Safe Sleep

Keeping your baby safe while sleeping is of paramount importance. Swaddling is a useful way to help your baby settle & sleep on their back.

 

The Swaddle UP™ by Love To Dream™ allows you to more safely swaddle your baby*  

  • Without risk of any loose fabric unravelling during sleep time

  • With their arms UP which may impede involuntary rolling

  • With room to sleep in the correct position with legs flexed in the 'frog' position

  • With room to move their hips & legs

  • In a single layer of breathable fabric to reduce the risk of overheating

There are a few simple steps to remember when helping to settle and get your baby to sleep.

How To Help Your Baby To Sleep Safely:

  • Babies should always be placed to sleep on their backs. Side and tummy sleep positions are not safe.
  • Do not fall asleep with a baby in an adult bed or on a sofa. Bring them in bed to breastfeed and bond, but when it’s time to fall asleep, place them alongside your bed in a separate, safe sleep space.
  • Do not smoke while you are pregnant and do not expose babies to second-hand smoke after they are born. New research also warns of the dangers of third-hand smoke, the chemicals left behind on clothing, in homes and in cars.
  • For sleep, use a safety-approved crib with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet. Portable cribs and play yard style cribs are also a good choice. Place your baby’s separate, safe sleep space alongside where you sleep for at least the first six months.
  • Do not place babies to sleep on soft surfaces such as adult beds, waterbeds, sofas, chairs, quilts, and sheepskins.
  • Do not use loose blankets in a baby’s crib.  Layer clothing or use a wearable blanket or other sleeper clothing to keep baby warm AND safe during sleep.
  • Remove all soft bedding and other soft items from the sleep area, including pillows, blankets, quilts, bumper pads and stuffed animals and toys, before placing the baby to sleep.
  • Take care not to overheat babies with too much clothing or too warm of room. Keep temperature at what would be comfortable for a lightly clothed adult.
  • Use a pacifier at naptime and nighttime for the first year.
