Your SleepBelt has uses and benefits from the day your baby is born, to well beyond. We've listed some of our favourites here:
- Hands free skin-to-skin (yes, this one is obvious... but it's the most important!).
- Preventing infant falls
- Nap wrap for baby; they can sleep securely while their head and hands can remain free and mobile (thumb sucker, anyone?)
- Easy transfer from chest to crib
- Offers comfort to babies suffering from colic/reflux
- Snug & secure, just like the womb - helps soothe baby easily (a lifesaver in the early days)
- Cuddles baby to you, allowing mom & dad to eat a meal together (no "taking turns"!). Note: Nothing hot over baby!!!
- Hands free breastfeeding (support the head until baby has neck control)
- Secure your breast pump to your chest with SleepBelt... more hands free help!
- Additional support when bottle feeding - allows you to feed with one hand
- Fasten a heating pad/hot water bottle to your abdomen when dealing with labour after pains & cramping
- Keep a heating pad on your back to alleviate back pain (carrying babies all day is hard work!)
- Easy air travel - keeps baby in the proper position for take off & landing
- Snuggle baby while cuddling your older children... great for story time, colouring & games!
- Twin snuggles! if you can get two babies on your chest, SleepBelt will hold them
- As baby gets older, use your SleepBelt to secure him/her forward-facing on your lap - Baby MUST have full neck/head control
- When baby can sit up on her own, you can use it to keep her secure - any chair becomes an ad hoc high chair (do not leave baby unattended)
- Added support for baby in a grocery cart... when they can't quite sit unsupported, wrap your sleep belt around baby's torso and the seat back to help!
- Prevent dangling legs by wrapping a SleepBelt around baby's lower half when in a carrier that doesn't support his/her hips - it will help keep baby in a healthy position
- Provides additional support with a traditional wrap
Not sure which size to get? If you are pregnant and unsure of your post-baby size, we recommend measuring above your belly/around your rib cage; order based on that measurement.
NOTE: SleepBelt is not a weight-bearing product, so there is no weight limit, per se - your baby will outgrow SleepBelt developmentally before they outgrow it physically. Around the 4-month mark, they will begin to notice their surroundings and may not sleep on your chest as often; at this point, you may begin use your SleepBelt for different applications.
