Both mattress pad and bumper have great air-permeability and comply with BS4578. BS4578 is the result of an objective to produce a British Standard specification for a pillow which can confidently be used in cots, perambulators.
The Sleepyhead® Deluxe pod is designed so that the baby's face sit comparatively high in relation to the sides. The sides are low and also rounded. A baby correctly positioned in the pod (on his back) is breathing into open air. The design is made with consideration to not trap used air (breath; carbon dioxide) unlike most bassinets and moses baskets and infant and baby loungers.
Sleepyhead® and its protective sides facilitate correct physiological back positioning while preventing the baby from rolling out of bed, hitting his head against the headboard, getting caught between the bed and the wall, or wriggling down under the covers. The sides also prevent the parents from rolling on top of the baby. Yet, the sides are comfy enough for the parent to have his/her arm over the side to pat and reassure. The firm Sleepyhead® mattress reduces the risk of suffocation, unlike soft adult mattresses.
Sleepyhead® is not designed to prevent a baby from rolling over. However, it’s less likely the baby will engage in such activities while in the pod. Rolling over is a natural development, which should be encouraged during waking and supervised time. Up until approx. 8 months, one must always place a child to sleep on his/her back. However, at 7-8 months if they turn in their sleep, the pod is breathable so you don’t have to turn him/her back on his/her back.
Up until 8 months or so, one must always place a child to sleep on his/her back. However, at 7-8 months if they turn in their sleep, you don’t have to turn him/her back on his/her back. As to bedding, to further enhance the safety of the (supervised) sleeping environment, it is advisable to use wearable blankets, such as sleeping bags. We strictly advise against swaddling beyond the point when the baby starts rolling over.
Sleepyhead® does not harbor heat. A very strong feature which we have seen in our testing both independent and in-house is that an infant does not develop excessive perspiration from body heat with the Sleepyhead®. The materials used in the design allow for air to pass through effectively, thus keeping baby cool and relaxed when sleeping.
