Can I continue to use the Hip Harness Pouch if the harness comes off?

Absolutely! As long as the upper part of the pouch fits your child safely, it is safe to use without a harness. The excess fabric around the legs will not cause safety issues.

Do I use blankets on top of the Hip Harness Pouch?

The Hip Harness Pouches are TOG rated meaning they have an insulation grade making them warm enough to use for sleep without loose bedding, and are designed to replace blankets. It is recommended by safe sleep guidelines to sleep your baby with their face and head uncovered, and their bassinet or crib free from loose bedding, pillows and toys.

How do I know if I have the right TOG to keep them warm enough?

Included in your Hip Harness Pouch packaging is a Room Thermometer and Dressing Guide. Place the thermometer in your baby's sleep environment to check room temperature. Once room temperature is established, use the table to guide you on the correct TOG and under layers combination. The Hip Harness Cocoon Swaddle Sack and Hip Harness Jersey Sleep Sack comes in three different TOGs to ensure your baby is comfortable no matter the room temperature. Our organic cotton fibers are excellent at keeping your baby warm, while being breathable to maintain a comfortable and safe sleeping temperature.
