SIDS Information from the Mayo Clinic

Sunday, June 26, 2005

"Select bedding carefully.
Use a firm mattress, rather than a water bed or beanbag. Avoid placing your baby on thick, fluffy padding, such as lambskin or a thick quilt. These may interfere with breathing if your baby's face presses against them. For the same reason, don't leave fluffy toys or stuffed animals in your infant's crib. Instead, tuck in a lightweight blanket securely at the foot of the crib, with just enough length to cover your baby's shoulders. Then place your baby in the crib, near the foot, covered loosely with the blanket. If you dress your baby in a kimono or sleep sack, you may not need to use a blanket unless the room is cool or you place the crib near a window in cold weather. "

Sleepsacks & Swaddling

Thursday, June 23, 2005

Our baby sleeps in a sleepsack (the leopard pattern!), but we found that he still needed to be swaddled so he didn't jerk his arms and wake himself up. The solution we found that has worked well is putting one of my husband's long-sleeved shirts under the baby and wrapping the arms around the baby. This way we get the best of both worlds in terms of swaddling our baby and using a sleepsack instead of blankets.

Caring for Your Baby's Fleece Products

Thursday, June 02, 2005

Fleece is an easy care fabric; Easy care- small accident? No problem, simply sponge off or throw in the washer/dryer
Fleece is machine washable, although it is best to avoid fabric softeners which may compromise the anti-pill finish.
Fleece is also machine dryable. It is best to tumble dry on a low setting. While fleece does not shrink, if dried on a very hot setting it may experience some melting of fibers.
When traveling it is easy to hand wash fleece, wring out well and hang to dry. It can easily dry overnight at room temperature.
