NOTE: SleepBelt is not a weight-bearing product, so there is no weight limit, per se - your baby will outgrow SleepBelt developmentally before they outgrow it physically. Around the 4-month mark, they will begin to notice their surroundings and may not sleep on your chest as often; at this point, you may begin use your SleepBelt for different applications. Visit our "Uses and Benefits" page for ideas and inspiration.
- Wrap the SleepBelt snugly around your waist, securing the Velcro panels on your backside
- With baby resting on your chest (ear over your heart), slide the SleepBelt up your torso, stretching it gently over baby; the SleepBelt should hug the baby's bottom and torso so that the baby cannot slip through the SleepBelt; ensure that the baby's head remains uncovered
- To remove baby for transfer to crib, simply stretch and slide the SleepBelt down your waist and off of the baby entirely, supporting the baby at all time to prevent falling
- Make sure that you chose the appropriate size of SleepBelt for your body - you want it snug!
- Be alert and aware when wearing your baby; falling asleep while wearing your baby increases risk of smothering, suffocation and injury
- For use when seated or reclined only
- Check on the baby often; ensure that you can always see the baby’s face and that the baby is getting a good supply of air, by making particularly sure that the baby’s face is not pressed against the SleepBelt, your body or clothing
- Ensure your baby can breathe correctly by checking that the chin is not resting on the chest and that the legs are not folded against the stomach
- Do not enclose the baby while in the SleepBelt within your zipped-up coat as this could lead to suffocation
- If using the SleepBelt while breastfeeding, ensure that baby’s nose is not blocked
- Use caution, care and common sense when your baby is in the SleepBelt – do not drink hot liquids over their head, or drop heavy objects on them
- Always check your SleepBelt before using it; check the seams, look for holes due to wear and discontinue use if anything has the potential to harm your baby
- Demonstrate care when wearing delicate or knit clothing
- Ensure Velcro does not rub up against the baby; this may cause irritation
To Wash: machine wash cold, tumble dry low (bind Velcro to prevent snagging).
