KIKI & SEBBY are pleased to be supporting The Lullaby Trust Safer Sleep Week with helpful advice and presenting you with their safe and sustainable sleep products for your little one.
It is important to ensure that your baby’s room is at a comfortable temperature, ideally between 16 and 20°C. At this temperature, your baby should be fine in a well-fitting sleeping bag. KIKI & SEBBY suggest having a room thermometer so you can keep your baby at the right temperature.
Always put your baby to sleep on their back, never on their sides or front. Swaddling your little one can help to keep the baby on their back. KIKI & SEBBY advise swaddling until your baby can roll over, probably around 4 to 5 months. If you wish to continue to swaddle for longer then swaddle with your arms free or move into a well-fitting sleeping bag.
A sleeping bag helps to prevent your baby from slipping under blankets or covers, which can increase the risk of suffocation or overheating. Overall, using a sleeping bag as part of a safe sleep routine can provide parents with peace of mind that their child is getting the safe and restful sleep that they need for healthy development.
A safe cot is an empty cot. This also applies to moses baskets and cribs. No bumpers, soft toys or ill-fitting sheets and blankets. Swaddling with a muslin swaddle or a well-fitting sleeping bag is the safer option.
