Washing & Care
Nanit Breathing Wear is made of 100% cotton and is machine washable and dryer safe. Please follow the below tips to ensure proper care:
- Like any new clothing for your baby, it is recommended to wash Nanit Breathing Wear before your first use.
- Close the Breathing Band or Swaddle flap before washing.
- Machine wash on a cold, gentle cycle with like colors.
- Use non-chlorine bleach only if needed.
- Tumble dry on low heat.
Creating a Safe Sleep Environment
- Always put your baby on their back. Even if your baby has already started to roll, put them to sleep on their back at the start of each and every night.
- Put your baby to sleep alone in their own crib. Bassinets are also safe. Avoid carseats, swings, and strollers. Cribs are the safest sleeping environment for your baby.
- Clean, empty cribs are safest. Objects like bumpers, pillows, blankets, and toys can pose very serious suffocation and strangulation hazards.
- Use a firm, flat mattress with a fitted sheet. If your baby's mattress indents noticeably when they lay on it, it's not firm enough.
- Keep curious little fingers where they belong. Make sure nothing dangerous is within reach, including wires, cords, and loose bedding or clothing.
- Keep your baby's nursery warm, but not too warm. 68-72°F is a comfortable temperature for your baby. In warm climates, make sure not to dress your baby too heavily to avoid overheating.
- Give your baby plenty of tummy time. Playing with your baby on their tummy is a great way to help build up their neck muscles.
- Trust your doctor's advice regarding vaccines. AAP guidelines recommend vaccinating your baby. Recent evidence suggests that vaccines may have a protective effect against SIDS.
