THE ONLY INDEPENDENTALLY HOSPITAL CLINICALLY PROVEN SAFE T SLEEP SLEEPWRAP BABYWRAP.
Safe T Sleep is a 'wrap' to be used with loving, nurturing, trust-building parenting skills.
Safer more restful sleep for babies 0-2years plus.
NB: IT IS IMPORTANT TO CAREFULLY FOLLOW THE SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE INSIDE PRODUCT PACKAGING.
1. Wrap the Safe T Sleep® Sleepwrap® tightly around a good quality mattress.
The tighter that the main wrap is around a good quality mattress, the more flexibility there will be for baby in the 'baby wrap' part and the better the Sleepwrap will work.
It is helpful to tighten this main mattress wrap part before each sleep.
Simply place the 'baby wrap' part of the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap over any swaddling, wrap, sleeping bag or whatever sleepwear baby is wearing.
NB: TIGHT AROUND THE MATTRESS BUT NEVER TIGHT AROUND BABY, JUST 'SNUG' AROUND BABY. ALLOW A FLAT HAND TO BE PLACED BETWEEN THE BABY'S TUMMY AND THE 'BABY WRAP' PART.
NB: FOR AN OLDER BABY OUT OF THE HIGH RISK PERIOD (9MONTHS AND UP) WHO CAN TURN FROM TUMMY AND BACK AGAIN: LOOSEN THE SLEEPWRAP A LITTLE MORE AND USING YOUR HANDS GENTLY TEACH BABY TO ROLL WITHIN THE WRAP. AN OLDER BABY MAY SLEEP IN THEIR DESIRED SLEEP POSITIONS.
The Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap simply goes over any traditional or modern swaddles, babywraps and any type of sleep wear including sleeping bags.
The Sleepwrap may also be used on its own over just a nappy in very hot climates.
2. BACK SLEEPING
A: To help ensure the back sleeping position comfortably, wrap one side of the 'baby wrap' part around the baby's torso right up underneath the armpits.
B: Bring up the leg piece and place on top or tuck leg piece underneath main wrap if not wanting to use it.
C: Close the second 'baby wrap' part.
Always allow a flat hand to fit comfortably between baby’s chest and Sleepwrap.
3. SWADDLING AND SAFE T SLEEP – Back sleeping
* Most young infant’s newborn-8weeks sleep more restfully when wrapped.
* If you choose to swaddle ensure it is done correctly and safely with no loose ends.
* The Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap will help keep swaddling in place reducing the risk of suffocation.
* It is best to use soft, breathable swaddling fabrics e.g. Muslin.
NB: See Safe T Sleep’s newly edited book called ‘Baby Wisdom’ which includes more information, images and details on different swaddling techniques. https://www.safetsleep.com/products/baby-wisdom-book?variant=19770021061
We recommend ‘arms up’ swaddling with the Sleepwrap over the top to keep it in place.
Arms up swaddling helps prevent baby turning face down and also opens up baby’s rib cage for easier breathing.
However if you choose to back sleep your baby with swaddling arms down, ensure the Sleepwrap is ‘snug’ (not tight) to prevent swaddling coming loose.
If you choose to side-sleep ensure baby's arm and shoulder are gently placed forward on the side they are sleeping on. This plus a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap helps ensure baby does not turn face down during sleep.
When choosing to side-sleep, definitely ensure that baby's arms are gently wrapped or placed up high across the chest not arms down.
Remember to turn baby on alternate sides at each sleep to ensure a nice head shape.
Tummy sleeping is not recommended but if you do choose to do this it is very important to use a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap to help prevent creeping into dangerous, potentially suffocating positions. https://www.safetsleep.com/pages/suffocation-cot-death
The little Safe T Sleep MULTIwedge - suitable for baby’s 0-6months. TO help ensure a lovely head shape for baby.
Remember to turn your baby's head to alternate sides at each sleep.
The little Safe T Sleep MULTIwedge helps to stabilize the head position and also reminds parents which side they last turned baby’s head to.
Simply slide the MULTIwedge WELL underneath the mattress wrap part of the Sleepwrap beside baby's head and underneath the shoulder as in the images.
