SNUGBAGS™ are proud supporters of Sids and Kids and we help to raise awareness for Safe baby sleep conditions.
SIDS and Kids is often asked by parents about appropriate sleeping conditions for their babies, such as what sort of bedding to use, and what room temperature is best. These are important issues as babies control their temperature through the face and head.
Sleeping baby on the back and ensuring that the face and head remain uncovered during sleep is the best protection from overheating and suffocation.
The association between overheating and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has been known for several years. Current research suggests that if your baby becomes too hot, the risk of SUDI is increased. Overheating can be caused by room heating, high body temperature and excessive clothing or bedding.
Here are some answers to these questions and advice on safe sleeping.
