Sleep in Safety, Grow in Style ~ Aden + Anais Cozy Slumber

October is SIDS Awareness month, and as a mother of three children I can attest to the fear that parents feel. I have witnessed the overwhelming fear and sadness that SIDS evokes in families. The helplessness that one feels is terrifying, and the best defense we have against SIDS is knowledge, and how to reduce the risk of SIDS.

Always lay your baby to sleep face up

Don’t smoke while pregnant and never smoke near your infant

Don’t let your baby get too hot

Lay your baby to sleep in an approved crib, on a firm mattress
Create a healthy lifestyle for you and your baby
If possible, breast feed your baby
Offer your baby a pacifier at all sleep times
Put your baby on his/her tummy to play when your baby is awake and supervised
Don't share sleep surfaces

Share these tips with everyone who cares for your baby

I discovered Aden + Anais too late to use when my children were babies, but, I am a big fan and suggest them to anyone who is looking for baby blankets. In fact, my brother and sister in law are expecting their first baby in early 2011 and one of the first things I told them to get was a Aden + Anais blanket.

Fact is though, that since I have received a Cozy Sleeping Bag for review, I am amending my initial recommendation to a say a sleeping bag.

While we know there are no guarantees, we do know that by following the tips I listed above, we can help to reduce the risk of SIDS. In my opinion one of the most important things we can do is ensuring our babies have a safe sleep. The Cozy Sleeping Bag replace loose blankets in your babies crib or bassinet. The Cozy Sleeping Bag is securely placed on your baby, (just as the name suggests as a sleeping bag). It zips up the front and they are available in four sizes - newborn to 24 months. They are made to fit your baby, and as your baby grows you can move up a size.

Aden + Anais Cozy Sleeping Bag is made of muslin cotton, which is very breathable, and helps to prevent overheating. Aden + Anais has perfected the art of using muslin for their baby blankets and sleeping bags. They realized the benefit of muslin that mothers have known for years and brought it mainstream and to the attention of mothers everywhere.

Thank you to Aden + Anais for being a supporter of SIDS Awareness month and sharing the benefits of muslin and the cozy sleeping bag in the prevention of SIDS.

I would have loved these when JDaniel was younger. Who knew a pacie was a help to preventing SIDS. JDaniel loves his.
