their blankets out and then waking up cold.

Thousands of years of well documented evidence and observational experience show that babies often love to be ‘tucked in’, even when in a sleeping bag.

Remember it is unsafe to use duvets or fleece covers with babies under 2years old, because these are usually made from non-breathable, synthetic lightweight materials and are light and too easily kicked or pulled over babies face.
