Crescent Womb™ Solutions: Safe Sleep
What is "Safe Sleep"?
If you're a new parent, you may have heard the terms Safe Sleep or Safe to Sleep.
Safe to Sleep is a campaign by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and Safe to Sleep replaces the former back to sleep campaign, both existing in an effort to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
A key factor of Safe Sleep focuses on the importance of maintaining optimal oxygenation levels during sleep.
What Unsafe Sleep Practices Should I Avoid?
• Placing your baby on their side or stomach as a sleep position
• Bed sharing (Your bed is a potential danger for entrapment and suffocation risks!)
• Using soft bedding in the sleep environment, like pillows or memory foam that could create a pocket or indentation that your baby could roll into.
• Soft objects and loose blankets in the sleeping area (Head covering or entrapment could result from loose blankets. Wearable blankets are preferred.)
• Over bundling (airflow and temperature control are important!)
• Letting your baby fall asleep on a couch or armchair where they could roll off.
