Winter. The months where we hibernate indoors and share plenty of cuddles with our minis. It's about this time of year; that we get many questions about how to keep baby warm in winter at night, and rightly so, it's confusing. You don't want to underdress or overdress them. If just that sentence has you spinning, we got you.
Here are the facts so you can make your own informed decision. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reviewed numerous studies and reports on infant tragic sleep events and came up with the following recommendations. They apply especially within the first 6 months and up to 12 months of age. According to the AAP, the safest place for babies to sleep is: on their own sleep surface (i.e. in their own bassinet, crib etc) within sensory range of the parent (i.e. within range to hear, smell and be aware of the parent).
As new parents, we can often get caught up in the Instagram-worthy look of our nursery, or fandangled contraptions marketed as sleep-saviours. However, the most important thing you can do for your little human is to ensure their sleep environment is set up safely to reduce the risk of SUDI (Sudden Unexplained Death of Infant).
