Sleep Bags and Sleep Safety

April 7, 2016

Whenever we think about a baby being handed to the mother for the first time after being born, the image of an infant tightly swaddled in a blanket with a cute little hat likely comes to mind. This is still common practice in most hospitals, but as more research is done, we are learning that this may not actually be the best practice. If a baby is wrapped too tightly, it can be bad on their hips while a blanket that is wrapped too loosely may come free and could prevent proper breathing. The answer to both of these can be found in sleep bags; think of it as a wearable blanket for your baby. Sleep bags give your baby the room to be able to move their legs which is beneficial for proper hip development while the zipper prevents the bag from coming off in the middle of the night.

Kyte BABY’s sleep bags give you peace of mind, knowing that your baby will not only be comfortable and likely sleep easier through the night but more importantly, safe. Sudden infant death syndrome is scary to think about, but it’s important to know potential causes and how we can help prevent this from occurring. As we continue to learn more about potential causes of SIDS, we know how important proper sleep safety can be. With research pointing to the benefits of placing babies on their back when putting them to sleep, the number of cases of SIDS have dropped by 50%, according to The Wall Street Journal. We also know that bulky blankets may be a hazard that could potentially lead to infant suffocation if it impedes breathing. This is just one of the many things that went into consideration when we were designing our sleep bags. When the possibility of your baby’s blanket falling off is removed, it minimizes the chance of these traumatic events from occurring.

Your baby’s safety is of the utmost concern when it comes to our line of sleep bags, but additionally, we’ve made sure that they provide amazing comfort. Our incredibly soft bamboo fabric delivers unmatched breathability that feels great against your baby’s skin. And because our products are made from material produced from bamboo, they are as good for the environment as they are for your baby. Additionally, if your baby has become used to swaddling, sleep bags will make the transition easier once they are big enough to start using a blanket.

At Kyte BABY, we are dedicated to delivering comfort, simplicity, safety, and security while still providing a beautiful product that you and your baby are sure to love. As the benefits of using sleep bags become apparent, it’s no wonder more and more hospitals and parents are starting to use sleep bags in place of blankets.
